Ural vs Lokomotiv MoscowUral got promoted this summer and they are one of the main candidates for the drop. They`ve won just once in 9 rounds, agaisnt second from the bottom Tom Tomsk and at the moment, they lie on 13th place out of 16 teams. Home ground have not been an advantage for them, with only 2 of their points coming from home matches. Also, a disastrous scoreline in front of their fans: 4-13.
Lokomotiv have had a much better start of campaign comparing with last seasons (6 wins, 1 draw, 2 defeats) and if they can keep up the pace, they can get involved in the title battle, as they currently sit just one point behind the leading trio: Zenit + their Moscow rivals, Spartak and CSKA. Signing Lassana Diarra and Boussoufa from Anzhi proved to be a very smart move, as they added a lot of value to the team.
This should be a pretty unbalanced game, given the current form and value of the sides. It will also oppose Ural`s awful defense (worst defensive record in the league) with Lokomotiv`s stellar attack (best scoring in the league). Rubin and Dinamo Moskva, which, at the moment, are not stronger than Lokomotiv, have easily won against Ural in previous rounds (3-0 and 4-1), so I expect Lokomotiv to win with ease as well.
Pick: Lokomotiv M.
