Like Olympiacos, Krasnodar have made a number of additions to their squad. Meanwhile, forward Christian Cueva, who was loaned out to Brazilian side Santos FC, has made the move permanent for 6 million. They also signed midfielder Remy Cabella for 12 million, along with Tonny Vilhena (9m), Kaio (3m) and Younes Namli (2m). The most notable one would arguably be the 32-year-old Sweden international, striker Marcus Berg, who arrived on a free transfer from UAE side Al-Ain FC.
On the other hand, Olympiacos are unbeaten in their last five clashes at this venue and have been clinching the win by sizable margins in almost each and every one them. Considering that home advantage will also be favoring Olympiacos in this one, it looks more than likely that Krasnodar will be making the trip back home with a defeat under their belt.
On that occasion, the Greek outfit scored twice and posted another encouraging expected-goals-for figure of 2.79. However, for all they impressed in the final third, Olympiacos struggled to contain their visitors, who after posting 1.75 expected goals for were very unfortunate not to score. When playing Plzen at this venue, Wednesdays hosts scored four goals and created an impressive 3.55 expected goals for, while they were once again effective in the final third when hosting Basaksehir during the previous round.
Their previous opponent can only be described as a difficult one FC Porto, and after they lost to the Portuguese side at home by 0-1, they managed to pull a stunning comeback and win 2-3 in Portugal, going through on away goals. Krasnodar have the opportunity of being the third team from Russia to compete in the group stages of the Champions League this season, having finished in third place behind Zenit Saint Petersburg and Lokomotiv Moscow. They currently occupy the third place again, behind the same rivals in the same order, but there is a long way to go yet.
mathematical football predictions
Krasnodar struggled to get going at home during the previous round, as they lost by a goal to nil, but the Russians came to life on the road. In Portugal, Krasnodar didnt exactly dominate in terms of chances created, but scored three goals by being deadly on the break. In that game, Sergei Matveevs men proved that they can be deadly on the break, which bodes well ahead of a match against an Olympiacos side that has been expansive at home.

They first managed to get past Polish side Plzen trough a goalless away draw and an emphatic 4-0 win at home. Then it was Turkish side Istanbul Basaksehir in the third round who made way for them after the Greeks won both legs, 0-1 and 2-0, respectively. Their domestic exploits landed them in the second qualifying round for UEFAs elite club competition this season. Olympiacos finished second in the Super League Greece last season despite winning each of their last five games, five points behind champions PAOK.
However, Olympiacos, who shipped 1.75 and 1.97 expected goals during the last round, looked very shaky against Basaksehir, while they also looked susceptible to the counter. In the betting, Over 2.5 Goals & Both Teams to Score stands out as a viable option. Add in the fact that the visitors thrived (in an offensive sense) when playing on the break against Porto and we can conclude that backing the goals to arrive in no small number on Wednesday is the way to go. If their last two efforts at Karaiskakis Stadium are anything to go by, then the hosts have more than enough quality to do some damage against a Krasnodar back-line that shipped twice in Portugal.
