Krasnodar vs Fenerbahce Match Betting Preview

The Krasnodar vs Fenerbahce match will be played on Thursday, at the Krasnodar stadium, Krasnodar. Krasnodar finished second in group I behind Schalke, while Fenerbahce was great in Europa League group phase and they finished first in group A, in front of Manchester United! This is the first leg of first knockout round in Europa League.

Krasnodar Betting News

Krasnodar is currently 5th in Russian Premier League, with 28 points. However, we can’t evaluate their current form, since the winter break still lasts in the Russian league. They played six friendly matches during the break and they recorded three victories, two draws and only one defeat. On the other hand, we must state that all slightly stronger opponents stayed undefeated in those matches. Before the break, Krasnodar was in a terrible form, with only two victories in nine consecutive matches.

Fenerbahce Betting News

Fenerbahce is currently 4th in the league, with 36 points and they are extremely unhappy with the situation in Turkish Super Lig.  However, they are in a good form at the moment, with only one defeat in their last 14 matches in all competitions. They are hoping to continue that string and reach the top of the table, so maybe they won’t focus on the forthcoming match that much. On the other hand, Fenerbahce already topped Manchester United, which is probably the best team in this competition on paper, so there is no reason to retreat in front of easier opponent.

Krasnodar vs Fenerbahce Match Betting Prediction

In the group phase, both teams scored eight goals and they were pretty efficient. In addition, Fenerbahce conceded six, while Krasnodar conceded eight goals which means that both teams to score seems as a reasonable choice in this match. Fenerbahce is certainly a favourite on paper, but they will be happy with a draw in the forthcoming match.
