Lokomotiv thus sit only 11th with just nine points from eight games so far. Just to compare, Zenit are as many as 12 points away at the very top of the standings, this early in the season. Can Yury Semin’s side get their campaign up and running on Saturday when they are set to host Akhmat Grozny in one of the most interesting games of the Matchday?

Lokomotiv Moscow vs Akhmat Grozny: Head-to-head

Akhmat managed to hold Parovozy to two draws in the season which saw Loko clinch the silverware.

As many as three of last for head to head games between these two likes ended without a winner.

Six of last seven H2H matches saw less than three goals scored.

We have to mention Lokomotiv completely dominated the match-up in games at RZD Arena where they won 9m drew 3 and lost none of 12 matches against the Wolves.

Lokomotiv Moscow vs Akhmat Grozny: Prediction

The visitors made a slower start to the new season, but their form has seen a respectable rise in the last couple of weeks. They head into this off the back of two wins and a draw in last three league matches. It is a thread which saw them climb up to sixth place in the Premier League ladder.

The man responsible for such rise is the new head coach Rashid Rakhimov. Akhmat began to ply much more attractive football under the new boss and it paid off instantly. The Wolves bagged as many as eight goals in last four games across competitions.

The visitors should have space to keep the fine attacking form going past the struggling defense of Lokomotiv’s. Parovozy allowed five goals in a tough loss to Zenit last weekend and we just can’t see them keeping a clean sheet on Saturday.
