Dinamo Moscow vs Rubin Kazan
Russia – Premier League
Date: Monday, 30 April 2018
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK
Venue: Arena Khimki (Khimki)
Dinamo Moscow host Rubin Kazan amid a rather underwhelming campaign and just points above the Premier League danger zone, where Amkar Perm look to escape the relegation play-offs spots. They have ended a two-game losing streak – after being beaten by Lokomotiv and Zenit – with a narrow 0-1 win over the rock-bottomed SKA Khabarovsk but will this be enough of a confidence booster?
Rubin Kazan sit in the midtable and just two points above the rivals, travelling to Arena Khimki on the back of a somewhat more consistent spell of form. They’ve bagged two wins and two draws in their last four outings, including a 1-1 draw against Rostov in what shapes to be a thriller battle for top-flight survival late in the campaign.
Belo-golubye now hope to capitalize on such an unconvincing display behind the visitors and connect two important wins in a row. They have struggled to regularly score goals in front of the home crowd, though, and this could be more worrying as duo up front Panchenko – Lutsenko haven’t found the net in almost two months!
Dinamo Moscow vs Rubin Kazan: Head-to-head
Dinamo haven’t beaten Rubin since December 2012, with just three wins in 28 head-to-head clashes overall.
We’ve seen two wins for Rubin and five draws in their last seven matchups.
The sides shared the spoils in a goalless draw at Kazan’ Arena earlier this term.
Dinamo Moscow vs Rubin Kazan: Prediction
With both sides failing to impress recently, we do feel such displays will continue on the day and with that in mind – together with five draws in seven games between the sides – going for a Draw at 19/10 does seem like the best way to approach the market.
Underwhelming displays in the attacking third have been a major problem on both ends and managers have struggled to find cure for such a dry spell of form. Under 2.5 goals has thus attracted many value seekers too and we’ll now back it even at 1/2.
