SO vs KRS Dream11 Prediction: Rejuvenated Sochi face a stern test when second placed Krasnodar come calling today.
Finally showing signs of life in the Russian Premier League, for Sochi, the revitalisation couldn’t have come at a more pristine time. With the final stretch of encounters beckoning in the marquee league, the unit has finally decided to get up and rub the dust of its back as it strives to fight for survival in the league.
Moving within a point of safety in the league with two wins on the bounce, what will have especially pleased the side’s ardent supporters are not the results bur rather the manner in which they have come about in. The side has torched its way to 7 goals in these wins, pulling off extremely pleasing to the eye performances to stand tall amongst their counterparts and all but pull themselves out of the relegation zone.
However, come today and things won’t be as straightforward for Sochi. In second placed Krasnodar, they are taking on a side which is going to test every bit of resolve will and resilience prevelant in their ranks, a match which will be a true test of whether their reinvigoration is here to stay or was only there to bless the side for a couple of weeks.
Aleksandr Martynovich and Uros Spajic are set to sit this one out Krasnodar with the players yet to recover from their injuries.

SO vs KRS Dream11 Prediction
SO vs KRS Dream11 Goal-Keepers
The mastermind of his side’s last two cleansheets, Sochi’s Soslan Dzhanayev was always going to be instilled in our side for today’s forthcoming encounter. The player has been in pristine form, someone who has all across the season acted as a true safeguard of the side’s goal.
SO vs KRS Dream11 Defenders
The second best defence in the league with a mere 20 goals let in all season, Krasnodar have made it improbable for sides to traverse past them. The side has truly instilled in place a pious structure of sound and compact defending, one which has made it an extremely laggard proposition to score against them.
And with Sochi having struggled to have scored goals prior to their last two matches, the likelihood of a cleansheet takes paramount precedence for the visiting unit today. It’s a rhetoric which sees us repose faith in a slew of defenders from Krasnodar with us indulging in the services of the attackingly inclined Sergei Petrov first and foremost with the player having popped up with the three assists.
Cristian Ramirez, Yegor Sorokin and Kaio Panatela all find a place in our side from the unit with us indulging in the entire backline from the side for the day.
SO vs KRS Dream11 Mid-fielders
With Krasnodar having pummelled sides for 36 goals and Sochi gone onto ship the 28, this looks set to be a clash where the visiting side make life extremely difficult for Sochi. Krasnodar have revelled us in intricate attacking sorties all across the season and today’s encounter looks no different given the identity of the opposition infront of them.
It’s a narrative which sees us earmark 4 goal and 4 assist man, Shapi Suleymanov as our first pick from the side for the encounter with the diminutive Wanderson Campos coming in to partner him up. Elsewhere, the chief constructors of Sochi’s fresh found life, thee goal and three assist man, Christian Noboa and Andrei Mostovoy with the five goals and three assists both earn a place in our framework.
SO vs KRS Dream11 Strikers
At a time when Ari looks set to miss this one out for Krasnodar, the onus grows of Marcus Berg to compensate for the dearth left by the player. And with five goals this season, the striker looks set to fill in the void to make him a must have option from the side.
From the opposition meanwhile, with the three goals, Aleksandar Kokorin will be wrapping up proceedings for us for the day.
