Lokomotiv Moscow vs Anzhi Makhachkala
Russian Premier League
Date: Sunday, 30th July 2017
Kick off at 15:30 UK/ 16:30 CET
Venue: Stadion Lokomotiv.
Lokomotiv Moscow have made a major upset last weekend when they sunned CSKA Moscow 1-3 at VEB Arena in Moscow derby.
Krasno-zelyonyye will thus have a nice chance to maintain the perfect score in the new season after the third round clash as they host Anzhi on Sunday at Stadion Lokomotiv.
Yury Semin has done a fantastic job in preparing his team for the visit to VEB Arena and the clash with CSKA Moscow last Friday.
Lokomotiv knew how to keep things tight at the back while Jefferson Farfan and Mikhail Lyson represented a major threat on the flanks.
Brazilian striker Ari bagged his first goal of the season and we expect him to continue the good run this Sunday against Anzhi.
The visitors began the competition with a 1-3 loss to CSKS, but they fixed the impression six days later with a narrow 1-0 victory over Amkar Perm’ in front of their fans.
Aleksandr Grigoryan’s men showed decent defensive displays during the pre-season, but they will have a very tough task to keep their net untouched against an in-form Lokomotiv side.
Lokomotiv Moscow vs Anzhi: Head to head
Anzhi have failed to find the back of the net in each of their meetings with Lokomotiv in the previous term of Premier League.
Loko claimed a demolishing 4-0 victory when they last time met Anzhi on the home court.
Lokomotiv Moscow vs Anzhi: Prediction
We don’t expect the hosts to bag four this time around, but a home win to nil is more than a realistic scenario.
Ari to score anytime is also a must-take bet at the sky-high 8/5 odds.
Lokomotiv Moscow vs Anzhi: Bet Tips
The first bet is Lokomotiv Moscow to win to nil at the odds of 2.25.
The alternative pick is Ari to score anytime at 2.60.
