Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Lokomotiv vs PFC Sochi


For the starting 7 rounds in the RPL, Lokomotiv won 4 victories and brought three matches to a draw. Then there was a recession: two zero draws with teams from the bottom of the standings and a home defeat against Rostov (1-2), which is in the relegation zone. It was after such results that the head coach was changed. However, with Markus Gizdol, the "railroad workers" have not yet begun to play better: in the last round, they only miraculously escaped defeat in an away meeting with Rubin (2-2), leveling the score in stoppage time. In the standings, Lokomotiv is in 5th place, 5 points behind the leader.

The Red-Greens are not impressive in the Europa League either: in three games only one point, only one goal scored and, as a result, the last place in the group.

PFC Sochi

At the beginning of the season in the RPL, PFC Sochi won three out of 4 matches, and then began to alternate defeats with victories, and only in the last two rounds won two victories in a row: in St. Petersburg over Zenit (2-1) and in Sochi over Rostov (3-2), having scored all three goals in the first half. In the standings, Fedotov's team is in third place, two points behind the leader.

In July and August, PFC Sochi played its 4th matches in the Conference League qualification, scored 10 goals and never lost, but left the tournament, losing to Partizan in a series of 11-meter strikes (1-1 and 2-2).

Game Totals Prediction

Last season, the RPL teams exchanged home victories, and in the Russian Cup (1/4 finals) Lokomotiv turned out to be stronger: 3-1.

In part, we can agree with the bookmakers, who are absolutely equal in assessing the teams' chances of winning in the upcoming face-to-face meeting. Yes, Lokomotiv plays at home, where he regularly scores, but now his game is far from ideal. As for Fedotov's charges, they have problems in defense, which they compensate for with a bright play in attack. I think the fight will turn out to be interesting and effective. The best bets on the match: "Total Over (2.0)" at 1.53 or "Both will score" at 1.82. Looks good and "Goals in both halves - yes" for 1.78.
