FC Krasnodar vs FC Rostov
Date: Sunday, 30 August 2020
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Krasnodar Stadium (Krasnodar)
Both these teams were inside the top five last year. At the start of this new campaign, the Black Greens have been disappointing. Currently, they are on a two-game winless run and have two wins and defeats each. They have five points gap with the toppers Zenit but with a long season yet to be played they hope to repeat a similar finish like last time.
Rostov is sixth in the table right now with just a two-point lead over this upcoming opposition. After winning the last two league games back to back, they have three wins and two defeats in five rounds. But they need to be careful of this particular host especially since they are playing away from their home.
Krasnodar vs Rostov Head-to-head (h2h)
- All three previous meetings between these two were drawn.

- The home side has been unbeaten at this ground against Rostov since April 2014.
- They have four wins and draws each in the eight games during that period.
Krasnodar vs Rostov Prediction
Even though the Black Greens are on a winless run, they are still unbeaten at home this season. Also, in the last eight head to head games against the “Tough Guys”, they have never lost. This spell of play includes matches in both the league and Cup. So I do not see them letting that record go so easily on Sunday. Since the trend in this fixture is to draw more we can expect both of them to share points in this tie as well.
Both sides have a habit of scoring whenever they met face to face in recent years. This trend in scoring can be seen in six of their last seven competitive games across various grounds. Both of them are in good scoring form right now as well. So I am backing this match to draw with both teams scoring goals.
