Lokomotiv Moscow vs Zenit St. Petersburg prediction comes ahead of the Russian Premier League clash between Lokomotiv and Zenit in Moscow on Sunday. Let’s take a look at the match preview as we try to provide the best betting tips and correct score prediction for this tie.

Lokomotiv Moscow vs Zenit St. Petersburg Betting Tips

Lokomotiv have lost their last two games in the Russian first division now. They put up a massive effort against Spartak away from home, and deserved at least a point but unfortunately were reduced to a 2-1 defeat against their city rivals. This was just the beginning of a disappointing patch as they went down 2-3 to Akhmat Grozny at home in a space of 4 days again.

Now the club from Moscow play the table-toppers Zenit to add to their misery. Zenit have a near-perfect record in the Russian Premier League with 12 points from a possible 15, as they sit on the top of the table just 1 point ahead of PFC Sochi and Spartak Moscow. A loss on Sunday could cost them their top spot.

Lokomotiv have actually dominated the last few years in the Russian top flight and it’s evident in their head-to-head statistics against Zenit. They are undefeated in 5 of their last 6 games against the league leaders. But when the sides last met earlier this month, Zenit beat their Sunday’s hosts 2-1 to seal their first win over them in a long time.

Zenit’s clinical nature of finishing in front of the goal has been the highlight of their tactics so far this season. It’s as if every shot from a great angle inside the box is turned in by the visitors’ forward line. On the other hand, Lokomotiv are missing two key personnel in Aleksey Miranchuk and Dmitry Barinov. Since the absence of these two due to injuries, Lokomotiv have only fallen apart in their last 2 games.

Lokomotiv Moscow vs Zenit St. Petersburg Correct Score Predictions

A defeat last time around against Dinamo Moscow must have hurt Zenit a lot and they will be aching to get back to winning ways. But Lokomotiv away from home will be a tough trip even for the talented visitors’ squad. Nevertheless, Zenit are too superior to their counterparts this season and should see off this game with a 1-2 win away from home.
