Lokomotiv Moscow vs Schalke-Preview

 

  • With the Champions League 2018/19 (CL) in full swing, inconsistent Russian outfit Lokomotiv Moscow host a Schalke side who’ve just broken a five-game domestic losing streak (W1, L5).
  • A dramatic game with Galatasaray in their first group game resulted in a 3-0 away loss with Lokomotiv conceding three from open play. Last season, they progressed to the 1/8-finals of the Europa League (EL), bowing out to Atletico Madrid 8-1 on aggregate.
  • Form in the Russian Premier league has been erratic and Lokomotiv find themselves in sixth with a symmetrical record of: W3, D3, L3, GF10, GA10.
  • Meanwhile, Schalke drew 1-1 with Porto in their first game after goalkeeper Ralf Fahrmann saved a 13th-minute penalty. Off form domestically and sitting second-from-bottom, last year’s Europa League semi-finalists are showing signs of improvement but are experiencing a second slow start in as many Bundesliga seasons.
  • With no H2H meetings in their history, Schalke have the advantage of European experience with 98 wins from 195 European fixtures (D46, L51) while Lokomotiv have 46 wins (D24, L43).
  • Players to watch:

                         Manuel Fernandes (LOK) has two domestic goals so far, but scored six EL goals last season            – including a hat-trick in a 3-2 meeting with Nice in February 2018.

  • Schalke’s 21-year-old Swiss striker Breel Embolo scored in the draw with Porto – as well as claiming a recent domestic goal and assist.
  • Stat attack:

Lokomotiv are making their first appearance in the Champions League since 2004/05.

  • In their last respective CL meetings, Lokomotiv saw three yellow cards whilst Schalke saw two.
  • Their last three CL campaigns have seen Schalke drop-out at the last-16 stage.
  • Both teams have scored in three of Lokomotiv’s last five games – Schalke meanwhile have seen two games in that time end the same (in all competitions).
