These odds from 888sport were correct at the time of writing.

Lokomotiv Moscow Double Chance

Lokomotiv Moscow suffered a surprise 2-1 defeat at home to Rostov in their homeland before the international break, though they are usually far more reliable on their own patch. Indeed, Lokomotiv had lost just once in 17 home assignments before that shock reverse and their ability to carve out results at the RZD Arena makes them an interesting price in the double chance market against poor European travellers Galatasaray.

Both Teams to Score

BTTS bettors have enjoyed plenty of success in Galatasaray’s away matches this term and both teams have scored in four of their last six matches on the road in all competitions. Both teams have also notched in five of Lokomotiv’s last six home games and with recent form a compelling indicator, we recommend sticking the to the same BTTS market on Thursday.

Lokomotiv Moscow +1 Goal

Lokomotiv generally don’t concede a ton of goals (13 in 13) and their knack for keeping things tight at the back could open up an opportunity to back them in the +1 goal handicap this week. That bet would have landed in 11 of Lokomotiv’s last 13 fixtures in all competitions – including their Group E home test against Marseille – and we’re tipping the Russians to cover the line again against Galatasaray.
