ℹ️ Team News: Lokomotiv Moscow
Lucas Fasson (Fitness), Artem Dzyuba (Muscle Injury) and Stanislav Magkeev (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are unavailable for Lokomotiv Moscow gaffer Mikhail Galaktionov.
We are thinking that Loko may well employ a 4-2-3-1 formation for this one and select Ilya Lantratov, Maksim Nenakhov, Ivan Kuzmichev, Egor Pogostnov, Nayair Tiknizyan, Artem Karpukas, Dmitri Barinov, François Kamano, Maksim Glushenkov, Anton Miranchuk and Wilson Isidor.
📰 Team News: Fakel Voronezh
Owing to an otherwise healthy group of players, there is just the sole fitness problem for the Fakel Voronezh manager Dimitri Pyatbratov to be concerned about. Khyzyr Appaev (Muscle Injury) won’t be in action. The suspended players who are serving a ban for this game are Vyacheslav Yakimov and Evgeniy Markov.
We believe Fakelony will likely elect for a 3-5-2 formation, starting the game with Ilya Svinov, Evgeni Morozov, Igor Kalinin, Sergey Bozhin, Mohamed Brahimi, Irakli Kvekveskiri, Roman Akbashev, Andrey Mendel, Ilnur Alshin, Georgi Gongadze and Maksim Maksimov.
Our thinking is that Lokomotiv Moscow will most probably dominate possession and create several successful chances.
Conversely, Fakel Voronezh might well find it a difficult task getting on the scoresheet - but, we do see them getting the chances to score, too.
We’re therefore expecting to see a pretty comfortable 3-1 winning margin for Lokomotiv Moscow when all’s said and done.
