In another early Saturday match of the 21st round of the Russian Premier League, Nizhny Novgorod "Pari NN" will play at home with Moscow "Locomotive". We bring to your attention the forecast for this duel.
In the new calendar year, things are not going very well for Pari NN, to put it mildly. Now the team under the leadership of the new head coach Artem Gorlov is on a 4-match series without victories. The Volga team lost to Zenit (0:3) and Rostov (1:2) on the road. Returning to their stadium, they first flew out of the Russian Cup from the same Rostov (0:1), after which there was a draw with Torpedo Moscow (1:1) in the championship, but due to a football player mistakenly declared for the match, they received a 0:3 technical defeat.
Lokomotiv are doing very well after the winter holidays with the new head coach Mikhail Galaktionov, who moved to Moscow from Paris NN in November. The Railwaymen have already got out of the zone of transitional matches, breaking away from the Nizhny Novgorod residents who were there by 3 points. On the road last month they defeated Rostov (3:1) and Akhmat (1:0), losing only in the Russian Cup to Akron (1:1, pen. 6:7). In the last round, Loko already managed to win a bright strong-willed victory over Krasnodar (3:2) on its own field.
Statistics and figures
- Pari NN has a 4-match winless streak (1 draw + 3 defeats);
- In three of the last four matches of "Pari NN" in the championship, the bet "Total more than 2.5 goals" was held;
- Paris NN has won only 2 matches out of the last nine at home, losing 6 times;

This season, Lokomotiv has already managed to lose to Pari NN in Nizhny Novgorod, but that was more than six months ago. Now the Muscovites look an order of magnitude more interesting than their opponent, and their head coach knows all the strengths and weaknesses of his former team perfectly, so due to this he should gain full 3 points with the "railwaymen".
