Krasnodar take on Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League group stages on Wednesday. Both sides are looking for their first win in the competition after kicking off their European campaigns with draws.

Krasnodar Form


Krasnodar have had a tough start to the new Russian Premier League season, finding themselves 8th in the table after 12 games. Such form leaves them in a desperate chase to seal Champions League qualification for next season but facing a significant uphill battle to do so.

They made a positive start to this year's Champions League campaign after picking up a 1-1 draw against Rennes away from home. Despite falling behind Sehrou Guirassy’s penalty, Krasnodar equalised just three minutes later through Christian Ramirez to take a point back to Russia with them. 

They were unable to add to that result on the domestic front after losing 3-1 at home to Spartak Moscow at the weekend.

Krasnodar Team News


Viktor Claesson and Sergei Petrov will both miss out on Wednesday due to injury. Aleksandr Martynovich should retain his place in the team despite his red card against Spartak Moscow.

Chelsea Form


Chelsea made it three draws on the bounce in all competitions after their 0-0 bore draw away to Manchester United in the Premier League. 

Frank Lampard took a pragmatic approach at Old Trafford as Chelsea fans watched their team draw back-to-back games 0-0 after also doing so against Sevilla in the Champions League last week.

New goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has kept a clean sheet in each of his last three appearances for the Blues.

Chelsea’s form is patchy to say the least, having won just one of their last six games in all competitions.

Chelsea Team News


Kepa Arrizabalaga (shoulder) and Billy Gilmour (knee) are both ruled out for Chelsea. It will be interesting to see whether Frank Lampard sticks with a back three or reverts back to a back four on Wednesday.

Krasnodar vs Chelsea Head to Head


The talent in this Chelsea squad is comparable to that of some of the biggest teams in Europe. While they haven’t quite clicked yet, I feel it’s only a matter of time before Chelsea begin to gel and this could be a good opportunity for them to gain some confidence.

Attacking players Kai Havertz, Christian Pulisic and Timo Werner are still adapting to playing alongside each other, but could they come good against Krasnador?

While Chelsea haven’t performed anything close to their potential in the early weeks of the season, I fancy them to pick up some confidence from this Champions League fixture. I’m backing Chelsea to win and for Timo Werner to get on the scoresheet.
