Krasnodar hosts Chelsea in round 2 of the Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Wednesday, October 28th at Krasnodar Stadium (Krasnodar)
Last year Krasnodar already tried to break into the main round of the Champions League. Then the Bulls beat Porto but lost at the decisive stage of qualification. This time the Russians coped with the task, having beaten strong PAOK in both matches. Moreover, Murad Musaev's men made their debut with dignity and tied with Rennes on the road (1:1). Everybody called Matvey Safonov the hero of that meeting. Now the Bulls will also hope for him. Still, his team will have to spend an extremely difficult segment. Let’s remember that there was also a difficult meeting with Spartak Moscow in the Russian Premier League.

The Pensioners have not shown great results in this season, including in the Champions League. Yes, we can say that the team from London was very lucky with the draw. There are groups that include three grandees. And Frank Lampard's men got Sevilla and debutants, Rennes and Krasnodar. For starters, the English club, which spent about 250 hundred million on newcomers, tied with the Spaniards at the Stamford Bridge. The only thing that could please the coaches and fans is that there were no goals conceded. Maybe Mendy is far from the top goalkeeper. But he has repeatedly shown a quite reliable level and kept a clean sheet. However, there is no such choice in defense, and the mistakes of the defenders can again neutralize the exploits of the attacking group led by Timo Werner.
This is the first full-fledged participation in the Champions League for Krasnodar. Therefore, it’s not surprising that it didn’t play a single match against Chelsea (even though it occasionally played in the Europa League). Krasnodar is an interesting project. Still, its current maximum is a fight for third place. The bet on the visitors’ victory with a -1 handicap immediately suggests itself.
Prediction for the match: Chelsea to win with -1.0 handicap
