Analysis and forecast for the match on matchday 8 of the Russian Championship “Lokomotiv” – “Orenburg” (09/17/2023)
After a brief break due to national team matches, we returned to the national level. On September 17, three matches will be played on matchday 8 of the Russian Premier League. In the last of them, Lokomotiv and Orenburg will face each other at the RZD Arena stadium in Moscow. The kick-off is scheduled for 19:00 Moscow time.
All hope is placed on Kuzyaev:
“Lyon” – “Le Havre”. Daler Kuzyaev becomes leader
Lokomotiv is in sixth place in the RPL standings. The difference with Zenit, second placed, is two points. The Railwaymen also occupy second place in the Russian Cup group. They have the same number of points as the leader Rostov, but their additional indicators are slightly worse.
In 10 matches, Mikhail Galaktionov’s team only lost to CSKA (1-4) in the RPL and Rostov (1-2) in the Russian Cup. Furthermore, in both cases they acted on the road. The red-greens also tied with Rubin (2-2), Krylia Sovetov (1-1) and the leader Krasnodar (1-1).
The results are surprising, because in most of these matches the railroaders played worse than their opponents. They looked good only in sections. Despite this, in addition to the disqualification of Artyom Dzyuba from two RPL matches for threats to a journalist, the Club scored the most important points. In some cases he was lucky. In others, the team demonstrated character and willpower.
By the way, Dzyuba made an impressive return to the team. The suspension had a positive effect on his mood. In the last two games of the Russian championship he helped the red and green team beat Sochi (1-0) and Baltika (3-2). In the meeting with the Sochi team, the forward scored an assist, and in the game with the Kaliningrad team he scored a goal and gave an assist.
Will a change of coach help Fakel?
“Ural” – “False”. Isn’t Tashuev better than Evseev?
Orenburg, in turn, takes 14th place in the Russian Championship standings. In seven games they only beat Sochi in their stadium, which was going through an equally terrible crisis (3-0). The blue and white drew with Rubin (1-1) and CSKA (1-1).
It is impossible not to notice that the change of coach had a positive effect on Orenburg. He scored points in the match against CSKA and in the victory over Sochi under the direction of David Deogracia. Furthermore, the Spanish coach’s new players beat Fakel (1-0) in the Russian Cup.
At the end of the transfer period, the Orenburg team became quite stronger. They signed Emircan Gurluk, Tomas Muro, Justin Cuero and Arsen Adamov. In addition, Zenit acquired promising 20-year-old midfielder Yaroslav Mikhailov from Paris NN and loaned him to Orenburg for one season.
No one knows how quickly the newcomers will adapt to the new club and how long it will take Deograsia to debug the playing mechanisms of the Orenburg team. Improving results doesn’t mean much. “Citizens” still have a series of unresolved problems.
In a meeting with the more tenacious and inflexible Lokomotiv, it is unlikely that the Deograsia team will be able to score points. What makes their task even more complicated is that the match will be played at the Russian Railways Arena. You can bet on the victory of the railway workers in bookmakers with an odds of 1.85.
Six of the last seven direct confrontations were marked by this result. In the other, the Orenburg team won 1-0 at their stadium. In the last 18 RPL games away from home, they have only won four times. There were also two ties. During this period, the team scored 24 goals and conceded 44.
In the last nine matches of the Russian Championship at the Russian Railways Arena, the railways only lost to Zenit (1:2) and drew twice. They have a good chance of winning the next game, despite the departure of Wilson Isidore.
How is Messi doing?
Atlanta-Inter Miami. Messi’s zeal is commendable, but he needs to rest
The Frenchman was one of the standout players for the red-green team last season. He most recently moved on loan to Zenit, which surprised many. However, this season the forward only participated in four partial RPL matches. The railroaders managed very well without him.
Izidor’s direct competitor in position, Dzyuba, gradually began to regain his form, as evidenced by his performance in the last two rounds of the Russian Championship. After the international break, the RPL’s top scorer will probably score again.
Prediction and bets for the match RPL Lokomotiv – Orenburg September 17, 2023
Both teams have some problems with the football pattern. The break for national team matches will surely be good for them. At the same time, I believe more in Lokomotiv’s victory. First of all, the history of recent head-to-head confrontations is completely on their side. Secondly, the railways have a big advantage because the match will be played at the Russian Railways Arena. Orenburg often loses along the way.
Tender: Lokomotiv victory with a odds of 1.85.
