Our prediction for this Russia Premier League match:
All eyes will be on RZD Arena when Lokomotiv Moscow and Zenit face each other in the Russian Premier League derby. Lokomotiv Moscow will represent Russia in the Champions League this season, but they have been struggling in the national championship of late. The capital club sit in the seventh place in the standings, with the team collecting only one point in total from the last three league fixtures.
Lokomotiv Moscow face an uphill task in Sunday’s football match, and given their defensive performance in a 3-2 loss to Akhmat Grozny, home win should not be considered. The Zenitchiki, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Dynamo Moscow. Even though Argentina international Sebastian Driussi is likely to miss the match with injury, we are tempted to put our money on the visitors, who should take advantage of Lokomotiv’s current form.
