Krasnodar vs Trabzonspor Prediction & Match Preview

FC Krasnodar vs Trabzonspor
Europa League
Date: Thursday, 7 November 2019
Kick-off at 17:55 UK/ 18:55 CET
Venue: Krasnodar Stadium (Krasnodar).

Krasnodar has come upon a great opportunity to make a strong case for them to progress to the next round. As of now, they are placed third in the table, trailing three points behind Getafe, who’s in possession of the second and final ticket for the Round of 16.

But, since the two toppers are taking on each other, at least one of them are sure to drop points. And with a win against the bottom-most Trabzonspor, the Russians could make up for the missed chances earlier in the schedule.

Krasnodar vs Trabzonspor Prediction

Unal Karaman’s men lost at home the last day. That too against a Goztepe that had lost their previous two fixtures. The match ended with a sole goal from the visitors, which acted as the winner too. This was preceded by a loss against the Black-Greens.

Once again at home, the team conceded two goals in the second half to let their rivals post the three points on offer. Importantly, the second goal had come in the 90+2nd minute.

This tendency to score late goals have been something usual for the Russians. Just the last day, they had been trailing at half-time to Rostov, by a 0-2 scorecard. But the hosts just refused to quit and equalized with two injury-time goals – one in the 90+3rd minute, and the other in the 90+5th minute.

The fighting spirit shown by Murad Musanyev’s men will definitely come to their aid this Thursday, especially with them having an opportunity to make it to the top tier. Moreover, they are unbeaten in their prior five games and were so in seven of their preceding nine at home.

On the other hand, their opposite number is winless in their past three fixtures and remained so in nine of their former twelve clashes.

Taking these factors into account, count on the guests to have a tough time dealing with the pressure from Musayev’s men.
