Description: DYM Vs ZEN Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Unstoppable Zenit fast taking on shape as this season’s outright favourites as well.
No one came close to them in the 2019-20 edition of the Russian Premier League and its increasingly looking like the 2020-21 season is going to transpire in the same manner. Sitting atop of the points tally, Zenit are fast making a spot which has been their home for so long now their nest once again.
Where everyone has seen their winning spree be hampered in some way or the other, Zenit remain the only side in the showpiece league with a 100% winning record to their name. With four wins out of four, the side has shown why every season it has been handed over the moniker of overwhelming favourites.
Its not just the results which make Zenit such a juggernaut since the early exchanges of the new season but more so the manner in which they have come about. The side has ripped into teams, blowing them apart with the 4-1 schooling of Tambov the last time around paying a testament to the pulsating brand of attacking football they are endowed with.
DYM Vs ZEN Dream11 Probable Winner
Dynamo Moscow will become the latest side to encounter Zenit’s emphatic brand of football. Defeated for the first time the last time around after being dismissed in a surprising 2-0 result against Arsenal Tula, Dynamo Moscow for the first time showed chinks in their backline.
With their fortress now breached, Zenit will be quick to pounce upon a hurting Dynamo Moscow side. This will be yet another win for the visiting team, one which sees them further nail down on top spot.

Dream 11 Picks
Anton Shunin from Dynamo Moscow will be inducted into our side as the goal-keeper. He might have been hit for two the last time around but this is the same-goal-keeper who was integral to the side’s three cleansheets in a row.
He’s a truly astute goal-keeper, a name capable of occulting a string of shots to see him line up for us today.
Zenit’s attack has been hailed and lauded but it wouldn’t have been the force it is today if it wasn’t for the side’s defenders. This is a team which has let in a measly two goals in four encounters, a period which has also seen the side accrue the two cleansheets.
And another one could well be coming their way today given the side’s ability to render its opponent as mere onlookers. It’s a discourse which sees us opt for a trio of picks from the visiting team in this ambit.
We begin with CB, Dejan Lovren from the side. The new signing has already scored his first goal for the side, one which sees him become the first pick to grace the land of our team from Zenit.
Accompanying him is rightback Vyacheslav Karavaev who has the one assist with Douglas Santos completing our set of picks for the day’s showdown.
The only way Dynamo Moscow will have of coming out unscathed today is if they can put in a real shift when it comes to defence. The club has three cleansheets in four fixtures, a defence which has proved its merit in the early exchanges of the league.
And someone who has seen the side emerge as such a staunch backline is Daniil Fomin. His acumen when it comes to embedding the tackles and blocks has served the side well and seen it thrive as a defensive juggernaut.
Giving him company is Sebastian Szymanski. He’s been the only assist provider with him creating 3 of the side’ four goals in the league to make him a must have pick for us.
Zenit on the other hand will be represented by a one-two of picks. It’s one comprising of the enigmatic and electric Wilmar Barrios and Sebastian Driussi, names who have douses side’s with their attacking expertise.
Despite being part of a side that has 12 goals in four matches, Sardar Azmoun has still managed to stand tall amongst his counterparts. Not only Zenit’s with the league’s leading scorer with four goals, the striker has been a formidable name to defend against.
Artem Dzyuba becomes the second pick from the side given the one goal and one assist he has while the one goal for him sees Nikolai Komlichenko make a way into our team from the home setup.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His behemoth four goals in four matches make Sardar our team’s captain while Dzyuba is the vice-captain.
