Lokomotiv Moscow vs Arsenal Tula: Preview & Prediction
The capital city Lokomotive Moscow is one of the most popular clubs in Russia. Despite the strong competition in the city, the traditional club has a big fanbase behind it. At the beginning of the 2000s, it was possible to achieve some great success and thus achieved a greater degree of popularity. In the years 2002 and 2004 the only championships of the club history could be entered. More successful was the cup competition. This one could be decided seven times for itself. The last time in the past season, with a sovereign 2: 0 victory against Ural Oblast Sverdlovsk. It was the second title in the last ten years and thus balm for the loyal fans. Also this season one has made a lot. On the one hand you want to get back into the top 5. On the other hand, the group stage of the Europa League is to be successful. Two ambitious goals, given that they have not been approached in the recent past. To change this, the club has strengthened itself during the summer break. With Solomon Kvirkvelia an experienced interior defender was brought. This is to give the defense in the newly formed triple chain. Igor Denisov, also a new addition, The central midfielder can already look back on 54 international matches as well as some European Cup games. On Sunday the two experienced players were able to prove their skills. In the Supercup came the duel with the local rival and champion Spartak Moscow. In a thrilling game Lok Moscow had to be defeated in the extra time with 1: 2. Both Kvirkvelia and Denisov were immediately convinced. The latter led the team even as captain on the playing field. On Tuesday, the Russian league will start and the duel with Arsenal Tula will start. Against the relegation candidates, a clear victory is indispensable for their own demands. With the performance shown on Sunday, this should not be a problem either.
For the Russian big clubs, Tula has been a really nice trip. On the one hand, the city of Tula is only about 2 hours south of Moscow and is therefore easy to reach. On the other hand, this has sporting reasons. Against the big clubs from Moscow and St. Petersburg had so far not much to report and went mostly as losers from the place. A draw is already the highest of emotions. In the last season, too, they were fighting for the descent. First, after 38th game days, you were penultimate in the table. So you could just climb a relegation place. In the relegation followed two games against Yenisei Krasnoyarsk. These were again very exciting and in the end, the goal of the goal was decisive. After this flattering victory in the relegation, the fate was secured in the highest Russian game class. This season will again be a serious one. In the summer break, only a potential reinforcement has been undertaken so far. With Goran Causic comes a new strong man for the midfield center. But also with this new commitment one will probably again play around the descent. On Tuesday, the start of the season will be a difficult duel. Although Lok Lok have still the best statistics compared to the other capital clubs, but this is not a good thing. In addition, Lok Moscow has quite ambitious goals this season and will be able to start from the start. A small advantage could be that Lok’s easily redesigned team has not yet been perfect. But even if this is so, it will be a difficult first day for Arsenal Tula.
