FK Akhmat vs Lokomotiv Moscow Prediction

Igor Shalimov’s men are yet to get into their groove and have so far registered a win just thrice. Their previous clash on the road saw them narrowly come out on top against Ufa, prior to which Sochi got the better of them with a 2-0 scorecard.

Lokomotiv Moscow, on the other hand, are enjoying the view at the helm. The visitors are boasting an impressive four-match winning streak in the league at the moment, the last of which was a 2-1 win against Arsenal Tula at home.

Furthermore, the guests have not admitted defeat in any of their previous three trips to this venue and even secured the bragging rights in their last meeting here. Given that FK Akhmat are also without a win in their past three matchups on home soil, Lokomotiv Moscow are sizing up to be the favorites to come out on top in this one.

Be that as it may, half of their last six head to head meetings here have finished in a tie. Taking into account that FK Akhmat have also been forcing their foes to share the spoils with them in their last two clashes here, a draw no bet is by far the safest punt.

Furthermore, the visitors have been consistent in getting their names on the scoresheet in the opening forty-five minutes in their last five Premier League outings. Considering that they found the back of the net before the break, in their previous visit to the Akhmat Arena as well, count on the deadlock to be broken in the first half by all means.
