Preview: Valencia vs. Kuban Krasnodar

Sports Mole previews Thursday's Europa League tie as Valencia host Kuban Krasnodar in Group A.

Kuban Krasnodar travel to Valencia in the Europa League on Thursday with a slim chance of making it through to the last 32 of the competition.

The Russian side are three points behind second-placed Swansea City and will seal their progress if they win and the Welsh side suffer a surprise defeat to St Gallen with a four-goal swing.

Valencia welcome Kuban to Spain knowing that they will finish at the top of Group A thanks to four victories and one loss in their previous five games.

Miroslav Dukic's side beat Kuban 2-0 in the reverse fixture two months ago.

The hosts are still without injured goalkeeper Vicente Guaita, while the visitors have no new injury problems.
