Analysis and forecast for the match RPL CSKA – Lokomotiv (08/05/2023)
It is difficult for CSKA to enter the season. In the first round of the RPL, the army team was defeated by Ural with a score of 1: 2, and then defeated Akhmat in Grozny (3: 2). All five goals were scored from the penalty spot, both teams had claims against referee Vyacheslav Bezborodov. The referee showed CSKA defender Milan Gaich a red card, but it was annulled due to breach of VAR protocol.
This is a great help to Vladimir Fedotov, because his short bench has become even shorter. Igor Diveev left for a long time, Willian Roshi’s appearance on the field is questionable. Nor will Jorge Carrascal be there, who is looking for a new club. But Fedotov showed that he can achieve results even in difficult conditions. He sure there will be signings, but the fatigue has not accumulated yet. Furthermore, this will be the home debut of the new RPL season. So Lokomotiv will have a hard time.
The Railroaders scored four points in the first two rounds. First they saved themselves in a match with Rubin (2:2), then they beat Fakel (4:1). But despite the loss, Mikhail Galaktionov has a lot of work to do. The combinations are shuffled in the center of the defense, but the problem is not solved. So far, the attack is helping, but Lokomotiv have yet to meet really serious opponents.
That yes, the personal resource of the rojiverdes is preferable, but the CSKA for the moment is a much more oiled mechanism. Of course, Vladimir Fedotov will try to give the ball to the opponent and catch the guests on counterattacks. And the army team will definitely have moments: even Rubin and Fakel were able to knock on the doors of Ilya Lantratov. And the attack group of the home team will be much more serious.
At the same time, Lokomotiv’s attack is very strong. Artyom Dzyuba, Sergey Pinyaev, Maxim Glushenkov strengthen the game from the bench. And Nair Tiknizyan also scored a lot – the CSKA graduate scores in every match. But the railway workers still have to work and work on the balance of the game. We recommend betting that CSKA will not lose and both teams will score. You can bet on such a result for 2.09 on the Winline.
