Lokomotiv Moscow vs Bayer Leverkusen Match Preview

Bayer Leverkusen have been denied their third win in a row as Freiburg (1-1) snatched a point at BayArena and they now travel to Moscow for their Champions League clash looking to bounce to the winning ways, desperate for points to jump the Russian rivals and keep hold of their top 2 chances ahead of the home clash against Juventus.

Die Werkself beat Atletico Madrid (2-1) and Wolfsburg (0-2) ahead of the International break and we’ve seen them scoring goals on the regular, which will surely have them in good spirits. Still, they’ve struggled to impress on the road and the win in Wolfsburg was their only first in four trips, which will be more worrying.

Lokomotiv Moscow snatched a 1-2 win in Leverkusen back in September and they’ll now want a similar upset but they’ve struggled for consistency just as much. They beat Tambov (2-3) on Friday to end a six-match winless streak across competitions, though, and Yury Semin will want to build on it.

Loko have seen Spartak Moscow (0-3) and Juventus (1-2) snatch all three points at RZD Arena since late October and only ended the losing streak here with a 1-1 draw against Krasnodar, where an opener from in-form Krychowiak wasn’t enough. They’ll now hope for more but getting it will be no easy task.

Still, we’re backing Lokomotiv to hold off the Bundesliga rivals and we’re sticking with a Double Chance – Home win or Draw at 8/11 with William Hill, which has caught the eye of many in the know already.

We do expect goals and both sides’ recent goalscoring (and defensive) tally suggests the same. We’re thus also going for a Yes on Both teams to score, which comes at 8/11 with William Hill and looks like a solid approach to the fixture by itself.
