Lokomotiv Moscow vs Sheriff: Preview and Predictions

Lokomotiv Moscow vs Sheriff
UEFA Europa League
Date: 2nd November 2017
Kick off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: RZD Arena (Moscow).

Lokomotiv Moscow have the pole position in the Group F, but a potential slip up to Moldovan Sheriff at home would significantly complicate the situation and open up things completely ahead of the final two fixtures.

Lokomotiv Moscow

The hosts will come into the game in sky-high spirits following a super impressive display from Sunday’s drubbing of Zenit in the domestic campaign.

The 0-3 victory at Stadion Krestovskyi moved Semin’s side three points clear at the top of the Premier League standings.

Jefferson Farfan was especially inspired as he led the Moscow team to a massive win with a second-half brace.

Sheriff

The Moldovan champions have much weaker opposition in their domestic league where they are five points clear at the top in spite of a 1-1 slip up against Sfintul Gheorghe on Saturday at home.

The team led by the Italian manager Roberto Bordin has been very tough to break down so far in Europa League, but the attacking line failed to deliver on the other end which is why their goal difference after three rounds is 1-1.

Lokomotiv Moscow vs Sheriff: Head to head
