Rostov vs Dinamo Moscow Predictions

Both teams ended last season on a poor run of form to miss out on European qualification. A draw is tipped as they get the 2021/22 Russian Premier League season underway.

  • Rostov are winless in 5 of their last 7 matches (Russian Premier League).
  • Dinamo Moscow are winless in 5 of their last 7 matches (all competitions).
  • Dinamo Moscow are undefeated in 4 of their last 6 away matches (all competitions).

Head to Head

Over the last 13 clashes, there has been nothing to split Rostov and Dinamo with five wins each and three draws.

Last season, Dinamo won 2-0 at home before Rostov gained revenge with a 4-1 victory in the most recent fixture.

Rostov Form

Rostov ended last season in ninth place in the Russian Premier League. They lost five of the last seven matches to miss out on a spot in European qualification.

Coach Valeri Karpin was sent off in a final day 3-1 defeat at home to champions Krasnodar, which followed a 1-0 loss to Ural.

In preparation for the new season, Rostov have played eight friendlies. 

They have beaten Mura, Lokomotiv Moscow and Beitar Jeresalem, drawn with MOL Fehervar and lost to Dinamo Zagreb, Partizan, Kisvarda and Honved. 

Rostov Team News

Rostov will start the season without injured midfielder Mathias Normann and forward Alexander Dolgov.

On-loan Nikolay Komlichenko will also be unable to play against his parent club.

Rostov have brought in defenders Kirill Bozhenov and Ihor Kalinin and forward Ali Sowe. The former has been loaned back to Khimki for the season.

Dinamo Moscow Form

Dinamo signed off last season with a 3-2 win over rivals CSKA Moscow, but it was only enough for a seventh placed finish.

Sandro Schwarz starts his first full season in charge of Dinamo having taken over in October.

It was a stuttering finish to the campaign for Dinamo, who won just two of their last seven matches in all competitions.

Schwarz has put his side through eight pre-season friendlies with mixed fortunes.

Dinamo have won against Ceske Budejovice, AEL Limassol and Budafoki, drawn with Sparta Prague and lost to CFR Cluj, LASK, Jablonec and MTK Budapest.

Dinamo Moscow Team News

Injury has ruled forward Viacheslav Grulev out of the season opener.

Dinamo have brought in Uruguayan left-back Diego Laxalt from AC Milan.
