Non-champions path in the UEFA Champions League qualifiers always offers interesting duels of teams from top European leagues. FK Krasnodar were a decent threat to Zenit St Petersburg for the title in the previous season, but eventually had to satisfy with the 3rd place and a chance to participate in ULC qualifiers. This squad had a lot of experience in playing European matches in the last five years, so Porto FC definitely shouldn’t underestimate them. In terms of the odds, bookies are offering identical 8/5 odds both on home and away win.
The Russian Premier League has already started one month ago. Krasnodar have played four games so far, and the results have been mixed up. The initial match was a disaster, resulting in 1-0 loss to Akhmat Grozny. However, the squad responded with two big wins against UFA and Sochi, scoring six goals in those encounters. The most recent appearance was good as well – 1-1 on the road against Zenit. Can Krasnodar finally take their first big European scalp?
FC Porto have lost the title in Portuguese Primeira Liga to Benfica after some really unfortunate events. The team has spent a lot of time leading the race, but eventually falling apart. During the pre season Porto managed to beat Fulham, Real Betis and Getafe. They are looking great when it comes to defending, which is one of the main reason why we expect a low scoring affair in Russia.
