SPARTAK MOSCOW VS PAOK PREVIEW & PREDICTION
On Tuesday, starting at 18:30, Spartak Moscow – PAOK Thessaloniki, will be disputed in the preliminary round of the Champions League 2018-2019.
Mansa tour, ended with a 3-2 score for PAOK, is the only direct official match between the two bands.
Spartak Moscow coached by Italian Massimo Carrera played 2 games in the first league of Russia in this season’s debut. In the first stage he defeated Orenburg 1-0 with his new home, then drew 0-0 away to the Lokomotiv en-titon champion. It is worth mentioning that he managed two transfers, Samuel Gigot brought for 8 million euros from KAA Gent and Aleksandr Tashaev from Dinamo Moscow.
Razvan Lucescu has built a renowned band, very hard to beat. He fought until the last stage for the title of champion in Greece and only the disciplinary committees made him lose the trophy. He is sure to re-emerge in the domestic competition, but he also has a good chance in the Champions League. He transferred three new players during this period. The 19-year-old Brazilian Leo Jaba came from Akhmat Grozny, Chuba Akpom from Arsenal and Evgen Khacheridi who arrived free from Dinamo Kiev. The Greeks have gone through the previous two rounds of FC Basel, 5-1.
The tournament match was an extremely spectacular duel. Spartak led 2-0 and until the break, Lucescu’s students returned the result, leading 3-2 and maintaining the advantage to the end. Towards the end of the match, Spartak missed a penalty by Promes. Probably now Spartak will risk even more and will be discovered.
