The Russian Super Cup is scheduled for the 14th of July and it is going to be a match to be played by the Russian League Champions (Spartak Moscow) and the Russian Cup Champions (Lokomotiv Moscow).
First of all, worthy of note is the fact that this is a derby where anyone can win. But Spartak Moscow has made a landmark in Russia such that they don’t lose not just at home but they don’t lose also in derbies.
Without doubt, Spartak is going to win the cup due to certain reasons. First is the fact that the coach, Massimo Carrera has passed on the Italian mentality onto the players which make them incredibly lethal in not just attack but defence. Another fact is that Spartak has never lost to Lokomotiv in their last three meetings since Carrera arrived(1-1, 1-0, 2-1) and the games have always be tough.
Lokomotiv on the hand will be playing in their own stadium and will have a point to prove and besides that, the club has been in good form recently winning a game 10-0. We expect a lot of drama from this cup.
Bienas Sports got the following predictions.
- Both teams to score (Yes)- 1.85
- Spartak Moscow (O 1.5)- 2.12
