Description: LOK Vs AKM Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Lokomotiv Moscow find themselves in dire need of a win as the club plummets in the points tally
After both of their opening encounters in the Russian Premier League, Lokomotiv Moscow have now gone without a win in each of their last two matches. The foregone 2-1 defeat was the side’s first defeat this season, a result particularly hard to digest for the club.
It was due to the identity of their opponents with Lokomotiv Moscow not only losing to one of the contenders for this season’s title but their feisty and much hated city rivals. Putdown by Spartak Moscow on the day, Lokomotiv Moscow for the first time ever this season went onto concede more than two goals in a clash.
Their current slump in form followed by the spate of injuries to have rocked the club puts Lokomotiv Moscow in a dilemma at the moment. With matches coming in thick in this congested schedule, the team has a real challenge on its hands today as it looks to overhaul its waning form when it faces off against Akhmat Grozny.
LOK Vs AKM Dream11 Probable Winner
Akhmat Grozny’s form has been completely opposing to Lokomotiv Moscow. After failing to register a win in two, the club now has two wins on the bounce, results which have spurred the team all the way into 6th place.
However, the fact that those wins came against bottom of the league teams can’t be negated. Even with a depleted side, Lokomotiv Moscow make for an entirely different proposition, a team Akhmat Groszy will falter to come out unscathed against.

Dream 11 Picks
The only way Akhmat Grozny can not succumb to a defeat today is by bolstering their defence. With Lokomotiv Moscow set to be without a slew of regular starters, the club will find it tricky to string together the attacking plays.
And with Giorgi Shelia at their disposal, we envision Akhmat Grozny furthering the home side’s plight. He’s a worldclass shot stopper, someone capable of clobbering shots piled his way.
Lokomotiv Moscow might have gone onto ship the two goals in their 2-1 defeat the last time around but that does little to dissuade us from opting for an all Lokomotiv Moscow defence today. This is a side which has two cleansheets in four, a side which prior to last match had let in the solitary goal in three fixtures.
Wen envisage the home side returning to its defensive acumen come today it see a triad be doled out by us. Its one comprising of Maurile Cerqueira, Maciej Rybus and Vedran Corluka.
While Aleksei Miranchuk was always going to find a place in our setup for today’s tie, the injuries his side has suffered make him a must have selection. Lokomotiv Moscow’s top scorer, he’ll be asked to carry the entire burden of scoring for the side amidst an injury crisis.
Slotting In next to him is Dmitry Rybchinsky. Creator for two goals for the side, his ball handling abilities and ability to transition possession from defence to attack has seen him keep the ball moving quickly for the side.
Grzegorz Krychowiak will complete the trio of picks from the club while Akhmat Grozny sees us rope in the two selections for today’s tie. We begin our partnership with Odise Roshi who has two goals, paring him up with Bernanrd Berisha who has popped up with the one assist for the side.
Vladimir Iljin makes his way alongside the two. The side’s top scorer, he ahs the two goals and one assist, numbers which are vindictive of the manner in which he’s spruced his side to two wins on the spin.
The home side will see the diminutive Rifat Zhemaletdinov wrap up our side for the impending square off.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Having played a role in three goals for his side, Aleksei will be our captain for today while Dmitry is the vice-captain.
