Lokomotiv Moscow vs CSKA Moscow Betting Tips
The World Cup ended two weeks ago, but the new season on the Russian realm is near the start, and Lokomotiv and CSKA are about to open the curtain in the big derby of the Super Cup of Russia.
The locomotives had a thrilling campaign in the previous season of the first Russian League, winning only two points in the big trophy, just ahead of CSKA opponents. If you ask why the Army team plays the Super Cup, the reason is that the Russian Cup holder, Tosno, has gone bankrupt due to financial problems. The Russian Cup has brought some really strange results last year, the main favorites coming out of the competition from the early stages.
However, let’s return to the first official game of the season in Russia. Obviously, there is no favorite in such matches, especially when two rivals in the same city fight for the trophy. Both teams have secured their participation in the Champions League, finishing the first two positions of the last season’s standings, so they will not take part in the qualifying qualifiers in the European Cups.
CSKA Moscow leads in the history of direct matches with a 5 wins advance.
The two teams have won one win and each draw in the last three matches and have scored 4 goals each time in these matches. Moscow’s Rivales drew 2-2 in the last direct meeting that took place in November last year.
Football Prediction of the Day Lokomotiv Moscow vs CSKA Moscow
The teams did not change much during the transfers this summer. Lokomotiv had an offensive phase in the pre-season amateur, failing to score in friendly matches against Osijek, Wolfsberger AC and Vitesse. However, their final test played Saturday against the Turks of Akhisarspor was won by a score of 2-1.
CSKA also had oscillating evolutions, mainly because coach Viktor Goncharenko changed the first 11 from the game to the game. However, the Belarusian coach has reason to be delighted with the way his team presented their victory with the score of 4-1 two weeks ago against the Turks of Besiktas.
