Bayern Munich is hosting Lokomotiv Moscow at Allianz Arena in round 6 in the UEFA Champions League.
Bayern has been struggling defensively as of late, and they have conceded at least 1 goal in their last 6 games, 13 goals in total. Bayern is now on a 2-game draw streak, but they are still at the top of Bundesliga with 23 points, 1 point above Leverkusen. Bayern is the best offensive team in Bundesliga by far with 34 scored goals, but they have already conceded 16 goals so far this season. Bayern is also at the top of their group in the Champions League with 13 points, and they will be advancing to the next stage from the top spot. In their latest game in the Champions League, Bayern was playing against Atletico Madrid, and they have had 55% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and a solid 86% of the correct passes. After losing 1-0 since the 26th minute, Bayern tied the score in the 86th minute from a penalty spot. Lewandowski and Coman have each scored 3 goals for Bayern in the Champions League, while Sane and Goretzka added 2 goals each. Kimmich has added 3 assists. Kimmich, Tolisso, and Martinez are injured. This defensive fall was expected for Bayern, but offensively, they are still a force to be reckoned with, and one of the best teams in the world.
Lokomotiv Moscow is in the last place of this group with 3 points, but they can’t reach second place anymore, and they will need to fight for the Europa League spot, for which they need a win, and Salzburg must lose or tie their game against Atletico Madrid. Lokomotiv is in 6th place in the Russian Premier League, and they have won their last game 3-1 against Rubin Kazan. Miranchuk has scored 3 goals for Lokomotiv in the Champions League, while Eder and Lisakovich added 1 goal each. Barinov, Lysov, Smolov, Kulikov, and Luis are all injured for Lokomotiv Moscow. In their last Champions League game, Lokomotiv was hosting Red Bull Salzburg, and they have had a decent game with 50% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 73% of the correct passes. Lokomotiv was losing 0-2 at halftime, but they were able to score a goal in the 79th minute. In the 81st minute, Lokomotiv has conceded another goal, and they ended up losing this game 1-3. Lokomotiv has shown some goo initiative, and they have had a few good games, but it’s clear they are the weakest team in this group, and now they can focus solely on the Russian Premier League.
Bayern has beaten Lokomotiv on the road this season, and they are the better team here by far. Bayern will look to remain undefeated in the Champions League, and I think they will. I’m taking Bayern and goals at home.
