After an absolute thriller in the Russian capital, what will this clash between Spartak Moscow and Leicester City produce?

15 days ago, these two met at Otkritie Arena and, despite kicking off at 5:30 local time on a Wednesday, the entertainment on show was not to be missed.

The home side looked set for a fantastic victory when Aleksandr Sobolev opened the scoring before Jordan Larsson made it 2-0 in the 44th minute.

But then the game turned into the Patson Daka show.

The Zambian striker scored four times in 34 minutes either side of half time to get Leicester into a 4-2 lead.

Sobolev did pull one back right at the end but it wasn’t enough to spark a comeback as the Foxes left Russia 4-3 winners.

Let’s hope the return clash in the English East Midlands also produces seven goals.

That was actually a very important victory for Brendan Rodgers’ side after they’d made a very poor start to this Europa League campaign.

On matchday one, Leicester threw away a 2-0 lead at home to Napoli, conceding twice in the final 20 minutes to only draw 2-2.

A fortnight later, they were beaten, going down 1-0 at Stadion Wojska Polskiego to Legia Warszawa.

Now though, they’re third in Group C, level on points with Napoli and two behind surprise leaders Legia who they host later this month.

Will they add three more points to their tally as they bid for post-Christmas European football?

In recent weeks, Leicester’s form had improved before, at the weekend, suffering a bump in the road.

On Saturday lunchtime, their four-game Premier League unbeaten run came to an end, losing 2-0 at home to Arsenal.

The Gunners raced into a very early two goal lead before having their goalkeeper to thank for repelling numerous Leicester efforts.

Prior to this, the Foxes had won back-to-back league games for the first time this season, beating Manchester United and then Brentford.

They have also reached the Carabao Cup quarter-finals, seeing off Brighton & Hove Albion on penalties last midweek.

Now though, will the Foxes jump into a top two spot in Europa League Group C with a win at the King Power?

Will Spartak cause an upset on the road again?

Spartak Moscow though have already shown they’re capable of causing an upset on the road in Europe this season.

The Red-and-Whites have lost both their home matches in this group so far, 1-0 to Legia Warszawa and then, as mentioned, 4-3 to Leicester.

But, in between, they pulled off a famous victory at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, beating Napoli 3-2.

I Partenopei took the lead less than 60 seconds into that game but were then reduced to ten-men on the half-hour mark; Mário Rui dismissed.

Spartak certainly took full advantage with Quincy Promes scoring twice and Mikhail Ignatov netting in between as they won in Southern Italy.

That’s just the sixth time Spartak have won a European match in 32 attempts since October 2012.

This includes getting hammered 4-0 on aggregate by Benfica in the Champions League qualifiers back in August.

So, the only clubs Spartak have beaten in UEFA competitions in the last nine years are FC Thun, Rangers, Sevilla and Athletic Club and now Napoli.

However, despite being bottom of this group, Rui Vitória’s side are just three points off the leaders so it’s all to play for.

Remember, the group winners go straight into the round of 16 while the runners-up will face a Champions League drop-out in the preliminary knockout round.

Even third is enough to secure knockout football with those clubs transferring to the new UEFA Europa Conference League.

Will Spartak climb off the bottom of Group C?

The side known as ‘the People’s Team’ make the 2,500 km journey west in very poor form.

On Saturday, they were held to a 1-1 draw by FC Rostov with the visitors equalising in the 95th minute.

A week earlier, they’d been demolished 7-1 by Zenit Saint Petersburg.

That is the the biggest defeat in the club’s history and, before that, they’d never conceded 5+ in a top-flight fixture.

Overall, Spartak are winless in three games so are down in ninth place in the Russian Premier League table.

They haven’t finished that low in the table since 2002/03.

Will the visitors cause a big upset in Europe though, just as they did in Naples in September?

The formation that Brendan Rodgers goes for in this game is certainly worth keeping an eye out for.

At the weekend, he deployed the 3-4-1-2 shape that had been working so well in recent matches.

However, 2-0 down and second best to Arsenal, he switched to a 4-3-3 at half time and Leicester were vastly improved in the second 45.

Having said all of that, Rodgers is likely to continue with a back three, partially to matchup against Spartak.

Whatever the shape, Kasper Schmeichel will be in goal having started every Premier and Europa League game to date.

The same back three started their weekend game and the reverse tie in Moscow.

So, Daniel Amartey, Jonny Evans and Çağlar Söyüncü could all keep their places, at Jannik Vestergaard’s expense.

At wing-back, Ricardo Pereira is a doubt so Timothy Castagne and Luke Thomas will start once again.

In the middle, Wilfred Ndidi hasn’t played since 25 September but was at least back amongst the substitutes at the weekend.

The Nigerian could get a runout but is unlikely to start this one, meaning Boubakary Soumaré could be Youri Tielemans’ partner again.

James Maddison will continue as the number ten, looking to add to his solitary goal this season.

Harvey Barnes and Ademola Lookman are the biggest victims of this back three shape.

The two wingers both made an impact against Arsenal but, if Rodgers sticks with a 3-4-1-2, there’s no place for them in the XI.

In attack, Jamie Vardy could be rested so Kelechi Ịheanachọ and Patson Daka, who scored four times in Moscow, will lead the line.

Will Leicester be too strong for their Russian visitors?

Spartak Moskva also favour a back three shape, having used it in their last 11 games, dating back to a 1-1 draw with Arsenal Tula on 21 August.

They do have a goalkeeper problem though.

First-choice Aleksandr Maksimenko has come in for a lot of criticism this season.

That’s because he’s saved just 51.5% (17 out of 33) of the shots has faced in the Russian Premier League this season.

This is the lowest of any goalkeeper in the division so, as a result, he was dropped at the weekend with Aleksandr Selikhov coming in.

That was Selikhov’s first appearance of the campaign but the 27 year old, who’s more regularly seen playing for Spartak-2, could start here.

At the back Pavel Maslov is injured so captain Georgi Dzhikiya will shoulder extra responsibility.

Nikolai Rasskazov is likely to get the nod over Ilya Gaponov as part of the back three.

Victor Moses will be a familiar face at right-wing-back.

The Nigerian international has now represented nine different clubs in his bizarre career, notably playing a key role in Chelsea’s 2016/17 title winning campaign.

In attack, worryingly for Leicester, Rui Vitória have a key attacking option available who wasn’t 15 days ago.

Quincy Promes was injured for matchday three but will start here; the Dutch international has scored 74 goals in 157 Spartak appearances across two spells.

He’ll look to support Aleksandr Sobolev and Jordan Larsson, son of Henrik, who both scored when Leicester were in Moscow.

Georgi Melkadze and Ezequiel Ponce though are both still injured .

Will it be famous night for the Russian giants?
