Leicester vs Spartak Moscow: Foxes rated cut above

Kick-off: 2000, 04/11/2021

Stadium: King Power Stadium

TV: BT Sport

Leicester are involved in an incredibly open Europa League group and will be eyeing maximum points when hosting Spartak Moscow.

The Foxes claimed a thrilling 4-3 victory when these sides met in Russia last month and this promises to be another entertaining encounter.

We like 82/100 for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game for our first Leicester vs Spartak Moscow prediction.

A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds

Leicester gave themselves plenty of work to do when starting out in Group C with a 2-2 draw versus Napoli here and a 1-0 loss at Legia Warsaw.

Edging out Spartak on the road put the Foxes back on track, though, with £23million summer signing Patson Daka grabbing all four goals.

City trailed 2-0 approaching half-time but Daka pulled one back just before the break and added three more cool finishes in the second period prior to Spartak’s late consolation.

Leicester have had mixed results in the Premier League as well this season but played better than the bare scoreline suggests in Saturday’s 2-0 loss to Arsenal.

Aaron Ramsdale made several outstanding saves for the Gunners, who had caught the Foxes napping with a couple of early goals.

Having previously beaten Manchester United and Brentford in that competition, Harvey Barnes told the club website: “We went into the game with so much confidence.

“So, to start the game like we did, it’s not like us. We spoke before and said we needed a quick start, and got the opposite of that and gave ourselves a big task.”

Brendan Rodgers will urge his players to be fully focused from the outset here and Leicester vs Spartak Moscow odds.

A Look At Spartak Moscow’s Betting Odds

Spartak are propping up this pool but only trail Leicester and Napoli by one point, with Legia Warsaw two further in front.

Rui Vitoria’s side lost 1-0 at home to Legia first up but then upset Serie A high-flyers Napoli with a 3-2 victory in Italy.

Netherlands winger Quincy Promes bagged a brace in that game and Vitoria does have some decent attacking options.

Former Chelsea utility player Victor Moses set up Jordan Larsson – the son of Sweden great Henrik – to score versus Leicester on home turf.

Alexander Sobolev hit a double in that game, although Spartak have struggled for goals on the road in domestic action and recently lost 7-1 at Zenit.

As already stated, this section has thrown up some cracking contests, but Leicester do look a cut above on paper.

Given his heroics in the first encounter, 3/1 for Daka to break the deadlock in a home win is worth adding to our Leicester vs Spartak Moscow betting tips.
