Venue: Otkrytiye Arena (Moscow).
- PAOK won the first leg 3-2.
In one of the most interesting match of the Champions League qualifiers third round, Spartak Moscow are going to host PAOK.
Spartak side started the first leg clash with brutal attacking force and after only 17 minutes they had a two-goal advantage. However, their opposition managed to pick up themselves and respond furiously by taking the lead by the half-time whistle. The second half wasn’t so efficient, and the result stayed intact.
Quincy Promes and the lads started the season in the Russian Premier League very well as they picked up seven points from three rounds and they still haven’t conceded. The best player of the hosts will be a great threat for their rivals once again as he scored twice a week ago.
PAOK needed to skip past Basel before the clash against the Russian side, and they managed to do it pretty convincingly.
Razvan Lucescu’s side have eliminated the Swiss runners-up with a 5-1 aggregate win and Spartak Moscow should take them very seriously as they’ve beaten Basel by 3-0 at away ground.
They managed to secure an advantage from the first leg clash, however they need to be very careful as they conceded twice in that game.

Spartak Moscow vs PAOK: Prediction
A very tough game to predict, great battle is expected and we believe the hosts should be the ones to secure the victory. Although they lost in the first leg, two away goals could bring them to the qualifiers playoffs.
PAOK have been involved in a lot of high scoring matches lately and they should not rely just on defending their own net. Both sides should come out with an attacking approach and we should see at least three goals once again.
