Lokomotiv Moscow hosts Atletico Madrid at the RZD Arena in Moscow in a match from
Group A of the Champions League. Let’s take a look in these football best betting tips for
Lokomotiv Moscow are third in Group A with just one point won from the first two rounds.
The Russian side won its only point during their draw with Salzburg two weeks ago. Last
week they faced Bayern Munich in the Russian capital, but conceded a 1-2 defeat. It’s not
that surprising, of course – the Bavarians are incredibly strong at the moment.
Maybe Lokomotiv’s manager Marko Nikolic will be making some changes in his line-up for
this game. Against Bayern Munich he used Rybchinskiy, Rajkovic and Lisakovich from the
bench, but don’t be surprised if you see some of them from the first minute on Tuesday.
Atletico Madrid had a crushing defeat against Bayern Munich in the first round of the
competition, but last week Los Colchoneros recorded their first win. It was probably more
difficult than they expected, but they still celebrated a 3-2 win over Salzburg at the Wanda
Metropolitano. Joao Felix scored twice for Atleti and turned out to be the hero of the night.
With Bayern Munich being the top dog in this group, Atletico Madrid are aware they must
try their best to get the second place and progress to the 1/8-finals. This club usually
reaches the knockout phase of the Champions League, so for them it’d be a huge
dissapointment if they fail to do it.
In our football best betting tips we believe Atletico Madrid will enter the pitch in Moscow as
favourites. Diego Simeone’s team is better, but usually it’s very hard to play in Russia. Los
Colchoneros must make a serious effort to get the three points here, but we believe they
are perfectly aware.
