CSKA Moscow vs Lokomotiv Moscow: Predictions and Betting Tips

18:00, Jul 31 2021
CSKA Moscow vs Lokomotiv Moscow predictions for this Russian Premier League battle on Saturday at Arena CSKA. CSKA Moscow and Lokomotiv Moscow meet this week in one of the biggest derbies in Russian football, as both could potentially win the league this season, but who will take the three points? Read on for our free predictions and betting tips.

CSKA Moscow

CSKA opened the new season with a narrow win over Ufa, and in this second league match they face a much tougher opponent, although they will once again be playing at home.

CSKA are Russia’s third most successful team, so their sixth-place finish last season which left them out of any European competition is considered a massive failure.

CSKA are on a run of four consecutive defeats against Lokomotiv Moscow.

Lokomotiv Moscow

Lokomotiv opened the season with a 3-1 win over Arsenal Tula.

Lomomotiv finished third last season, so this season they are considered in contention of winning the leaague, a feat they last managed in the 2017-2018 season.

Lokomotiv seem to have the measure of CSKA, having beaten them six times, drawn four times and lost just once in the last ten meetings between the two sides.

Key Stats: 

  • Four consecutive wins for CSKA Moscow
  • CSKA have only conceded two goals in their last five games
  • Three wins and two defeats for Lokomotiv in their last five games
  • Lokomotiv’s last three matches have ended with over 2.5 total match goals

CSKA Moscow vs Lokomotiv Moscow Predictions

We think it will be a pretty even match. CSKA won their first home match, but it was a struggle, and against a team considered much weaker. Against Lokomotiv, they will need to play more aggressively and  be efficient at goal, but the advantage of playing at home, in front of some of the loudest fans in Europe, should carry CSKA to victory in this match.
