Spartak Moscow and Maribor meet at Otkrytiye Arena, in a match for this phase of the UEFA Champions League (Group Stage). Particular attention is required for the home / away condition, since both teams present significantly different results at home and abroad.
Spartak Moscow :
The home team is currently in the 3 rd position, with 5 points won, after 1 win, 2 draws and 1 loss. In the penultimate match, they won in a home match against Sevilla, by (5-1). In the last match, they lost out to Sevilla by (2-1). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses in away matches; against 9 wins, 5 draws and 1 loss at their stadium. The team comes to this match after a win away with Krasnodar by (1-4). In the last 10 home matches for all competitions Spartak Moscow has won 6, tied 3 and lost 1. Defensive consistency has not been their best, as they have conceded at least one goal in each of the last 4 matches. but their attack has scored regularly, since they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 4 matches for this competition. In 15 games, he got the comeback in 2 of the 4 matches in which he suffered the first goal.
Spartak Moscow enter the field for this game knowing that they need the three points to continue with good chances of qualifying for the next phase of the UEFA Champions League. For this, the team will try to repeat the good performances it has been taking in the Russian championship, where it comes from two consecutive victories, having scored seven goals in that period, and now occupies the fourth position. In his last match, he went to the house of Krasnodar and massacred the hosts by 1×4, showing great offensive power. However, who stands out in the continental tournament is the defensive sector, the second best of Group E. In addition to the Brazilian Luiz Adriano, who has been doing good performances regularly is the midfielder Promes, one of the gunners of the Russian championship and must be present in the starting lineup for this duel.
The away team is currently in the 4 th position, with 1 point won, after 1 draw and 3 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in a home match against Liverpool, by (0-7). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Liverpool by (3-0). This is a team that, oddly enough, was better outside than at home, as in the last 30 matches they register 10 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses in away matches; against 7 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses at their stadium. The team comes to this match after a home win against Olimpija by (1-0). In the last 5 away matches for the UEFA Champions League, Maribor won 2 and lost 3. Their defense has not been very strong, as they have suffered goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their attack has scored regularity, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 10 matches in this competition, he never got the comeback in the 5 games in which he suffered the first goal. In the last 20 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they scored 12 of their 34 goals between minutes (76′-90 ‘).
Maribor is one of ten clubs that have not yet managed to win within the UEFA Champions League, currently occupying the last position of Group E, with only one point won, and with very little chance of qualifying for the next phase. The performance shown in the continental tournament contrasts sharply with what the team has been presenting in the Slovenian championship, in which it occupies the leadership, owning the second best defense and the best attack. However, as in the Champions League we have a higher level, the Slovenians have the worst attack, with only one goal scored, and the worst defense, with an average of 3.5 goals per game. The visiting coach alternates the tactical formation of the team with certain frequency, but he must keep Kabha as a reference in the center of the field.
