Leicester City vs Spartak Moscow Prediction: Europa League Match on 04.11.2021
The two pre-tournament favourites in the Europa League both have work to do if they are to finish in the top two in Group C. Leicester City have a huge match in the group on Thursday evening, as they welcome Spartak Moscow to the King Power Stadium.
Europa League Preview
Leicester City were seen by many as the best chance in the Europa League this season, but the Foxes have work to do if they are to make it out of Group C. At present, they will be heading into the Europa Conference League in 2022 as they sit in third.
The Foxes have won just one of the three games that they have played, while their defeat against Legia Warsaw on matchday two has given the Polish side a two-point advantage to defend at the top of the standings. Leicester at least got off the mark with a victory in their last match, as they overcame Spartak in a thrilling win on the road.
Patson Daka was the hero in the match, as he scored all four goals for the Foxes in an action-packed second half to see Leicester come back from 2-0 down to claim the win. It was nothing short of what Leicester deserved in that game, as they had 58% of the possession and registered 20 shots.
Spartak would have been disappointed by the way that they threw the game away, as they led 2-0 after goals from Alexandr Sobolev and Jordan Larsson in the first half.
They have picked up just three points from the games that they have played to this point, but they are by no means out of the race to qualify. Spartak come into this game in the East Midlands one point behind Leicester and three behind Legia at the top of the group.
Leicester City vs Spartak Moscow Head to Head
This will be the first time in Leicester’s history that they have hosted a club from Russia. The meeting between the Foxes and Spartak on the last matchday was the first time that Leicester have played Russian opposition in their history.
Leicester City vs Spartak Moscow Prediction
Leicester needed an inspired performance from Patson Daka in the previous game between the sides, and the striker could once again be an important figure this coming week. The Foxes should make home advantage count with a narrow victory.
