Our prediction for this Champions League match:
A place in the Europa League knockout stages will be at stake when Krasnodar and Rennes face each other at Krasnodar Stadium on Wednesday evening. The Black-Greens were on the verge of sharing the spoils with Sevilla in their last group game, but los Sevillanos eventually picked up all three points from the match thanks to El Haddadi’s late goal. Krasnodar’s performances are much better than their results, and they are surely capable of matching Rennes at home ground.
Sorokin returns to contention from a domestic ban, while Petrov and Stotsky are sidelined with injury. Safonov has been tested positive for coronavirus. Les Rouges at Noirs, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Chelsea. Martin and Rugani are sidelined with injury, while Aguerd is quarantined. Rennes are not regarded as good travellers, which is the main reason why home win should be considered.
