THE PREDICTION

After winning their first two matches of the new campaign, Lokomotiv Moscow had to settle for a point against Ural on Wednesday but they were ultimately content with a share of the spoils after equalising in the dying minutes. The same can be said of Spartak, who came from behind to take a point from Ufa. Spartak have had the upper hand in this Moscow derby in recent times but Lokomotiv are a much stronger outfit these days and are more than capable of snatching a win here. It should certainly be competitive though, so backing both teams to score could be the profitable choice.
