Lokomotiv Moscow vs FC Copenhagen Prediction & Betting tips
With two more game days ahead, it promises to be very exciting in group F. All teams still have a chance to overwinter. Can Lokomotiv Moscow use the home advantage to make a profit? Or are the tough Danes going to be bothered?
Lokomotiv Moscow :
The Russians from the capital are currently in the lead in the national competition. With three and seven points ahead of Zenit St. Petersburg and rival CSKA Moscow respectively, they seem to be on their way to their third national title in history. It is more difficult in Europe. On the last day of play, it lost surprisingly in house. For example, after only four match days, they have earned only five points and can no longer afford a misstep. There is therefore pressure on the boiler with the visit of the Danish national champion in prospect.
It had a good dress rehearsal last weekend by winning at Anzi Makhackala. In a match with very few goal attempts, Moscow had to leave the ball possession to the opponent. It took the lead a few minutes before the break, no better time to take the lead. It would also be the only shot between the posts. Afterwards the experienced team played the game without allowing real goal attempts.
The brothers Miranchuk walk between the experienced men. The twin brothers are barely twenty years old but together they are the strong holders in the midfield. Especially Aleksey Miranchuk is particularly effective with seven goals in seventeen matches. Not bad statistics for a midfielder. Together with him there is also another effective midfielder. The Portuguese Manuel Fernandes also put five in the basket. The danger comes from the second line.
FC Copenhagen :
The Danish top team is currently experiencing a less season. In the home league it is only in a disappointing sixth place with no less than fourteen points behind leader Brondby. It already lost six times in sixteen games and only reached four in fifteen. The loss lots mainly take place on relocation. In Europe it is currently in the lead with six points after three draws and one win. It does have its destiny in its own hands during a winter, if it wins the last day of play, it may still lose against Moscow.
Last weekend it went against a middle-engine without a chance. There is an excuse with missing five basic players. But it gave away three goal attempts and three times it was hit. It did not play to their advantage that they were behind in just two minutes. But that is how their weakness is immediately clear. It is difficult to make the game yourself.
Offensively they count on the Cypriot newcomer Pieros Soteriou. At fourteen games he already scored seven goals. Together with his Serbian striker Andrija Pavlovic, who also scored five times, he has to make sure the balls fly back in. Behind the pointed duo there is a nice football player with the Greek Zeca who can and must take care of the openings. Once it gets back in shape it can still be a nice season.
