As part of one of the matches of the 16th round of the Russian Football Championship, the players of Khimki and Krasnodar will clash face to face. On whose side will the victory be in the coming confrontation? LiveResult.Ru gives a forecast for this game.


Khimki cannot find themselves in any way this season. So there were a number of substitutions on the coaching bridge of the team. The recently dismissed Igor Cherevchenko has returned here again. In the last round, the residents of Khimki were able to get the most important score to their asset, having managed to draw with the capital CSKA, which can be considered an incomparable success, even despite the fact that the opponent played almost the entire match in the minority. This score did not help the "red-blacks" to improve their performance. The team is still in the penultimate 15th place.


The Krasnodar team looks much sharper in the fall than at the start of the championship, and therefore the team's rise to the 5th line looks quite logical. The Bulls are strong with a reliable defense, which has failed only 14 times. By the way, the "army" missed so much. The last round for Gancharenko's team turned out to be extremely successful, since the Krasnodar team were able to cope with Spartak Moscow (2:1) in their home arena. The leader of Krasnodar's attacks, Cordoba, managed to register in the national championship 6 times.

Injuries and disqualifications:

Vanderson (ankle), Gazinsky (leg), Martynovich (injury) - all Krasnodar.

Statistics and figures:

  • Krasnodar is the favorite of the meeting;
  • Krasnodar won 2 meetings out of the previous 5;
  • The series of "Khimki" without victories is already 6 games;
  • The last face-to-face meeting of the rivals ended with a score of 1-0 in favor of Khimki.


Krasnodar is seen as the favorite in this match, and it's hard not to agree with this. The Southerners are showing good form this fall, and in the match with the outsider, despite the second coming of Cherevchenko, they must get a victory.
