UEFA Champions League
(13 Sep 2017)
Maribor – Spartak Moscow
Maribor welcomes Spartak Moscow in a match of a group stage of the UEFA Champions League.
Maribor: The home team has made it through Champions League qualifying to get to the group stage as title winners of the Slovenian league last season. Furthermore, they qualified for this group stage after having eliminated Hapoel Be’er Sheva in the previous round. Also, Maribor is unbeaten so far this term but, still, they don’t look much of a threat. However, they often score goals in Champions League matches, especially when playing home.
Spartak Moscow: On the other side, the away team had direct access to this group stage. Spartak Moscow, unlike its opponent, has not been showing good performance at the start of the season. However, they have the capacity to create a lot of chances as their offence has scored consistently in all competitions.
Conclusion: There will be some hope that Spartak’s poor form could give the home team an opportunity to get three points against the Russian team. However, Spartak Moscow is favourite to win this match, as they have a team technically superior to the opponent. After all, mentioned factors should contribute to a high-scoring game in Slovenia.
