Lokomotiv Moscow vs Orenburg Prediction & Match Preview

Lokomotiv Moscow vs Orenburg
Russia – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 21 June 2020
Kick-Off at 15:30 UK/ 16:30 CET
Venue: RZD Arena (Moscow)

Lokomotiv has to keep winning for replacing Zenit at the top. Also, the results of the latter will also play an important role in deciding the champions this season. The hosts also need to worry about Krasnodar who is breathing down their necks.  This upcoming tie will be another chance for them to continue the winning run that they have now.

Orenburg has the weakest defense in the league, conceding an average of 1.6 goals per game. With a two-match losing streak going on they have very little chance against any top side in Russia.

Lokomotiv Moscow vs Orenburg: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Currently, they have a two-game winning streak going on.
  • Both sides found the back of the net in three of those five games.
  • Three games during that spell also had more than 2.5 goals in total.
  • The host has won both their head to head matches against Orenburg here.
  • Both those games had more than 2.5 goals at ninety minutes.

Lokomotiv Moscow vs Orenburg: Prediction

Lokomotiv is on a whole another level compared to Orenburg. The hosts are working hard to keep track of the toppers Zenit for the title. Winning is the only option they have to close in on the latter and any other result will not help them to do that. Currently, a two-match winning streak is going on for the team from Moscow. On the other hand, Orenburg has lost both their recent league matches. So I am backing a comfortable win for the home side.

The hosts have one of the best defensive units in this season. They have conceded 25 goals in 22 matches which is much better compared to most of their compatriots. But in four of their 5 latest home games, they could not keep a clean sheet. The visitors have scored in recent away games even though the result was not in their favor. So I am backing both teams to score this Sunday.
