Rostov vs Lokomotiv Moscow
Russia – Premier League
Date: Monday, 14 September 2020
Kick-off at 18:30 UK/ 19:30 CET
Venue: Rostov Arena (Rostov).
Rostov Arena will pit together two of the most successful clubs in the Russian Premier League in recent years to lock horns with each other for the three points.
Rostov is looking for climbing up the table a bit further by improving their form. Meanwhile, Lokomotiv Moscow will aim to get back the title which they missed as the runners-up last season.
Valeri Karpin and his men faced Krasnodar in the previous league clash last month. The teams shared the spoils in that clash which ended in a 1-1 scoreline.
The Loko will visit after a goalless draw at home against Zenit, which was their fourth consecutive winless clash comprising two draws and two losses in it.
Rostov vs Lokomotiv Moscow Head-to-head (h2h)
- Only one of their last five matches has ended in a draw.
- The visitor has recorded four of the last five overall wins.
- Their previous encounter gave a 1-3 away win for Loko.
- Four of the recent five clashes saw both teams score.
Rostov vs Lokomotiv Moscow Prediction
With a three-game unbeaten run in the league schedule, the Selmashi will probably try to catch the visitors off guard at some point in the game.
Even so, the visitor has recorded more wins in their recent h2h meetings with the host. Based on that, the host will not have much use of the ground advantage in the middle.
Lokomotiv Moscow had some troubles to the end of the last season, and the winless streak in their last four fixtures in the schedule was an obvious example of it. So, a double chance favoring the Loko will probably suit the punters to yield decent returns.
Since we can expect a couple of goals in the clash with both teams likely to go neck to neck in ninety minutes, the tip for over 1.5 goals will probably be the best bet for the punters.
Rostov vs Lokomotiv Moscow Betting tips
