Galatasaray vs Lokomotiv Moscow Prediction Today
After two consecutive seasons of absence, Galatasaray returns to the first European football scene. On the other hand, Lokomotiv Moscow managed to win the title in Russia and also to return to the Champions League group after a 14-year break!
Galatasaray defeated Kasimpasa 4-1 in front of his supporters last Friday and comes to this confrontation with a good morale and an attack line in great shape that will want to continue the performance of the previous match in the inaugural game of the Champions League groups.The Cimbom team regularly scored in front of their supporters, and now occupies the top position of the SuperLiga in Turkey and has 4 wins in the last 5 games. Fatih Terim’s attack line is mainly led by striker Aren Derdiyok.On the other hand, Lokomotiv comes to Istanbul in somewhat unpredictable form, occupying a position in the middle of the first league in Russia after the first 7 rounds played. The Russians lost with their score 2-1 in their last match in Krasnodar, while in the last match played at home they could not get more than equal to the score of 1-1 against those from Dinamo Moscow. This will be the first direct meeting after almost 16 years. The two teams met in the Champions League group stage of the 2002/2003 season, when each of them succeeded in imposing himself when he was in the position of a visiting team.
