The attacking players from Ufa have had real problems scoring goals in their past 6 games, contributing the poor return of only 1. In those fixtures, Gorozhane have also seen the overall goal aggregate against them equal 8.
Coming into this clash, Ufa are without a win away from home in their last 4 matches in the league.

Team News: Dynamo Moscow
Dynamo Moscow manager Sandro Schwarz has a full complement, with no fitness concerns whatsoever before this clash owing to a completely injury-free group to pick from.
Team News: Ufa
With a completely healthy group available for selection, Ufa boss Rashid Rakhimov has zero fitness concerns to speak of before this clash.
Our thinking is that Ufa certainly have the ability to breach the defence of this Dynamo Moscow team, however it might not quite be as many as they will have scored against them.
We think that it’s going to be a 2-1 victory for Dynamo Moscow by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
