SO vs KRS Dream11 : Newly promoted Sochi head out in pursuit of their first win after failing to come to terms with the competition in RPL.
Having been promoted into the Russian Premier League for the 2019-20, Sochi knew that they couldn’t afford to rest on their laurels if they wanted to continue to continue on the ascendancy that had born them unprecedented success. Unfortunately for the side, the opening exchanges in the land of the Russian Premier League have seen the side slump to two successive defeats, seeing them sit right in the bottom of the league standings.
A 1-0 defeat against Spartak Moscow was followed by a 2-0 loss against Zenith in the previous match, leaving Sochi as they only side to yet scramble together a goal after their opening set of fixtures. The side have made for abysmal viewing up the field, leaving their defenders negotiate the brunt of the pressure and try to imbed a framework of success for the side.
Up against Krasnodar today, Sochi’s beleaguered problems don’t see improving any time soon. Not only is this an away match for them but it comes against an opponent who managed to score 3 goals in their previous encounter, a proposition which makes for abysmal reading for Sochi. The one thing they’ll be looking to take heart from though is that Krasnodar akin to them have serious gaping holes at the back, something that would allow Sochi to string together some meaningful moves on the day.
No matter how much we try to put this match in Sochi’s favour, there is not one narrative which sees them emerge as the winner from this one. Despite picking up the pieces in the backline, we see Krasnodar registering their first cleansheet today against a side who have left their supporters infuriated with their attacking displays.
Expect Krasnodar to win this one with comfort and continue their climb into the top 10 of the league.

Dream 11 Picks
Goal-Keeper for SO vs KRS Dream11
Given that we need to pick up the 4 necessary players from Sochi for this fixture, we’ll be beginning with their goal-keeper first. Although a cleansheet is an unlikely proposition for the side in this encounter, Nikolay Zabolotny’s goal is going to be peppered with shots which should see him come up with good save points.
Defenders for SO vs KRS Dream11
Our entire defence is composed of players from the home outfit with them taking on a side who have yet to open their goal scoring account after their first couple of matches in RPL 2019-20. Aleksandr Martynovich, Cristian Ramirez and Ruslan Kambolov are all coming into our side.
While Ramirez at leftback offers a brilliant opportunity to make his way further and get in an assist, Kambolov might be classified as a defender here but sees himself play as a CDM for his side. It makes for an excellent move to indulge him in your playing 11 and get a player who is going to contribute with some astute tackles.
Midfielders for SO vs KRS Dream11
Both of Krasnodar’s goal scorers from the last time around make a way into our playing 11 for a match where the hosts should enjoy a fruitful time infront of Sochi’s goal. Younes Namil and part of his side’s three man pivot in the centre of the pack, Tonny Vilhena are our picks from the side for this match.
Coming in from Sochi is the two man partnership of Yevgeni Pesegov and Ibrahim Tsallagov given their resolute nature to try and fathom something up for the side in both the departments.
Strikers for SO vs KRS Dream11
Playing right behind is striker along with Namli in a 4-3-2-1 formation doled out by the side, Krasnodar’s Wanderson is our first pick for this match with Ariclenes Ferreria accompanying him. This is going to be a match where all of the attacking picks from the home side flourish and we are packing our side with all the available options to us from the side.
We have also opted for Sochi’s striker Vladimir Obukhov for this with his pristine work ethic seeing him also put in a rigorous display and try to string together successful attacks for his side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Namli is picked out as our captain for this match while we have Ferreira being opted as our vice-captain today.
