Spartak Moscow will host Leicester City for their Europa League Group C clash on Wednesday and Leicester will look to build on their stunning triumph against Manchester United. While Russian opponents have one win and one loss in Group C Brendan Rodgers’ side has only one point from their first two matches. Here is everything you need to know about Spartak Moscow vs Leicester City football prediction for the Europa League match of the season.

Team news

Spartak Moscow

Nikolai Rasskazov is expected to start in defense after Maximiliano Caufriez was sent off in the 3-2 win over Napoli.

Jordan Larsson may be paired with Aleksandr Sobolev in attack due to the absence of forwards Quincy Promes and Ezequiel Ponce.

Leicester City

Leicester will be without Wesley Fofana, James Justin, and Wilfred Ndidi.

During the weekend’s 4-2 triumph against Manchester United, Jonny Evans was substituted, 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 has struggled at home this season, winning only three of its eight games.

Leicester won 4-2 over Manchester United, their second win in their past eight games. The Foxes have also struggled this season, with their only victories coming against bottom-of-the-table Norwich and Championship side Millwall.

Spartak Moscow will fancy their chances against Leicester, but their key forwards will be missing, therefore the points may be split.
