Spartak Moscow vs Liverpool

Liverpool haven’t necessary had it all their way so far this season with them managing to get their first victory in 5 games by beating Leicester City in the encounter on the weekend which needed a total team effort especially going forward. Liverpool have been extremely entertaining offensively and managed to find the back of the net in 8 out of 10 competitive games played by them this season. They have relied on the likes of Salah, Mane, Firmino, Coutinho and Can to get most of their goals this season; and a strong showing from them will be required in order for Liverpool to get into a winning position. Defensively, Liverpool are shambolic and haven’t strengthened in this area this season having now conceded in 8 out of their last 10 games including in 5 straight games.

Spartak Moscow haven’t had the best of started to the Russian Premier League currently sitting in 8th spot with just 3 wins from their 11 games. On a more positive trend, they have managed to remain undefeated in each of their last 6 games in all competitions, to give them some momentum heading into this encounter against an attacking Liverpool. Spartak managed a good 1-1 draw against Maribor away from home and now will look to their home comforts to try and help them out with a victory. The result against Maribor has been a catalyst for their attacking form, where they have now scored 2 goals in each of their last 3 games on the domestic front since then, with Adriano and Promes being the chief architects for their efforts. Defensively however, they have shown to have vulnerabilities where they have now leaked goals in 3 out of their last 4 games.
This game should see goals at both ends considering the struggles both teams are having defensively.
