Krasnodar beat PAOK at home, but will the bulls keep the advantage on September 30 – you will find the answer in the forecast. Who will be stronger?
For PAOK, the new season started at the end of August – Abel Ferreira’s team won Besiktas as rivals in the Champions League qualification. Despite the fact that the “black-and-white” were not the clear favorite of this meeting, it was not difficult to snatch the victory – the Greeks decided all the questions in the first half, bringing the match calmly to a 3: 1 victory at “Tumba”.
It was even more difficult for PAOK in the confrontation with Benfica – many wrote him off from the accounts even before the match, as it turned out – in vain. Due to the smashing counterattacks and excellent execution, the black-and-white beheaded the eagles 2: 1, sensationally stepping into the playoff round.
The beginning of the meeting for PAOK in Russia was also going well – he managed to open an account, in general the situation was under control, but positional mistakes in defense and outstanding individual actions of Krasnodar players put PAOK in a difficult situation – a 1: 2 defeat obliges him to defeat the bulls ” houses.
Krasnodar had a poor start in the Premier League – Murad Musaev’s team is clearly betting on the second line, but so far it is even outside the Europa League zone. After nine rounds, the “bulls” occupy seventh place in the table with 15 points, five points behind the second “Spartak”, this taking into account the fact that they were awarded a technical victory for the duel with “Rotor”.
After a 2: 1 victory over PAOK in the Champions League, Krasnodar faced a southern derby with Sochi, which looks more than solid at the start of the championship. The mentor feels the pressure due to unsuccessful results, so he did not neglect this fight, putting his own interests above – he played the main team.
It is quite possible that a serious mistake was made – in the end it was not possible to win, the match ended in a 1: 1 draw, and the key players may not have enough freshness now.
PAOK played three times with Krasnodar and did not win any of these matches – two defeats and a draw
PAOK hasn’t won in the last three matches – defeat and two draws
Krasnodar has not lost in any of the last six matches – three wins and three draws
09/22/2020 Krasnodar PAOK 2: 1
The PAOK mentor, unlike his short-sighted colleague, acted very wisely before the return leg – Abel Ferreira used only three main players in the championship match with Volos, allowing the team to gain strength. Musaev, trying to keep his job, used all the key players, but in the end, with great difficulty, took only one point in the match against Sochi, loading the team to the limit.
Nevertheless, the “bulls” have an advantage, albeit a minimal one – despite the fatigue, the team is quite capable of giving one hundred percent in this meeting for the sake of a dream. Krasnodar knows how to play counterattacks, and this weapon can bring the desired result.
We believe that the hosts cannot win. Forecast – Krasnodar will not lose . In BC Winline, this outcome is offered with odds of 1.75
