The home team is currently in 2nd place, with 47 points won, after 14 wins, 5 draws and 5 losses. In the penultimate match, they won at home against Gazovik Orenburg by (1‑0). In the last match, they won in an away match against Rubin Kazan, by (0‑2).

Little by little, the Russian championship is coming to an end, but Lokomotiv Moscow will not give up the title. As long as he has a chance, he will be in the fight, so he is determined to reduce his distance to the leader. So, only the three points interest him in this match, even more because he plays in his stadium. He must have respect for his rival, but he has favoritism on his side. So if you play good football, you shouldn’t have a hard time winning.
Krylya Sovetov :
After 6 wins, 4 draws and 14 losses, the visiting team is currently in 16th position, with 22 points won. In their last match, they lost to Zenit Saint Petersburg away by (2‑1), after in the previous match they lost at home, in a match against Terek Grozny, by (2‑4). Curiously, this is a team that has achieved more positive results outside than at their stadium, as they have won 13 points on the road and only 9 at their stadium. For the championship, Krylya Sovetov conquered 13 points out of 30 possible, after 4 wins, 1 draw and 5 losses in the last 10 games he played as a visitor. In their away matches for the league the most frequent final result at half-time was 0‑1 (5 in 12 games). The team allowed the opponent goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition, so he was not very strong defensively. In 24 matches in this tournament, he suffered the first goal 10 times and never got the comeback.
Krylya Sovetov is coming off a loss and that is very bad for the team as they are fighting directly against relegation. As the championship is coming to an end, changes will have to happen. It is more than time to try to improve, because otherwise you may end up falling apart. This game is going to be difficult, but you need to score points. Therefore, you will have to present a better football than in previous games if you want to surprise.
