Dynamo Moscow Preview – Will they avoid a third successive defeat?

A full season’s work undone over 90 minutes in Georgia. After a sixth place finish in last season’s Russian Premier League earned them a spot in European competition for the first time in more than five years, to then fall at the first hurdle – and to vastly inferior opposition as well – has to be galling for the club. Their brief 2020-21 Europa League campaign ending on Thursday with a 2-1 defeat away to Locomotiv Tbilisi.

Dynamo Moscow were around 1/3 odds to progress but found themselves 2-0 down before a penalty in stoppage time rather belatedly halved the arrears. A bitterly disappointing outcome, and one which could have a demoralising affect on a group which has lacked any sort of consistency so far this term. The White-Blues sit sixth in their domestic league with three wins from the opening seven encounters (W3 D2 L2).

The one relatively consistent theme thus far has been goals, or a lack thereof. Their league games until now averaging a miserly 1.43 goals per game, having both scored (0.86) and conceded (0.57) at less than a goal per game. The latest such encounter seen them lose 1-0 at home to Rubin Kazan, in what was a minor upset, blemishing an otherwise solid record (W2 D1 L1) when playing at their VTB Arena.

Akhmat Grozny Preview – Playing away suits Monday’s underdogs?

Struggling to win even a quarter of their allotted league fixtures almost cost this club their place in the top tier during last season’s Premier League campaign. So it must be of some relief to already have three wins on the board after only seven games. Akhmat Grozny may therefore sense an opportunity to add a fourth here, going up against downtrodden opposition against whom their record for avoiding defeat merits attention.

Just the one defeat in nine previous Premier League meetings with Dynamo Moscow is a statistic the players will be made well aware of ahead of kick-off. Meaning little likelihood of this team feeling overawed in Moscow, where they have avoided losing on each of their past four league visits versus said opposition (W1 D3). A positive omen, especially when coupled with their exploits on the road last term.

Last season, Akhmat Grozny were at their most productive away from the Akhmat Arena, securing five out of seven victories on the road. Their efforts away from home (W5 D2 L8) only ranked them 13th out of all 16 teams but does highlight a very clear preference, as has already been in evidence so far with two of their three victories coming in away outings. In particular, an admirable 3-2 success at 2019-20 runners-up Lokomotiv Moscow.
