Lokomotiv – Atletico: forecast for totals
In the 2017/18 season, the teams met in the 1/8 final of the Europa League. Atletico beat 3-0 at home and beat Moscow 5-1 on the road.
In the upcoming match bookmakers prefer guests: Atletico victory – 1.65, Lokomotiv victory – 5.75, draw in regular time – 3.70.
Muscovites are unlikely to win, but defeats, as in the previous meeting with "mattresses", are not to be expected.
We predict that Semina will not be able to lose on their field.
The match will probably start with defense, but it is possible that Muscovites will be able to catch the opponent in a counterattack.
