Upcoming Predictions for Football
FC Lokomotiv Moscow
"Lokomotiv" started the season with a duel with "Zenit" for the Russian Super Cup. Marko Nikolic's team could not give a serious rebuff to the favorite - the champion took the trophy, having won 3:0 in Kaliningrad. In the championship, the "Railroad" started more confidently - in the first round with a score of 3:1, "Arsenal" was defeated, but all three goals were scored in the last 10 minutes of the meeting.
In the second round, "Lokomotiv" again won a strong-willed victory. Having conceded an early goal from "CSKA" in the derby, the "Railroad workers" quickly bounced back, and in the second half of the meeting they scored the winning goal. The most difficult match for "Lokomotiv" at the moment was the away match against "Ufa" - the townspeople opened the scoring and ended up in the majority, but they did not keep the advantage - Vitaly Lisakovich's goal helped to get a point.
On the whole, "Lokomotiv" started the season well, but none of the victories won were convincing - both in the match against "Arsenal" and in the match with "CSKA", the "Railroad workers" conceded first. "Zenit" is still confidently justifying the status of favorite in the championship race and today it will obviously only play to win - "Lokomotiv" is not reliable in defense and the Russian champion will surely turn these mistakes into victory.
We believe that the owners have no chance.
Our prediction is "Zenit's" victory with the odds of 1.85 on 1xbet.
