Ural welcome Krasnodar in Yekaterinburg in their opening match of the new season. According to the bookies, Krasnodar are favorites in this fixture, though I think different. According to me, Ural could remain unbeaten. But first about the team news in both squads.

At Ural, Othman El Kabir, Pavel Pogrebnyak and Stefan Strandberg left the club, while winger Kirill Kolesnichenko came. Georgian midfielder Luka Gagnidze joined the club on a season-long loan from Dynamo Moscow, as well as CSKA Moscow goalkeeper Ilya Pomazun.

Krasnodar, meanwhile, remain without six players - Christopher Olson, Marcus Berg, Evgeny Markov, Ruslan Kambolov, Igor Smolnikov and Ari left the club. Daniil Utkin has left on loan, but Uros Spajic returns from his loan spell. Striker Vladimir Ilyin is the only confirmed signing, Colombian forward Jhon Cordoba is set to join Krasnodar, but it is clear this match comes too soon for him.

As I wrote above, I expect Ural to remain unbeaten. They are tough opponents generally. Last season they drew 13 times, the most in the league. Even more, they are very unpleasant hosts. Ural have conceded just twice in the last seven home league matches. Overall, they only conceded 11 goals in 15 home matches last season. Ural were better in the mutual games last season - won 1:0 at home and played 2:2 away. I don' think Krasnodar will have an easy job here.
