In the last winter transfer window, Spartak has improved a lot. He signed contracts with high-scoring striker Shamar Nicholson, talented midfielder Daniil Khlusevich and experienced mentor Paolo Vanoli. As a result, he got quite good results at the finish segment of the RPL. In addition, he won the Russian Cup, defeating Dynamo in the final (2: 1).

However, on the eve of the new Russian championship draw, the Italian specialist decided to leave the post of head coach. Zelimkhan Bakaev and Samuel Gigot also left. On the one hand, the loss of Bakaev was somehow closed, because the skillful Anton Zinkovsky was acquired from the Wings of the Soviets to replace him. But the departure of Zhigot and Vanoli is still very noticeable.

Under the leadership of the new head coach – Guillermo Abascal – Spartak held two official matches after the off-season break. The first was the final of the Russian Super Cup with Zenit, where the Muscovites suffered a crushing defeat with a score of 0:4. The second match took place in the first round of the RPL with Akhmat Grozny. The meeting was marked by a draw, although Spartak was closer to defeat.

The red-and-whites played in the minority from the 41st minute, as Maciej Rybus got a red card. The incident once again aroused the indignation of the capital’s club. Then, in stoppage time for the first half, Grozny managed to open an account. Victor Mozes, who recently returned to Russia, saved the “people’s team” from defeat in the 83rd minute. The Nigerian scored with a stunning long-range shot. In general, flashed individual skill.

The team play of Spartak does not at all inspire confidence, as, indeed, the scheme of Guillermo Abascal. The concept of dominance with high play by full-backs is certainly very interesting, but does it suit the team from Moscow? In recent years, Massimo Carrera, Domenico Tedesco and Vanoli, who prefer power, often vertical and counterattacking football, have achieved the best results.

In the upcoming match, it will be extremely problematic to use full-backs. Quality in defense is already lacking due to the departure of Zhigot and the disqualification of Maciej Rybus. And if the flank defenders also lose ground, running far ahead, then Muscovites, most likely, will face another fiasco.

But Krasnodar lost a huge amount of resources last winter. Firstly, the German mentor Daniel Farke, who had just joined the team, left. Secondly, almost all the legionnaires who formed the backbone of the team left the Krasnodar team.

It seemed that the “bulls” were a few steps away from the crisis. However, the new mentor – Alexander Storozhuk – managed to repeat the feat of Valery Karpin in Rostov. Having only young, inexperienced players available, the specialist managed to build a bright, fighting team, which turned out to be not at all afraid of even strong rivals.

Why Dynamo will disappoint in the derby with Torpedo.

Over the last 12 rounds of the RPL, Krasnodar suffered only three defeats – from Dynamo (0:1), Krylia Sovetov (0:2) and Zenit (1:3). We also tied with Ufa, Arsenal and Akhmat (in all meetings 1:1). In other confrontations, they won victories, including over Spartak (2: 1). As a result, they took fourth place in the standings.

Krasnodar prepared very well for the new season. He had an excellent pre-season, and also improved qualitatively by one of the best players in the Serbian Super League, midfielder Mihailo Banjac. Stanislav Cherchesov won the competition for a football player against Ferencvaros, which is significant.

However, in the match of the first round of the new draw of the Russian Championship, Storozhuk’s wards played a draw with Fakel, who got out of the First League (2:2). Moreover, the best player of the match, despite two goals conceded, can be safely called Matvey Safonov. The Bulls goalkeeper made as many as eight saves.

Obviously, Krasnodar, like Spartak, is also not all right in defense. On the other hand, there is nothing surprising in this, in our opinion. The defense of the black-greens still consists of half of the very young defenders with little experience in playing in the RPL. The trust of the coach, of course, gives them strength and motivation. But it doesn’t always save you from mistakes.

Whatever it was, the upcoming match promises to be very interesting and productive. Both clubs and coaches prefer to play attacking football. At the same time, the teams are deprived of a fortress in defense. We believe that the combined bet “both teams to score + total over 2.5 goals” will play. Coefficient – 2.09. The history of face-to-face meetings is not against it at all. The last four ended like this.

Forecast and bets for the match RPL Krasnodar – Spartak on July 23, 2022

Krasnodar, under the leadership of Alexander Storozhuk, continues to develop and improve in quality after the events of last winter. So far, the team lacks reliability in defense, but everything is fine with performance. The situation is identical with Spartak, which lost Zhigot, and in the upcoming match cannot rely on Rybus. I think the only question is who will score more. The history of face-to-face meetings is on the side of a large number of goals, and on both sides. We look forward to an interesting, productive game this time as well.

Bid: both will score and the total is over 2.5 goals for a factor of 2.09.
