Lokomotiv Moscow were not expected to go to Bayer Leverkusen and get a result, but those three points have now put the Russian side in a great position ahead of the visit of Atletico Madrid.

Our Betting Tips

In a way the pressure is off the Russian side here after the win in Germany. Even just a point at home to Atletico Madrid would be a good result ahead of back-to-back fixtures against Juventus.

THE DRAW

It could be a frustrating night for both sets of attackers – and fans – in Moscow as both sides could see this as a defensive exercise in not conceding.

TOTAL GOALS UNDER 2

Lokomotiv have started the group stage in fine form and may fancy their chances at home against Atletico Madrid. But the draw no bet option gives punters a bit more safety.

Our Prediction for Lokomotiv Moscow vs Atletico Madrid

The Draw

Diego Simeone has a great record in this competition and has overseen some famous victories against bigger clubs. But his side is regarded as one of the best now and Lokomotiv would probably consider a draw a good result in this group.
