Krasnodar vs Spartak Moscow – Russian Premier League: They’ve kept their cool and started their recovery…
Krasnodar has lived some times of trouble, accumulating several consecutive losses.
Due to the balance of the Russian Premier League, two consecutive wins was all it took for Krasnodar to climb back up the league table.
The team is currently in 3rd place, closing out the Champions’ League qualification zone, but the question is: will Krasnodar be able to keep up the pace of the last rounds? Explaining: In both of those matches, the team imposed itself offensively in a way they weren’t able to do for a long time. They scored 7 goals on those 2 wins.
Before that, Krasnodar had failed to score in several consecutive matches. Despite their home campaign not being so great, they still have some dominance on their own stadium. Confident and with their supporters pushing them forward, Krasnodar is hoping to continue to surprise.
The manager Igor Shalimov has some doubts regarding the availability of Pavel Mamaev and Aleksandr Martynovich due to physical problems.
To climb even further on the league table, having a decisive Champions’ League match next week, Spartak knows it is fundamental for them to keep their confidence levels high by being able of getting a good result in this match.
The team has only suffered one loss on their last 6 matches. Managing to win here would make Spartak overtake their rivals on the league table, for example.
Countering the usual style of the Russian teams, in a moment similar to their rival’s, Spartak has been banking on their attacking line to be capable. On half of their last 6 matches, Spartak has scored at least 3 goals in the match, for example.
Spartak has been a tough rival to face as visitors as well. The team has scored points in 5 out of their last 6 matches. Improving, with offensive power, Spartak wants more. The manager Massimo Carrera will have the same core that he has been using lately at his disposal. Due to a Champions’ League match next week, one or other key players may be rested here.
Krasnodar vs Spartak Moscow – Betting Tip and Prediction:
It is clear that there might be some respect from Krasnodar since they are facing a team recognisably stronger,
However, if they play loose like they have done on their last encounters, considering that the visiting team might enforce some changes, Krasnodar can look to get a good result here.
Spartak is on their most consistent moment of the season and even if they play with some different players – something that wasn’t confirmed yet – they will still be strong. The team has been looking to attack in a natural way.
Due to their moment of form and the way they play, I believe we will end up having an open match with goal chances for both sides.
