Krasnodar vs Sochi: prediction for the Russian Premier League fixture
Krasnodar had a very poor start to the season. Despite being considered one of the main contenders for a ticket to the Champions League, Viktor Goncharenko's team is currently only 6th in the table. However, Krasnodar managed to narrow the distance to 2nd place to three points; in the last rounds, the Bulls defeated Rubin and Akhmat with the same score of 2:0 and drew with Rostov (1:1).
Sochihad a decent start to the season. Vladimir Fedotov's team is in 4th place in the Premier League standings, one point away from the Champions League zone. The Leopards suffered two defeats in the last four rounds, for example, last week they lost to Dynamo at home with a score of 0:1.
This score was recorded in 2 of the last 4 away games of Sochi.
In the last 2 games of Krasnodar, this bet played.
In the last 2 head-to-head games, Sochi scored against Krasnodar in the second half.
Krasnodar have gained momentum in the last rounds. They won two out of three latest Premier League games and came closer to the Champions League zone. The Bulls will try to build on their success and earn three points in the Southern derby. Sochi regularly fail in defense, and Krasnodar's powerful attacking line can take advantage of that. Moreover, the hosts wouldn't mind breaking their winless streak against Sochi.
Our prediction – Asian handicap (0) to Krasnodar
Prediction: Handicap (0) to Krasnodar

Krasnodar scored at least two goals in 3 out of 4 previous fixtures. We don't think that Sochi will be able to keep a clean sheet against the Bulls. However, the Leopards also consistently score and are unlikely to leave the pitch without netting a goal.
Second wager - both to score
