Dynamo Moscow vs Spartak by Stanioooo

What a start of the Russian Premier league.. 1st round and it's time for the big Moscow derby


There's no doubt Spartak Moscow were in amazing form during the last season and they won the league title. This one started excellent and Spartak won the Super cup against Loko Moscow with 2:1 in extra time. The expectation of the club will be to defend their title and what's better as a start than a win against their big rival Dynamo at Arena Khimki. There's no doubt Luiz Adriano and Quincy Promes are now the big stars in Spartak and they will be the main threat for Dynamo's defense.


Dynamo Moscow relegated for the first time in their club history in 2015/2016, but rewrote the history once again in the last season becoming the team with the quickest promotion back to the premier league. Dynamo finished 1st last year and maybe the ambitions of the club will be to finish in the places which give participation in EL or CL. They signed Wanderson from Krasnodar one month ago and he is the man to look in Dynamo's squad. They are in good shape before the start of the season if we look at their results in the friendly matches. Still there's a big difference between league match and a friendly one, so it's not very correct to make final statements because of these results.


The last six times these two teams have met on the pitch, Spartak have won all of them. Moreover, Spartak won the last 5 visits to Dynamo, so they enter in this game as favourites without a doubt. Spartak are in great form, with a lot of confidence, knowing they are the champions of Russia and with 1 trophy during the new season, while Dynamo sold a few of their big names like Zhirkov, Kokorin and much more after the relegation and now the players in their squad are not so impressive. I think only the forwards are popular using Wanderson, Fatos Beciraj, Pogrebnyak and Kiril Panchenko. I expect Dynamo to start with Panchenko and Wanderson, cause Pogrebnyak is injured.


I will go here with an away win. I played Spartak so many times last season and they didn't disappoint me. That's my 1st option, cause I think they are the better team in the start of the season and will win easy or hard. 2nd option here is Quincy Promes to score anytime if you find this option. In my opinion he's the man to watch tomorrow- scored 4 goals against Dynamo in their last two matches.pin

You're right, it's a derby match, but the things totally changed in the last two years.. Dynamo is newly promoted team and they spent one year playing at lower level with weaker teams, while Spartak upgrade more and more during the last season playing with the best teams in Russia and now they will try to defend their title. Dynamo's team is not the same as it was two years ago and now they will reckon mostly on their fans. They know the class of Spartak's squad is bigger and I think it'll a big challenge for them to face Spartak as a start of the new season.

Well, the odds started to drop in almost all of the bookies..Now they are 2.00 in betway which I chose for my tip and under 2.00 in most of the others


Well, I think the possibility for BTTS is good here, but I still prefer Spartak to win. The odds are higher and I really don't know what Dynamo will use here as a tactic- playing more defensively using counter-attacks or they will try to play more offensively.

What's your opinion of the match between Vorskla and Shakhtar today?
07/18/2017 - 12:38
Well, there's no doubt Shakhtar are the way much better team and they will win, but 1.30 has no value. You can make combo with one more match. I love playing such games like Vorskla-Shakhtar live, when they started the match and you can easily see if the big favourite wants to destroy the opponent or just goes for a routine win.

They won the Super cup against Dinamo 2:0 a few days ago, they won't play qual. CL matches, cause they are already in the groups as Ukrainian champions, so Shakhtar should concentrate on their league matches in these 2 months before the start of CL group stage and gain an advantage.

I can advise you to go with (-1AH) if you find it as an option, cause now it's not available in bet365 :))

Nice Preview stan but i think Spartak Moskva over 1,5 goals @ 2,1 is safer bet

good luck :)
