In the current season, the team has been doing a good campaign within Group J, so much that it won twelve of the fifteen points played so far, three points ahead of the second and third. In the last five games that the Krasnodar played as a visitor, for several competitions, in four of them the team suffered goals. We believe that in this confrontation the Krasnodar will maintain this pattern and end up suffering a negative result.
