Our football match prediction:
Thanks to a 3-0 win over Ural Krasnodar managed to put an end to their three-game winless run in all competitions. Igor Shalimov’s men gave fans some cheer at the weekend and they are now fully focused on Thursday’s football match against Salzburg. Krasnodar sit in second place in Group I ahead of the visit of Salzburg and, no doubt, the Russians will be happy with one point from Thursday’s match. Igor Shalimov’s team failed to impress in back-to-back defeats to Schalke, but they are certainly capable of grabbing something from the Salzburg game. The Austrians did well to beat Nice in France, but the game against Krasnodar will be anything but a walk in the park for the Red Bulls. Taking everything into account, we predict that the two teams are going to play out a high-scoring draw at Stadion FK Krasnodar in their penultimate group game.
