When Everton head to Krasnodar in the Europa League on Thursday, it will be very much a trip into the unknown for most.
But, for Aiden McGeady, the opposition and surroundings will be very much familiar.
The Ireland international spent three-and-a-half seasons at Spartak Moscow in the Russian league, coming up against Krasnodar on six occasions.
As such, he is the perfect candidate to provide his teammates and fans with the inside scoop on what to expect this week.
Watch an exclusive evertontv interview above* as McGeady talks about:
- Krasnodar's rise in recent years, culminating in qualifying for European football for the first time in their history
- The friends he will hope to line up against
- The atmosphere Evertonians will experience in the Kuban Stadium
- Russia's October climate
