Juventus vs Lokomotiv Moscow: The Russians are unlikely to stop the Juve’s  winning run

The Biancconeri are delighted to host Lokomotiv Moscow in their home soil and will be looking for the seventh victory in a row, in all competitions. The Turin side cannot take the foot off the gas as they wait for the Russians on Tuesday in a comfortable manner being on top of the group D, with same points as Atletico Madrid. The italian giants continue to dominate the Serie A the same as they have done in recent years, but the year under Maurizi Sarri will most likely have the focus on succeeding in Europe. Lokomotiv Moscow on the other side are travelling to Turin in a good form having won six out of the last seven clashes. This one against Juventus will be with lots of injury concerns.

Juventus News:

Juventus will be looking to extend their winning run against Lokomotiv Moscow and aim to stay top of the group after having shown comfortable performances recently. The hosts look to have the best team in years and Maurizio Sarri’s eye to detail has raised them to a higher level. It is difficult to imagine a scenario with Juventus failing to make it against the Russians. Cristiano Ronaldo is eager to be on the scoresheet, and break the Raul’s record on scoring to different opponents. The double-header against Lokomotiv will be the chance to book a spot for the next round.

Lokomotiv Moscow News:

Lokomotiv Moscow have won two matches after the last Champions League defeat against Atletico, and now sit first on the Premier League table. However, the visitors have not been faring well in Europe and they could only manage a narrow win against Bayer Leverkusen in the opening clash of the group stage. Last season the Russians failed to impress ending bottom of the group with Porto, Schalke and Galatasaray all ending above them. Considering the injury crisis in the visitors camp, it is hard to see them throwing a spanner in the works at the top of this group.

Juventus Team News:

Szczesny will  be back on goal after being replaced by Gianluigi Buffon on Saturday. Blaise Matuidi is the other one expected to be on field after being rested on the match against Bologna. Ramsey or Bernardeschi will be positioned in the trequartista role. Adrien Rabbiot or Bentancur will be on competition to start if Sami Khedira cannot make it. We will have to see if Danilo will be selected to take the right-back spot after the great performances of Juan Cuadrado.

Lokomotiv Moscow Team News:

Mikhail Lysov and Benedikt Howedes were only fit enough to be benched in the last Friday match. The German and the former Juventus man is expected to start tonight. Vladislav Ignatjev and Dimitri Barinov are expected to start after missing the Friday clash due to suspension. Jefferson Farfan and Boris Rotenberg will be unlikely to travel with the team.

Probable Lineups:

Juventus Lineups: Wojciech Szczesny, Juan Cuadrado, Leonardo Bonucci, Matthijs De Ligt, Alex Sandro, Sami Khedira, Miralem Pjanic, Blaise Matuidi, Federico Bernardeschi, Gonzalo Higuain, Cristiano Ronaldo;Coach: Maurizio Sarri

Lokomotiv Moscow Lineups: Guilherme Marinato, Vladislav Ignatjev, Benedikt Howedes, Vedran Ćorluka, Bryan Idowy, Murilo Cerqueira, Aleksey Miranchuk, Dmitriy Barinov, Grzegorz Krychowiak, Joao Mario, Eder; Coach: Yuri Semin

Match Facts:

-Juventus is yet to taste defeat in all competitions this season. They are in an eleven matches unbeaten streak.

-Juventus and Lokomotiv Moscow have met once in the UEFA Cup, with Juve winning both matches on a 4-0 aggregate.

-Lokomotiv Moscow win against Bayer Leverkusen was only the third one in  away matches, and that came after the 17th attempt.

Match Prediction:

We expect Biancconeri to overcome Lokomotiv Moscow and do it without any hiccups. They have scored three against Bayer and another two against Atleti. They will probably score more on this one. The Russians have showed an encouraging performance against Bayer and we know how difficult these teams might be. But the injury crisis may dictate their set up and this most likely be exploited by Juventus forward line.

Prediction: Juventus
