Dynamo has been seriously renewed in recent months. The White-Blue had a tough start to the season, but already in August, they had a four-match winning streak in all tournaments, which proved their good form. Another thing is that since then, they have won only once: exactly a month ago, they broke the resistance of Rostov 2:1. Three more times, they shared points in the championship, and they lost to Spartak - 0:1. Such uneven results leave the team only sixth in the Premier League standings. They have collected five points in four games in the FONBET Cup of Russia, which is still good enough for second place in Group D, so their playoff chances are high.
In the FONBET Cup of Russia, Spartak has already managed the main task, guaranteeing itself first place in Group D. They have won four consecutive games with a combined score of 14:6 in the previous four meetings, giving them an early ticket to the playoffs. The team is doing much worse in the national championship. Most recently, the Red and Whites had a bad stretch when they scored only one point in four rounds, after which they beat Sochi and Dynamo 1:0 each. Still, last weekend, the capital club suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of Krylia Sovetov 0:4. Now they are only in fifth place in the standings.
Expert Betting Tips
Spartak has already secured first place in Group D, so there will be no tournament motivation for the Red and White in the upcoming battle. They lost to Krylia Sovetov 0:4 at the weekend, so they will undoubtedly try to rehabilitate themselves in the derby. However, desire alone won't be enough, and they've already suffered two consecutive defeats this season. The White Blues have a completely different situation. They need to keep second place in the quartet while they play very well, and in the last round of the championship, they could score a whole bunch of goals to Akhmat, but the realization let them down.
Of course, the upcoming confrontation should be rich in goals and emotions. In the first round cup match, Spartak sent four unanswered goals to Dynamo by the 25th minute, after which the team responded with one goal. We can expect something similar in terms of goal-scoring activity now. Marcel Licka is always looking to play attacking football, and the Red-Whites had 26 shots on goal in their previous seven away battles (3.71 per game on average).
