Swansea were again pegged back by a late Kuban Krasnodar goal as Ibrahima Balde’s stoppage-time equaliser denied them a win in Russia.
However, Kuban threw on Ibrahima Balde – as they did two weeks ago when he won the penalty to deny Swansea at the Liberty Stadium – and he sealed a draw in dramatic fashion.
Swansea were hugely dominant in possession in this fixture and Michael Laudrup will be left wondering how his side were unable to claim all three points. With a 62% share of the ball, it’s clear to see just how much of a monopoly the Welsh side had over Kuban.
The Swans enjoyed a greater number of chances on goal and their passing and tackling statistics further emphasise their superiority.
