Rostov vs Krasnodar
Russia Premier League,
Date: Monday, 13 September 2021
Kick-off 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Rostov Arena.
Rostov and Krasnodar are set to drop the curtain on the Gameweek No 7 in the Russian Premier League on Monday afternoon.
After a somewhat slower start to the 2021/22 season, Krasnodar look to have found the right form just before the international break.
The visitors entered this season with sky-high ambitions which is not surprising considering the immense talent the new head coach Viktor Goncharenko has on disposal.
The former CSKA Moscow head coach has a star-studded attacking line featuring Jhon Cordoba, Viktor Claesson, Tonny Vilhena, and Remy Cabella.
Cordoba has already scored five goals and delivered two assists in six appearances this term, while Cabella and Claesson have also played their parts in some positive results.
Krasnodar will travel to Rostov-na-Donu on the back of two wins in the last three Premier League outings.
Goncharenko’s troops looked particularly impressive in the previous round when they easily dispatched Rubin Kazan 2-0 on the home patch.
The match against Rostov is an ideal opportunity for Krasnodar to keep their fine spell of form going.
The hosts boast the second-worst defensive record in the division with 12 goals shipped in the inaugural six matches.
They are yet to keep a clean sheet this term and they failed to see off the rock-bottomed Ural in a 1-1 draw in the previous round.
Rostov vs Krasnodar Head-to-head
- The head to head record also favors Krasnodar here. The visitors won 14, drew 12, and lost only 4 of 30 matches against Rostov.
- Krasnodar celebrated a 1-3 victory when they last visited Rostov Arena in mid-May this year.
- Both teams scored in three of the last four head to head affairs.
- Rostov won only 1 of 13 home clashes against Krasnodar.
Rostov vs Krasnodar Prediction
We can hardly see any other scenario but a comprehensive away win here. Krasnodar want to join the battle for the UEFA Champions League positions and they can ill afford to drop points against teams like Rostov.
