Ural vs Lokomotiv Moscow (By: DamirJ)
Ural had a very important semi-finals Cup game away to Arsenal Tula last Wednesday, managing to pull out a 2:2 draw despite all the odds since they were playing with a man less for the last hour of the game.
Luckily for them, the side progressed to the big finale, while they secured the stay in the league recently, thanks to other results of the rival teams since they have no victory in the last three rounds.
Lokomotiv Moscow also had their Cup's game last Wednesday getting 2:0 victory which made them progress to the finals as well in a deserved manner after all.
They also come from a 4:0 home victory over Rubin Kazan in Premier League keeping two points distance over Krasnodar in a race for the Champions League group stage ticket. Meaning that a victory here is a must for them.
Ural secured their stay in the Premier League for the next season and this match doesn't come with a competitive motive anymore for them. Lokomotiv remains under pressure and is a huge favorite in this one, however with the firm performances they have and steady defensive lineup, I can't see this one being a goal festival.
A simple victory with a goal or two scored and with a clean sheet does look very likely in this one.
