Locomotiv Moscow welcome Danish opponents FC Copenhagen to the Lokomotiv stadium in the Russian capital on Thursday. The hosts will be looking for a win that would help them dislodge their midweek rivals from the top of Europa League group F.
Lokomotiv currently occupy third position with five points, one behind joint leaders Copenhagen and Sheriff. The first leg in Denmark ended in a goalless draw. The hosts come into this match on the back of a 2-1 loss to Sheriffin the fourth round. Anton Miranchuk and Manuel Fernandes will be the players to watch for the home side.
Copenhagen will look to extend their lead at the top with a match to go, with the group still widely open. Four points separate the top and bottom teams with six points at stake. They ran out 3-0 winners over Ziln in the last round, with Benjamin Verbic scoring a brace. The striker will be their key player in this one too.
