Ural finally put on a performance worthy of getting cheers from their supporters, after letting them down for four weeks in a row. The hosts welcomed the struggling Sochi to their midst last week and came out on top with a 3-1 scoreline at the end of the ninety minutes.
FC Krasnodar are enjoying the view at the top of the table, where they are currently level on points with four other teams. Apart from the opening day defeat, the squad are unbeaten in their Premier League venture and have picked up the win four times so far.
The visitors held the runners up of last season Lokomotiv Moscow to a 1-1 draw in their most recent clash at home while on the road, they took down Tambov by a 2-0 scorecard.
With Olympiacos shattering the away side’s hopes, earlier this week, of being a part of the Champions League, you can certainly expect Krasnodar to be keen on bouncing back with nothing less than the win against Ural.

Ural vs Krasnodar Prediction
The home team have only just ended their four-match winless drought, that too against Sochi who are one of the only two sides in the table left to clinch a victory. Additionally, Ural have tasted success in just half of their games on home soil so far in the new campaign.
The away side, on the other hand, have been calm and composed in their respective outings and have lost just one of their previous five trips on the road, that too across all competitions.
Furthermore, Krasnodar have been walking away with the bragging rights in their last two visits to this venue in a row and have scored three goals against this foe while conceding just once.
Given the formidable form that they are on in the league at the moment, Krasnodar are the favorites to come away with all three points in this one.
Irrespective of the outcome, Ural have found the back of the net in their last three games in a running. Given that the visitors have also kept just one clean sheet in their outings so far, count on Ural to get their names on the scoresheet along with Krasnodar at the last blast of the whistle.
