Our prediction for this Russia Premier League match:
Krasnodar and CSKA Moscow face each other in a highly-anticipated clash at Krasnodar Stadium. The Greens aim to make amends for a shocking 1-0 loss to Ural, but they will have to do it without suspended midfielder Pantaleao. Krasnodar want to keep their 100% record at home intact, but the match against CSKA Moscow will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. The Armeitsy, on the other hand, suffered a shocking 2-1 loss to Rubin Kazan at the weekend, with the team dropping to 8th position in the standings.
The capital club aim to get back on course as soon as possible, and they are likely to go for a win in Wednesday’s derby. Given Krasnodar’s attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Alan Dzagoev remains in the recovery room, and, in his absence, a man to watch in the away team will be Nikola Vlasic.
