Russian Premier League
Date: Monday, 18th September 2017
Kick-off at 19:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Lokomotiv Stadium, Moscow.
In the penultimate match of Round 10 of Russian Premier League Lokomotiv Moscow welcome Amkar. Both sides are able to find their motivation for this match – the host might occupy the first place if they manage to win, while Amkar are aiming to jump from the last position.
The hosts hosted FC Copenhangen in the first round of UEFA Europa League. The match ended as a goalless draw, so Lokomotiv Moscow might carry some fatigue from the Thursday’s obligations.
Lokomotiv are in the third position with 20 points earned. In the case of a victory, they might overtake the first position which is a huge motivation itself.
On the other hand, the visitors are heavily struggling in Russian top flight. They are in the last place with 5 points earned after 9 matches played. In the last five matches, they were defeated twice, in addition to two draws and a victory.
In 12 out of the last 15 matches in Russian Premier League, Amkar have failed to score. In their 8 out of last 9 games there were 2 or fewer goals seen.

HT/FT marked for braver punters is a gold mine here.
