Dynamo Moscow Handicap (0)

This winter, the “Wings of the Soviets” lost 2 of their leaders – Pinyaev and Glushenkov, who went either for promotion or to save Lokomotiv from relegation. The signing of Syczewa/Pisarski may partly compensate for their departure, but we, along with many other bloggers and pundits, are a little worried about the career future of one of RPL’s brightest strikers this season. After all, the example of Agalarov immediately comes to my mind, who shone in Ufa and is now polishing the bench in Akhmat. Ezhov, Chirkovich and Shitov missed Krylia’s last friendly match and it is not yet certain whether they will be able to take part in the match against Dynamo.

All Moscow leaders are in the ranks, rumors of Zakharyan’s move to Galatasaray have been repeatedly refuted, even looking towards the MLS or the not too distant Turkish coast, Smolov will apparently end this season as part of the “white and blue”. Of course, practice games during a training camp often give a slightly distorted picture of the team’s form, due to the fact that they are under pressure and often at different levels of these stresses. However, Dynamo left quite a good impression from friendly matches, we did not manage to notice any crisis phenomena in Jokanović’s team with the naked eye. Therefore, we are a bit surprised that bookmakers offer almost equal odds for the success of Krylia and Dynamo. It is unlikely that anyone would seriously doubt the superior skill of the Muscovites, besides, Jokanovic had enough time to interact with the defenders who arrived in the off-season, but Igor Osinkin once again lost several of his best players without receiving an equivalent replacement each position.
