The hosts have been leaking goals in their recent Premier League matches, and Al Hain-Cole expects both attacks to flourish when another accomodating defence visitsFC Krasnodar will be hoping to record their first win of the Russian Premier League season when they welcome Amkar Perm to the Kuban Stadium on Monday.
Slavoljub Muslin’s men have only lost one of the last seven meetings between these sides, and are 8/13 (1.62) favourites with bet365 to pick up all three points this time out.
However, the visitors have now gone four league games without tasting defeat, and are available at 19/4 (5.75) to win on the road for the first time in 10 attempts.
Two of these opponents’ last three encounters have resulted in a draw, and you can get odds of 13/5 (3.60) on this one finishing all square.
Recent encounters between this pair have made for entertaining viewing, with 11 goals scored in just three matches, and there is no reason to believe that Monday afternoon will be any different.
Byki’s stuttering start to the season has seen them concede four goals in each of their opening two games, meaning them have now kept just one clean sheet in their last nine league fixtures.
Considering Stanislav Cherchesov’s side have seen their defence breached in each of their last 10 away games in the Premier League, odds of 10/11 (1.91) look too good to pass up on both sides hitting the back of the net - that's a bet that would have paid out in each of their last three meetings.
The hosts will be aware that the longer they go without winning, the more difficult they will find it to collect those elusive three points, and confidence will be fragile going into this match after a difficult start to the campaign.
In contrast, Krasno-Chernye have benefited from a favourable opening two fixtures to amass four points already, and will head to Krasnodar in high spirits.
Interestingly, the away side have opened the scoring in each of the last five games between these teams, and with Amkar the more confident outfit, it would be no surprise if they continued that trend on Monday, at odds of 21/20 (3.10).
