Leicester City will look to build on their stunning triumph against Manchester United when they will travel to Spartak Moscow for their Europa League Group C clash on Wednesday. From the first two matches, Brendan Rodgers’ side has only one point while their Russian opponents have one win and one loss in Group C. Here is our expert guess on Spartak Moscow vs Leicester City football prediction for the Europa League match of the season.
Nikolai Rasskazov is expected to start in defense after Maximiliano Caufriez was sent off in the 3-2 win over Napoli.
Quincy Promes and Ezequiel Ponce will be absent hence, Jordan Larsson may be paired with Aleksandr Sobolev in the attack.
Wesley Fofana, James Justin, and Wilfred Ndidi are ruled out from Leicester squad.
Jonny Evans was substituted during the weekend’s 4-2 triumph against Manchester United, and while Brendan Rodgers claims it was due to cramp, he may not be risked on Wednesday afternoon.
Spartak Moscow vs Leicester City Prediction
Spartak Moscow were held to a 2-2 tie by Dinamo over the weekend. Winning only three of its eight games Spartak has struggled at home.
Leicester won 4-2 over Manchester United, their second win in their past eight games. With their only victories coming against bottom-of-the-table Norwich and Championship side Millwal, the Foxes have struggled on the road this season.
Spartak Moscow will fancy their chances against Leicester, but their key forwards will be missing, therefore the points may be split.
In five of Leicester’s last six games, there have been fewer than 2.5 goals scored (Europa League).
Spartak Moscow possible starting lineup: Maksimenko; Dzhikiya, Gigot, Kutepov; Moses, Zobnin, Umyarov, Lucas; Larsson, Sobolev, Bakaev
Leicester City possible starting lineup: Schmeichel; Amartey, Soyuncu, Vestergaard; Pereira, Soumare, Tielemans, Castagne; Perez; Daka, Iheanacho
