Lokomotiv Moscow vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction & Tips
Two teams are fighting for the same goal, which is the qualification in the Europa League. Both have 3 points and in the next race they will face Atletico Madrid (Lokomotiv) and Juve (Bayer). If two defeats arrive, today’s game is absolutely decisive. Thanks to the victory at home of the Germans in fact the Muscovites have two out of three results available to maintain the position. With a win they would qualify while Bayer would enter the Europa League round of 32 if he won with at least 2 goals or a total number of at least 3 goals. The Railwaymen are having a good season. In Prem’er liga they are second behind Zenit and after the victory on Tambov they gained even more confidence. Even in the Champions League the team did not look disfigured fighting in both challenges with Juventus and taking on Leverkusen. The Rossoneri, on the other hand, are playing a fluctuating season but the success on Atletico in the last race of the Champions League raises the possibility of qualifying a lot. Almost impossible for one of the two to qualify in any case for the knockout stages of the Champions since two victories would be needed in the last two games and other favorable results.
If the match ends with a draw, Lokomotiv would still retain the advantage in the standings before the last match.
With a victory of the Lokomotiv it would be at least in the Europa League; should Bayer win by 2-0 or by scoring at least 3 goals the qualification for the second cup would be his.
The first leg ended 2-1 for the Muscovites.
Bayer in the Bundesliga is struggling enough while Lokomotiv is second in the Russian championship.
The technical value of Bayer is superior but at Luzhniki the values could be reversed with a very aggressive Lokomotiv. We expect a draw between two teams that should be equivalent in this environment.
