FC Sochi vs Krasnodar Prediction and Betting Preview, 15 Mar 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 2-0
PFC Sochi will feature in their third home game in a row when they take on Krasnodar this weekend. Even though they won two consecutive home matches, the host will have a bigger fish to fry when hosting FC Krasnodar.
Match status: 2019-20 RPL - Round 22
Venue: Fisht Olympic Stadium (Sochi)
PFC Sochi has been entertaining their fans in the past week with two consecutive home wins after 8 winless games in their league schedule. They firstly won against FC Ural with a 2-0 scoreline and later defeated Orenburg with a massive 5-1 score on the board.

It has to be noted that both these wins were against bottom-half teams in the 9th and 11th positions in the league, respectively. However, Krasnodar is second in the table with 6 points behind the toppers.

Krasnodar are unbeaten in their last 11 league fixtures, following a 0-1 win on the road in their prior clash with Spartak Moscow in the campaign.

The visitors have lost only two of their overall 21 matches in the contest this season. Both the defeats came on the road against Akhmat Grozny in July last year and CSKA Moscow in September 2019.

It has to be noted that the host scored no goals in the reverse fixture. Having won against home at bottom part teams, the odds will be against PFC in the clash.

PFC Sochi vs FK Krasnodar Team News

Coming into the season as a newly promoted outfit lacking the resources Russia’s big hitters possess it was always going to be a tough ask for Sochi to stay up. Currently in 14th with 21 points from 21 games, the side are in the relegation play-off slot and face a battle to the wire to stay in the top flight.

Nonetheless, having secured wins over Ural and Orenburg at home in their last two outings, Sochi’s position has improved significantly compared to how it was before and there’s a degree of momentum behind them.

A game against a side of Krasnodar’s quality is a real test for the hosts but they’ll be confident in pushing them all the way.

Meanwhile, after finishing 3rd last term, Krasnodar were expected to be there or thereabouts at the top come the end of the campaign and they are once again enjoying a strong season. Currently 2nd, they trail leaders Zenit by 6 points and will want to claim 3 points on Sunday to keep their small title hopes alive.

That being said, whilst they are close to unstoppable at home, dropping just 4 points there all campaign, Krasnodar are a bit sketchier on the road and that’s a concern coming into this trip.

Indeed, they’ve won just 2 of their last 5 away league matches and that’s a steak they simply have to improve upon if they want to run out champions.

Ultimately, we’re expecting an open and exciting game, with both sides pushing for the win. Sochi need 3 points for their battle for survival, whilst Krasnodar cannot afford to let Zenit go any further clear at the top of the table; creating a dynamic which compels both teams to attack.

FC Sochi vs Krasnodar Predictions

All things considered, backing Both Teams to Score looks the best way to play as far as the betting is concerned and is something we’re more than happy to do.

Both teams have scored in 6 of Sochi’s last 7 league games, as well as in 7 of Krasnodar’s last 10 in league action and we fancy both themes to continue in a 1-1 draw. Krasnodar are a better team than the hosts but Sochi are arriving off the back of some good results and look capable of taking something from the game.
