KRASNODAR VS D. ZAGREB
Despite a poor historical record in UEFA Europa League (UEL) knockouts (WI, D4, L5) and having not played competitive football for two months, Krasnodar start this UEL round of 32 first leg as favourites.
Adding to the intrigue, Krasnodar have dropped into the UEL after a poor UEFA Champions League group stage campaign where they won just once (WI, D2, L3).
Dinamo Zagreb topped UEL Group K with an unbeaten record (W4, D2) conceding just one goal in the process. Ahead of this first-ever H2H, Dinamo are aiming to win five consecutive games in UEFA competition for the first time.
PREDICTION: GG & DRAW. CS 1-1
