Over their past half dozen clashes, the sum of 21 goals have been scored for both teams combined (at an average of 3.5 goals per game) with 5 of these being chalked up by Byki. That sort of pattern might not follow through into this match, of course.

Artyom Timofeyev (87') scored for Terek Grozny.
For 5 of the past 6 clashes featuring Tambov, a relatively low number of goals have been scored between them and their opposition. The overall average goals scored per game within that period comes to a mere 1.67, with the average goals for The Wolves standing at 0.67.

Team News: Tambov
Thanks to a completely healthy squad to choose from, Tambov manager Sergei Pervushin doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of before this clash. The players who will not be able to play in this game through being suspended are German Onugkha and Guram Tetrashvili.
It’s likely that Tambov will have to play really well to be putting goals past a FC Krasnodar side who look likely to create a lot of chances for themselves and convert these into goals.
We predict a very comfortable 3-0 victory for FC Krasnodar at the end of the 90 minutes.
