Dinamo Moscow vs Ufa
Russian Premier League
Date: Monday, 20 August 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Arena Khimki.
Dinamo Moscow are going to host Ufa in the closing match of the Russian Premier League second round on Monday afternoon.
The hosts opened the season with three very tight clashes which ended with a draw. Dmitry Khokhlov’s side are pretty tight in the back, they just need to improve their attacking work in order to start climbing up the table. They finished last season at 8th place thanks to a very good finish when Dinamo Moscow picked up ten points in the last four rounds.
They have been involved in low scoring matches in last season as well as the crowd wasn’t able to see more than two goals per match in average. Although they have lost just three times at home ground last season, they were involved in too many draws.
Ufa had a pretty successful campaign as they managed to find their place in the top six and earn the place in the Europa League qualifiers. They managed to reach the playoffs in the continental competition qualifiers but they haven’t been too convincing.
They’ve opened the campaign in Premier League by winning four points from three matches which were very tight. Aleksandr Putsko and the lads conceded just once, while their forwards produced three goals.
Dinamo Moscow vs Ufa: Head-to-head
Ufa still haven’t celebrated a win against their opponents and after suffering four straight defeats, they managed to snatch to tie two draws. Their matches have been low scoring ones and the crowd was able to see more than two goals just once in their six encounters.
Dinamo Moscow vs Ufa: Prediction
This one is going to be another tight clash, however the hosts might be closer to the victory. Ufa had a mid-week trip to Luxembourg which Dinamo Moscow could take advantage of in order to win their first three points in the season.
Both sides are very disciplined in the back while their forwards don’t produce too many goals. As their head to head clashes are also pretty inefficient, this one should also remain under 2.5 margin.
