Krasnodar Prediction

Krasnodar will feel they have a great opportunity to progress through to the quarter-finals stage of the Europa League as they return to their Stadion FK Krasnodar needing just a slender win to send them through to the last eight of this competition.

However, this may well be easier said than done as the Russian club have now gone six matches without a win in all competitions with four of these matches ending in stalemates; 0-0 and 1-1 home and with Bayer Leverkusen along with back-to-back draws in the Russian Premier League against Spartak Moscow and Orenburg.

Krasnodar do hold a pretty decent set of results in recent times at home in the Europa League though as the hosts have lost just once in their last nine home ties in this competition which was a 2-0 loss to Celta Vigo.

Defender Martynovich is ruled out though due to suspension as is midfielder Kabore, so the hosts won’t be at full strength for this crucial return leg at their Stadion FK Krasnodar.


Key-Facts – Krasnodar v Valencia

  • Krasnodar have lost just 1 of their last 9 home ties in the Europa League
  • Valencia have won their last 4 matches in all competitions on the trot
  • Valencia have won 6 of their last 9 away ties in the Europa League


Valencia Prediction

Valencia head into this decisive 2nd leg on the back of a four-match winning streak having recorded wins against Real Betis in the Copa del Rey, victories against Athletic Bilbao and Girona in La Liga and the 2-1 home win against Thursday night’s opponents, Krasnodar in the 1st leg of this round of 16 Europa League tie.

Looking at Valencia’s results away from home in recent times in the Europa League, and you’ll notice that the visitors have had the majority of their problems against their Spanish counterparts, namely, Sevilla and Athletic Bilbao whom they’ve lost to in recent times, 2-0 and 1-0 respectively.

Those results aside, Valencia have won 6 of their other 7 matches on the road at this level, and they also possess strong pedigree in the Europa League and should have enough about themselves to secure their passage through to the quarter-finals of the competition.

Forwards Gameiro (4 goals) and Rodrigo (5 goals) give the visitors an outlet here, and just one goal from Valencia is likely to put a major spanner in Krasnodar’s works as the hosts chase a win here.

Betting Tips Verdict

Krasnodar will be on the front foot here, but Valencia can hit them on the counter-attack and should be able to at least avoid defeat in this 2nd leg, which would return our stake for this pick.
