Lokomotiv Moscow is welcoming Atletico Madrid to RZD Arena in round 3 in the UEFA Champions League.
Lokomotiv is struggling at the moment, and they haven’t won any of their last 4 games while losing their last 3 games. During their losing streak, Lokomotiv has conceded 6 goals while scoring 3 goals. The good news for Lokomotiv is that they are consistently scoring goals. In the Russian Premier League, Lokomotiv is in 7th place in the standings. In the Champions League, Lokomotiv has 1 draw and 1 loss, and they are in 3rd place in their group. In their last Champions League game against Bayern Munich at home, Lokomotiv has had 35% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 76% of the correct passes. Despite having a low ball possession, this was a good game for Lokomotiv, and they have multiple chances to take the lead at the 1-1 score. In the 79th minute, Lokomotiv has conceded another goal, and they ended up losing this game 1-2. Eder, Lisakovich, and Miranchuk have each scored 1 goal for Lokomotiv in the Champions League, while Ze Luis, Zhemaletdinov and Zhivoglyadov have all added 1 assist. Rotenberg, Barinov, Lysov, Magkeev, and Corluka are all injured for Lokomotiv. As expected, Lokomotiv is fighting for third place and the Europa League, but I’m afraid all the injuries will impact their game too much.
Atletico Madrid is in great form, and they have won 4 of their last 5 games while winning their last 3 games in a row. During this stretch, Atletico has scored 8 goals, which is more than Atletico has scored in a long time while conceding 3 goals. Atletico was playing against Osasuna on the road in their last LaLiga game, and they have won that match 1-3. With 14 points, Atletico is in 3rd place in the LaLiga standings. In their latest LaLiga match against Red Bull Salzburg at home, Atletico has had 49% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 9 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and 77% of the correct passes. Atletico Madrid was winning 1-0 in the 29th minute, then losing 1-2 in the 47th minute, just so they could tie the score in the 2nd minute of the game. In the 85th minute of the game, Atletico has scored a winning goal, and the final score of this match was 3-2 in favor of Atletico Madrid. Felix has been playing well for Atletico this season, and he has scored 2 goals in the Champions League, while Llorente added 1 goal. Correa and Lemar each have 1 assist. Vrsaljko, Costa, and Carrasco are all injured for Atletico Madrid. Atletico is becoming more and more effective in the attacking end, but their defense is still a bit shaky this season, but I see Atletico fighting for the title this season in LaLiga.
Atletico Madrid has won 3 of the 4 games they played against Lokomotiv, and I see it happening here as well. Lokomotiv is nota bad team, but they are in bad form, and they have injury problems. I’m sticking with Atletico on the road.
