Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Atletico Madrid quickly bounced back from a 4-0 loss to Bayern Munich, with the team beating Salzburg 3-2 at their Estadio Wanda Metropolitano. Los Rojiblancos aim to move one step closer to booking their place in the Champions League last 16, and they are likely to go for a win in Tuesday’s clash. Joao Felix scored a brace in the triumph over the Red Bulls, and, no doubt, he is capable of making life difficult for the Lokomotiv Moscow defenders as well.
Even though the likes of Carrasco, Costa, and Vrsaljko are sidelined with injury, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visitors. The Russian outfit, on the other hand, produced a fine display in a 2-1 loss to Bayern Munchen, but they eventually failed to grab something from the match. Atletico Madrid emerged triumphant in each of their previous four meetings with Lokomotiv Moscow, which is yet another reason why away win should be considered.
