Spartak Moscow vs Amkar Perm – Russian Super League : The champions will host Amkar Perm this Saturday on their Otkrytiye Arena…
In a match counting towards the 14th round of the Russian Premier League.
After a not so bright start for the current champions of the Russian league, Spartak have been able to recover on the last rounds and they are already on the European qualification spots.
On the other side of the field, we will have Amkar Perm, a team that usually fights to avoid relegation on the top tier of Russian football,
a situation that shouldn’t change this season and their current classification says exactly that, with Amkar out of the relegation zone but not too far from them.
Spartak Moscow is living its best stage of the season, with Massimo Carrera’s team being on a 3-match win streak, with two of them being on the Russian league and the last one being on the Champions league,
with the Russians hosting and beating Sevilla comfortably by an excellent result of 5-1.
Spartak occupies the 5th position in the Russian league, with 20 points, sitting 8 points behind Zenit St. Petersburg.
With 5 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses and a goal record of 20 goals scored against the 18 goals conceded,
this wasn’t the start of the season he champions were hoping for but things are getting better and the team is certainly confident after the 5-1 win over Sevilla in the Champions League.
For this match, Massimo Carrera won’t be able to count with Rebrov, Tigiev, Zé Luís and Zobnin, with Ananidze and Timofeev still doubtful.
Amkar Perm is on a less favourable position in the Russian League but right now the teams are still very close and packed on the league table.
Amkar sits in 12th with 15 points gained thanks to 4 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses, having a goal record of 7 goals scored and 9 goals conceded.
They are the worst attack in the competition but at the same time they are the 2nd best defence.
On the last 5 matches, they didn’t lose a single one of them, having 4 wins and only 1 draw, which was a 0-0 draw against Tosno.
Spartak Moscow vs Amkar Perm – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Galisin is the only absence for Amkar going into this match in Moscow, where Amkar has already beaten Lokomotiv Moscow this season.
Despite the offensive weaknesses of the team, this Amkar side has already proven to be a tough nut to crack for their opponents’ attacks,
since it is difficult to score against them but this will be the biggest test to Amkar’s defence,
because they will face Spartak who has probably one of the best offensive arsenals in the league, with Quincy Promes and Luiz Adriano up front.
