Matt Tips Another Defeat For Swansea
Premier League legend Matt Le Tissier the tips Kuban Krasnador to get the better of Swansea in their Europa League clash at the Kuban’ Stadium on Thursday.
Michael Laudrup needs a reaction from his players following three successive defeats, the latest at the hands of bitter rivals Cardiff City in their first ever Premier League clash on Sunday. The Swans will be without a number of key players for the trip to Russia with Michu, Pablo Hernandez, Garry Monk and Jonjo Shelvey all absent with injury.
Swansea top the group with two wins and a draw from three games and would put one foot in the knockouts should they manage to win in Kransodar.
Matt Le Tissier tips: “The Swansea players are on a downer after three straight defeats and won’t relish a trip to Russia with an under strength squad.
Krasnodar snatched a late equaliser in Swansea and can go one better with victory on their own patch. 9/5 at BetVictor looks decent value for the home win and punters looking for the first scorer could plump for Ivelin Popov. He has opened the scoring twice in the Europa League so far and is available at 8/1 with BetVictor.”
Kuban picked their only point in Group A when Djibril Cisse struck in the final seconds to earn a 1-1 draw at the Liberty Stadium a fortnight ago. The Russians have recovered from a poor start to the season and are undefeated in the last four games in normal time, they lost out on penalties in a Cup game at Ryazan last week.
They won their last home game 2-0 against Anzhi and have climbed to eighth in the Russian Premier League with 20 points from 15 games.
