Arsenal Tula vs Dinamo Moscow
Russia – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 22 August 2020
Kick-off at 15:30 UK/ 16:30 CET
Venue: Stadion Arsenal.
The Loudspeakers have been one of the best teams this season in the league. They are already placed second in the table, below defending champions Zenit, and have a 100% unbeaten record this campaign.
In fact, they are the only team remaining yet to concede their first goal, and if not for their sole draw a week back, the team would have had a perfect winning record.
Meanwhile, the Gunsmiths have a 100% winless record as of now, and they are placed in the bottom-most tier of the table.
To quote a stat, if not for their goalless draw against Akhmat (a team that had barely avoided relegation in 2019-20), Sergei Podpaly’s men would have had a 100% losing record.
By the looks of things, Dinamo Moscow seem to have the upper hand this weekend.
Arsenal Tula vs Dinamo Moscow: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest clash had ended in a 0-1 win for the Gunsmiths.
- Six of the former nine overall match-ups had goals from both teams.
- The last meeting at this stadium had ended in a 1-1 draw.
- Only once have the guests kept a clean sheet at this venue.
Arsenal Tula vs Dinamo Moscow: Prediction
Podpaly’s men are winless in their last four match-ups, and they remained so in ten of their preceding thirteen fixtures. In the midst of this stretch, they had also gone through a five-game losing run.
At home, they have had a total of one win since December, and this sole win had come against one of the weakest teams in the competition, Tambov.
Moreover, the Gunsmiths are also placed deep in the relegation zone at the moment.
On the other hand, their counterparts have a 100% winning record this season, barring a sole draw. They are also yet to concede their first goal, and they also had won five of their last seven overall games.
And finally, on the road, they have lost just twice since October of 2019, and one of these losses had come against Zenit – the absolute best team in Russia.
Considering these observations, expect Dinamo Moscow to dominate proceedings this weekend.
