Spartak had another ambiguous season in Russia Premier League, finishing fifth in the standings with 48-39 aggregate goal difference. The team played five friendlies this summer, taking wins in all five sparrings with 10-3 aggregate goal difference. The season in Russia hasn’t started yet and this match will be the first official game for the visiting side.
The opponents haven’t met before. Despite home-field advantage and successful results in matches of Europa League qualification, Spartak is much more skilled team and clearly are of higher level. Teams like Spartak shouldn’t even notice resistance of Cypriots and try to take an away win.
Prediction for the match: Spartak to win with +0.0 Asian handicap.
