      Lokomotiv Moscow vs Sporting Lisbon Predictions

      Lokomotiv Moscow will be eyeing up the knockout phase of the Europa League as they prepare to host Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon on Thursday night.

      Lokomotiv are top of the table in Group H after picking up two wins and two draws in their first four games. Both of their draws came against Turkish side Besiktas, which means that any sort of result, win or draw against Sporting, should be enough to all but guarantee a top two finish in the group.

      Considering some of their impressive domestic form, in particular a recent 3-0 win over Benfica, Sporting will be disappointed by their performances in European football so far this season. Sporting need to make the difficult trip to Russia and realistically need to pick up three points to stand any chance of progressing in the competition.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Sporting don’t travel well

      A 3-0 away defeat to Skenderbeu illustrates the point pretty clearly. They haven’t travelled well in Europe throughout the competition.

      2. Lokomotiv home form

      In general, Lokomotiv are playing good football and they’re always a tough out in Russia in European football. They’ll have a focus and determination in this game.

      3. Defensive stifling

      Lokomotiv Moscow will clog up the middle of the field and make life uncomfortable for Sporting Lisbon’s creative and talented midfield.
