Lokomotiv Moscow is hosting Bayern Munich at RZD Arena in round 2 in the UEFA Champions League.
Lokomotiv has been solid in the Russian Premier League as of late, and they had the opportunity to take over the top after Zenit lost their game, but so did Lokomotiv. In their first game in the Champions League, Lokomotiv has played against Red Bull Salzburg on the road, and they have had 46% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 70% of the correct passes. Lokomotiv was leading 0-1 in the 19th minute, but Red Bull turned the game around until the 50th minute. Lokomotiv was able to tie the score in the 75th minute, and the final result was 2-2. Eder and Lisakovich have each scored 1 goal for Lokomotiv in the Champions League so far, while Zhemaletdinov and Zhivoglyadov each added 1 assist. Rotenberg, Barinov, Lysov, and Ignatjev are all injured, and they will miss this game for Lokomotiv Moscow. Lokomotiv is a solid team, and they are doing well in the Russian Premier League, but more importantly, they haven’t started the Champions League with a loss, but I don’t think Lokomotiv will end up in one of the first two spots in their group, and the Europa League is their reality.
Bayern is the best team in the world at the moment, there is no doubt about it. Bayern is on a 6-game winning streak during which they scored 23 goals while conceding 6 goals. In Bundesliga, Bayern is in 2nd place with 12 points, while they have demolished Atletico Madrid in the Champions League last week, and with that win, Bayern is at the top of their group. In that match against Atletico Madrid, Bayern has had 58% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 5 big chances created, and a solid 86% of the correct passes. Bayern was the better team here, and with 2 scored goals in each half, Bayern has won this match 4-0. Coman has scored 2 goals for Bayern in the Champions League, while Goretzka and Tolisso added 1 goal each. Muller, Coman, and Kimmich have added 1 assist each. Sieb and Davies are both injured, and they will not be in the lineup for this match. Bayern is the biggest favorite to win this competition once again, and Lewandowski is once again scoring a ton of goals, and more importantly, he is not alone. Bayern has a lot of depth, good defense, and they are playing great soccer. They will be extremely hard to stop this season.
Lokomotiv and Bayern have never met in the past. Lokomotiv is in solid form, but Bayern is in fantastic form, and they are a huge favorite in this game. It’s hard to find a good market for this match, but if Bayern scored 4 goals to Atletico Madrid who are arguably the best defensive team in Europe, imagine what they will do to Lokomotiv.
