The home team is currently in 4th place, with 2 points earned, after 2 draws and 3 losses. In the penultimate match, lost out to Kobenhavn by (3-0). In the last match, lost out to Sheriff Tiraspol by (1-0).

In this competition, you have not won any of the last 5 games you played. Defensive solidity has not been his strong point, having conceded goals in 4 of the last 5 games, and his attack is not in good shape as he did not score goals in 4 of the last 5 matches in this competition. In 15 games, he only managed 1 turn on the scoreboard in the 6 games in which he conceded the first goal. In the last 9 home matches in all competitions there are 2 highlights: he scored 5 of his 11 goals in the minutes (76′-90 ‘); suffered 4 of his 10 goals between minutes (16’-30 ‘).
Zlín plays his farewell to this edition of the Europa League as he bitterly blames the Group F light and has no more chance of qualifying for the next round of the competition, being one of seven clubs that have yet to win. The club is not in good shape, having won just one win in the last seven games. Even in the Czech Championship the team has not been able to perform well, since it occupies only the ninth place among sixteen clubs, leaving much to be desired in offensive terms. This has been repeated in the continental tournament, both having the worst attack of Group F, with a goal scored, and also the most leaked defense. The coach has been frequently stirring in the team’s tactical scheme, but must keep Mehanovič in the starting eleven.
Review of Lokomotiv Moscow
After 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss, the visiting team is currently in 2nd place with 8 points. In the last match, they won by (2-1) at home against Kobenhavn, after the previous match, to have lost by (1-2) at home with Sheriff Tiraspol. This is a team that maintains the income when it plays outside its stadium, because in the last 30 games it registers 7 wins, 7 draws and 1 defeat as a visitor; against 10 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses in his stadium. The team arrives in this match after a home win with Rubin Kazan by (1-0). In the last 10 matches played in all competitions, Lokomotiv Moscow won 5, drawn 3 and lost 2. Their attack has scored regularly as they have scored goals in 4 of the last 5 games for this competition. This is a team that often scores first: opened the scoring in 12 of their last 15 games, of those 12 reached the break in lead in 4 and managed to maintain the lead until the end of the 90 ‘in 9. There are 1 periods featured in the last 20 matches played as a visitor for all competitions: he scored 11 of his 30 goals in the minutes (76’-90 ‘).
Lokomotiv Moscow are on the pitch needing a win to secure their place in the next round of the Europa League, as the draw is not enough and Kobenhavn can be reached. The club has a great phase and is packed for four consecutive victories, three of them by the Russian Championship. The last of them took place at home, in a very balanced game against Rubin Kazan, and showed a team very well posted defensively, reaching the winning goal in the final minutes. The team now occupies the isolated leadership of the Russian Championship, where it also holds the second best defense. However, who is gaining prominence in the continental tournament is the offensive sector, the best of Group F. The coach has been using numerous tactical formations, and probably will not give Fernandes among the starters.
