Sillamäe Kalev vs. FC Krasnodar: all precedents of Estonian clubs with Russia

Angelo PalmeriComment

Notwithstanding Russia and Estonia are neighbouring countries, there are no precedents between the two at club slevel since Estonia regained independence in 1991 detaching itself from former USSR-Russia.

FC Krasnodar will be the first opponent ever from Russian top-flight.

At national team level there are five precedents dating back from 2002 famous 2-1 victory in Tallinn (brace scored by legendary Andres Oper, recently retired) in a friendly game.

After that, Estonia has never managed to beat Russia again losing 3 times and equalizing once (1-1) thanks to a goal by Sergei Terehhov, now Nõmme Kalju’s sport director and back then developing his career in Russia at Shinnik Yaroslavl. It was a World Cup 2016 qualifier.
