Match Date: 02 October 2014 (local time)

Venue: Kuban, Krasnodar


A confident Krasnodar faces will face Everton in an attempt to continue its spectacular run in the Europa League.


Krasnodar has already snatched a point during its encounter against Lille and the club is eager to score more points and be one of the dominant forces in its group.


The contenders


It cannot be denied that Lille had a hard time playing against Krasnodar. The latter took the early lead during the first half and this forced the French opposition to score a goal instead of lingering within the realms of defeat.


Considering the fact that Krasnodar has managed to shine despite playing in foreign territories, gives them the confidence to be more efficient at home. The truth is they are the match’s online betting favorite and will most likely dominate the clash against Everton.



Everton’s poor Premier League performance might hinder the club from directing its focus in the tournament. Its current state presents high possibility of creating chaos in terms of prioritizing their matches.


Certainly, the Europa League is as important as the Premier League. Both are equally instrumental to their rise and to do this, Roberto Mancini and his men need to have balance—they need to sustain an undisturbed rhythm focused on scoring points and clinching victories.


Possible head turners

Andreas Granqvist could readily feature in the upcoming match. Watch out as this Krasnodar defender prevent any goal scoring opportunities from the visitors.
