Russian Premier League is going to be wrapped up with a derby clash between Spartak Moscow and Dinamo Moscow.

The defending champions failed to win back-to-back title mostly because of their two straight defeats against Ural and Akhmat. However, they are sitting on the 2nd spot being one point ahead of CSKA Moscow and that position secures the participation in the Champions League next season. Quincy Promes and the lads are the most productive side in the league and Spartak are also the best hosts in the competition.

Dinamo secured the survival after being promoted at the beginning of the season and they secured a mid-table finish. They haven’t been defeated in the last three matches and although they don’t feel any pressure in this one, the visitors want a good display against fierce rivals. Dmitry Khokhlov’s side is having some troubles in finding the back of the oppositions’ net however they improved their away displays in the past rounds.
