We fancy Liverpool to get the win here at odds of 1.23 with Unibet. Below you can read the reasons for our Liverpool vs Spartak Moscow predictions.
We expect Liverpool to Win 3-0 at 8.00 with Unibet
The Reds are top of Group E, but it’s close at the top between them, Sevilla and Spartak who are on 9, 8 and 6 points respectively.
Jurgen Klopp’s men need just a draw to progress to the knockout stage, but will want the three points to ensure first place and top seeding in the draw for the next round.
Meanwhile for the visitors it’s simple, they have to win. If they do they would go level with the Reds on 9 points but have the head-to-head advantage, as the reverse fixture in Moscow ended 1-1.
They also have the head-to-head over Sevilla. If all teams end on nine points (meaning a Spartak win at Anfield and Sevilla/Maribor draw), Liverpool would be the team eliminated.
Surprisingly, the Reds are yet to beat Spartak or Sevilla, and top the group on the virtue of their two wins over Maribor. However, we are backing them to take the three points here at 1.23 with Unibet.
They are in great form and in front of their own fans, against a team who are notoriously strong at home but not quite as formidable away. A 3-0 home win looks good value at 8.00 with Unibet.
As for first goalscorer, 16 goal attacker Mo Salah is unsurprisingly our tip. The Egyptian is flying at the moment and relishes the big stage. Back him to score first at 4.33 with Unibet.
Liverpool host Spartak Moscow at Anfield on Wednesday night. The Reds are still not yet assured qualification to the knockout stage of the Champions League, but will go through with a draw and can assure top spot with three points.
The Reds are in great form at the moment and scoring freely, and although their defence is still dodgy they have improved in that respect. Last time out they were 5-1 winners at Brighton, although they threw away a 3-0 lead at Sevilla in their last Champions League match.
Liverpool Form: WWDDWW
Spartak Moscow have won 4 of their last 5 matches, but are still only 4th in the Russian league as things stand. They need to better Sevilla’s result in Maribor to qualify for the last 16.
Spartak Moscow Form: WWDWWL
The two teams have met five times before, winning twice a piece and drawing the other in the reverse fixture in Moscow back in September. The last time they met at Anfield, Liverpool won 5-0 back in 2002.
Liverpool have most of the squad available for the match against Spartak Moscow. Nathaniel Clyne is still out long term, and Joe Gomez is a slight doubt due to illness. Joel Matip will miss out with muscle problems.
