Rotherham - Brentford
Rotherham showed a competitive face at home against Bournemouth and won one point. They entered in a result crisis with only one victory in the last 6 matches, of which they lost 4 times. Coach Warren has a lot of problems with absences, so today he can’t count on Jueke (15/1 suspended), Olosounde (6/0), Ogbene (3/0), Robertson (2/0), Sandlier (6/1) and Sean McDonald (9/0), and Wood (5/1) is uncertain. After a weak start, Brentford started in a recognizable rhythm without defeats in the last 7 matches, where they conceded only three goals. They tied two wins against Barnsley and QPR, so today they go with the imperative to continue a great series of results. Coach Frank has a great team, which has ambitions for direct promotion, so in one effective match, I expect to take the three points.
Lokomotiv Moscow - Salzburg
Lokomotiv Moscow due to the excellently organized defense and in front of the goalkeeper Guillermo, who had phenomenal games against Atletico Madrid, managed to draw two draws in Spain and at home. They have a chance to reach second place in the table with a possible victory tonight against the Austrians. In the championship, they played without goals against Akhmat Grozny and were -7 points behind the top. Coach Nikolić stated that his team needs concentration and support from the stands. Today, important midfielders Krychowiak (13/2) and Kulikova (13/0) are unavailable due to positive tests on Covid 19, Barinov (4/1) and Smolov (12/3) are injured, and Miranchuk is in question. Salzburg is trampling all in front of them in Austria, but they only have one point in the Champions League, so this is their last chance to catch the last train in the fight for the Europa league place. Coach Jesse Mars has an important absence like Bernede, midfielder Bernad and useful wing Okafor, while Dhaka’s top scorer is not ready for 90 minutes. All in all, I expect a very hard game because the result is extremely important for both teams, and the time in Moscow during the game will be around -10 degrees and it may be an additional opportunity for the host to reach a favorable result.
