Dinamo Moscow vs Krasnodar Prediction
Dinamo Moscow have flattered to deceive this season and will be facing off against a Krasodar side that have been among the form teams in the league this season.
The visitors are unbeaten in their last seven matches in all competitions and will be buoyed after securing qualification to the group stage of the Champions League.
Dinamo, on the other hand, got eliminated from the Europa League qualifiers two weeks ago and the extra rest afforded them could see them earn a draw in this fixture.
