For the match with Lokomotiv, Rostov cannot rely on Baburin, Glebov and Ionov, while the Muscovites do not have Djordjevic, Farfan, Kvirkvelia, Miranchuk and Rotenburg at their disposal. Although there are no chances for the title, Lokomotiv hopes for a new qualification in the Champions League, but Rostov is a very difficult opponent. Remarkable is that in 6 of the last 7 direct duels both teams scored, and the bet "Over 2.5 goals" each time had excellent odds.
Rostov is in 3rd place in Russia (goal 38-31), and the team coached by Valery Karpin has four consecutive stages without internal failure. Lomokotiv also has 38 points, but is in 4th place (golaveraj 29-24) and boasts one of the best defenses in the championship. After 21 stages, the fight for the podium is balanced. The two teams played a friendly in February, won by Lokomotiv in overtime, after being 3-3 during the regular season. It is possible to see a spectacular match again!
That is why we believe that none of the managers will take too many risks in the first half of Sunday's derby. Rostov comes after a victory with CSKA Moscow (3-2), in which the goals of Eremenko, Popov and Mamaev set the final result. CSKA played, however, in the double numerical inferiority, also missing a penalty that could bring a point in the 86th minute through Chalov. Rostov receives goals easily and Lokomotiv wants to take advantage. In the last two stages, the Muscovites made 1-0 with Groznai and 0-0 with the Zenit leader.
