Lokomotiv Moscow vs Galatasaray Betting Tips
With Lokomotiv, the only possible ambition is to establish third place as goal. To do so, there is a need to win the two remaining games. In addition to Galatasaray, the team faces, in the sixth round, the Schalke, in Germany. That, however, is not enough. It will still be necessary for the Turks, at home, not to win the Port.It does not seem to be a viable combination. Even because the Moscow team has proved inefficient. On Friday, November 23, at home, was defeated, 2 to 1, by the Ural, in commitment for the Russian Championship. Staying in the 25 points (seven wins, four draws and four losses), he was beaten by CSKA on the leaderboard to fourth.
It is thus out of the classification zone for the 2019/2020 edition of the Champions League of Europe. In addition, saw the difference in relation to Zenit Petersburg, of defeated Rostov, by 2 to 0, in the fifteenth round, climb to nine points.
With the Spartak classic scheduled for December 2 and the Kazakh Cup elimination match against Kazan scheduled for December 5, coach Yuri Semin may consider that it is not valid to invest more in the Champions League.

Risk management should also be a concern of coach Faith Terim for the departure of this Wednesday. In thesis, Galatasaray have the possibility to fight for a place in the round of 16 of the Champions League of Europe. This chance, however, is not one of the greatest.
To achieve this goal, the team would need to win the remaining two games, reaching the ten possible points. In addition, he would have to hope for Schalke to be beaten by Porto in Portugal. Although not easy, it is not an impossible combination either.
However, as Porto and Schalke will only face each other later, this tactic implies taking risks by posting the team more offensively against Lokomotiv, which could offer the Russians easier penetration in their defense. Eventually, it would facilitate his mission in a fight for third place. Although Galatasaray can make that determination at home in the final round, a draw in Moscow would ensure the team in the Europa League.
With many injured and suspended athletes, the more conservative option could be the best to avoid an unpleasant surprise, also because on Friday, November 23, the team stumbled on the Turkish Super League. At home, they went 1 to 1 with Konyasport falling to third place in the standings. With 24 points (seven wins, three draws and three losses), he is behind Basaksehir (27) and Kasimpasa (25).
Lokomotiv should not apply much in this match, since their chances of qualifying for the Europa League are remote. Thus, it will be up to Galatasaray to determine the pace of the match. It is possible that the Turkish team will not take many risks at the start, but knowing that they have a chance to define their situation at home, they should eventually venture further. The point is that it has not shown much efficiency to impose itself in the local tournament. Thus, the prognosis in the equality ends up being good option for the duel.
