Lokomotiv Moscow hosts Red Bull Salzburg in round 5 of the Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Tuesday, December 1st at RZD Arena (Moscow)
Lokomotiv Moscow takes third place in the group due to its intransigence on the football pitch. Nikolic's men took points away from Salzburg and the formidable Atletico (twice). To reach the next stage, the team needs to gain three points in the upcoming match and try to earn them in the confrontation with Bayern Munich. Lokomotiv has problems with victorious results on all fronts. The team is in the middle of the RPL standings. The quality of the Moscow club's roster is quite good, but not all of the leading players are in optimal shape now. So far, the star newcomers of the Railwaymen (Camano, Ze Luis, and Rajkovic) have shown their level. Smolov, Krychowiak, Anton Miranchuk, Corluka, and Guilherme took leadership qualities.

The Austrian grandee steadily reached the final stages of the Europa League. However, Red Bull is not yet ready to qualify for the playoff stage in the Champions League. Jesse Marsch's men can fight for a ticket to the 1/8 finals only in case of two victorious results in the final rounds of the group stage. To do this, Salzburg needs to improve its actions in defense, which makes too many mistakes. The club always focuses on young footballers. Only a few experienced players are the regulars in the starting lineup - Ulmer, Ramalho, Junuzovic, and Stankovic. However, Red Bull has enough talented youth - Wober, Camara, Szoboszlai, Daka, Keita, and Mwepu. These players are already attracting interest from European giants.
None of the clubs has the right to make a mistake because defeat means the collapse of hopes for the Champions League playoffs. Lokomotiv will surely not beat Bayern Munich in the last round. Salzburg will have to confront the motivated machine of Simeone. Points must be taken here and now. The home team will play in its usual pragmatic style and will try to convert one of the goal attempts. Given the weakness of the Austrian defense, Nikolic's players will have a chance. And they will probably not lose with a difference of more than one goal.
Prediction for the match: Lokomotiv Moscow to win with +1.5 handicap
