FC Krasnodar vs Fenerbahce Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Krasnodar and Fenerbahce will square off at the Stadion FK Krasnodar on Thursday afternoon in the Europa League round of 32, first leg, with both sides looking to progress into the next stage of the competition. This is Krasnodar’s first competitive game in this early part of 2017, as we all know that the Russian Premier League takes a three-month winter break from mid-December until mid-March. On the flip side, Fenerbahce were held to a 1-1 draw on the road at Bursaspor last time out in the Turkish Super Lig, conceding the goal with just two minutes to go. Moussa Sow gave Dick Advocaat’s men the lead from the spot in the 22nd minute, but this wasn’t enough for them to grab all three points. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

FC Krasnodar Preview

Krasnodar have endured a mixed run of form towards the end of 2016, registering two defeats, four draws and two wins in their last eight games across all competitions. Krasnodar finished in second spot in their Europa League group I table tied on 7 points with the 3rd-placed Salzburg, but they qualified for this stage of the competition due to their better results over the Austrian outfit. The bad news is that Krasnodar are winless in their last four Europa League outings, losing three and drawing once in the process. However, Krasnodar looked pretty solid in front of their fans throughout this Europa League campaign this season, registering three wins, one draw and just one defeat in their five home fixtures. Overall, the Russian outfit have only lost two of their 13 Europa League games in front of their own fans. Joaozinho and Fedor Smolov have been Krasnodar’s most dangerous players in front of goal during the Europa League group stage, having scored three goals each. Regarding their Russian Premier League campaign, Krasnodar find themselves in a comfortable 5th position in the standings tied on 28 points with the 4th-placed Terek Grozni, just four points off the 3rd-placed CSKA Moscow. They are the third best home side in their domestic championship, losing just once in their ten home league games.

Fenerbahce Preview

Fenerbahce’s form over the past two months has been near perfect, as they have only lost once in their last 13 games across all competitions. Fener picked up an impressive 0-1 victory over rivals Besiktas in the Turkish Cup a week ago, but then they were held to a 1-1 away draw at Bursaspor in the Super Lig at the weekend. Dick Advocaat’s men currently stand only in 4th position in the Super Lig table with 36 points under their belts after 20 rounds, just three points off the 3rd-placed Galatasaray. Fenerbahce looked very well-organized at both ends of the pitch throughout their Super Lig campaign, having scored 39 goals in 20 league outings while conceding just 19 in the process. Moussa Sow has been their most prolific player in front of goal so far this season, as he is leading the club’s goalscoring charts with 8 goals in his 13 league appearances. Regarding their Europa League campaign, the Turkish outfit finished on top of the group A table with a point more than the Premier League giants Manchester United. Fenerbahce have only lost once in eight Europa League fixtures this season and are currently on a three-game winning streak. On the road, Fener have only lost once in four Europa League games - a 4-1 defeat at Manchester United back in the middle of October 2016.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Krasnodar’s home form over the past five months has been near impeccable as they have only lost once in their last 14 home fixtures across all competitions. On the flip side, Fener are missing several key players for this game and their recent away form has been a complete mixed bag. I’m backing Krasnodar to pick up at least one point in this one, but I’m also expecting Fenerbahce to get on the scoresheet.
