A lot will be on the line for both teams on Saturday when Lokomotiv Sofia hosts cross-town rivals Akademik Sofia on Saturday with just five rounds to go in Bulgaria's A PFG.

American forward Jemal Johnson has yet to score since joining Lokomotiv in January but he has earned consistent playing time and is expected to start.

For Lokomotiv, they enter the game in fourth place in the A PFG. They trail CSKA Sofia by four points for third place and the final spot in European competition.

For Akademik, they currently sit in 12th place in the 16 team league and are only three points clear of relegation.

Lokomotiv will be without defender Ivaylo Dimitrov and midfielder Vladislav Romanov who are both out with injuries.

Akademik will be without defender Petar Kyumurdzhiev who is suspended.
