Champions League: Lokomotiv Moscow vs. Bayern Munich – prediction, team news, lineups
- Lokomotiv Moscow have conceded twice in each of their last six UCL matches.
- Lokomotiv Moscow have one clean sheet in their last 15 UCL matches.
- Bayern Munich have averaged four goals per match in the last five games.

Lokomotiv finished as runners-up in the Russian Premier League last season for the second successive campaign, having won the division in 2017-18. Last week’s draw at Salzburg was only the third time Lokomotiv have avoided defeat in their last 13 group games.
Things had been going well this season until the weekend’s disastrous 2-1 home defeat to Rotor Volgograd, who remain bottom of the Russian league. Lokomotiv now have more work on their hands to secure another top two finish – and subsequent Champions League qualification – with them currently occupying fourth in the table on 21 points after 12 matches.
