Our Prediction For This Game:

Today our focus is in group D. There are not many experiences that can come close to the atmosphere of Ali Sami Yen stadium when Galataasray host a Champions League match. Lokomotiv Moscow have not played well lately and they only made it to the Champions League with a lot of luck. So today’s tips is a win for Galatasaray, for which 888sport offers 1.89 odds for a home team to win.

Galatasaray:

Galatasaray is back in the Champions League and it will be great to see what they will offer this time. With players like Fernando Muslera, Selcuk Inan, Yuto Nagatomo and Younes Belhanda, they will definitely put up a good fight. In the Turkish league, they have got off to a great start with 14 points after 5 games. They have scored a very decent 14 goals, which gives them an average of 2.8 goals per match.

Lokomtiv Moscow:

Conversely, Lokomotiv Moscow did not get off to such a great start in the Russian league. They have only nine points from 7 games and are languishing at 10th place at the moment. The team is a massive 10 points behind Zenit St Petersburg, who is standing in first place. The current squad has not won any of its 10 latest away games in the Champions League. The last time they won away was 2003, so Galatasaray should win easy today.

Reason for and against the tip:

✓ Galatasaray is a much better team and they are strong at home.
✓ Galatasaray have started the league well with an average of 2.8 goals per game.
✓ Lokomotive Moscow have not won any of their latest 10 away games in the Champions League.
✘ This is the first game in the group stage and anything can happen.
