Spartak Moscow v FC Rostov Betting Tips

These two teams have done well so far this season and will both be looking to be at least in and around the European spots come the end of the campaign. Many people associated with Spartak would disagree with my above statement due to the fact that they currently sit top of the Russian Premier League. However, we have seen potential Spartak title challenges quickly fade away in the past and I imagine the same will happen this year – the fact that the club lost their two matches, and three competitive matches, immediately before the recent international break is…

Zenit St. Petersburg v Spartak Moscow Betting Tips

This match sees the two most exciting sides in the Russian Premier League face off. Both of these teams no doubt have championship ambitions and whoever wins this match will have laid down a real marker. Zenit managed to recover from their 2-2 draw against Anzhi (in which they were 2-0 up) by thrashing AZ Alkmaar 5-0 in the Europa League on Thursday night. The 2008 UEFA Cup champions did not put a foot wrong all night and caused the Dutch side problems from start to finish. Not only that, when Mirceu Lucescu’s team lost the ball, they were so…

Spartak Moscow v Ufa Betting Tips

Free scoring table-toppers Spartak welcome low-scoring Ufa to the Otrkitiye Arena, surely there is only one result on the cards here? Spartak Moscow have had an excellent revival since the arrival of Antonio Conte’s former assistant Massimo Carrera. The Red-Whites have been on a scintillating run which has seen them win five games out of six. Carrera’s side were knocked out of the Russian Cup midweek but I would not read anything into that as they fielded a weakened team away at Khabarovsk, who are based right out towards Vladivostok. Myaso are amongst the top scorers in the league with…

FC Orenburg v Spartak Moscow Betting Tips

This match sees two sides at opposite ends of the table go head-to-head. Both teams need a result here but for entirely different reasons. Orenburg are currently in the relegation zone and are still yet to win a game this season. They have somewhat changed their style since last season’s promotion from the FNL. During that campaign they were known to be somewhat of a goal machine and were up there with the top scorers in the division. However, coming up to the Premier League is of course a new level entirely and so Orenburg have had to change their…

Spartak Moscow v Krylia Sovetov Betting Tip

The league’s most attacking and entertaining side, Spartak Moscow, go up against arguably the league’s most conservative and defensive side in Krylia Sovetov. After their embarrassing defeat to Cypriot side AEK Larnaca in the Europa league midweek, Spartak manager Dmitri Alenichev walked away from the dugout of the Red-Whites. At least that was the official confirmation. Most onlookers suspect he was pushed. This is a somewhat harsh decision given that the Moscow side looked like they were moving forward under the stewardship of their former striker after a great end to last season and a stunning 4-0 victory over Arsenal…

Spartak Moscow v AEK Larnaca Betting Tips

Although many expected Spartak Moscow to come away with a victory and away goal from the first leg in Cyprus, they could only manage the away goal. However, this still puts them in the box seat for the tie as they know a 0-0 draw would be enough for them. While a goalless draw would be enough for Dmitri Alenichev’s men, do not expect this to be a low scoring affair. The Red-Whites were the winners from the opening weekend of the Russian Premier League as they dispatched newly-promoted Arsenal Tula 4-0 to put them top of the pile. Alenichev…

Spartak Moscow v Arsenal Tula Betting Tip

This match sees Spartak manager Dmitri Alenichev come up against newly-promoted Arsenal Tula, the club where he made his managerial name with his attractive playing style in the 2014/15 season. Spartak have already started their competitive season in the Europa League where they could only manage a draw against Cypriot side AEK Larnaca. Even more disappointing when you consider that Alenichev had put out a strong side on Thursday night. Spartak do have some good players and are likely to do well this season if they can carry on the form they had at the end of the last campaign.…

AEK Larnaca v Spartak Moscow Betting Tip

Cypriot side AEK Larnaca have already come through two qualifications rounds to reach this stage whilst Russian football legends Spartak Moscow are set for their first competitive match of the season, just three days before they kick off their Russian Premier League Campaign. Larnaca may be more well known as a holiday destination rather than a hotbed of football but AEK have been the runners up behind APOEL Nicosia for the last two seasons, a great achievement considering they only won promotion five years ago. In terms of European football they have even managed to make it to the group…

Ufa – Spartak Moscow. Thomas Giles prediction

Ufa have slipped into the relegation places over the course of the last few weeks and must now record a win at home to Spartak Moscow to have any chance of staying up. Spartak have already guaranteed Europa League football for next season thanks to a recent upturn in form which has seen them win their last four matches with all of these victories recorded with clean sheets. Yevgeny Perevertaylo’s Ufa are one of the division’s lowest scorers, however, they do have arguably the best prospect in the division in Ukrainian youngster Oleksandr Zinchenko who has been linked with moves to…

Ufa – Spartak Moscow. Dmitry Khlestkin’s prediction

The season is practically over for Spartak Moscow. They can go up in the table only if Krasnodar lose to Amkar Perm at home, which, give how things have gone this season, looks fairly impossible. Ufa are in dire need of points, as it’s the only way to avoid relegation. That’s why some bookies give the teams equal chances in terms of their pricing. Although Ufa have more to play for, Spartak aren’t likely to just give up and certainly have some motivation of their own. They want to help their best player Quincy Promes to become the league’s top…

Spartak Moscow – Terek Grozny – Thomas Giles prediction

Despite being some way off their city rivals Lokomotiv a few weeks ago, Dmitri Alenichev’s Spartak Moscow side have managed to leapfrog them into 5th spot and a potential Europa League place. Spartak are a fairly erratic team which is at odds with Monday’s opponents Terek who are a team lacking much in the way of forward strength, but are pretty solid at the back. This game is a big match in terms of those previously mentioned Europa League spots as Terek can move into that 5th place with a win over Spartak due to their superior goal difference. However, Spartak…

Ural Yekaterinburg – Spartak Moscow. Konstantin Genich’s prediction

Straight away looking at this fixture it is BTTS that stands out. Ural are always motivated against the teams from Moscow, especially Spartak. The visitors have got a lot of fans in Yekaterinburg too, so the atmosphere at the stadium will be great. Great is something Ural haven’t been recently, while Spartak come into this game in good form having won two Moscow derbies against Lokomotiv and Dinamo, keeping clean sheets in both. A third clean sheet may be beyond the Moscow teams’ reach here though. In their last game Dinamo had enough chances and Spartak were pretty lucky not…

Ural Yekaterinburg – Spartak Moscow – Thomas Giles prediction

Ural sit in mid-table mediocrity with ten points seperating them from both the European spots above them and the relegation places below them. This should mean that they go into this game without any pressure against a Spartak side who find themselves in a transitional period under their manager and club legend Dmitri Alenichev. Spartak have a chance of getting into the Europa League spots, however, this is out of their hands and they know that they must win to take advantage of any slip up by local rivals Lokomotiv. Matches involving the Red-Whites always involve goals, their goals for…

Lokomotiv Moscow – Spartak Moscow. Valeri Karpin’s prediction

The Moscow derby look as though It’s going to be a very interesting game. It’s clear that the Spartak players want to save face and get their fans back on aside after some poor results of late. And I can’t say that the game of the Red-Whites is perfect right now either, so both sides are fighting to regain their form in this one. Lokomotiv Moscow look as though they will secure, at the very least, a Europa League spot, although their ultimate goal will be to make it into the Champions League. I don’t think there can be any…

Lokomotiv Moscow – Spartak Moscow. Thomas Giles’ prediction

This is a Moscow derby that should be full of goals with both teams needing to pick up three points to achieve their ambitions this season. Promes is currently the joint top-scorer in the Russian Premier League and he of course will want to put himself back on top of the goalscoring charts to ensure that he clinches this season’s Golden Boot. Furthermore, not only is Promes the joint top scorer, his goals have come right across the season rather than in gluts of two or three over the last few matches. This shows the consistency of the Dutchman and…

Spartak Moscow – Mordovia. Konstantin Genich’s prediction

There is a strange situation with the players’ salary in Mordovia. The team chiefs were told that players can boycott their next game if their salary is not paid in time, although it is hard to say that this is the right attitude. Either way there is unrest at the club and this will surely transpire on the pitch. On this basis I am backing Spartak Moscow to win here, and i think they can score at least twice in doing so. The bet to be on is Spartak to win and over 1.5 goals. Yes, they may concede (I’m sure they…

4/1 Russian Premier League double. Artur Petrosyan’s prediction

Lokomotiv – CSKA Not a single shot on goal – that’s what Lokomotiv showed at Krylya Sovetov on Monday. Losing Oumar Niasse and not bringing in any decent replacement keeps influencing the Railway men’s performance nearly every week. And, if it so happens that their best player of the season Aleksandr Samedov is not at his best, they’re simply becoming a painful side to watch. Having said this, they’re still a really organized side who’re not too easy to break down. I do think CSKA will have good chances to do that though. The Leonid Slutskiy’s side returned to winning…

Andre Villas-Boas has never won against Spartak Moscow and maybe this is his last chance to do it. Zenit are the favourites, but we can’t predict the tactics of Spartak who are always capable of springing a surprise. Spartak Moscow create a lot and score a lot, but they are extremely weak in defense. With this in mind I wouldn’t like to pick a winner here, because either can win the game. What I do expect is some goals in St.Petersburg. The weather is fine, the field is awesome – everything is calling for goals. We can go for over…

Spartak Moscow – Kuban Krasnodar. Dmitry Khlestkin’s prediction

The financial crisis in Russia has taken its toll on the quality of football in the domestic league. While bigger teams have seen a slight budget cut, smaller ones are now having major financial troubles and have had to replace some of their key players with yesterday’s reserves. Kuban Krasnodar are the perfect example of this. In the winter transfer period they lost four players from the starting eleven – Melgarejo, Tkachev, Ignatyev and Tlisov. And the only transfer in that doesn’t raise questions is Ukrainian striker Seleznyov. Meanwhile Spartak have troubles of their own, but after the fire sale…

4/1 Russian Premier League acca. Artur Petrosyan’s prediction

Ufa – Terek Ufa are not as bad as their results suggest. Right, they haven’t won since November, now lost three in a row, but they were competitive in all of them. The Evgeny Perevertailo’s side are now third from behind, taking one of the two relegation playoffs spots. They’d obviously like to avoid that nervous affair and keeping in mind the fact that the desired 12th spot is just five points away should motivate them enough. Terek on the other hand haven’t lost since November and they’ve won three times in the four matchweeks since the Premier League resumed…

FC Rostov – Spartak Moscow. Konstantin Genich’s prediction

It’s not clear if Ze Luis and Quincy Promes are fit to play for Spartak Moscow. But even if they are, Rostov are unlikely to offer the wide-open play to their opponent. Kurban Berdyev’s team will park the bus like in they did against CSKA Moscow. But if there is no Promes and Ze Luis, Spartak are hardly to score. Lorenzo Melgarejo and Ivelin Popov are not at their best now. First, I wanted to go for the unders here, but the odds are too short. So I back Both teams to score – No, which is estimated at 1.73.…

CSKA Moscow – Spartak Moscow. Valeri Karpin’s prediction

It is difficult to say something about the teams that haven’t played in the official matches for two months. OK, CSKA played in the Cup against Ufa, but this is not enough to draw conclusions about the team’s readiness. Ufa are not the opponent to estimate the strength of CSKA. You have to understand that this is a derby and, therefore, there can be any result. Many are waiting for the victory of CSKA, but I would not be so sure. Spartak are playing well in the important matches. CSKA, judging by the end of the first part of the…

Krylia Sovetov are good now, there’s no doubt about that. They’ve just beat CSKA in Moscow, and then had a 0-0 draw with Amkar Perm. They haven’t yet conceded in 2 games in a row. According to Krylia’s striker Sergey Kornilenko, the main task for the team is not to concede goals. But Spartak were even better against Krasnodar and Rubin. The latter two play a more attacking style than Krylia, but Spartak are in good shape. It’s a pity for them that the winter break comes just as they gained some confidence. They have nothing to do but win.…

This match largely depends on Rubin’s tactics and their ability to recover after their Europa League match last Thursday. Rubin have been playing good recently and enjoyed their first win at group stages of the European cup. Rubin’s injured players are scheduled for return on Monday too. But Spartak must be feeling uplifted after a home win against Krasnodar during the previous match day. You should bet on a draw. Even if Spartak have got more class, it will be neutralized by Rubin’s home turf. Moreover, the teams have not drawn for a while. Single: Won Rubin Kazan – Spartak…
