Ural vs Krasnodar
Russia – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 22 August 2020
Kick-off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: Central Stadium.
The Bulls have been one of the top-performing teams in the Premier League for the past several years. The last season, they had finished third in the table, and qualified for the Champions League playoff.
This time around, they have made a solid start with a 100% winning record except for their game against the runners-up of 2019-20 campaign, Lokomotiv Moscow.
Meanwhile, the Bumblebees have an almost opposite resume. As of now they are hanging by a thread over the relegation cut-off, and last year they had barely managed to stay above the relegation line with a surplus of four points.
On top of that, Murad Musayev’s men also have a great h2h record against this opponent. For the reasons, expect a Krasnodar win this weekend.
Ural vs Krasnodar: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Bulls are on a five-match winning run against this opponent.
- They have also recorded the previous seven overall h2h wins.
- Since 2010, only twice have they lost against this rival.
- The guests are on a three-game winning run at this stadium.
- Not once have they failed to score at this ground over the last eleven years.
Ural vs Krasnodar: Prediction
Yuri Matveyev’s men are on a seven-match winless run, and in the process they had lost five fixtures on the trot. They had also conceded two or more goals in four of the preceding seven of these games, and let in three or more goals in three of these seven matches.
Going on, they have kept a single clean sheet at home since July of 2019, and also had lost four of the past five appearances here.
Meanwhile, their counterparts had won three of their former four fixtures, and recorded a combined scoreline of 9-0 from these three match-ups.
Furthermore, they are on a five-game winning run against this rival, and they have been a usual contender for the European spots in the league for the past several years. Meanwhile, the Bumblebees are usual suspects to end up in the relegation zone.
As such, expect Krasnodar to post the three points this Saturday.
