Lokomotiv Moscow

      Tip Reasoning

      Lokomotiv Moscow are on an excellent run of form at the moment, and they can extend their lead at the top of the group with a win over Besiktas on Thursday.

      They are enjoying a seven match unbeaten streak at the moment, and they have won six of those games. Their only draw was against Russian Premier League title rivals CSKA Moscow.

      This period of good form has seen them win their opening two group games of the Europa League, a 3-1 win over Sporting CP in the opening round of fixtures and a 2-0 victory against Skenderbeu.

      They have actually only lost one of their last 15 matches in all competitions, but despite this excellent form still trail Russian Premier League leaders CSKA Moscow by five points after 12 league games.

      Besiktas top the Turkish Super Liga after the first eight rounds of games in their domestic season. They have picked up 19 points from these eight games to leave them two points clear of Turkish giants Fenerbahce and Galatasaray.

      They have also picked up four points from their two Europa League games, with a 1-0 win at Skenderbeu and a 1-1 draw at home to Sporting giving them their points.

      Besiktas are also enjoying a decent looking unbeaten streak at the moment, with none of their last eight competitive games ending in defeat.

      Besiktas have won the only two matches these sides have played against each other, with a double of 3-1 victories seeing them qualify for the Champions League back in 2000.

      I think they have a good chance of getting a result on Thursday as well. They come into the match in good form and are evenly matched in terms of quality with Lokomotiv. Odds of 4/5 for a Besiktas Win or Draw Double Chance look like they offer a lot of value as well, so that’s what I’m backing along with a 1-1 draw at 5/1.
