Spartak Moscow vs Krasnodar
Russia – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 3rd March 2019
Kick-off at 16.00 UK/ 17.00 CET
Venue: Otkrytiye Arena (Moscow).
The best match that the Russian Premier League could offer this weekend. Both are podium contenders, and even maybe have a shot at the title. The immediate objective would be to consolidate their presence in the Champions League spots. And rightfully, both are on unbeaten streaks in their league games.
On equal footing, Krasnodar is the better team. They have posted better offensive as well as defensive stats. But for this upcoming tie, they are handicapped with the away status. And recent h2h games also have not been kind to Krasnodar. We believe these two conditions bring parity between the teams and will lead to a fierce contest on the cards.
Spartak Moscow vs Krasnodar Head-to-head (h2h)
- Eight of the last twelve games had over 2.5 goals.
- Four of the last seven had goals coming at either end of the pitch.
- Four of the last six matches at this venue had the same stat as well.
- These four fixtures had over 2.5 goals also.
- Krasnodar scored two or more goals in four of their last six visits to this stadium.
- Seven of the last nine meetings at this ground saw the hosts registering two or more goals.
Spartak Moscow vs Krasnodar Prediction
Combats between these teams have always produced sparks. The ones at this venue especially have been exemplary in this regard. Except for two meetings at the ground, all the remaining had three or more goals. Moreover, Moscow has never failed to score at their home and registered two or more in seven of their last nine home h2h ties.
This season, in the league, no team has outscored Krasnodar. They have scored the most goals on the road as well. They are also unbeaten in their last five ties in the league.
Considering the impact the result of this game is going to make in the top tier, and the advantages either team could get with a win, it’s a given both will try to attack from the very beginning. Logic dictates that we could expect another goal-fest by these two.
