Soccer Monday: Miller looks at the Russia Premier League and picks Lokomotiv Moscow vs. Rubin Kazan

Monday is the calm before the UEFA storm, with 40-plus matches Tuesday through Thursday to chose from across the continent.

Today, there are some matches scattered about everywhere, but I will focus in on one in Russia.

Lokomotiv Moscow comes into the new season with a trophy already, after it knocked off Zenit 3-2 last weekend in the Super Cup. The win came after Lokomotiv won the Russian Cup to end last season.

Now, Lokomotiv is a favorite to beat Rubin Kazan in the two teams' Premier League opener. Lokomotiv went 3-0-1 last season against its opponent Monday, including three in a row. Expect that trend to continue.
