Arsenal Tula vs Dinamo Moscow
Russian Premier League
Date: Friday, 12 July 2019
Kick off at 18:00 UK / 19:00 CET
Venue: Stadion Arsenal (Tula).
With the Russian Premier League getting underway this week, the pressure will be on both the opening teams, as they hope to kick start their campaign with a positive result.
The sides met each other in the final game of the previous season and will be looking to pick up from they had left off. They shared the spoils in that game after they scored three goals apiece, with Arsenal Tula netting the final equalizer six minutes before the end of regulation time.
The hosts finished sixth in the league with forty-six points while their foes narrowly made it past the relegation zone as they were left on twelfth in the table with thirty-three points. Both the teams have been faring well in their recent friendlies building up to the tie and will be eying nothing but the win once the ball gets rolling.

Arsenal Tula vs Dinamo Moscow Prediction
The hosts are likely to take the win and the first three points of the season when they welcome the visitors to their midst this week.
The team were impressive on home soil last season and succumbed to defeat on not more than two occasions. They also found the back of the twenty-seven times and conceded less than half of that number.
The visitors were poor on the road and have just six wins in the thirty matches that they played. The squad did net twenty-eight goals, but they failed to keep their opponents at bay inside their own defensive third and conceded as many goals as they scored.
Although this is the start of a new season, we can certainly expect the odds to be in favor of the host to take the win given the home advantage that they have under their belt. The chances of the clash to be a high scoring one can also be ruled out.
