Swansea City v Kuban Krasnodar Preview, Europa League, Thursday 24th October 2013

Swansea City can take a giant step towards qualification to the next phase of the tournament with a victory on thursday night at the Liberty Stadium and confidence will be boosted at achieving this having had an impressive 4-0 thrashing of Sunderland last weekend in the Premiership.

Michael Laudrup’s side currently top Group A having won both of their opening two games and having yet to concede a single goal during these two games, fans and players will be confident of getting the job done.

Kuban Krasnodar play their domestic football in the Russian Premier League and are a club that very little is known about, however we only have to look at their opening two results in the group which they have both lost to see that they are hardly world beaters and it really would be a huge shock if they were to win this game on thursday night.

Swansea City v Kuban Krasnodar Team News

Swansea City Team News:

Ashley Williams and Alan Tate remain unavailable for this one as each player continues to recover from respective injury problems and Ben Davies will under take a late fitness test to see if he can be involved as he currently has an ankle problem. 4-3-3 will be the likely formation that manager Michael Laudrup will choose with Wilfried Bony leading the attack up front with support in behind coming from Routledge, Michu and Pozuelo.

Wilfried Bony and Michu are the clubs current top goalscorers this season having scored 2 each.

Kuban Krasnodar Team News:

No injury problems for manager Viktor Goncharenko, but he will be without defender Charles Cabore as the player continues suspension for being sent off in the opening game of the group against St. Gallen. 4-2-3-1 will be the likely formation which will see either Djibril Cisse or Ibrahima Balde leading the attack up front with support coming from midfield by Ivelin Popov, Arsen Khubulov and Bueno.

Ibrahima Balde is the clubs current top goalscorer this season with 5.

Thursday night’s game from the Liberty Stadium will become the very first meeting between the two clubs, so we are unable to provide you with any head to head statistics for this game.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

Swansea City: L L W L W

Swansea City hold a slight advantage on the recent form stats having won two of their previous five games played. Kuban Krasnodar have struggled in their last five played having managed to secure just one victory.

Swansea City v Kuban Krasnodar Match Betting Odds Market.

Swansea City have a much stronger squad than their opponents and with the players knowing that a victory would pretty much qualify them for the next phase of this competition and having home advantage, this looks a banker home win on thursday night and the online bookmakers seem to agree having the hosts priced up at odds of 8/15 with Betfred (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) to secure all 3pts.

The Draw not a result that looks a likely outcome as Kuban Krasnodar have not even managed to score a single goal yet in their previous two games in the group and with Swansea guaranteed to get at least one I can’t see many people being tempted at odds of 10/3 with Ladbrokes (£30 Free Bets for New Customers).

Kuban Krasnodar would cause an almighty shock if they were to some how manage to win this game on thursday night, but for me it looks as likely as Sunderland winning the English Premiership this season, so their current odds of 15/2 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) also don’t look like attracting much interest from punters.

This looks like business as usual for Michael Laudrup’s side here as their opponents have not scored a single goal so far in their opening two games of the group and with Viktor Goncharenko’s also having secured no points, it does seem like the little unknown side from Russia will be eliminated from the competition when all is said and done at the Liberty Stadium on thursday night.

Surprisingly the online bookmakers have been a bit generous with their odds for a Swansea City victory here as I would of expected their price to be a lot shorter than it currently is due to their opponents being so bad, so I can certainly see plenty of people lumping on the home win here as it does look tremendous value.

The Asian Handicap could also pay dividends and with Swansea City having the all important home advantage where they score goals for fun, they should win this game by at least a couple of goals. Anytime Goalscorers, Over 2.5 Goals and Swansea City to Win Both Halves are also other betting markets to consider.
