Sheriff vs Lokomotiv Moscow: Preview and Predictions

Sheriff vs Lokomotiv Moscow
UEFA Europa League
Date: 19th October 2017
Kick off at 20:05 UK/ 21:05 CET
Venue: Bolshaya Sportivnaya Arena (Tiraspol).

Lokomotiv Moscow is the only team to have scored goals in Group F so far as they demolished Czech Zlin 3-0 in front of their fans two weeks ago.

Can the Russians make it two wins on the bounce and get one step closer to securing the top spot in the group this Thursday when they travel to Bolshaya Sportivnaya Arena to tackle Moldovan Sheriff?

Sheriff

The Italian manager Roberto Bordin is doing a solid job with Sheriff who sit four points clear at the top of Divizia Nationala standings after 13 rounds of the competition.

The Moldovan outfit proved their strength in the continental competition where they played back-to-back goalless draws with Zlin and Copenhagen.

Lokomotiv Moscow

Yury Semin can be thrilled with his team’s displays in Europa League where they avoided a defeat at Telia Parken and demolished Zlin in opening two rounds.

However, Krasno-Zelyonyye missed out on a great chance to overtake Zenit at the top of the Premier League standings with a disappointing 1-0 defeat at Ufa on Sunday.

Sheriff vs Lokomotiv Moscow: Head to head

This will be the first ever head to head encounter between the two teams.

Sheriff vs Lokomotiv Moscow: Prediction

We can expect yet another super tough match in the Group F. Both teams will likely sit at the back and wait for their chances from counter attacks.

We’ll give a slight advantage to the visiting side who will be under less pressure here and backing Loko to win to nil might be a worthy longshot at 11/5 odds.

Sheriff vs Lokomotiv Moscow: Bets

The main betting prediction is Under 2.5 goals FT at 1.50.

The alternative bet would be Lokomotiv Moscow to win to nil at the odds of 3.20.
