Krasnodar vs Tambov Prediction
FC Krasnodar further extended their eight-match unbeaten streak in all competitions by pulling off a 1-0 win over Swiss outfit Basel last week at home in the Europa League. The hosts were much the better side in that clash and finished the ninety minutes with four shots on target as opposed to their foes who managed just one.
Sergey Galitsky’s men have been tough to beat back in their domestic campaign too. They have not featured at the losing end in any of their previous seven games. At the moment, the home side are sitting fourth on the ladder, six points behind table-toppers Zenit.
Meanwhile, FC Tambov made a return to losing ways on home soil, after Lokomotiv Moscow did just enough to post a 3-2 scoreline in their most recent fixture. It was the first defeat in four games for the visitors and has certainly put a damper on their attempts to hop out of the relegation zone.
It is also worth mentioning that FC Tambov have just two wins to boast of on the road so far. One of which, was against the struggling PFC Sochi. Furthermore, the reverse fixture of this matchup did not end well for the guests either.
To pile on the misery, the hosts are yet to stumble in front of the home crowd. Hence it is certainly safe to count on FC Krasnodar to secure the bragging rights in this one.
Additionally, it needs saying that FC Tambov have started to show signs of promise. And are not the side that they were at the start of the campaign. The visiting contingent have been consistent in finding the back of the net at least once in each of their previous three outings.
On the other hand, Krasnodar are without a clean sheet to their name in their four of their last five Premier League matchups at home. As such, count on FC Tambov to go down swinging and to bag no more than a consolation goal come Monday.
