Atletico Madrid vs Lokomotiv Moscow
UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 25 November 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid).

Atletico Madrid has been unbeaten in the last two CL clashes in their form this term. However, their play-off spot is not in danger as they are two points ahead of the next in kin. Besides, Los Indios will return home in the champions league schedule after a 1-1 draw with Lokomotiv last time out.

Lokomotiv Moscow is winless and has picked up their 2 points from the two draws in their form. Like the home team, they too have lost only to Bayern in the group. However, visiting on the back of a draw at home against the same opponents will affect the morale of the players.

Atletico Madrid vs Lokomotiv Moscow Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The host has been unbeaten in all six meetings since 2007.
  • Only two of their six fixtures have ended in a draw.
  • Both teams have scored in three of the overall six games.
  • Their previous encounter resulted in a 1-1 draw.

Atletico Madrid vs Lokomotiv Moscow Prediction

The absence of Suarez in the team affected the sharpness of Atletico Madrid’s attacks in the middle. But the 1-0 win against Barcelona in the previous encounter in La Liga will improve the morale of the defense for the home team.

We can expect goals from Simeone and his men, but we cannot count on them to land a high-margin win in the upcoming clash. That’s why the tip for under 3.5 goals will probably be the best bet for the punters considering their current squad strength in the campaign.

The host enjoys the ground advantage in the game and has lost only one of their last ten matches. That loss was against Bayern Munich in the opening CL group stage fixture this season. Hence, the home win in full-time is likely the best chance in the game within ninety minutes.

Since the odds are too low for the home win in full-time, a better choice with the same result will be the tip for Atletico Madrid to win with a -1 handicap in the encounter.
