Atletico Madrid vs Lokomotiv Moscow Free Betting Tips
Leverkusen must win the home game against Juventus in any case. Should this difficult task be mastered, contactor assistance in parallel play is needed. Wanda Metropolitano faces Atletico Madrid and Lokomotiv Moscow.
The Simeone charges from Madrid are currently one point ahead of the Werkself and have also won the direct duel. The guests from Russia started with the away win in Leverkusen in the group stage, but recently had to take four defeats en suite and have already before the last group game no chance for the winter.
The initial situation could not be more different. Accordingly, there are no doubts on the part of the bookmakers and Atletico Madrid against Lokomotiv Moscow are only offered odds for a tip of 1.20!
Atletico Madrid – Statistics & Current Form
With seven points from the first three games of the group stage, the Rojiblancos started strong, but last missed, early to close the bag and may accordingly not allow a slip-up on the final day. Even a draw could possibly be too little and mean the premature end.
The self-confidence of the Simeone Elf is certainly under attack, after the recent results were far from satisfactory. Of the last eight competitive matches, the Spanish top club has just won the league match against the current bottom bracket Espanyol Barcelona victorious. Striking is above all the inefficiency in front of the opponent’s case.
Also on Friday evening, the Simeone-Elf was equal to several great chances partially negligent and had to be content with a goalless draw against the yellow submarine from Villarreal. After 16 matchdays, 26 points are thus on the credit side – negative record under Diego Simeone (since December 2011 in office).
In the home stadium, Atletico Madrid is a real power. Only one of the last 24 international home games have the Spaniards lost (19 wins, four draws). A slip-up against the already excreted Russians would be synonymous with this statistic a real sensation. Nevertheless, between Atletico Madrid and Lokomotiv Moscow we refrain from a tip in the three-way market, since the quotas offered promise no value.
Expected formation of Atletico Madrid:
➦ Oblak – Lodi, Hermoso, Felipe, Trippier – Saul Niguez, Thomas, Herrera, Koke – Joao Felix, Morata

Lokomotiv Moscow – Statistics & Current Form
The Russians celebrated a 2-1 away win at Bayer 04 Leverkusen on Matchday 1 of the group stage. For Lokomotiv Moscow it was their first away win in the UEFA Champions League group stage since the 2002/03 season.
After this perfect start, however, it put four defeats en suite. Due to the lost direct comparison with the Bosz-Elf the retirement before the last game is already sad certainty.
The Russian vice champion can thus focus on the domestic championship. After 19 matchdays, the team of head coach Yuri Semin ranked fifth in the table. The championship is not an issue with eleven points behind, however, the second-placed FK Krasnodar has only one more counter on the credit side than the Russians.
The away game at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium will be Russia’s last competitive match for a long time. The team does not start the journey with great self-confidence. Only one of the last five league games was won, last weekend Lokomotiv Moscow slipped in Arsenal Tula in a fierce 0: 4 debacle!
The motivation is certainly not the biggest in view of the initial situation. It is quite possible that Yuri Semin will spare some players. In the defeat against Arsenal Tula missing among others goalkeeper Guilherme, Anton Miranchuk, Joao Mario or Jefferson Farfan.
Due to the defensive strength of the home side would be a goal quite surprising. Depending on the bookmaker, odds of well over 2.00 are offered for this bet between Atletico Madrid and Lokomotiv Moscow.
Expected lineup of Locomotiv Moscow:
➦ Kochenkov – Rybus, Corluka, Höwedes, Ignatjev – Tugarev, Kolomeytsev – Kolomeytsev, Mukhin, Zhemaletdinov – Smolov
