Lokomotiv won their first league title in 14 years last season and they did it by getting better of arch rivals CSKA by 2 points. This will also see them returning to the Champions League group stage for the first time in as many years.

However, the Red-Greens are coming on the back of Super Cup defeat to cross city rivals CSKA this Friday. The match was goal-less and it was an extra time goal that denied them a winning start in the new season.

On the other hand, Ufa had an equally good 2017/18 season considering they were only in their third season in the Russian top tier. They have qualified for the Europa League after finishing 6th in the league and they made their debut at the competition on the midweek with a home game against Slovenian side Domzale. With the scored tied goal-less they have a big night this Thursday in Slovenia.

Ufa vs Lokomotiv Moscow Head-to-head

  • Ufa were unbeaten in the two league games against Lokomotiv last season with a 1-0 win at home and goal-less draw in Moscow.
  • In combined cup and league games, Lokomotiv won 5 of the 10 h2h games against Ufa, drew 2 and lost 3.
  • Nine of their 10 overall h2h meetings saw under 2.5 goals.
  • Both teams haven’t scored in any of their duels so far.

Ufa vs Lokomotiv Moscow Prediction

It is apparent that Ufa needs to keep players fit and fine for the upcoming Europa League qualifier on Thursday and they are most likely to rest some of their key players on Monday.

This is advantage Lokomotiv, who will be looking to make a winning start to the new season after losing the Super Cup to CSKA three days ago.

Once again, goals will be at a premium, not only because of 90% of their previous h2h matches saw the same, but Sergei Tomarov’s Ufa is the sort of team that park the bus against elite teams in the league.

FT – Lokomotiv to win at 2.43
