Lokomotiv Moscow will be looking to return to winning ways when they play FC Ural on the road this weekend. Moscow had an absolute shocker last week when they went down 0-3 at home to Spartak Moskva. Ural meanwhile have collected four points from the last two games and will no doubt be looking to extend the unbeaten run.
Lokomotiv can only blame themselves for that uncanny result. Not only they passed up a golden opportunity to go top of the table, but the lack of composure in the final third, and indiscipline at the back has become a cause for concern for manager Yuri Semin.
FC Ufa are sitting on 11th position heading into this match with only three points separating them from the relegation zone. Still, the club hierarchy and the management will be more than satisfied with the way the club has played this season. The reason, Ufa have already accumulated more than half of the points tall of the last season.
The Russain Premier League match will be played between FC Ufa and Lokomotiv Moscow at Neftyanik Stadium, in Ufa Russia. The ground has a capacity of 15,132.
The game will start at 04:30 PM (IST), on Saturday, November 02.
