Spartak Moscow vs Leicester City Predictions

  • Spartak Moscow have posted three wins and a draw from their last four games, including a 3-2 success in Naples on Matchday 2.
  • Leicester City have picked up just one point from their opening two Group C fixtures.
  • The Foxes have lost three of their six away starts in all competitions this term.

Repeat from Foxes doubtful

Leicester City produced their best performance of the season to beat Manchester United 4-2 at The King Power Stadium on Saturday, but there are reasons to believe that The Foxes may struggle when they square off against Spartak Moscow in Russia this Wednesday afternoon.

Brendan Rogers’ side are favourites for this clash and would probably prove too good for their opponents if able to replicate their weekend display against The Red Devils, though that’s a huge ‘if’ based on City’s away form and general inconsistency this season.

The Foxes have picked up just a single point from their opening two Group C matches, while they’ve lost three of their six away trips in all competitions this term, beating only Premier League bottom side Norwich City and Championship side Millwall (League Cup) on their travels.

Hosts a huge price at Otkrytiye Arena

The odds-on for a Leicester success in midweek looks ridiculously short as a result and that’s before we even factor in Spartak Moscow’s recent form.

Rui Vitoria’s men made a dismal start to their domestic campaign but have now climbed up to seventh after amassing seven points from their last three games. In this sphere, Spartak recovered from their 1-0 reverse against Legia Warsaw on Matchday 1 to shock Serie A leaders Napoli 3-2 in Italy last time out.

For reasons outlined, odds of around 3/1 for a home victory this Wednesday are simply too good to ignore. We’d imagine Spartak will go off shorter than this prior to kick-off, so punters are advised to get on at the current price.

In terms of our correct score prediction, this should still be a close affair and Leicester have netted in all but one of their last seven matches. On that basis, we fancy the Russians to land the spoils via a 2-1 score-line.
