In the last match, they lost by (1-0) away against the Sheriff, after in the previous match, having lost by (3-0) away with FC Copenhagen. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 1 win, 6 draws and 8 losses in away matches; against 7 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses at their stadium. In the last match that they disputed, for the Czech League, they tied with Zbrojovka Brno away by (1-1). In the last 10 home matches Zlín has won 4, tied 4 and lost 2.
For this competition, they have not won any of the last 5 games. The team has conceded goals in 4 of the last 5 matches, so it has not presented great defensive solidity, and their attack needs to improve, as they have not scored goals in 4 of the last 5 matches for this competition.

In the last 9 away matches for all competitions there are 2 periods that stand out: they have scored 5 of their 11 goals between minutes (76′-90 ‘); He suffered 4 of his 10 goals between the minutes (16’-30 ‘).
The Zlín makes in this exhibition his farewell to this edition of the Europa League, since it occupies the last position of Group F and has no more chance of qualifying for the next phase of the competition, being one of the seven clubs that have not yet managed to win. The local club does not live a good phase, having won only one victory in the last seven games. Even in the Czech championship the team is not getting a good performance, since it occupies only the ninth position among sixteen clubs, leaving much to be desired in offensive terms. This is repeated in the continental tournament, as it has the worst attack of Group F, with only one goal scored, and also the worst defense. The local coach often alternates the tactical scheme of the team, but must keep Mehanovič in the starting lineup.
The away team is currently in the 2 nd position, with 8 points won, after 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss. In the penultimate match, they lost at home in front of the Sheriff, by (1-2). In the last match, they won in a home match against FC Copenhague, by (2-1). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 7 draws and 1 loss in away matches; against 10 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses at their stadium. The team comes to this match after a home victory over Rubin Kazan by (1-0). In the last 10 away matches for all competitions, Lokomotiv Moscow has won 5, tied 3 and lost 2. Their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 4 of the last 5 matches for this competition. This is a team that does not usually feel difficult to open the scoring: it marked the first goal in 12 of the last 15 games, of these 12 it reached the break in advantage in 4 and managed to maintain the advantage until the end of the 90 ‘in 9 There is 1 highlight period in the last 20 away matches for all competitions: he scored 11 of his 30 goals between the minutes (76’-90 ‘).
The Lokomotiv Moscow enters the field needing the victory to guarantee its place in the next phase of the Europa League, since the tie is not enough, being able, in that case, to be reached by the Kobenhavn. The club lives a great phase and is motivated by four consecutive victories, three for the Russian championship. The last of them happened at home, in a very balanced game against Rubin Kazan, and showed a very well balanced team defensively, reaching the winning goal in the final minutes. The team now occupies the isolated leadership of the Russian championship, in which it also has the second best defense. However, whoever is winning in the continental tournament is the offensive sector, the best of Group F. The coach has been using countless tactical formations and will probably present Fernandes in the starting lineup.
