The best advice I ever got for playing Wehrmacht (and it probably transfers to CoH2 from what I've played) is only expand when you're comfortable with it. With the ami's and soviets you can flail around a lot and keep ground on sheer aggression. With soviets you need to advance slowly, always keep a look out on your flanks and always feel that you're in a defendable position.
Won't work at higher levels - a the T34 spam will overrun any mid-game position.
From what I've played, it seems like that as long as you keep capping, the soviets are useless. As soon as you stop, and become content with your map control, it's basically GG (unless you have a hyper-death ball).
Press the map, and set up kill zones in areas that are contested (mid bridge in Pripyat, mid of that snow map). Really all you need to 'hold' a position is an MG42 and mortar, as the suppression rate is fairly high now.
