Krasnodar vs PAOK – Champions League – In the first leg of the qualifying playoffs for the group phase of the Champions League
Krasnodar vs PAOK – face each other in Krasnodar, the home team Krasnodar and the formation of PAOK.
The Russian formation already knew that they would play against Benfica or PAOK in this round but with the surprising win of the Greek against Benfica, the Russians arrive at this playoff as favorites to win the knock out.
The Greek formation can thank Benfica’s lack of efficiency in the last round since the Portuguese could and should reach the half time with a 1 or 2 goal advantage, which would make life very hard to the Greek.
The Krasnodar formation has already played a lot of games in this new season since in the Russian league and after 8 rounds played, the Krasnodar team stands currently in the third position with 14 points won due to 4 wins, 2 draws and 2 defeats, with a total of 17 goals scored and 6 conceded.
Playing at home, this formation has won 2 matches and tied another 2, with a total of 11 goals scored and 4 conceded.
Krasnodar comes from a big win in the last round of the Russian league beating Kimkhi at home by 7 goals to 2.
The PAOK formation arrives at this knock out after defeating Benfica by 2 goals to 1.
The Greeks had the luck in the first half due to all the waste from Benfica and in the second half they were more daring and exploring better the gaps in Benfica’s defense, taking advantage of the total lack of inspiration from the reds and managing to win the match.
Abel Ferreira will not face an easy task in this visit since PAOK despite beating Benfica has shown a lot of frailties.
PAOK’s formation following the preparation for this match, tied 1-1 at home for the Greek league against Atromitos.

Krasnodar vs PAOK- Prediction:
Playing at home and against a PAOK team which posesses less quality than the Russians, I believe in a Krasnodar win in this match.
However, Krasnodar is already warned before what happened in the last round with PAOK beating Benfica.
