Krasnodar vs Olympiakos Piraeus
Krasnodar are hosting Olympiakos in a rematch of the playoffs to join the Champions League teams. The match will be played on Tuesday, 27 August at 20:00 UK at Stadion FK Krasnodar. Below we offered you best football predictions for today!
After eliminating Porto, our expectations for the Krasnodar squad became very high, with some even qualifying as favorites for the Olympiakos squad, but the first match in Greece largely predicted who would go on after the hosts of their Stadio Georgios Karaiskáki won by 4:0 after a goal by Guerrero in the 30th minute, two hits by L. Ranđelović in the 78th and 85th minutes respectively, and with his 89th goal, Daniel Podence practically stripped his revenge of intrigue.
Over the weekend, the Olympiakos team played their first ever championship match and beat Asteras Tripolis with a minimum of 1-0 to pick up three points.
Krasnodar also had a championship match as it was a home match against Lokomotiv Moscow and it finished 1:1. However, The Black-Greens are still the leader in the provisional 14-point standings, but the teams of Spartak Moscow, Rostov, Lokomotiv Moscow and Zenit have the same scoring asset.
The sports betting companies give Krasnodar a slight advantage in the upcoming match, but it will not help them to move forward unless it is 5-0, and with a single goal from Olympiakos, the hosts need them 6 goals. The Russian team has already done one feat by losing 1-0 to Porto at home in the 3rd qualifying round but managed to score more than 3 clean goals in the Portuguese rematch by the end of the first half. In the second Porto they managed to return 2 hits, but that did not turn out to be enough and with more hits made on foreign ground Krasnodar eliminated them.
In the coming clash, though, I expect Krasnodar to win the match against the not-so-concentrated Olympiakos team, who have already done almost their job and so please their fans at least with a win, even if they drop out of the Champions League qualification for the Russian team, Europa League teams and victory will help them regain their confidence before the upcoming new Euro battles.
