Dynamo Moscow vs Zenit
Russian Premier League
Date: Sunday, 21 October 2018
Kick-Off at 12:00 UK / 13:00 CET
Venue: Arena Khimki (Khimki).
Zenit regained the comfortable six-point gap at the very top of the Premier League standings by beating the second-placed Krasnodar 2-1 at home before the international break. The Lions showed the shocking 2-1 defeat at Anzhi was just a bad day as they won two on the bounce in two following games in all competitions conceding just one goal along the way.
Artem Dzyuba took his league tally to five when he broke the deadlock past a stern Krasnodar defense two weeks ago. Robert Mak doubled the lead, while the visitor only managed a late consolation goal from the spot through Pavel Mamaev.
The runaway leaders will have a nice chance to even extend the gap at the very top of the standing with a victory over the struggling Dynamo Moscow side in the first game of Sunday’s Premier League schedule.

Dynamo Moscow vs Zenit: Prediction
Dynamo Moscow are having hard tim3es in this term of the Premier League. They sit third from bottom after a series of three straight defeats in the competition. They could not score a single goal along the way and we can hardly see such a poor thread coming to an end here against table-toppers.
The most recent of failures came in the previous round when Dmitry Khokhlov’s troops fell to struggling Krylya Sovetov 1-0 away from home. The away win is a must-rake pick at the odds of 1.95 based on everything written above. You can also back the Lions to keep things quiet at the back at the odds of 2.20.
