Maribor vs Spartak Moscow Prediction & Betting tips
An interesting match in this Wednesday’s match will be Maribor and Spartak Moscow for the first date of the Champions League (group stage).
In my opinion, the Russian picture is slightly favored due to a question of hierarchy between campuses. However, if we consider that the local table is combative and uncomfortable to overcome before its people, we advise you to play a few euros to the bet “plus 1.5 goals”. Remember that the visit is not solid at the time of marking, demonstrating this in several games of his domestic league.
Take into account that Maribor arrived at this instance after surpassing several previous phases, being the last one before the Hapoel Beer Sheva Israeli (eliminatory gained by the famous visitor’s goal to lose 2-1 of visit and to win 1-0 like local). In these days, he has 18 points in his domestic league, product of 5 wins and 3 equalities in total (13 goals in favor and 5 ceded in his fence).
On the other hand do not forget that the Slovenian box has added diverse results in his stadium, after winning 3 games and tie the other 2 that disputed in this condition. He comes from beating 1-0 at Aluminij, beating Rudar 1-0, 0-0 against Domzale, beating Krsko 3-2 and 0-0 against Celje on Friday.
Spartak Moscow :
Continuing with the analysis you should know that Spartak Moscow is the current champion of Russian football after a great campaign in the previous season. He came from playing against Rubin Kazan last Saturday, winning 1-0 at home. Thanks to this victory, he cut a streak of 3 games without winning, reaching 12 units in total (uneven walking garter when yielding many points and goals on his fence).
To finish we tell you that the Russians have added negative results as visitors in their domestic league, having not won one of their 5 outings (2-2 draw against Dinamo Moscow, parity 0-0 against UFA, fall 5-1 against Zenit, 2-1 defeat to CSKA Moscow and goalless against SKA Khabarovsk).
After all this I play for the “more 1.5 goals” bet because of the following reasons: First because the two teams can alternate the ball and goal situations, as they are relatively even in their action. Therefore, since there are none superior to another in its totality, it is logical that they can recover from a hypothetical initial disadvantage. Second because Maribor could take advantage of the local factor and the dimensions of his field to put pressure on his rival and get at least one goal in favor. And third because Spartak Moscow has interesting players in attack, which could generate chances from the initial pitazo. Faced with this reality and knowing that the Russians are irregular in defense, we believe that the party can finish 1-1 or 2-0 in favor of any side.
