Lokomotiv Moscow vs Atlético de Madrid – Betting Tip and Prediction
On the 1st leg meeting, Atlético has won 3-0, which leaves Lokomotiv practically out of this Europa League.
The side managed by Simeone is currently one of the most consistent teams defensively, having only conceded goals in 3 of the last 11 matches they’ve played.
I don’t believe that Lokomotiv will be able to create a lot of goal opportunities, just like I don’t see Atlético pushing up the tempo, considering they have a comfortable advantage from the 1st leg.
