KRS vs KHMK Dream 11 Prediction: Khimki remain without a win after seven encounters in the ongoing Russian Premier League.
While the Russian Premier League 2020-21 has a long way to go, Khimki’s season looks to heading in only one direction. Yet to register a win in the league after seven fixtures, the side’s campaign is going absolutely nowhere, one directed only towards demise.
Thumped 3-1 by Ural the last time around, Khimki went onto register their fourth defeat in the league with the side’s only points coming with three draws. Its turning out to be a howler of a start for the side, one where the team has offered absolutely nothing in either attack or defence.
This is exactly the side Krasnodar would have wanted to come across today. With an emphatic 3-0 win over Volgograd behind them, Krasnodar will be looking to emulate that display today as it looks to for once embark on a winning spree and climb up the ladder in the league.
This is a foregone conclusion. One of the easiest outings for us to determine, this clash will see Krasnodar dominate Khimki all across the 90 minutes with the visitors doing nothing but acting as bystanders today.
Arsenal Tula are going to be without the injured Mihail for the impending skirmish.

Matvey Safonov, Sergei Petrov, Kaio, Maksim Kutovoi, Manuel Fernandes, Shapi Suleymanov, Kristoffer Olsson, Aleksandr Chernikov, Daniil Utkin, Remy Cabella, Marcus Berg.

KRS vs KHMK Dream 11 Prediction
For all of their issues, the only slot where Khimki have found some kind of solace is the goal-keeping docket. Ilya Lantratov has not only punched above his weight but has been spoken in the same breath as some of the finest names in the league owing to his fortitude and repulsive.
Krasnodar might not have been able to settle into their groove as a team yet but the defence has had no such qualms. The backline established its might right in match one, dominance it has kept intact ever since.
Its seen the side emerge as the most frugal defence in the Russian Premier League. Letting in a meagre 4 goals in 7 clashes, the side’s backline has not only been revered but has reserved its place in the most daunting establishments in the league.
To add to this narrative, the home side comes across a Khimki side which has just 5 goals to its name This clash has all the makings of a cleansheet to see us rope in all of Krasnodar’s defence for the encounter.
We begin with rightback Sergei Petrov who has the one goal and one assist to his name. Joining up are Kaio Pantaleao, Aleksandr Martynovich and Cristian Ramirez.
This trio we are opting for from Khimki will hold the key to the side’s aspirations today. If these three can get going and move in unison, they can keep perturbing Krasnodar’s defence persistently all across the 90 minutes.
We begin with the club’s top scorer, Arshak Koryan for the upcoming outing. He’s scored the one and assisted the one to see him contribute to two of the five goals the club has altogether.
He’s going to find company in Alexander Lomovitskiy and Aleksandr Troshechkin with the two having popped up with the one goal apiece for the side. The home side will meanwhile see the flair of Daniil Utkin lure us towards his pick.
Krasnodar’s top scorer in the league with the three goals to his name, Marcus Berg was always going to be an instant pick for us. Accompanying him is Wanderson Campos, someone who can finally wrench out of his rut when he comes across a side which has been banished for 11 goals.
Captain and Vice-captain
His three goals made Berg an instant pick as our side’s captain while Petrov is the vice-captain.
Lantratov, Petrov, Ramirez, Aleksandr, Kaio, Alexander, Koryan, Utkin, Aleksandr, Berg, Ocampos
