In this match will meet two participants of the finals of the Russian Cup last season. Lokomotiv was stronger then, taking the trophy in his hands. The only goal in that match scored Barinov.
But all the games with “Ural mountains” “the locomotive” are recently very not easy. So, last season in the confrontation with the team from Yekaterinburg, wards Semin managed to win only 1 point.
- The coefficients and forecast
Lokomotiv is traditionally when Semin shows a very strong result at the start of the championship, gradually increasing speed towards the autumn, when the start of the competition. Last season “the locomotive” and did register their first win in the championship only in the 4th round.
This season Lokomotiv won 2 victories in 4 games, but not win over the “Tambov” or on the “Wings of the Soviets” was not sure. In the match against Samara side in the last round the outcome of the match decided the exact impact of Krychowiak in the 94th minute of the match. Also the railwaymen failed to beat Rubin and played him to a draw and lost in the capital Derby CSKA.
Proud of such results is clearly not worth it, especially that soon “the locomotive” starts in the group stage of the Champions League. Compared to last season “alive” Smolov finally started to work out the credibility of the leadership of “Locomotive”. He scored in the super Cup against Zenit and scored 1 goal in the championship.
But the best scorer of Lokomotiv last season Anton Miranchuk has not yet managed to “soak” your score goals.
The problem with the attack may become very relevant for Lokomotiv, as the company Farfan in the infirmary was still and Eder diagnosed with a fracture of the brush.
“Ural” completed the last season on 10th place and reached the Cup final, losing there just “the locomotive”. This season they Parfenov began powerfully beating “Ahmad” and “Ural”, scoring each of these teams by 3 goals. According to the results of the 2nd round “Ural” even topped the standings of the championship.
It is noteworthy that at this point in the championship of Russia it was 3 in the Premier League: “wings of the Soviets”, “Ural” and “Zenith” and each of them lost points in the first round on top of the table. “Wings” lost to “Arsenal”, “Ural” lost to “Dynamo” and “Zenith” played draw with “Krasnodar”.
In the last round “Ural” took “Rostov”. Both teams combines quality attack and serious problems in defense. The match met all expectations and ended in a draw 2:2.
This account is not good for both teams, but it was fully logical result of that match.
In the match with Lokomotiv will not play midfielder Othman El Kabir, who was injured. By the way, El-Kabir last season brought a victory “Ural” in a match with “the Locomotive” in Moscow, clearly having realized a penalty.
This is a significant loss for “Ural” in the middle line, as Othman is often connected to attack and has scored 1 goal this season. It will be replaced, most likely, bavin, who scored this season already 2 goals, coming on as a substitute in the second half.
The coefficients and forecast
Suggest to bet on “both teams to score – Yes”. This rate was 7 times in the last 8 meetings between these teams in the framework of RPL. In her favor says now and great game “Ural” in the attack, which has a second performance in the championship after “Rostov”.
Lokomotiv hadn’t scored this season, only CSKA Moscow, but conceded in every match, including the match for the Supercup with “Zenith”. So that the probability of exchange of goals in this game is quite high.
