THE PREDICTION

It is always a surprise when Zenit drop points but especially when they lose and that is exactly what happened last time out when they fell to a 1-0 defeat to Dinamo Moscow and they now travel to the capital again to face Lokomotiv. However, the hosts come into this after two bitterly disappointing defeats to Spartak Moscow and Akhmat Grozny respectively and they face the prospect of losing a third league game in a row for the first time since 2016. There is likely to be a response from Zenit here – especially as Spartak have usurped them at the top of the table – but they may well concede along the way as Lokomotiv have scored in every game they have contested this season, including the 2-1 defeat to Zenit in the Super Cup three weeks ago.
