The other match being played in Group D on match day 6 concerns Schalke 04 taking on Russian club Lokomotiv Moscow at the VELTINS-Arena as the betting tips continue in the Champions League.

Schalke occupy second place in the group five points behind group winners Porto, but the hosts also hold an unassailable four point margin ahead of third placed Galatasaray as we prepare for the final matches of the group stages.

Schalke’s place in the knockout rounds was confirmed after making an unbeaten start to the campaign with draws against Porto and Galatasaray along with wins over tonight’s opponents, Lokomotiv Moscow (away) and a 2-0 home win over Galatasaray.

The hosts have produced mixed results at home in the Champions League as they’ve won 3 lost 4 and drawn 2 in their last 9 on home turf, but they should account for Lokomotiv Moscow here tonight.

Onto the visitors, Lokomotiv Moscow then, and it’s been a wretched campaign for the Russian club as they lost their first four group matches with defeats to Galatasaray and Schalke along with home and away losses to group winners, Porto.

Lokomotiv Moscow were spared their blushes with a 2-0 home win over Galatasaray on match day 5 which put paid to the Turkish club’s aspirations of a place in the knockout rounds, but an away match to the second placed German team looks to be a tough challenge for them here.

This looks an even taller order when you consider Lokomotiv Moscow’s results away from home in this competition; 12 matches without a win on their travels includes no fewer than 8 defeats, so they’ll have their work cut out in this one I fancy.

The betting tips suggest using the handicap on Schalke.
