Lokomotiv Moscow vs Marseille Prediction

RZD Arena will host Thursday’s Europa League game between Lokomotiv Moscow and Olympique Marseille, the two teams who have never met before in European competitions. Lokomotiv have been producing fine displays in the new Russian Premier League campaign, and they have yet to suffer a loss in the national championship.

Guinea international Francois Kamano, who scored a brace in the 2-0 win over Krylya Sovetov, is pushing for a start, while Dmitri Barinov returns from a domestic ban. Both Ze Luis and Miranchuk, on the other hand, are likely to miss the game with injuries.

Marseille made a promising start to the new Ligue 1 season, but beating Lokomotiv in Moscow is easier said than done. The good news for the visitors is that experienced attacker Dimitri Payet returns from suspension. Arkadiusz Milik, though, remains in the recovery room.

There should be goals in this game; for both sides. Lokomotiv Moscow comfortably defeated the poor Krylya Sovetov in the Russian Premier League at the weekend. That was the first game of seven in the league that the home team haven’t had both teams score in their match and they now come up against a Marseille side coached by Bielsa-disciple Jorge Sampaoli.

Sampaoli’s style has been enthralling in the south of France since his arrival ahead of the back end of last season. They remain unbeaten in the league with 15 goals coming in their four games this season.

The meeting between Lokomotiv Moscow and Marseille on Thursday will be the first-ever meeting between the sides. Both sides will therefore be hoping to kick off their Europa League campaign with a victory. Both teams have performed well in their individual domestic leagues this campaign and will be hoping to carry that form onto the European stage.

Lokomotiv Moscow Team News

Lokomotiv's key creative asset Anton Miranchuk will be forced to miss this encounter owing to a tendon issue, while Ze Luis has been withdrawn from the hosts' competitive group due to injury.

Aleksandr Silyanov is also struggling with a muscular issue but is not on the squad list anyway, while Dmitri Barinov returns from a domestic ban and should earn a start in the middle. Kamano is sure to earn a recall to the first XI following his weekend heroics, with Maksim Petrov's spot most at risk for the visit of Marseille.

Marseille Team News

The visitors would welcome Payet back to the fold after his suspension was served at the weekend, but the attacker is nursing a thigh problem, while Alvaro Gonzalez is available despite serving a domestic ban for his involvement in the ugly scenes against Nice.

With Milik not expected to recover from a knee injury just yet, the stage is set for Dieng to impress once again, but Sampaoli's extensive options in the final third could see the Marseille boss tempted into a couple of changes.

Gerson and Konrad de la Fuente are among the new arrivals hoping to force their way back into the team, but deadline-day signing Amine Harit will not want to be dropped after claiming an assist on his debut against Monaco.
