CSK vs LOK Dream11 : First derby of the Russian Premier League set to explode the showpiece league today as CSKA Moscow and Lokomotiv Moscow face off against each other
After falling to a stunning defeat against Samara, CSKA Moscow managed to get their first win of the 2019-20 edition of the Russian Premier League with a 2-1 win against Orenburg. Although it wasn’t one that bellied too much confidence from the side with the back line in particular continuing to remain a source of woe for the side, they’ll be looking to build on the three points today when they take on Lokomotiv Moscow.
For last year’s second placed side, Lokomotiv Moscow, the newest edition of the marquee league brought with it the immense opportunity to go on and better that performance. And the side have gotten to a relatively steady start as well, yet to be undefeated in the two matches they have scoured through till now.
After drawing their opening encounter, the side went onto register a 2-1 win against Tambov, one which place them in fifth place in the league as of now. The side will be fully aware though that if they want to fully assert themselves as title contenders, they need to win matches like today’s imminent encounter. A win in today’s revered derby will not only see them stamp their authority on the league but also walk away from the encounter with a win over their bitter rivals.
With both the sides having traversed through identical results in the league, the only reason we are going to side with Lokomotiv Moscow is their backline. Although they are yet to keep a cleansheet, their opponents are paper thin in defence, a side which can be easily obliterated when put under pressure. Expect this to be a relatively high scorer, one where Lokomotiv Moscow have just about enough to come out with the three points.
