Key Stat: Spartak Moscow finished 12 points ahead of Rubin Kazan last season

Expert Verdict: Rubin Kazan are a solid unit but have been weakened by the recent departures of Jose Salomon Rondon and Yann M’Vila and may struggle to get their campaign off to a winning start. Spartak Moscow have plenty of goals in their side with Yura Movsisyan and Jurado and can force a draw at the Kazan Arena.

Recommendation: Draw

Key Stat: Ural won just three of their 15 home games last season

Expert Verdict: Ural were uninspiring at home last season - no team scored fewer goals on their own patch in the Russian Premier League - and the prices about them beating Mordovia Saransk makes no appeal. The visitors were promoted as impressive champions and look capable of beating a team who finished just three points above the relegation playoff places.

Recommendation: Mordovia Saransk

Key Stat: Zenit recorded nine away victories in the league last season, more than any other team

Expert Verdict: Zenit ended last season in great form to finish just a point behind champions CSKA and the ante-post title favourites can get off to the perfect start by beating newly-promoted Arsenal Tula. Andre Villas-Boas has added Ezequiel Garay to Zenit’s ranks and the team have looked in good heart in pre-season, so the away win looks value.

Recommendation: Zenit

Key Stat: CSKA won 13 of their 15 home games last season

Expert Verdict: Champions CSKA Moscow warmed up for their title defence with a 3-1 Super Cup victory over Rostov last weekend and it is difficult to look past them in their opening fixture. Torpedo Moscow were promoted via a playoff after finishing third in the second tier last season, but their away form was unspectacular and this looks a tough introduction.

Recommendation: CSKA Moscow

Key Stat: Dinamo Moscow’s matches averaged 3.03 goals per game last season

Expert Verdict: Dinamo Moscow were the second-highest scorers in the Russian top flight last season and Rostov’s games, especially on the road, were usually exciting too. The visitors found the net in seven of their last eight league games. Backing both teams to score looks the value.

Recommendation: Both teams to score

Key Stat: Kuban Krasnodar’s six Russian Premier home wins last season all came against the bottom six

Expert Verdict: Kuban should ruin Ufa's bow in the big time but a bet on a narrow home win looks best. Ufa's 3-1 promotion playoff second-leg defeat at Tom Tomsk was the first time they had conceded two goals for nine matches but they had already done the hard work by winning the first leg 5-1.

Recommendation: Kuban 2-1
