On October 20, the match of the third round of the Europa League group stage will take place, in which Russian Spartak will play at home with English Leicester. The forecast for this match is given by journalist and football scout Artur Petrosyan.

Brendan Rodgers came to Russia three times, coaching Liverpool and Celtic, and each time he returned home with a heavy slurp, losing matches to our teams – Anzhi and Zenit twice. But every series ends sooner or later. Artur Petrosyan believes that with a high degree of probability Rogers will not be defeated after this match.

Last weekend, Leicester gave out a masterpiece match in the English Premier League, beating Manchester United (4-2) on their field, and it was a strong-willed victory – the Foxes were inferior during the meeting. Leicester did a lot of things, and most importantly, their character returned to them. As a rule, after such victories, they become more successful in the next few weeks. This may be just the case.

If Leicester had everything in order in the Europa League standings right now, then perhaps Brendan Rodgers would have put up understudies for this match, but this is not the case now. The English team has only 1 point after two rounds, and the foxes need to leave the group in order to continue fighting for the trophy, and, accordingly, for a ticket to the Champions League. Through the Premier League, with current competitors, Leicester is unlikely to be able to get into the most prestigious European Cup tournament.

Spartak also managed to show character this weekend, but inclusion in the derby with Dynamo (2-2) was only for the last ten minutes, and Rui Vitoria's team managed to save only a draw, thanks to the efforts of their central defenders. In general, the "red and white" showed a mediocre game – nothing worked out in the creation, again there will be no Promesa from which the sharpness could come.

Artur Petrosyan is practically convinced that Leicester will be able to win in Moscow. He offers an even more accurate bet in the form of a non-loss of the British with a larger total.
