Lokomotiv meet Anderlecht with history on their side

FC Lokomotiv Moskva go into their UEFA Europa League Group L match with RSC Anderlecht with history on their side having beaten the 30-time Belgium champions 5-1 last time they met.

FC Lokomotiv Moskva will look for a repeat of their last result against RSC Anderlecht as the sides meet again in UEFA Europa League Group L.

Previous meetings
• The clubs played in the 2001/02 UEFA Champions League group stage, with Aimé Antheunis' Anderlecht drawing 1-1 in Moscow before Yuri Semin's Lokomotiv won the return fixture 5-1.

• The sides for the 1-1 draw on 11 September 2001 were:
Lokomotiv: Nigmatullin, Drozdov, Lekcetho, Ignashevich, Chugainov, Izmailov, Maminov, Buznikin (Vučićević 66), Sennikov, Obradović, Pimenov (Janashia 75)
Anderlecht: De Wilde, Ilić, Vanderhaeghe, De Boeck, Hendrikx, Hasi, Crasson, Mornar (Van Hout 90), De Bilde (Stoica 77), Pirard, Dindane (Seol 88)

Match background
• In total, Lokomotiv have played six games against Belgian sides, with the record W3 D2 L1 (W2 D1 L0 at home, with Anderlecht the only side to deny them victory in Moscow).

• Anderlecht's eight games against Russian sides have ended W2 D1 L5 (W0 D1 L3 away, with that sole draw coming against Lokomotiv).

• Lokomotiv's record in four UEFA Cup and UEFA Europa League group stage home games is W1 D1 L2.

• Anderlecht's record in eight UEFA Cup and UEFA Europa League group stage away games is W2 D3 L3.

Team facts
• Anderlecht's 4-1 win against AEK Athens FC was their 150th victory in UEFA competition; this will be their 334th UEFA club game, making them by far the most experienced club in this season's UEFA Europa League.

• Three more goals will bring Anderlecht's UEFA Europa League/UEFA Cup tally to 200; this is their 116th outing in the two competitions.

• Matías Suárez’s hat-trick against AEK on matchday one makes him the top scorer in this season's group stage.

• Anderlecht's Serbian forward Milan Jovanović was at Lokomotiv from 2004 to 2006 but made just three substitute appearances in the league and did not score for the Railway Boys.

• Lokomotiv coach José Couceiro was in caretaker charge at Sporting Clube de Portugal for the latter part of the 2010/11 season before replacing Yuri Krasnozhan as Lokomotiv boss in July. Since coaching Portugal's Under-21s from 2006 to 2007, he has been in charge at FBK Kaunas, Lithuania and Gaziantepspor.

• Ariël Jacobs has been Anderlecht coach since November 2007. Once a striker, he spent most of his career with K. Diegem Sport. He later coached youth teams for the Royal Belgian Football Association (URBSFA-KBVB) and acted as assistant to national team boss Guy Thys before returning to club football with RWD Molenbeek, RAA Louviéroise, KSC Lokeren OV and R. Excelsior Mouscron.
