FC Krasnodar vs FC Ufa Prediction
Krasnodar secured a 1-1 draw at home in their latest league game, against CSKA Moscow. It was their 12th unbeaten fixture on the trot, and showed their determination to finish in the top-two of the table, which would afford them an entry into Champions League.
Meanwhile, Ufa secured a 0-1 win on the road against Akhmat Grozny. While it was still a win, the fact that it had come against a relegation-battler, took away some shine off of the victory.
At present, Krasnodar come out on top as the favorite. First of all, they had won the reverse fixture, that too on the road while scoring three goals. And on top of that, the team had recorded five of the past six h2h wins, and kept clean sheets in five of the last eight clashes against this opponent.
On the other hand, Ufa were winless in eight of their former ten overall official games, and had a total of two league wins on the road this whole season. Importantly, away from home, the team failed to score at all, in nine of their previous thirteen road games.
Finally, with the three teams below Krasnodar failing to get into form, (all three of whom are trailing by just one point), it’s an opportunity for Krasnodar to gain some lead in their chase for the coveted CL entry. As such, expect the hosts Krasnodar to deliver a win this Sunday, and to keep a clean sheet as well, taking advantage of the struggles of Ufa on the road.
