Zenit look to continue their winning start to the new Russian Premier League season with an away clash against Dynamo Moscow. Four games in, the defending champions already hold a four-point lead over their closest title rivals – Spartak and Sochi.

They'll be expecting to prevail again here, against a Dynamo Moscow side that have beaten them just once in their last 12 H2H meetings. Can Kirill Novikov's side inflict Zenit's first league defeat since September last year? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Dynamo Moscow vs Zenit Betting Tips

Having missed out on Europa League qualification by four points last season, Dynamo Moscow would have been hurt on Saturday. After all, they lost 2-0 away to Arsenal Tula – a side that finished below them (8th, 38 pts) in last year's standings.

Beating Ural, a goalless draw with newcomers Rotor Volgograd and an impressive win against Rostov – who pipped them for the final UEL berth – were all undone. Are they destined for more frustration this term? Their toughest challenge of the campaign awaits here and judging by last week's display, the answer appears to be yes.

Clinton N'Jie, a £5m signing last summer, had to be replaced at half-time with an injury. Fellow winger Maximilian Philipp, an £18m acquisition from Borussia Dortmund twelve months ago, was worryingly poor before also being substituted.

Head coach Novikov has some tough decisions to make as they prepare to face Russia's top side – who are in-form. N'Jie is unlikely to feature, but does he persist with Philipp and creative midfielder Sebastian Szymanski?

Who can step into the breach and make an impact? It'll be difficult, facing a motivated Sardar Azmoun: two goals and an assist in their 4-1 win over Tambov on Saturday.

Dynamo Moscow vs Zenit Correct Score Predictions

After their aforementioned defeat last week, it's hard to see them prevailing here – even with home advantage.

Stranger things have happened, but I think Zenit will have too much quality and precision for a Dynamo side struggling for consistency against top opposition.
