Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Sevilla failed to impress in their opener against Liverpool and it has to be noted that they were more than fortunate not to suffer a loss to the Premier League side at Anfield (2-2). However, los Sevillanos were at their sharpest in their second group game against Maribor and they totally deserved to pick up all three points from the match. Eduardo Berizzo is doing a good job with the La Liga side and his men are seen as favourites to win Tuesday’s football match against Spartak Moscow. The Russian champions played out back-to-back draws with the likes of Maribor and Liverpool at the start of their Champions League campaign and, as a result, they have good chance of qualifying for the knockout stages. Spartak Moscow are likely to adopt a cautious approach in Tuesday’s clash against Sevilla and seeing that Eduardo Berizzo’s men are not regarded as good travelers, share of spoils appears on the horizon.
