Sunday Soccer in the Russian Premier League: Miller picks FK Sochi vs FC Krasnodar

With third and fourth place battling in Russian Premier League, Krasnodar can be the beneficiary.

After a big 7-1 win for Zenit on Saturday, there are two huge matches Sunday in the Russian Premier League with UEFA Champions League ramifications.

FC Rostov and Lokomotiv Moscow are even on points (38), and will play for a chance to solidify third place, which is a Champions League qualification spot. But sitting ahead of both is FC Krasnodar (41 points), which has an away match against second to last PFC Sochi early Sunday.

Krasnodar pummeled Sochi 3-0 back in July, and will want to do the same today. A win could move Krasnodar five or six points clear of the Europa League spots.
