In the 3rd round of the LE group round, Spartak Moscow will play a match against Leicester. The game will take place on October 20 in Moscow and will be held at the Otkritie Arena. It will kick off at 17:30 Moscow time.
If successful, the Muscovites will increase their chances of qualifying from the group. At the same time, Leicester must also maximize its success in the upcoming game. Taking these circumstances into account, we will now try to make a prediction for the Spartak Moscow vs Leicester match, which may be useful when choosing a bet.
The Red-Whites are performing well in the current Europa League group stage. Despite the 0-1 defeat in the game against Legia in the first round, Spartak managed to create a sensation in the second round, beating the Italian Napoli 3-2 away. In such a scenario, Rui Vitoria’s charges, ahead of the game with the British, have 3 points and second place in the standings. In the 11th round of the RPL championship, the Spartak vs Dynamo Moscow match ended in a 2-2 draw.
Unexpectedly, the wards of Brendan Rogers were among the outsiders of the Europa League group round. After a good start — a 2-2 draw in the first round match with Napoli — the Foxes unexpectedly lost 0-1 to the Polish Legia in the second round. As a result, Leicester has 1 point gained before the upcoming game with Spartak and occupies last place in the table of Group C. Despite the setbacks in the UEL, Leicester plays much better in the championship. In the last round, the Foxes beat Manchester United 4-2.
The Spartak Moscow and Leicester teams have never met at the official level.
Despite the more successful statistics of Spartak, the chances of Rui Vitoria’s team winning are not so great. Leicester still represents the English championship, so the team is clearly superior in class. So, in respect of the Spartak Moscow vs Leicester match, the victory of the guests is our prediction.
Probable result – the victory of Leicester.
