Lokomotiv Moscow to Win
FC Ufa and FC Lokomotiv Moscow finished last season poles apart. The hosts were two places shy of the bottom slot, while Loko were two places adrift of pole position. It is easy to put money behind the visitors who have started the Premier League campaign with two successive victories unlike UFA, who have tasted defeat in their two outings.
Under 2.5 Goals
This will be the third successive match UFA play with a Moscow based outfit. CSKA claimed a 1-0 result while they had an interesting affair with Dynamo. That fixture ended 2-3 in favour of the capital club. With both Ufa and Loko having difficulty scoring regularly, we expect a low scoring affair in favour of the visitors.
0-1 Lokomotiv Moscow
It is high time that Aleksei Stukalov addressed Ufa's backline issues. In Lokomotiv Moscow, they have a tough contenders who have already scored five goals in two outings. This is one reason why we expect a low scoring affair. The other being that the last six outings have seen less than three goals. Moreover, three of these have finished with a 0-1 result in favour of Loko.

Match Preview of Ufa vs Lokomotiv Moscow
Ufa barely managed to avoid the drop last season and it seems it will be another battling year for them. While Gamid Agalarov continues to score goals to take pressure off Aleksei Stukalov's shoulders, their defensive frailties continue to haunt them. If they are to avoid a repeat of last year's showings, Ufa will have to forego their attacking instincts and finetune their defensive deficiencies.
A matchup of Gamid Agalarov with Lokomotiv Moscow's Rifat Zhemaletdinov is an enticing battle of two marksmen coming together. However, this is tilted in favour of the visitor, who led his side to a third-place finish last time around. If Loko continues their current trajectory, Marko Nikolic should surely guide them for a repeat.
