Krasnodar vs Rennes – UEFA Champions League Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction

Group E Match Day 5 encounter, with Krasnodar taking on Rennes on Wednesday the 2nd of November, 2020, at Stadion FK Krasnodar.

Krasnodar are on just one point from four matches in this group, the one they earned in France on their debut, drawing 1-1 with Rennes. Nine whole points behind Chelsea and Sevilla, they know they cannot finish in the top two, but they are third in the table, thanks to that away goal against Rennes, and finishing third would definitely be a success for them. Be reminded, this is the first time they compete in the Champions League group stage. Their current form reads; LLWLL. They last played on Saturday, they lost 1-0 at Khimki, in Russia’s championship. Coach Murad Musaev played a 4-4-2 formation last week against Sevilla, at home, a game Krasnodar lost 1-2, conceding the second goal in the fifth minute of added time(!). They went 0-1 down just four minutes into the match, Wanderson came off the bench at halftime to score the equalizer in the 56th minute, but it was Sevilla who said the last word, with that super late Munir goal.

Just like Krasnodar, Rennes are on one point in this group, the one from their home draw with the Russian side back in October. That goal they conceded at home, is what gives – for the time being – Krasnodar the advantage over Rennes. Their current form reads; DLLLL. They last played on Friday, they drew 1-1 in Strasbourg. They had lost four games in a row before that (Champions League and Ligue 1 combined), scoring just one goal. Coach Julien Stephan played a 4-3-3 formation last week at home, against Chelsea. Rennes lost 1-2, conceding the second goal in added time. They had equalized 1-1 in the 85th minute, through a Guirassy goal. Chelsea had first taken the lead in the 22nd minute.

That 1-1 draw five weeks ago in France, was the first game ever between these two.

Whoever wins this game, will be in the Europa League Round of 32. If there is a draw, the third spot in the group table will be decided next week.

A 2-1 victory for Krasnodar is predicted at full-time.

Date: Wednesday, 2nd of November, 2020.

Venue: Stadion FK Krasnodar

Kick-off time: 18:55 (GMT+2).
