Analysis and forecast for the match of the 24th round of the Russian Championship “Lokomotiv” – CSKA (04/13/2024)

On April 13, four matches will be played on matchday 24 of the Russian Championship. In the last of them, Lokomotiv and CSKA will meet in the Moscow derby at the RZD Arena stadium. The starting whistle is scheduled for 19:30 Moscow time.

The railway workers tried to strengthen their squad in winter selectively, but they did not succeed with the transfers. Gerzino Nyamsi ended up in the infirmary almost immediately. Other recruits don’t leave the best impression. Loko’s roster depth has improved, but the quality has not improved.

The red and green team were eliminated from the Russian Cup, losing first to Baltika (1-1, 6-7 on penalties) and then to Ural (0-1), who could not get out of the black streak. In the RPL, Mikhail Galaktionov’s team lost to Dynamo (1-2), drew with Sochi (2-2) and Krasnodar (1-1) and also defeated Akhmat (2-0).

Lokomotiv could have lost points in the match with Grozny. An early removal from the opponent’s lineup predetermined the course and outcome of the match. The team’s poor performance and poor results sparked rumors about Galaktionov’s resignation. The coach met with management to discuss the future and gain support.

After winning the match with Akhmat, the coach noted that it is important to get rid of the negative psychological background. It is interesting that under Galaktionov the railwaymen have very good statistics in the RPL. They score an average of two goals per game and rarely lose (only five defeats since their appointment).

The red-greens also score points more frequently than others in games in which they are initially inferior in scoring (20 points). Galaktionov is excellent at preparing his players for comebacks, as well as for meetings with the leaders. They beat Zenit twice (2-1 and 3-1) and drew twice with Krasnodar (both times 1-1).

For CSKA it is the other way around. He pleases the fans with his quality play, he creates many moments, but he lacks points. Vladimir Fedotov is a great expert in psychology. He has a special gift of persuasion. The coach managed to reactivate the careers of several footballers, in addition to supporting his individual development.

What is the problem, then? Why can’t Fedotov find the right words to stop the team from losing the lead? It’s about the mentality of the players. They lose passion and also feel very uncomfortable on the road.

In the match on matchday 22 of the RPL, the red and blue tied against Sochi (2-2), although in the 50th minute they were already winning 2-0. Personnel losses complicate Fedotov’s task. CSKA’s main defender Igor Diveev missed a lot due to injury. After the winter break, he returned to the team, but was faced with the need to regain lost form.

Another prominent CSKA defender, Willian Rocha, will miss the next match due to too many yellow cards. The experienced Igor Akinfeev is expected to have his work cut out for him. In the latter part of the season, the goalkeeper was in very good shape, but his efforts were often not enough. The military team conceded seven of the last nine games of the championship.

The lack of reliability in defense is compensated by excellent play in attack. The pace is set by the talented midfielder Abbosbek Faizullaev, who has become one of the main discoveries of the season. In 16 matches in the Russian championship, he scored three goals and four assists.

You can bet that OZ + TM 5.5 goals will play in bookmakers at odds of 1.85. Four of the last five head-to-heads ended this way. The other match was won by the army team by a minimal score difference: 1:0. We don’t expect too many goals. In the end, the railroaders also have a very reliable goalkeeper.

Recently there was news that Artyom Dzyuba could participate in the derby. He has recovered from an injury and is looking for goals. The forward has three effective actions left to automatically renew his contract with Loko. It’s not a bad motivation, but there is something more.

The placement of teams in the RPL standings is important. They occupy the fourth and fifth lines, having the same number of points. The difference with Dynamo, which occupies third place, is only two points. The fight for third place should be very intense.

Prediction and bets for the match RPL Lokomotiv – CSKA on April 13, 2024

Lokomotiv and CSKA are doing well in terms of performance, but there are problems of a defensive nature, in particular due to injuries. The teams are likely to score at least one goal each. It is unlikely that there will be more than five for two. The importance of the game and the history of direct confrontations advocate not scoring too many goals.

Tender: both will score and the total is less than 5.5 goals by 1.85.
