Spartak Moscow Preview – Can Spartak gain useful lead?

Having lost just two of their last 12 matches overall in all competitions, Wednesday’s hosts, Spartak Moscow will be in reasonably confident mood ahead of this 1st leg clash against Benfica when the two teams meet at the Otkrytiye Arena.

Spartak Moscow have won five of their last six matches overall but it should be noted that four of these five wins were achieved in pre-season friendlies, while the other came in the shape of a 1-0 win away from home at Krylya Sovetov in the Russian Premier League on the weekend.

However, the step up to the Champions League has proved problematic for Spartak Moscow in previous campaigns as the hosts have managed to win just one of their last 11 ties overall and this upcoming encounter with Benfica looks to be a tough assignment.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Benfica Preview – Can Benfica continue solid form?

Benfica are enjoying a solid spell of results at the moment as the Portuguese visitors have suffered just the one defeat out of their last 13 matches in all competitions and includes nine wins as well.

This upcoming tie in Russia will be Benfica’s first competitive match of the new season but the visitors produced a solid pre-season by going unbeaten in their five games played, winning three of these with wins against Sporting Covilha, Farense and Lille.

On the Champions League front though, Benfica have only enjoyed modest success, winning just three of their last 11 ties overall while also losing five of their last six away ties in the competition.
