As part of the 8th round of the Uzbek Championship, Lokomotiv will host Metallurg. Will the hosts extend their winless streak?
"Railwaymen" started in the championship with two defeats, and then they were replaced by two draws. At the same time, the team was doing well in attack, it scored regularly, but the problem was that the defense made mistakes over and over again. In the three extreme rounds, the situation changed by half: the goals conceded did not go away, but the goals scored became more, thanks to which we managed to win three victories. Now Lokomotiv occupies the 5th place with 11 points.
The club from Bekabad remains the only one with no draws yet. In seven rounds, Metallurg achieved three wins and lost four times. If in the first four matches there were more defeats - three against one, then in the last three the picture has changed - two victories and one loss. With nine points, Metallurg occupies the eighth position.
Statistics and figures:
- "Lokomotiv" does not lose five rounds in a row;
- Metallurg hasn't shared the points yet: 3 wins and 4 losses;
- "Lokomotiv" lost to "Metallurg" on the field in one match out of sixteen.
"Lokomotiv" accelerated and forgot what defeats are. Metallurg looks much more modest, with more defeats than wins. I believe that the club from Bekabad will not be able to resist the opponent who has gained form.
