Liverpool vs Spartak Moscow Preview

Liverpool vs Spartak Moscow

Competition – UEFA Champions League

Stadium – Anfield

Date: 6th December 2017

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Liverpool did not get their Champions League off to a good start after drawing 2-2 at home to Sevilla but they have managed to rescue their campaign and now sit top of their group heading into this clash.

The Reds have the upper hand in this game but they need a win to scale through as group leaders.

On the other hand, they would need to lose 7-0 to Spartak Moscow before they would finish third.

The Reds rested most of their stars ahead of this game and will want to win as Maribor look set to lose to Sevilla.

The Reds are ahead of Sevilla by just one point and have three points more than their visitors.

They won their last two competitive games away from home scoring 8 goals and conceding just one.

This should make Spartak Moscow think twice when they want to attack them.

Spartak Moscow will be looking to be very organised defensively and hit Liverpool on the break but even that strategy could backfire as Brighton realised over the weekend.

They are yet to keep a clean sheet in the Champions League this season and that will be music to the ears of the Liverpool attack.

The Russians have drawn one and lost two of their previous three meetings with Liverpool.
