Lokomotiv Moscow play host to Schalke 04 at their RZD Arena on Wednesday evening. The Russian side experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Galatasaray, but a victory over Schalke 04 will surely see them regain a much-needed confidence. Lokomotiv Moscow are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in their first home game of the process and seeing that die Knappen made a very slow start to the new Bundesliga campaign, home win should be considered. Schalke 04 did well to share the spoils with Porto in their opener, but seeing that they have been struggling to find their form at the start of the new Bundesliga campaign, we do not believe that the visitors are capable of spoiling Lokomotiv’s party in the Russian capital. A man to watch in the home team will be Russian attacker Fjodor Smolov.
