FC Krasnodar is welcoming Chelsea to Krasnodar Stadium in round 2 in the UEFA Champions League.
Krasnodar was in solid form, but they have won only 1 of their last 4 games. In their last Premier League game against Spartak Moscow at home, Krasnodar has lost that match 1-3, and they have also conceded a red card. In their first Champions League game against Rennais on the road, Krasnodar has had 38% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 76% of the correct passes. Krasnodar conceded a penalty kick in the 56th minute, but they tied the score in the 59th minute. The final result of this match was 1-1. Cristian Ramirez is the only goalscorer for Krasnodar with 1 goal, while Vilhena added 1 assist. This is a solid group for Krasnodar in the Champions League, but I don’t see them getting to any of the top two spots in their group, and instead, they will be fighting for third place and the Europa League. There are 12 players on the injury list for Krasnodar, and that will greatly decrease their depth and their game style, and with that, Krasnodar’s chances are dangerously low.
Chelsea hasn’t lost any of their last 4 games, but they have 3 draws in a row in their last 3 games. During their last 4 games, Chelsea has scored 7 goals while conceding 3 goals. In their last 2 games, Chelsea hasn’t scored or conceded any goals. In their last EPL match against Manchester United last weekend, Chelsea was solid, and they have created a few chances, but they weren’t able to score a goal. This game ended in a 0-0 draw. In their Champions League game against Sevilla at home, Chelsea has had 44% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, and 80% of accurate passes. This match also ended in a 0-0 draw. There are no goalscorers for Chelsea in the Champions League as of yet, and there are no notable injuries for Chelsea at this time. Chelsea is a good team, but they are still trying to find the best way how to utilize their new players, and how to best incorporate them into the team, but I think it’s only a matter of time before Chelsea starts scoring goals consistently. The biggest problem for Chelsea is their defense that is even more inconsistent than their offense, and it cost them points already this season.
Chelsea is a much stronger team here, and Lokomotiv has a tone of injuries that will seriously impact their game. The price on Chelsea is not great, but I think Chelsea will be the better team here, and I see them scoring at least two goals here. I’m taking Chelsea on the road.
