Salzburg vs Lokomotiv Moscow – UEFA Champions League Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction

Group A Match Day 1 encounter, with Salzburg taking on Lokomotiv Moscow on Wednesday the 21st of October, 2020, at Red Bull Arena.

Salzburg had to face Maccabi Tel Aviv in the playoffs to reach the group stage. We’ll never find out how things would have gone if Maccabi had all their players available. Many were out due to positive Covid-19 tests. Salzburg won 1-2 away from home, and then 3-1 as hosts, to book their ticket to the group stage. Their current form reads; WWWWW. They last played on Saturday, they beat St. Pölten 0-3 away from home in Austria’s Cup. In their championship they have maintained a perfect record thus far, winning all four games. It’s impressive that in eight official matches at the start of the season, Austria championship, Austria Cup, and UCL playoffs combined, Salzburg have scored an astonishing 35(!) goals. The only time they scored “just” two was in their away game versus Maccabi. Coach Jesse Marsch has been in charge since July 2019.

Unlike Salzburg, Lokomotiv did not have to go through qualifiers/playoffs to reach the group stage, in which they were present last season as well. Back then, they surprised many by beating Bayer Leverkusen 1-2 on their debut, in Germany, but then lost their next five matches, to Juventus, Atlético Madrid, and to Leverkusen at home. Their current form reads; WWWWD. They last played on Saturday, they beat Ufa 1-0 at home, in Russia’s championship. They are on 21 points from 11 games there, 4th on the table. Coach Marko Nikolic has been in charge since June this year. Under his command, Lokomotiv have built a reputation of a team solid defensively, and… “effective enough” offensively. Mind you, they have conceded just one goal in their last six matches in Russia’s championship.

Salzburg have played against five teams from Russia before, but Lokomotiv are not one of those.

Very interesting game, between a team that scores… freely, and one that hardly ever concedes...

A 1-0 victory for Salzburg is predicted at full-time.

Date: Wednesday, 21st of October, 2020.

Venue: Red Bull Arena

Kick-off time: 18:55 (GMT+2).
