Tobias Gourlay’s eastern odyssey continues as he moves from Grozny to Moscow for another Russian Premier League game
Dinamo Moscow v Lokomotiv Moscow
In Chechnya yesterday, Grozny left it very late, but a 94th-minute strike gave them a 2-1 success over Arsenal Tula and us an Over 2.5 Goals winner.
We’re staying with the Russian Premier League today for a derby game from Moscow. Last time Lokomotiv Moscow went to Dinamo Moscow they lost 5-1. We see more goals on the cards this evening.
Dinamo’s first home match of the new season brought a 2-1 derby win over CSKA Moscow. Since Sandro Schwarz took charge midway through last term, 7/10 of Dinamo’s home league games have delivered Over 2.5 Goals. The hosts have scored at least twice themselves in 7/10, while only managing to keep clean sheets against three sides that finished in last season’s bottom four. Seven other visitors all got onto the scoresheet.
Across this season and last, Lokomotiv have both scored and conceded on four straight road trips. In the last year or so, 9/15 of their away games have produced Over 2.5 Goals so – at pick-em prices today – we want to be on the high side of the line.
