Leicester City will face Spartak Moscow at the King Power Stadium on Thursday in the UEFA Europa League group stage. Here is our expert guess on Leicester City vs Spartak Moscow football prediction for the Europa League match of the season.
Leicester City are coming off a 2-0 setback in the English Premier League to Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta’s side. On the other hand, Spartak Moscow played Rostov to a 1-1 draw in the Russian Premier League.
Four players have been ruled out for Leicester, with Ricardo Pereira and Ayoze Perez also uncertain.
Among the fringe players hoping to make an impact here are Patson Daka, Ademola Lookman, Harvey Barnes, Ryan Bertrand, and Jannik Vestergaard.
Maximiliano Caufriez is now available for the Russian side in this match however he was unavailable against Leicester in the reverse fixture.
Ahead of their midweek trip to England, Spartak Moscow has four injury concerns.
With a 2-0 defeat at home to Arsenal at the weekend Leicester’s four-game winning streak came to an end but they have struggled to get going all season.
In each of their past eight games, Leicester has conceded and they were fortunate to beat Spartak Moscow in the Europa League last time out after falling down 2-0.
Spartak Moscow is in freefall after giving up a 2-0 lead and falling 4-3 to Leicester. At the weekend they were held to a 1-1 draw with Rostov at the weekend after losing 7-1 to league rivals Zenit.
Neither side are in good form heading into Thursday’s game but the fact Leicester have made a real mess of all of their Europa League matches suggests another tricky game here.
