PAOK vs Krasnodar Prediction
The White-Blacks are winless in their last three matches, and they have a single clean sheet from their former four games. On the other hand, their opposite number are on a six-fixture unbeaten run, and had scored a total of 13 goals from their past four match-ups alone.
On top of that, the Russians had won the first leg with a 2-1 scorecard, and thus have a lead in aggregate score. They are also unbeaten against this opponent so far in h2h clashes, and have scored two or more goals in the past two such meetings.
Going on, they are yet to concede a goal in an h2h encounter at this stadium, and are from a much better domestic league. The Greek top flight pales in comparison to that of the Russian Premier League.
Likely, expect Krasnodar to be the better team on the pitch this Wednesday.
