As part of the final match of the Russian Cup, the players of Lokomotiv and Krylia Sovetov will come face to face. Which side will win this game? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this match.
Lokomotiv Moscow played poorly in the first part of the season. Marko Nikolic's team gave a lot of effort in the Champions League, but in the end, these efforts were in vain. For the winter break, Loko were at the bottom of the table and looked frankly weak. Nevertheless, after the winter break, the team was able to add and gave out a series of victories, which allowed it to reach the third place in the standings. In theory, the "railwaymen" may still be second, but the gap to "Spartak" is 3 points, which you need to win back in two rounds. In the last round of the RPL, Loko drew 0:0 with Dynamo in the derby.
"Wings of the Soviets»
The Samara team left the Premier League at the end of last season. However, the "Wings" set a goal to enter the RPL as soon as possible, with whom the team of Osinkin coped immediately, having previously guaranteed their entry into the elite. At the moment, "Krylia" leads the FNL with 98 points in the asset. The second "Orenburg" has 7 points less. In the last matches of the Russian Cup, the Samaritans were able to defeat Khimki, Dynamo, and also beat Akhmat in a penalty shootout.
Statistics and figures:
- The hosts are the favorites of the meeting;
- Loko has a 2-match losing streak;
- Krylia Sovetov won 4 matches in a row;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the rivals ended with the score 1: 1.
Lokomotiv failed to win in the last two meetings, but this time, it seems, the team of nominal hosts will be able to win the match, and, with it, the title in the tournament.
