F.C Krasnodar vs. Chelsea Match Analysis and Prediction

Two sides that are currently sharing one point in their Champions League Group lock horns this week. Chelsea will travel a long journey to Russia to take on side FC Krasnodar. The match schedules for Wednesday with kickoff at 8:55 pm.

The hosts were held back with a 1-1 draw to Rennes last week. On the other hand, their opponents played to a goalless draw against Sevilla the same week. Both sides are keen on building the gap between each other this Wednesday.

Krasnodar’s inaugural game in the Champions League saw the group stages’ side take on high flying Ligue 1 side Rennes. However, their opponents faced a troubled start with their visit to Krasnodar last week.

Murad Musaev showed how much his side deserved respect in the competition while managing to walk away with a point. A Serhou Guirassy’s penalty was canceled out with a Cristian Ramirez’s equalizer.

However, the Russian side headed into the clash with injury woes rocking the camp. Their misfortunes further sparked following a 3-1 defeat to Spartak Moscow on their own turf during the weekend.

Eduoard Mendy is making a name for himself after an impressive display during their 0-0 draw to Manchester United. A last-minute dive from a Greenwood strike saw the sides share the spoils in a less entertaining night at the Old Trafford.
