Team News: FC Krasnodar
FC Krasnodar manager Murad Musayev will be grateful to have no fitness worries to speak of coming into this clash owing to a fully healthy squad available for selection.
Team News: Ural
Thanks to a largely healthy squad, there is only the lone fitness problem for the Ural boss Yuri Matveyev to be concerned about. Roman Emeljanov (Muscle Injury) won’t be in action. Andrey Egorychev is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
We believe that FC Krasnodar will likely create the chances to score more than once when they line up against Ural, who might well find it difficult scoring a goal of their own.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a decent 2-0 margin for FC Krasnodar at the end of this one.
