FC Rostov vs Lokomotiv Moscow Prediction
Unbeaten in the last four fixtures will put FK Rostov in a better position before the match. However, the three winless games within their last five games will put Loko at a backhand.
Both teams will meet after a win in their prior clash. The host won against CSKA Moscow at home with a 3-2 score on the board. Meanwhile, Loko will visit after a 1-0 win at home against Akhmat Grozny.
Since both sides are with the same form in overall league stats. With just one loss at home, Valeri Karpin’s boys have a better composure at home.
Also, they have a better winning rate at home with 7 of their 11 overall league wins coming at home.
In sharp contrast, Loko has been winless in their last two matches in the campaign. They have lost two of their away games so far, and one loss came within the last two trips on the road.
Their winning rate away from home is decent though, with 6 of 11 overall wins coming in away games.
Apart from that, the visitors have won the last three visits to Rostov. Their current form is doubtful of defeating the host at their own turf.
Hence, the double chance favoring the home team at 1.40 will be the best bet in the clash. Their last four meetings have seen at least 2 goals in the scoresheet. So, over 1.5 goals at 1.40 will be a probable bet for the punters.
