FC Ufa vs Spartak Moscow
Russia – Premier League
Date: Friday, 20 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:30 UK / 16:30 CET
Venue: Neftyanik Stadium (Ufa).
The joy from beating Zenit at home has subsided quickly enough for the Ufa faithful, as their squad have not been able to pick up a win since that clash. The hosts were taken down by bottom dwellers Orenburg, following which they were forced to share the spoils with Dynamo Moscow in their last clash on the road.
Home advantage has not been working its charm for Spartak Moscow who have been at the losing end in their last three clashes across multiple competitions. The visitors were handed a defeat by Braga in their European qualifiers, soon after which they lost against both Ural and Zenit.
With a change in venue on the cards, Spartak will be hoping to turn things around this Friday when they lock horns with Ufa, who are also on the hunt for a win themselves.
FC Ufa vs Spartak Moscow Head to head (h2h)
- Their last clash at this venue saw Ufa win 2-0.

- A high scoring matchup with over 2.5 goals on the charts has occurred just twice in their previous five games.
FC Ufa vs Spartak Moscow Prediction
Although the home team did lose in their last clash at this venue, that alone does not guarantee the win for Spartak in this one.
Vadim Evseev’s men have tasted success thrice in their previous five home games, two of which were against sides that are currently residing in the top three of the table. Furthermore, the hosts have scored eight goals so far on home soil, and have won with a clean sheet intact in two of their last three fixtures.
Spartak have stumbled only once in their last four outings. As of now, the away side are on a two-match winning streak in their trips on the road as well.
Taking into consideration that the guests have also admitted defeat on just one occasion in their last three visits here, there rises a possibility that they might be able to pick a point off of Ufa. So, a double chance is certainly the safest punt to back.
Their last two head to head clashes have featured under 2.5 goals on the scoreboard. Considering that neither side have been able to score more than a goal in any of their recent games either, expect no more than two goals at the most by the end of the ninety minutes.
