As part of the next match of the 2nd round of the Russian Football Championship, the players of Krasnodar and Khimki will come face to face. Which of the rivals will get the victory in this confrontation?
The players of Krasnodar failed last season, having failed to break into European competitions. Viktor Gancharenko, who came in the second half of the championship, did not have time to save the situation, and the team came to the finish line only on the 10th line. Krasnodar entered the new season much more successfully. The team fought in a guest meeting with Ural and was able to get a crushing victory over the opponent with a score of 3:0, where John Cordoba scored the first goal for the Bulls.
The players of "Khimki" with the arrival of Igor Cherevchenko's team have made serious progress. The team turned from an outsider to an average player in a short time. The Red-Blacks finished in eighth place in the standings. In the first round, Khimki looked quite good with Zenit, but they did not have enough strength for the end. The defeat with the result of 1: 3 dropped the team to the 12th place in the table.
Statistics and figures:
- Krasnodar is the favorite of the meeting;
- Krasnodar players have not lost in the last 3 matches;
- Khimki have lost their last 8 matches;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the teams ended with a score of 1:0 in favor of "Khimki".
Khimki have forgotten the last time they won. They don't know the taste of victories from last season. This time in Krasnodar, the "red-black" also has little to shine, because a team that has missed beautiful victories in the championship will play against them.
