We will thus not be surprised to see Diego Simoene possibly mixing up his cards on Thursday as he could use the likes of Fernando Torres and Kevin Gameiro in the final third keeping his main stars fit for weekend’s La Liga trip to Estadio de la Ceramica where Atleti will play Villarreal on Sunday evening.

This could provide an opportunity for Lokomotiv to fix the poor impression and avoid a defeat against Spanish heavyweights and one of the main contenders for the title in this term of Europa League. The Russian Premier League has just recently returned to action after a lengthy winter break and Yury Semin’s squad has played a goalless draw with the reigning champions Spartak Moscow in the city derby last weekend. They now sit five points clear off their bitter rivals with a game in hand.

Lokomotiv Moscow vs Atletico Madrid: Head-to-head

This will only be the third head to head encounter between Lokomotiv and Atletico.

The teams shared spoils in a 3-3 draw in the group phase of the same competition back in the 2007/08 campaign.

Atletico have picked up a convincing 3-0 victory last Thursday at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.

Lokomotiv Moscow vs Atletico Madrid: Prediction

The visitors are 1.95 favourites to clinch the victory in the rematch as well, but we’ll try and look for the value in backing Lokomotiv or draw double chance at the odds of 1.85 given that Simeone will likely rest his main stars here.

Alternatively, you can go for the draw at the half time at 2.05.
