Ufa vs Lokomotiv: three points to Loko?
Ufa almost got relegated from the Premier League last season. In order to improve the team's position in the new season, the club hired Alexey Stukalov to become the new manager. Ufa kicked off the new season in Moscow against CSKA. The Townspeople showed good football but still lost to the formidable opponent with a score of 0: 1. They had a lot of scoring chances, but couldn't find the back of the net.
In the second round, Ufa had a very dramatic home game against Dynamo. Already in the first half, they conceded a penalty, and before halftime were losing 0:2. In the 75th minute, one of Ufa's players got a red card and was sent off. However, Hamid Agalarov, who came on as a substitute, scored a double and almost saved his team from a defeat, but Dynamo managed to score another goal before the final whistle.
Lokomotiv had an excellent season, or more precisely - the second half of the season. They fought for a ticket to the Champions League qualification, but ended up finishing third. Before the start of the new season, Loko underwent a big change in the team. Grzegorz Krychowiak was the first of the key players to leave, he was signed by Krasnodar.
Marko Nikolic's team started the season with a 0:3 defeat in the Russian Super Cup from Zenit. However, their start in the Premier League was more confident. In the first round, Lokomotiv earned a strong-willed victory over Arsenal (3:1), making an impressive comeback at the very end of the game. In the second round, Loko also won from conceding first. In the Moscow derby, CSKA scored first, but Loko won with a score of 2:1. They are currently 3rd in the standings.
In the last four games of Lokomotiv, this score was recorded twice.
This bet played in the last two games of Lokomotiv.
Lokomotiv conceded in the first half in the last two games.
Lokomotiv started rebuilding their team already at the start of the season, but so far all the changes have not affected the results: the Red-greens won both games against very difficult opponents. Today the club from Moscow will also strive for victory and Ufa is unlikely to stop them. Loko has a serious advantage in class, and the team has gained excellent form.
We believe that the guests have a better chance of winning. Our prediction - Asian handicap (0) to Lokomotiv.

Ufa has problems in the defense line and also with the discipline, which they demonstrated in the first two rounds - it is difficult for the Townspeople to play against the big teams. Lokomotiv is the clear favourite, and he should score three points, but we do not expect the Red-greens to crash the opponent.
Our second bet- Lokomotiv to win by 1 goal.
