Team News: Rotor Volgograd
Rotor Volgograd boss Alyaksandr Khatskevich has a full complement, with no fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this clash thanks to a fully injury-free group available for selection.
It’s our opinion that Rotor may well use a 5-4-1 formation for this game with Alexander Dovbnya, Danil Stepanov, Solomon Kvirkvelia, Azat Bayryev, Cédric Gogoua, Armen Manucharyan, Zuriko Davitashvili, Sergei Makarov, Oleg Igorevich Aleinik, Sergey Serchenkov and Kamil Mullin.
Team News: FC Krasnodar
Due to a fully healthy group available for selection, FC Krasnodar manager Murad Musayev does not have any fitness worries to speak of ahead of this clash.
It’s our belief that Byki appear most likely to utilise a 4-1-4-1 system, starting Matvey Safonov, Sergei Petrov, Kaio, Aleksandr Martynovich, Cristian Ramirez, Yuri Gazinskiy, Wanderson, Tonny Vilhena, Daniil Utkin, Viktor Claesson and Marcus Berg.
We’re inclined to think that Rotor Volgograd have it in them to score against this FC Krasnodar side, although just one goal probably won’t be as many as they’ll concede.
Therefore, we’re predicting a 1-2 winning margin for FC Krasnodar when the full-time whistle blows. It should be a decent one.
