Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Spartak Moscow play host to Leicester City at their Otkrytiye Arena in what is expected to be a very exciting Europa League game. Spartak quickly bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Legia, with the team outplaying Napoli in their second group game. The Armeitsy aim to climb to top position in Group C, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the Foxes. All Maslov, Melkadze, Ponce, Promes, and Umyarov are sidelined with injuries for the home team.
Leicester City, on the other hand, aim to build on the Premier League win (4-2) over Manchester United. The Foxes are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, and given Spartak’s attacking performance in the win in Naples, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Jonny Evans has overcome his injury, but all Fofana, Justin, and Ndidi remain in the recovery room.
