      Sparta Prague vs Krasnodar Predictions

      Sparta Prague won three games and drew the other three as they advanced through a relatively easy Group K, along with German side Schalke. Traditionally, a tough team in Europa League play, the quality of this season’s edition will get its first real test in this tie against Krasnodar. They are currently trailing Viktoria Plzen in the Czech Liga, but they’ve been in excellent form of late winning three games away from home.

      FC Krasnodar are one of the lesser known Russian Premier League teams. They’re currently fifth in the table and don’t have the same legacy of success as Lokomotiv Moscow, CSKA Moscow or Zenit St Petersburg. They were helped by a mediocre group and it is worth noting that their one loss came in their toughest away game, it’ll be interesting to see how they fare here, but there’s no doubt that they’ll be a threat in this competition after winning a game against Bort. Dortmund in the group stages.


      These two teams have played club friendlies in 2014 and 2013. The first time they met, in Prague, Krasnodar beat Sparta Prague 3-2, while one year later they drew 1-1 in Russia.
