Our prediction for this Champions League match:
After holding Atletico Madrid to a goalless draw at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano, Lokomotiv Moscow will be looking to return to record their first win of the process when they host Salzburg at their RZD Arena. The Russians are eyeing their fourth clean sheet in all competitions, and we are positive that they will rely on their rock-solid defence in Tuesday’s showdown. The likes of Barinov, Lysov and Smolov are all out of contention through injury.
The Red Bulls are eyeing their first win of the campaign as well, and they must be high on confidence following an 8-2 triumph over St. Polten in the Austrian Bundesliga. Salzburg aim to put an end to their three-game losing run in Group A, but beating Lokomotiv in Moscow is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards, and we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Bernede, Daka, and Okugawa are sidelined with injury for the visitors.
