Spartak Moscow vs Arsenal Tula
Russia – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 29 August 2020
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Otkrytiye Arena.
The Gunsmiths have actually played a game extra than their counterparts for the day, but are placed much lower than them in the table. In fact, if not for their single win against Dynamo Moscow, Sergei Podpaly’s men would have had a 100% winless record this campaign.
In the meantime, the People’s Team have simply been superb in 2020-21. They are on an unbeaten run so far in the league, and despite having played a match fewer, they have carved themselves a spot in the podium as of now.
As such, expect Spartak Moscow to have the upper hand this Saturday at the Otkrytiye Arena.

Spartak Moscow vs Arsenal Tula: Prediction
The People’s Team have raced to the top tier of the table wasting no time, and they have done so in spite of having played a fewer game. They have also had a unbeaten record so far this campaign, and have scored the third-most number of goals of all the teams in contention.
On the other hand, their counterparts would have been completely winless if not for their single win against Dynamo, and they also have registered a total of just three wins away from home this whole year.
Going on, Tedesco’s men also have been the better of the two in h2h clashes at this venue for the last several years. In fact, they have scored two or more goals in all of their meetings here but once, and they have won all of these games barring two fixtures.
Considering these observations, expect a winning performance from Spartak Moscow this weekend.
