Also because of their strong bear center forward Rodrigo Valencia CF should have been through long ago. In the first leg last week, the Brazilians scored the two goals for the early 2-0 lead with the Spanish passport, before the Murciélagos had a lot more chances to draw away with further hits in the following years. Thanks to a strong performance in the second half of the match, the Russians were able to score a highly explosive starting point for this second leg at Krasnodar Stadium: Murad Musaev’s side have already won 1-0 to reach the Europa League quarter-finals.
Today’s Football Prediction Krasnodar vs Valencia
The fact that FK Krasnodar has an excellent chance of bowing out of the competition after Bayer Leverkusen’s next European top team is also evident from its strong home record. In Russia, the Russians (Byko) won 17 of their 25 home matches in UEFA competitions (four draws and two defeats) and have all remained undefeated in the last six games (five wins, one draw). They beat Sevilla FC in the first round, which is an important factor in their prediction at Krasnodar vs Valencia. So Los Ches are indeed in the role of favorites (at least beat at Krasnodar vs Valencia, the odds of bookmakers in the direction of the Spaniards); The Taronges is still facing a very difficult game in the southwest of Russia.
Krasnodar – Statistics & Current Form
The relatively young Russian first division club FK Krasnodar, which was founded in 2008 by a football-crazy owner of a Russian retail chain, has not yet achieved any success in the form of titles won. A single cup final, which was lost in 2014 by penalty shoot-out against Rostov, is up for grabs. The more promising it looked in the Russian Championship for the Bulls after the fully completed first round, as the Black Greens could set themselves as the main pursuers of Zenit St. Petersburg. Just three games old is the season 2018/19 now but after the long Russian winter break and it does not look good for the Byki. In the Cup Krasnodar lost 1-0 in Rostov and is eliminated. And in the championship two draws against Spartak Moscow and Underdog Orenburg were enough to extend the gap to the current leaders to five points.
“I can not say who is the favorite now.” – Murad Musayev
Once again, there is little evidence that the mature team, which has been representing the Russian Premjer League regularly in the Europa League for some years now, is taking the first title in their short club history this season. But at least in the second most important competition for European club teams another surprise is possible after this season’s record Sevilla home could be defeated 2-1 at home before Bayer Leverkusen was defeated at the beginning of the knockout phase because of the away goals control. Although FK Krasnodar have not yet won a single victory in six competitive games in 2019 (four draws, two defeats), at least the overall record is 17 home wins from 25 games in UEFA competitions. Even an away defeat in a knockout game could turn the troupe of Murad Musayev ever – even against a Spanish team, as Real Sociedad 2014/15 after a 1-0 home win a 3-0 defeat in Russia had to accept. At Krasnodar vs Valencia is a tip on the strong home Byki thus basically playable.

↳ Safonov – Slotskiy – Spalic – Martynovich – Petrov – Olsson – Kaboré – Gazinskiy – Ramirez – Wamberto – Claesson

Valencia – Statistics & Current Form
The bats go with plenty of momentum in this second leg. In any case, the team of Marcelino Garcia was difficult to beat in the current season and prevailed in the “descent” as a group leader from the Champions League, including against Manchester United and Young Boys Bern in direct comparison, as against both teams four out of six possible Points could be brought. Just four defeats are also from 27 games in La Liga to book – and thus half as few as in Real Madrid. Nevertheless, this is currently enough only to seventh place and let the Taronges even a long time in the relegation battle involved, because in low Torgefahr virtually every match ended in a draw. With 15 draws from 27 league games, Valencia CF is Spain’s undisputed draw king.
However, it is precisely this reputation that Los Ches seems to be struggling for these days, as currently a series of four wins in a row is on record at the UEFA Cup winner of 2004, which could even be expanded even further. In La Liga, the bats have returned to seventh place, have parallel qualified for the final of the Copa del Rey and could now with their favorite result, the draw, the ticket for the Europa League quarter-final to solve, for which Krasnodar against Valencia the prediction is extremely favorable. There are also strong balance sheets such as the fact that Valencia have won four out of the last five games in the knockout phase of the Europa League, which took place outside of Spain – in all four cases, without conceding a goal. Valencia CF has also won a first leg in their own stadium 23 times in UEFA competitions in knockout rounds. In 21 of these cases, that was enough to get through, in 13 of the last 14 cases even with an away win in the second leg. In short, a resurrected Valencia does not even think about taking the butter off the Byki.
Expected formation of Valencia:
↳ Neto – Lato – Diakhaby – Gabriel – Piccini – Coquelin – Parejo – Guedes – Soler – Rogrigo – Gameiro

Last Thursday’s 2-1 first-leg win was the first and only match ever between the two fourth-placed national leagues. The Taronges are leading the head-to-head comparison and now want to defend this leadership.

Krasnodar vs Valencia Our Football Prediction
What may have come out in the analysis is the point that at Krasnodar against Valencia a tip on the classic 3-way system is a very difficult affair. So comparatively much may speak for the draw. With this result, however, the Russians would be eliminated, so at some point an assault with open sight would have to take place. And that in turn makes everything possible: the “lucky punch”, a successful counterattack of the bats that pulls the bull in the jack, or a Spaniard defensive down to the final whistle.
Key Facts – Krasnodar vs Valencia tips
↳ Valencia have already reached a draw after progressing 2-1 at home
↳ Krasnodar has won 17 of 25 home matches in UEFA competitions, but will be without victory in six games in 2019
↳ Valencia has reached the next round in 21 of 23 cases when they first won the first leg at home
Krasnodar knows that they need a goal. Nevertheless, Murad Musayev will hardly let his men play in full force from the start. Also, because a single hit reaches the Byki, provided that the zero is behind. Accordingly, Valencia will also be waiting for opening spaces from a stable defense. At Krasnodar vs Valencia, there is a hint that there will be a draw after a tactical start to the half-time break, which in our eyes is the best possible option before two things are practically possible from halftime.
