Dinamo Moscow vs Rubin Kazan
Russia – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 21 July 2019
Kick-off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: VTB Arena (Moscow).
The home team were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw in their opening fixture on the road against Arsenal Tula.
The squad took the lead early on through Cardoso in the first quarter of the game. However, they cracked under the opposition pressure in the second half and conceded the leveler six minutes before the end of regulation time.
Both the sides made the same number of attempts at goal, but despite the hosts being far more accurate, four times more to be exact, they could not net a decisive winner.
The visitors were in for a similar scoreline in their previous clash against the giants Lokomotiv Moscow, which finished 1-1 at the end of the final whistle. Their foes took the lead early on and threatened to extend their advantage throughout the game.
However, the away side kept their cool and staged a comeback through Kvaratskhelia who scored ten minutes after coming on to the pitch.
With both the sides having just one point under the belt, expect them to go all out this weekend as they seek to grab their first win of the campaign.

Dinamo Moscow vs Rubin Kazan Prediction
The visitors are likely to succumb to their first defeat of the season when they travel to the VTB Arena on Sunday.
The hosts let the game slip from under their nose in their last trip on the road, and are likely to exhibit a much better performance on home soil.
Although the visitors did hold the mighty Lokomotiv Moscow in their last game away from home, the team have not fared well at this particular venue where they have failed to pick up a win in their last three trips.
Both the sides found the back of the net in their recent games. So expect goals down both ends of the pitch, while the favorites to come out on top in this one are the hosts.
