Leicester City and Spartak Moscow face off on Thursday in a UEFA Europa League group league showdown at the King Power Stadium.
When these two teams faced off on October 20th it was Leicester City that came away with the 4-3 victory. Leicester City fell behind in that game, but it was Patson Daka who was the star scoring four goals, Leicester City did have 20 shots in that game and six went on goal. Spartak Moscow can’t be happy with the loss and Leicester City isn’t happy with how the defense played.
Leicester City currently sits in 3rd place in the Group C standings having picked up four points. Leicester City’s biggest issue has been with their inconsistency. It seems just when they look to be turning the corner they take two steps back. In the last game against Arsenal, the offense couldn’t get anything going, and that led to the 2-0 defeat. Before that game, Leicester City had won three games in a row. Leicester City knows how to score against Spartak Moscow, and they are going to need the offense to be good again in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is Spartak Moscow who sits in 4th place in the standings having picked up three points. Since that loss against Leicester City, they have had a loss and played to a draw. Two games ago against Zenit, the defense struggled again giving up seven goals. In the last game against FC Rostov, it looked like they might come away with the victory, but they gave up a goal in the 95th minute and that led to a draw. The biggest issue for this team has been the defense, and they need the defense to be better in this game.
These are both offenses that can score, and there won’t be a whole lot of defense played by either team in this game. Look for both teams to score two goals and the over is going to cash. Take the over 3.5 at +135.
