As part of one of the matches of the 1st round of the Russian Football Championship, the players of Rostov and Dynamo Moscow will come face to face. On whose side will the victory be in the upcoming confrontation?
The team of the "yellow-blue" is currently a bold middle-class player of the Russian championship, as evidenced by the finish of the home team on the ninth line in the standings. Despite the not very positive result, Valery Karpin remained as head coach, and for sure his team will play with new colors in the new draw. Moreover, in the upcoming meeting, the southerners will play on their own field, and with their native fans they will try to achieve victory in the opening confrontation of the new season.
Dynamo Moscow started playing extremely productive football under the guidance of German coach Sandro Schwarz. Nevertheless, there are still a lot of mistakes in the game of "white-blue". Last season, the Muscovites finished on the seventh line, having failed in the end. It is unlikely that Dynamo can be given the laurels of the favorite of the upcoming confrontation, given the fact how difficult the meetings of the national championship against Rostov residents look for Dynamo.
Statistics and figures:
- Dynamo is a conditional favorite of the meeting;
- The Southerners have 3 defeats and 2 wins in 5 previous meetings;
- Dynamo have won only once in 5 games;
- The last face-to-face meeting of the opponents ended with a score of 4: 1 in favor of Rostov;
- The opponents did not play a draw in face-to-face meetings for 4 meetings;
- The opponents have won 2 victories in the last 5 meetings;
- Rostov won the last 2 matches against Dynamo.
The Rostov team plays very confidently against Dynamo in their native walls, and in rare cases is inferior to the Moscow opponent. Most likely, in this meeting, the southerners will not be able to lose on their own field, and, if they are lucky, they will get three tournament points at all.
