Both Dinamo and Lokomotiv are going through great streaks at the moment, and have placed themselves at the top of the table. The two teams are scoring goals left and right, and have done so in h2h clashes as well. Likely, expect a high-scoring thriller this weekend.

Dinamo are currently in possession of the first position, and they have a 100% winning record, barring a single loss. Note that they had also scored the second-most number of goals in the competition as well.

On the same note, Lokomotiv too had scored the same number of goals, and only Zenit had outscored these two squads. Note that Lokomotiv are also one of the few teams to still maintain an unbeaten record in the Russian top flight.

As such, expect a goal-fest this weekend at the VTB Arena.
