The Line: Lokomotiv 7/4 Draw 23/10 Fenerbahce 9/5 See the Latest Odds

TV: Bt Sport; Bein Sport

Fenerbahce lead this leg 2-0 after a first leg in which Souza netted twice to down the visiting Lokomotiv Moscow. Temperatures are expected to be very cold on Thursday reaching -2 at kick off time. Fenerbahce will look to just defend their lead I think but with players like Souza, Fernadao, Nani and Van Persie the team will be very dangerous on the counter attack. Fenerbahce are having a good season in Turkey and they look set to compete for the title right down to the wire as they arecurrently just a point off top.

Lokomotiv Moscow are in the middle of their winter break and this does leave them at a disadvantage against the stronger European sides in this competition. I think this side will give it a go on Thursday but I find it hard to see where the goals are going to come from to hurt Fenerbahce. Maicon and Samedov are going to be the biggest goal threats but I think that they will have their work cut out against a very strong Fenerbahce defence led by Portugese defender Bruno Alves. Lokomotiv though are having a good season and sit third in the Russian league and could be pushing for a Champions League spot next season which would be a huge achievement.

I think this game looks finely balanced, the weather will be the great equaliser here and while Fenerbahce definitely have the more talented individuals I think as a team Lokomotiv work hard for each other and will give this game a good go. For me though on the balance of the talent I think the draw looks a solid play here and at 23/10 there is definitely some value there. Fenerbahce know that a draw is enough to progress so they will more than likely sit back and protect that lead.
