ROS vs ZEN Dream11 Prediction: CSKA Moscow welcome Lokomotiv Moscow at the VEB Arena in the Russian Premier League on Saturday, with both sides starting off their campaigns with wins. CSKA Moscow faced Ufa in their first game of the season. Lokomotiv Moscow also had a strong start to their campaign. Marko Nikolic’s side beat Arsenal Tula 3-1 in their opening fixture.
Rostov’s opening day 2-0 defeat at home to Dinamo Moscow hasn’t been a good indication of whether or not they can stay in touch with the top three or four this season. They come up against the champions Zenit Saint-Petersburg side that are looking to defend their title and began well with a comfortable 3-1 defeat away to Khimki despite going 1-0 down in the first-half. This should be a fairly comfortable away win.
