Bayern Munich look to stay hot in the Champions League when the Bavarians headed to Russia to take on Lokomotiv Moscow on Matchday 2 this Tuesday. Bayern are in first place in Group A after crushing Atletico Madrid 4-0 last week, while Lokomotiv are tied for second following a decent 2-2 draw against Red Bull Salzburg. A win here would put the German side clearly in the driver’s seat to win the group.

Storylines

Lokomotiv: A fortunate point against Salzburg, that was a match where they were outshot 15-5. They didn’t have much of the ball, were too slow and predictable in attack yet but away two of their three shots on goal. Against Bayern, they have to try and play on the counter to have chance of taking a point. 

Bayern: This team was just lethal against Atleti, shutting down a good attack and making an elite defense look silly. So, in theory, they should have no trouble dominating against an inferior opponent. But, heading to Russia to play is never easy. Though Lokomotiv have had their issues early on this season, they are still formidable. Expect it to be close for the first bit before Bayern take over.

Prediction

Hansi Flick’s crew picks up right where they left off with complete domination. Pick: Bayern 3, Lokomotiv 0
