That is because the two teams have already met once this season in the first leg of their Group D campaign, which saw them battle it out to a 1-1 draw, meaning that an upset could be in store for those booking up a cheap hostel in Barcelona and coming along to the game.
A pair of penalties provided the goals for that particular fixture, with the Russian champions using a similar defensive tactic to that used by Inter Milan, as they battled through the Spanish giants last season.
Rubin's style of play may have seemed a risky one, seeing as though Barcelona recorded more than 80 per cent of possession during the 90 minutes, as well as having 12 on-target shots, but in the end it would pay dividends for the Russian side, gaining them their only point out of two games in Group D so far.
There is a chance that those who head along to this encounter after snapping up a room in one of many cheap Barcelona hostels could see a whitewash by the Spanish champions, seeing as though they swept aside Panathinaikos 5-1 on their home turf in their opening Champions League fixture of the current campaign.
However, it would be foolish to completely write off Rubin Kazan in this match, as there have currently only lost two games out of 24 in the Russian Premier League and are sitting in second spot behind fellow giants Zenit St. Petersburg.
