Team News

FC Krasnodar
Krasnodar has a plethora of absentees for the visit of Spartak Moscow on Saturday, and Musaev has a very limited squad to pick from for the visit of Chelsea.

Remy Cabella and Evgeniy Markov both tested positive for coronavirus before the trip to Rennes, while fellow attackers Wanderson and Viktor Claesson are struggling with muscular problems.

Ruslan Kambolov and Aleksandr Cherkinov are also nursing injuries and may be forced to miss this one out as well, while Igor Smolkinov is a shoo-in to start at right-back in the absences of Sergey Petrov and Dmitri Stotskiy.
FC Krasnodar possible starting lineup:
Safonov; Smolnikov, Kaio, Martynovich, Chernov; Vilhena, Gazinskiy; Suleymanov, Sabua, Ramirez; Berg
FC Krasnodar Champions League form: D
FC Krasnodar form (all competitions): DWLWDL

Chelsea do not have anywhere near as many injury concerns as their midweek hosts, with Lampard's only two confirmed absentees being Kepa Arrizabalaga and Billy Gilmour.

The Blues lined up with three central defenders for their trip to Old Trafford, which ultimately paid dividends defensively as they kept a clean sheet, but Lampard will be going for goals here.

Hakim Ziyech is still waiting to make his full debut for the Blues following three substitute appearances in succession, but the former Ajax man has every chance of featuring from the first whistle here.

Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Mendy; James, Silva, Zouma, Chilwell; Kante, Kovacic; Ziyech, Mount, Pulisic; Abraham
Chelsea Champions League form: D
Chelsea form (all competitions): DLWDDD

Prediction: FC Krasnodar 0-3 Chelsea
