Over/Under Bet – Benfica vs Spartak Moscow prediction
Spartak Moscow owns the second strongest attack in the Russian league, but experience in the continental arena is still very limited. In the last 3 seasons, Spartak either did not attend or soon stopped in the preliminary rounds. In addition to the recent defeat against Benfica themselves, they also let Novgorod beat 2-1 at home and empty-handed on Kazan’s field in the domestic league. The gameplay is more about the attack, but Spartak Moscow’s downline is becoming a fatal weakness.
