Lokomotiv Moskva team news:
Lokomotiv shocked Juventus fans two weeks ago in Turin with an early lead provided by Aleksei Miranchuk, but the Semin’s squad failed to score valuable points against the favorites. Russian team missed a great opportunity to complicate the race in the Group D.
Now they have the imperative of winning if they want to stay in the race with the favored teams Juventus and Atletico for one of the first two positions. It is also important for Lokomotiv to retain the scoring advantage over fourth-placed Bayer, so one should not expect Semin’s squad to attack Juventus.
After all, Semin has problems with the absence of the attack, and his team form is not ideal, since Lokomotiv suffered heavy damage in the championship derby with Spartak. Afterwards, they only brought one point away against Ufa last Saturday.
Probable lineup: Guilherme, Ignatyev, Howedes, Murilo, Ćorluka, Rybus, Krychowiak, Barinov, Joao Mario, Al.Miranchuk, Eder.
Juventus team news:
With the victory in Moscow, the Juventus team would confirm their placement in the next round after four games of the group stage. Sarri’s team is achieving great results this season as it is also the league’s leading team in the Championship. Still, the renovated Juventus expected better performances.
After 14 official matches so far, Juventus is still unaware of the defeat, but it is significant that only two of the 11 wins so far have been achieved with more than one goal difference.
Due to suspension in competition, there is no wing striker Cuadrado, while due to injury, except for the long-absent experienced defender Chiellini, the young De Ligt will miss a visit in Moscow.
Probable lineup: Szczesny, Danilo, Bonucci, Demiral, Alex Sandro, Khedira, Pjanić, Matuidi, Ramsey, Dybala, Cristiano Ronaldo.
Both teams are in need for points in this match. Still, it is more than obvious that Juventus has a better team. So, without a doubt we except a certain victory for Italian team.
