Venue: Stadion FK Krasnodar.
Game Week 6 of the Russian Premier League brings us the match between Krasnodar and Amkar. The hosting team hasn’t been defeated at home for the last eleven matches and they are sure hoping to continue in that manner.
With 10 points, Krasnodar is sitting at the 3rd place in the league table. They came out as winners three times so far this season. Their only loss for this season was an away match against Spartak Moscow when they lost 2 – 0. That is actually their only loss in the last 15 games.
One of their strongest assets is the experienced defence with Naldo and the team captain Granqvist.
They are in a good shape in general. Great performance is not only evident in the Premier League, but also in the Europe League Qualifications. Their upcoming match in the Qualifications is the finals against Belgrade’s Red Star.
Sitting at the last, that is, 16th place in the league table, Amkar is hardly an example of the successful team. In five weeks of the season so far they haven’t managed to score a goal. Their only point comes from the 0 – 0 draw of the previous match against Ufa at home.
