A battle of two teams on two different poles of the league in Russia.
The Lokomotiv Moscow team stands on the second position in the league and with 8 games to go they will try their best to mount pressure on the runaway leaders Zenit. The team has won 14 games out of the 24 they have played and need to win this game.
Krylya Sovetov will consider this a must win contest as they are at the very bottom of the league and need to get some wins on the board to get out of the relegation zone. They will need some points from this away game.
Lokomotiv will start as major favorites in this game.
Date- Monday, June 30
Kick-Off- 8:30 PM (ist)
Venue- Lokomotiv Stadium
The team are coming off a win in the last game against Rubin Kazan and will be expected to field pretty much the same game. They will play a 4-3-2-1 formation with Corluka being the goalkeeper and Eder at the center of attack. Miranchuk and Rybchinsky pull the strings in midfield.
Vedran Corluka, Saba Kvirkvelia, Maciej Rybus, Vladislav Ignatyev, Murilo, João Mário, Aleksei Miranchuk, Dmitri Rybchinsky, Anton Miranchuk, Éder, Timur Suleymanov
Krylia played a decent game against the top team in the league last time around and should look at performing in a similar manner however they will still focus on the defense where they will have Popovic to take up the counterattacking duties. The formation will be 4-3-2-1.
Krylia Sovetov (Expected Playing 11)
Yevgeni Frolov, Taras Burlak, Dmitri Kombarov, Mehdi Zeffane, Artem Timofeev, Denis Popovic, Dejan Radonjic, Dmitri Kabutov, Anton Terekhov, Anton Zinkovskiy, Maksim Glushenkov
Eder- The Portuguese veteran will be a major target man for his team. He will be at the top of the attack and is always likely to score a goal provide an assist wherever he can.
Aleksei Miranchuk – He is their main player and will be looking to replicate his form for the season which has seen him score 8 goals already and will be a key candidate to score.
Denis Popopvic – He has already scored in the last few games and is going to be a key person in the game for the Sovetov team.
Lokomotiv are the clear cut favourites heading into the fixture and should get maximum points here
Defenders- Burlak, Ignatiev, Rybus, Corluka
Midfielders- Popovic (VC), Miranchuk (C’), Krychowiak, Mario
Forwards- Eder, Glushenov
