The Bulls are getting used to the new realities
The outflow of internationals has seriously affected Krasnodar, now the squad has changed significantly, as well as the grand plans for the future. There were even rumours about problems with financing, but it seems to be sorted out. Of course, the team has little motivation, because all Russian clubs will be without European competitions next season. In the last matchday the team managed to outplay the struggling Rostov side 2-1. “The Bulls are fifth in RPL, five points behind the top four, with one game in hand.
Zheleznodorozhniki are no longer as dangerous
Lokomotiv Moscow are not impressively high, as they are only sixth in the league, just one point behind their upcoming opponents. In the last round, the “railroaders” could not resist on the road against the leading Zenit, a defeat of 1:3, although in that game Loko opened the scoring already in the 4th minute. The team is not in the best shape at the moment, as they have gained just one victory in four meetings. The players are thinking about holidays, as there’s nothing left to be desired this season.
These teams are facing each other in a hard-fought encounter, with the first-round battle ending in a home win for Lokomotiv, with Fedor Smolov scoring a double for the winners.
Let us pay attention to the fact that the direct rivals in the standings are meeting. The winner of the pairings will reduce the gap from the first quartet and keep their chances for the top 4, although it does not make sense right now. We suggest betting on a total of more than 2.5 goals here.
