SPK vs DYM Dream11 : The derbies keep coming in the Russian Premier League with Spartak Moscow and Dynamo Moscow clashing heads against each other today
After last week’s derby between CSKA Moscow and Lokomotiv Moscow, the land of the Russian Premier League follows up with another one this week with Spartak Moscow and Dynamo Moscow set to clash heads today. And for both the sides, it’s not just the fact that this is a derby which is set to see them elevate their performance but the floundering position they find themselves occupying in the league standings.
For Spartak Moscow whose aspirations every season are to challenge for the league title, the last couple of results have not shaped up the way the side would have fathomed. Opening RPL 2019-20 with a win to their name, the side have failed to muster a win in their ensuing two matches, falling to a shambolic defeat against Tambov the last time around.
Elsewhere their opponents on the night, Dynamo Moscow finally managed to shrug off two winless matches on the bounce as they came up 2-0 winners against Ural to make massive strides in the league standings. It took them all the way to seventh place, a position they’ll like to further climb from as they take on a hurting Spartak Moscow outfit who’ll be yearning to get back to winning ways today.
In a match of such magnitude, current form, team strength and all other factors go right out of the window. The result squarely lies on which side s better able to soak up the expectations and show the much needed composure and resolve to hold fort and canter to the three points on the day,
And for us, it’s this script which should see Spartak Moscow emerge as the winners from this one. They have defeat Dynamo Moscow on 15 of the 29 occasions the two sides have met in previously, with the 7 wins going to Dynamo Moscow while the 7 have ended in a draw. They should up the ante in the imminent match and finally record their second win of the league and move above Dynamo Moscow in the league.

Dream 11 Picks
Goal-Keeper for SPK vs DYM Dream11
Despite Dynamo Moscow heading into this encounter having conceded just the two goals, a cleansheet today looks extremely unlikely. Spartak Moscow are blessed with some myriad names up the pitch, players who’ll be looking to become the patrons of their side’s win on the night.
And this sees us opt for the goal-keeper who is more likelier to come up with more vital saves and offers a better save percentage for us. And up till now it’s been Anton Shunin with us picking up the Dynamo Moscow man for this encounter.
Defenders for SPK vs DYM Dream11
When we got to crafting out our backline for this match, we decided to head in with just the 3 defenders, the bare minimum needed in a Dream 11 side with us keeping attacking contributions as the first thing on our mind when choosing players. And it’s exactly this narrative which sees us go ahead with Sergey Parshivlyuk from Dynamo Moscow with the right back having gotten an assist in the previous encounter.
From Spartak Moscow we have centreback Georgi Dzhikiya enter the fray of his side after his goal against Rostov helped salvage a draw for his side. We are pairing him up with leftback Ayrton Lucas for this match with the same factor weighing into his selection.
Midfielders for SPK vs DYM Dream11
Goals are going to come in this match at will with this extradonaire fixture set to see the attacking players come to the forefront and revel us with some dauntless performances. And helping the side unlock its true potential have been rightwinger Kirill Panchenko and CDM Artur Yusupov with both having rummaged their way to a goal till now.
Artur has particularly been extremely impressive for Dynamo Moscow, not only helping cover the backline but move forward with the ball as one, emerging as a key component of his side. Meanwhile from Spartak Moscow who are reeling under the departure of Fernando and Adriano, we are getting in Jano Ananidze, Fernando Martins and Reziuan Mirzov with these three bound to be extremely instrumental for the side as the look to fill in the gaping holes.
Strikers for SPK vs DYM Dream11
With Adriano gone, Spartak Moscow will turn to the services of Ezequiel Ponce to lead their attacking line and provide the goals which have dried up till now for the side. We also have the one player come in from Dynamo Moscow with us opting to bring in Ramil Sheydaev given his assist in the previous encounter.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Our captain has been chosen as Ponce for this match while Yusupov is picked out as the vice-captain.
