ℹ️ Team News: Lokomotiv Moscow
Lokomotiv Moscow boss Mikhail Galaktionov has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Lucas Fasson (Fitness), Artem Dzyuba (Muscle Injury) and Stanislav Magkeev (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are those who can’t be considered. The players who will not be able to play in this game through being suspended are Dmitriy Barinov and Egor Pogostnov.

We’re therefore expecting a very competitive encounter with a 1-0 winning score for Dynamo Moscow at the end of this game.
