Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Krasnodar will be looking to get their revenge on Sevilla when the two teams face each other in Russia on Tuesday evening. Krasnodar head into the match following a hard-fought 1-0 win over Tambov in the national championship, but Sevilla are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the hosts than their previous rivals. Pantaleao returns from a domestic ban for the home side, while the likes of Stotsky and Petrov remain in the recovery room.
Los Sevillanos, on the other hand, aim to cement their spot in top two, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Krasnodar. The La Liga outfit proved their worth in a 4-2 win over Celta at the weekend, and we are positive that they will give fans yet another reason for celebration on Tuesday. Suso is rated doubtful for the game, while Carlos Fernandez has been tested positive for coronavirus.
