Spartak Moscow vs Rangers FC MatchGains Match Preview, Soccer Prediction, and Betting Tips
The game ended goalless when these two teams met two weeks back and Steven Gerard would be hoping that his players would get it right this time around and earn all three points.
The Gers have won one, drawn one, and lost one of the three games they have played since they played the Russians at Ibrox, and their weekend win over St Mirren is a welcome confidence booster as they face this difficult away day.
Gerard’s side needed two late goals to get that win at the weekend after two poor game days. They were eliminated from the Betfred Cup at the hands of Aberdeen, before earning just a point against Kilmarnock in their next league game even though they dominated the game.
Spartak Moscow are having a dreadful season. They won the Russian League in 2017 and even competed in the Champions League last season, however, they have had such a poor start to this season that they have sacked the manager who won them the league and installed their fitness coach in temporary charge.
They have only won one of their last four matches as they have juggled the cup, league and Europa League over the last month. This sole victory came over 14th placed Anzhi in a very tight match and they have showed no sign of form coming into this massive game after they lost 2-1 at home to 9th placed Ural on Sunday. Ze Luis has been the only highlight for this extremely poor Moscow side and will have to be dog-eared as the Brazilian has scored eight times already this season.
