As part of the Europa League group stage match, the players of Spartak Moscow and Leicester will come face to face. On whose side will the victory be in this confrontation?
Rui Vitoria can be forgiven for all the past failures for the sensation his team created in Naples. Spartak managed to defeat the local Napoli with a score of 3:2. But in the last round of their championship, the "red and white" almost lost. Only at the end of the meeting, the team of today's hosts saved the game with Dynamo (2:2). There is no doubt that the Spartacists were able to cheer up after the victory in Italy. And a strong-willed draw with the "blue and white" will definitely add self-confidence.
Leicester made an extremely unsuccessful start in the Europa League. Only one point scored at the end of two rounds is not the most rosy catch, which cannot be boasted. In the Premier League, Leicester does not look so bright, being on the 11th line after 8 rounds. In the last round of the English championship, the Foxes were able to really surprise their fans by defeating Manchester United with a confident advantage – 4:2. Vardy, who gained incredible football form, played solo in that meeting.
Statistics and figures:
- "Leicester" - the favorite of the meeting;
- Spartak has not lost for 4 matches;
- Leicester have a 2-match unbeaten streak;
- The rivals have not previously crossed paths in face-to-face meetings.
I think that the English team will be able to get three points in a duel with Spartak. The duel with Dynamo showed that the Red-whites are in bad shape, and their salvation in this case looks like a real miracle.
