FC Krasnodar vs FC Rostov
Russia – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 3 March 2018
Kick-Off at 16:00 UK
Venue: Stadion FK Krasnodar (Krasnodar)
Krasnodar and Rostov return to Russian Premier League after an almost three-month-long winter break with a clash at Stadion FK Krasnodar on Saturday, as the home side look to return to the winning ways after February losses to Norwegian rivals Kristiansund and Rosenborg. They’ve been in great shape in front of the home crowd and based their top 3 chase on points here, which will surely see them very motivated on the day as well.
Rostov have been picking up their form over the break and managed two wins and two draws in January and February, hoping to build on it and cause an upset in Krasnodar. They sit in the mid-table with 25 points earned in 20 games and points here could come essential if Valeriy Karpin’s men are to challenge the spots leading to European competitions next season.
Bulls have been regularly scoring numbers of goals at this ground through most part of the season, though, and we’ll surely see them as a very tough side to outgun on the day as well. With Rostov’s recently picked up form, we now hope to see an exciting matchup, with both sides desperate to kick off the second part of the campaign perfectly.
