Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Krasnodar and Valencia take on each other at Stadion FK Krasnodar in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Thursday’s program in the Europa League. Valencia aim to defend their slim lead in the return leg, but that is easier said than done. Krasnodar are a real force to be reckoned with at home and we are positive that fans will see a close encounter at Stadion FK Krasnodar. A man to watch in the way team will be Rodrigo, who has found his goal-scoring touch of late, but we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the visitors. As previously mentioned, Krasnodar have turned their stadium into a real fortress and given los Che’s poor away record, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Russian outfit.
Highlighted Player (Daniel Wass):
Daniel Wass is a Danish footballer who plays for La Liga side Celta Vigo as a winger. The Denmark international was born in Gladsaxe on May 31, 1989 and he started his youth career at BK Avarta at the age of six.
Eleven years later (2006) he moved to Brondby and he made his senior debut for the club in the 2007/2008 season. Wass played for the Danish club until 2011, when he moved to Benfica on a five-year deal, but he was immediately sent on loan to French club Evian. After making 29 appearances for les Roses, the pacey winger moved to Spain, signing a five-year contract with the La Liga club.
That proved to be the most significant decision of his career as he impressed in the 2015/2016 Primera division campaign with Os Celeste, making six assists for his teammates, while scoring two goals in the process. Over the years Wass has established himself as an irreplaceable first-team regular at Celta and it is well known that he made it to the Europa League semis with the Galician outfit in the 2016/2017 season.abc
Highlighted Team (Valencia):
Founded on March 18, 1919, Valencia FC are a Spanish football club that compete in La Liga. Los Che play their home games at Estadio de Mestalla, the stadium which was opened back in May, 1923. The capacity of the venue is 50,000. Seeing that bats are quite common in Valencia, it is no surprise they are nicknamed the Bats.
Valencia made it to the Champions League final on two occasions (2000, 2001), but they were beaten in the title games by Real Madrid and Bayern Munchen respectively. The Spanish club, though, did well to win the UEFA Cup title in the 2003/2004 season, with the team beating Marseille in the final of the competition.
A number of top-class footballers were part of the club in the past, with the likes of Pablo Aimar, Ruben Baraja, David Albelda, Santiago Canizares, John Carew and Gaizka Mendieta all playing for the Estadio de Mestalla outfit. Valencia main colors are white and black, whilst they often where orange jerseys and shorts when playing on the travels.
