Krasnodar welcome the visitors Valencia in the Europa League Playoffs – 1/8 Finals. The match will be held on Thursday, March, 14th, at the Krasnodar Stadium (Krasnodar).
In the first leg against Valencia, Krasnodar attained a workable 2:1 result away, therefore, they feature some chances for further progression. Still, the team need only a win at home, while Valencia’s defense looks rather solid and it is unclear if the Russian outfit can succeed to attack. In the first encounter, Krasnodar could score more than once, but the ‘Bats’ played open – they had no choice, as they competed at home; now Krasnodar welcome the guests, and they need to open and win back. The homeside will certainly play first, but unlocking Valencia’s defense (especially if the Spaniards focus on their goal) is challenging. Even if the hosts register a 1:0 victory, they will advance to the next stage, but they won’t probably manage the guests’ counterattacks.

Valencia present a Spanish middle-class side. Lately, they’ve been top drawing specialists not only domestically but continentally as well. In our view, the ‘Bats’ will try to play second, concentrating on the defense. The visitors will most likely show a compact and efficient football. They boast players who may rush forward, thus, the team will fashion their opportunities and won’t struggle in defense. Moreover, any draw will be fine for them.
We predict an extremely boring reverse fixture wherein Krasnodar will fiercely try netting to Valencia, while the latter will smoothly defend and leave no chances to the hosts. Our bet is on under 2.5 goals scored on Thursday.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals.
