Lokomotiv Moscow vs Dynamo Moscow Prediction
Lokomotiv Moscow have not been their usual self lately, and have just one win to boast of from their last seven games in all competitions. Their most recent matchup at home saw them concede two unanswered goals against German outfit Bayer Leverkusen, prior to which they managed to edge past the struggling FC Tambov on the road with a 3-2 scorecard.
At the moment, the hosts are sitting second in the Premier League table with a solid five-point deficit between them and table toppers Zenit.
Meanwhile, Dinamo Moscow completed back to backs wins last week for the first time this season, after they took down FK Rostov at home. Despite conceding a goal just thirteen minutes into that latter matchup, the home side mustered a stellar comeback to post a 2-1 victory at the end of the ninety minutes.
Be that as it may, the visitors are in line for an even tougher clash this weekend. The away side have just three wins on the road so far. It is also worth mentioning that two of those three victories came against sides that are currently dwelling in the bottom half of the ladder.
Furthermore, Dinamo Moscow have not secured the bragging rights in any of their past five trips here. Taking into account that the hosts have also stumbled just twice on home soil, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Lokomotiv Moscow in this one.
Additionally, the visiting contingent have looked organized at the back. They have been keeping a clean sheet in their past two outings on the trot. Moreover, half of the last four Premier League games at this venue have been low scoring affairs.
Considering that two out of their previous three h2h clashes at RZD Arena have also featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts, expect Lokomotiv Moscow to wrap things with a goal or two at the most.
