Stumbling Khimki are eager to pull off a surprise win when they welcome top side Krasnodar in the upcoming league game. It’s 14th vs 5th and the home regulars will have moderate confidence.

Insights:
  • Krasnodar have the fewest dropped points from leading position (0) in Premier League

There should be plenty of energy on the pitch in this game, as both sides have had time to recuperate from their last game. Let's hope both teams are ready to give it all.

Krasnodar have a very long trip to this away game, as there's more than 1300 kilometers in distance to cover. This could prove a challenge, at least for the supporters.
