Ufa vs Krasnodar
Russian Premier League
Date: Monday, 13 August 2018
Kick-Off at 15:30 UK
Venue: Stadion Neftyanik (Ufa).
Monday’s action in the Russian Premier League is going to be opened with a clash between Ufa and Krasnodar.
The hosts had a pretty successful previous season as they finished at 6th place and secured the participation in Europa League qualifiers. They’ve been playing very disciplined football and their good finish propelled them up to the top six.
Although Sergey Tomarov’s side haven’t produced too many goals, their tight defence was winning points for the team.
Ufa opened the current season by winning four points in the first two rounds and they still haven’t conceded. They were one of the best hosts in last season by allowing only three defeats in front of their fans.
Krasnodar were seriously challenging the Champions League spot in the previous campaign, however they remained at 4th place.
Viktor Claesson and the lads were one of the most productive sides in the competition, while their defence could have done a bit better job.
The visitors have been playing excellent at away grounds as they managed to get back home with a win in nine occasions. They booked a defeat and a victory in this one and they are expected to challenge the very top once again.
Ufa v Krasnodar: Head-to-head
- Overall 8 league meetings between the two sides, Krasnodar are just ahead with 3 wins against 2 Ufa wins and 3 draws.
- Seven of those games saw under 2.5 goals.
- Also, both teams scored just once during the period.
- At home, Ufa are without a win in the h2h meetings against Krasnodar, drew 2, lost 2 and managed to score just 1 goal.
Ufa vs Krasnodar: Prediction
Home side is very good at home ground, but they are going to have a trip to Luxembourg for a second-leg clash of Europa League qualifiers. Therefore, they might be more thinking of their continental challenge, while the visitors are more than capable of punishing any lack of focus from the opposition.
We are going to follow the tradition of their matches in this one and we believe this is going to be the sixth match in a row in which one of the sides will fail to score. The crowd shouldn’t expect anything but a tight encounter.
