Krasnodar vs Orenburg
Russia – Premier League
Date: Monday, 11th March 2019
Kick-off at 16.30 UK/ 17.30 CET
Venue: Krasnodar Stadium (Krasnodar).
Krasnodar managed to cut down the lead of Zenit Petersburg at the top by five points in the last five match-days, and just have three more to deal with. They also have to deal with the danger looming below, that is CSKA Moscow, trailing by just four points. Keeping the scenario in mind, they might have got things easy considering they are at home and are supposed to welcome Orenburg, currently floating above the relegation line.
Despite the apparent difference in league positions, both are fairly good at scoring goals. While Krasnodar has scored the most number of goals in the league, Orenburg has registered the second-most number of goals on the road, behind Krasnodar, and in par with the current league-topper Zenit.
