I deffinitely see a comfortable win of the hosts, who have had a great start to the season. Lokomotiv Moscow have won all 3 matches so far including the city derby against CSKA 3:1. The hosts obviously want more from this season, and their results so far are clearly the product of their quality. That goal against CSKA has been the only one they allowed in 3 games, proving that they are very strong defensively. Natcho and Corluka have been injured for a while, and they managed to win all these games without them, so I can only imagine how well they will look with those guys in the squad. Ari got injured, but Semin can surely make some formation changes, as he did against Anzhi were Farfan played as the forward. The hosts have more than enough quality and depth to completely own this match, and I expect from them to push the weak hosts from the start.
SKA will obviously struggle throughout the whole season, as Premier League is just too much for them at this moment. The guests have lost all 3 matches so far without even scoring a single goal, having lost 2 games this way (2:0). They will especially have many problems on the road, as every away game is like a nightmare for this team. They have to travel hours and hours for every game on the road, and for this one they need 9 to get to Moscow, which is just too much. SKA had 2 shots on goal in total in their 2 away games against CSKA and Arsenal Tula, and it is really a miracle they haven't allowed couple more goals. This is their reality, and I am not sure they can get eny better.
Lokomotiv Moscow have had such a strong start that it seems impossible to me they can fail here. The visitors will hardly have any chance, and the hosts are more than capable of scoring 2 or 3 goals. I believe they can cover this one. Good luck!
