FC Krasnodar vs Khimki
Russia – Premier League
Date: Friday, 18 September 2020
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Krasnodar Stadium.
The Bulls had finished in the podium the last season in the Russian Premier League, and had qualified to take part in the Champions League playoffs. They have been one of the best teams in the country for the past few years as well.
In the meantime though, the Red-Blacks have just secured a promotion to the top flight, and that too after a gap of eleven years. Suffice it to say that they are inexperienced. On top of that, they are one of the worst in the league at the moment, and are still searching for their first win.
Going on, they also do have a 100% winless record against this opponent in h2h clashes.
For the reasons, expect a winning performance from Krasnodar this weekend.

Krasnodar vs Khimki: Prediction
The Red-Blacks have just been inducted into the top flight, and are one of the most inexperienced teams here.
They are also placed second to last in the table, and are one of the worst clubs in the competition at the moment. In fact, they would have been placed dead last, if the 16th placed Volgograd did not have a game in hand.
Going on, they are still looking for their first win this season, and only one team have conceded more goals than them in 2020-21.
In addition, they also have a 100% winless record in h2h clashes against this opponent, and most importantly, the Bulls are one of the best teams the Russian League has to offer.
In fact, Murad Musayev’s men had finished third in the table the last season, and had qualified for the CL as well.
By all means, expect a Krasnodar win this weekend.
