Match: Dynamo Moscow – Rubin Kazan
Date: Monday, 21 September, 2015
Start time: 17:00 GMT
Dynamo Moscow host Rubin Kazan in a meeting of the 9th round of the Russian “Premier League”. The game is the last from program of the circle and will be held on Monday at 17:00 GMT at the stadium “Arena Khimki” in the Moscow suburb Khimki.
Asset Dynamo after the first eight rounds of 3 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses, making a total of 12 points, which give them the 8th position in the standings. In the last round they conceded their worst defeat of the season away to Krasnodar 0:4. With improved result Muscovites had not lost since April last year when it gave way to Anzhi.
At home Dynamo played very strong and are unbeaten in the league since March this year, when losses from Zenit 0: 1. In their last two home games Muscovites recorded wins, beating Ural Ufa and by 1:0 and 2:0.
Rubin is experiencing a difficult period and is in the relegation zone after the first eight rounds. Blagoy Georgiev and company have only 8 points, having recorded only two wins this season. After the defeat of Mordovia at the beginning of the month senior coach Rinat Bilyaletdinov was released. Their success in the last round over one of the leaders Lokomotiv Moscow 3:1, however, was quite surprising and can raise the confidence of the team.
During the week, Rubin began his participation in the group stage of the Europa League. The team from Kazan slid 1:2 in his visit to the Swiss Sion. The team was led by Valeriy Chaly, who was one of the assistants of Bilyaletdinov.
Last season, Rubin beat Dynamo as a guest with 2:0. The team from Kazan against Dynamo are unbeaten in their last four meetings. Last Muscovites beat his opponent at the end of 2012 with 3:0 at home.
Rubin feels pretty difficulties in celebrating the away goal. In their last nine away games in the league team has only scored five goals. Dynamo did not among the most effective teams in the league and is fifth in goals scored. I expect Monday’s meeting between the two teams battle to offer more terrain than positions the two doors.
