On Wednesday, Chelsea play their second match in Group E of the Champions League when they make the trip to Russia to play FK Krasnodar.

It will be the first time the two sides have met in European competition with FK Krasnodar only making their second appearance in the Champions League, courtesy of finishing third in the Russian League last season.

The game, at the Krasnodar Stadium, kicks off slightly earlier then we are accustomed to, at 17:55 UK time.

But what do we know about our opponents?

Full Name – Football Club Krasnodar

Nickname – Byki (The Bulls), The Black-Greens

Founded – 22-February-2008

Ground – Krasnodar Stadium, Krasnodar

Ground Capacity – 35,074

Owner / Chairman – Sergey Galitsky

Manager – Murad Musayev

In their first game of Group E, Krasnodar earned a respectable 1-1 draw away to Rennes.

As usual, we are asking you to get involved and, as usual, we would like you to second guess the starting XI Frank Lampard will opt for.

Simply drop your predicted XI into the comment facility beneath this article and while you are at it, please feel free to drop your predicted final score into the same facility.

In doing so we will be able to see who gets it spot-on or who gets the closest.

  • A good away performance… 3 points and a clean sheet…

    But if kransnodar had a bit more quality, they would have punished Chelsea…

    If Chelsea don’t sort that midfield in the transfer window, this team will go no where.

    I know we are still building… But we need a serious look at that midfield…

    We should be building towards Liverpool like… Not city like.

    United are building towards Liverpool like….

    Though they are ahead of us in the rebuild.

    But we should not over look the importance of tough, functional midfield.

    Kovacic and jorginho? No European top team with ambition will have that.
