Rostov vs Krasnodar: prediction for the Russian Premier League fixture
On September 13, Rostov and Krasnodar face off in the Southern derby. Rostov cannot beat Krasnodar for five games. What to expect from this fixture? Our answer is in the prediction below.
Rostov started the season very poorly. Under Valery Karpin, the Rostovites looked unconvincing, but not much changed with the arrival of the new manager Yuri Semin. Rostov got only 1 victory in 6 rounds: over Nizhny Novgorod away (2:1). However, in the last matches, Rostov seem to have some improvement.
In the last round, Rostov had a good chance to get another victory: they took the lead against Ural in the 76th minute of the game. However, the Bumblebees scored an equalizer and the game was tied (1:1). Currently, Rostov are in the zone of transitional matches on the 14th line in the table. They are just one point ahead of Arsenal in the direct relegation zone.
Krasnodar do not seem very impressive either. But Viktor Goncharenko's men have won three games in six rounds. After a difficult, but exciting victory over Arsenal in the fourth round (3:2), Krasnodar lost to Lokomotiv in Moscow (1:2).
In the last round, the Bulls played at home against Rubin. Thanks to goals by Alexei Ionov and Jhon Cordoba, Krasnodar scored a confident victory (2:0) and rose to the seventh line in the table. They are three points away from the European club competition zone.

Rostov looked decent in the last two games, but they still have too many problems, especially evident in the games against strong opponents. Krasnodar also have experienced some setbacks at the start of the season, but they definitely look more interesting and more composed than their opponents. Moreover, Rostov have a bad record against Krasnodar in recent years.

Rostov lost all the games against big clubs this season, and Krasnodar probably won't be an exception. Rostov regularly make mistakes in defense, and the powerful attack of the Bulls can turn those mistakes into a confident victory.
Second wager - Krasnodar to win by 2 goals
