Russia – Cup
Date: Wednesday, 15th May 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: Stadion Arsenal (Tula).
The first leg of this tie had very two contrasting halves. While the first 45 minutes passed without much incident, Rostov, then on the road, found the back of the net in the 50th minute. Realizing danger, the hosts tried to hit back. It took them some time, but they did find the equalizer.
Then, as the game entered its final 10 minutes, all hell broke loose. At first, the hosts conceded a penalty, which Rostov promptly converted. Just when they thought they had the game under control, the team scored an own goal, leveling up the score at 2-2.
Now, as these teams face each other once more at Tula, fans are expecting a fierce encounter.

FC Rostov vs Lokomotiv Moscow Prediction
Rostov is massively underperforming right now. They are winless in their last five matches, and in seven of their last eight. At home, they remained winless in six of their last ten attempts, and one of the occasions where they won was friendly.
Moscow, meanwhile, was unbeaten in 17 of their last 18 fixtures and won seven of their last eight away ties. Importantly, 21 of the last 26 h2h wins and 9 of the last 12 at this venue went to Lokomotiv. Keeping in line with the trend, expect Moscow to win.
But Rostov has two away goals to their name and the home advantage. They have the final in their grasp. The team will surely bring their A-game. Moreover, Lokomotiv conceded in nine of their last twelve away ties, and in 12 of their last 15 overall matches. It’s logical to expect goals from both teams.
