Spartak Moscow and Krasnodar football club will meet in the Winline match of the RPL Winter Cup. How will the upcoming duel end? We'll figure it out.
Spartak continues to prepare for the continuation of the season of the Russian Premier League and the Fonbet Cup of Russia. The first match for him after a long break will be the National Cup game against Lokomotiv. During the transfer window, the "red-whites" parted with Miha Mevla and Nikolai Rasskazov, but they replaced defenders Alexis Duarte and Tomas Tavares, who had already made their debuts for the new team. Spartak left for the winter break in high spirits, taking second place in the RPL standings. During the training camp, the capital club beat AGMK (3:1) and Botev Yu Plovdiv (1:0), and in the first match of the tournament, following a series of 11-meter strikes, it turned out to be stronger than Rostov, ending the main time with a goalless draw.
Krasnodar is also preparing for the resumption of the season in Russia under a new Serbian coach, Vladimir Ivich. During the training camp, the team played two matches, in which they won two victories with the same score 1:0, beating Bunyodkor and Sochi football club in the first match of the tournament. Recall that the bulls went on a break being in the middle of the standings, being on the eighth line. They will play their first match after a long pause against CSKA in the match of the 1/4 finals of the RPL Fonbet Cup of Russia. The main advantage of the winter transfer window was the preservation of its leader Eduard Spertsyan in the team, who was interested in European clubs.
Statistics and figures
- Spartak is the favorite of the match according to bookmakers;
- Krasnodar tops the Winline standings of the RPL Winter Cup;
- Spartak have scored one goal in the last two friendly games;
- Spartak won the first full-time match this season with a score of 4:1
I think that the ceremonial guests have a chance of success in the upcoming match, because Spartak will be missing Quincy Promes, and Abascal will need to try to build a game without his leader. I propose to bet on the victory of Krasnodar with a handicap of goals (0).
