A fixture that not many would have thought would have much significance at the start of the group stage all of a sudden has massive implications for Atletico Madrid as they now find themselves in a position where they could miss out on the round of 16.
They do not have much to worry about at the moment as they are -550 favorites over Wednesday’s opponents, but we have seen crazier things happen in this competition and being knocked out at the group stage would represent a monumental failure by the Madrid based club.
Lokomotiv are coming off of an embarrassing game against Arsenal Tula as they were defeated by a score of 4-0. Based off of that performance it can be concluded that they have no shot on the road against Atletico and the bookies certainly believe that to be the case as their current price is around +1800.
The Champions League does have it’s own rules, and this Moscow side has been significantly better in the Champions League then they have been in the Russian domestic competition. They do have some excuses for their poor performances in Russia, though, as they simply do not have the depth in their squad to compete at a high level in multiple competitions and if they were not in the Champions League this year there is a high likelihood they would be much higher in the table.
Lokomotiv Moscow loves to mix up their formations, but they should go with a 3-4-2-1 as that seems to be the best formation for this team. Lokomotiv only has one real standout performer and that is Grzegorz Krychowiak who already has 9 goals between the Russian league and Champions League.
Atletico Madrid has been seriously bad this year, as they have failed to secure their spot in the round of 16 and currently sit in 7th place in La Liga. It is no secret this team likes to play a defensive style, but even with that being the case they should be scoring more goals.
This team has given up the fewest goals in La Liga, but they are also only averaging one goal per game which is obviously not good enough to chase down the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona at the top of the table.
Constant injuries and under performances of their massive signing Joao Felix have not helped their efforts at the offensive end of things, but with other strikers on the team like Alvaro Morata they really should be scoring at a much higher clip.
That is the big reason it is hard to back the -550, or take a handicap price on this team as you just do not trust them to put up a significant amount of goals against anyone. A draw won’t be enough here for Atletico, so this might be the game we see them breakout from an offensive standpoint.
Free Lokomotiv Moscow vs Atletico Madrid Champions League Prediction:
Lokomotiv Moscow has been a much better team in the Champions League and I can see them going toe to toe with a struggling Atletico side. I do not think they will win, but I think they keep it close enough that a draw is a real possibility.
The price is also very attractive at +600 and believe there is real value in backing this game to end in a deadlock.
