Maribor - Spartak Moscow betting preview and advices
Bookmakers offer the guests as a clear favourite in their betting lines, but it seems they can be wrong! Despite the names of these teams and the fact that the Russian championship is much stronger than the Slovenian 1. Division, Maribor always knew how to rebut to the bigger clubs and look much more ready for the season, than Russians. Furthermore, it should not be forgotten that Maribor are unbeaten in 7 European games at own ground with wins 5 wins and 2 draws. Actually, the hosts are hard-to-beat team as they have lost only two of their last 12 European games. Until then, the Slovenes played with the Russian club only once, which was Rubin, and did not have any problems with this opponent as they crashed them with a score of 5-2 at home drew 1-1 in Kazan. The Violets look solid now, having lost only one game so far and do not have defeats in Slovenian 1. Division. Maribor producing good defensive football – they have gone 250+ minutes without a goal at the moment.

The current champion of Russia looks poor so far, having won only 3 of the 9 games and have negative goal difference. They met with three solid rivals in the Russian Premier League so far (CSKA, Lokomotiv and Zenit), and lost to them all, which already speaks for itself. The Red-Whites are without a win in their last 7 European matches since 2012, moreover they have not won on the road 8 European games. The guests depend too much on one player, because Quincy Promes has scored seven goals already this season, and this is exactly half the team’s total! Shut him down and the guests` attack will be toothless! Spartak have huge problems in defensive line as the Red-Whites have conceded 13 goals already, they did not concede as many last season until the 17th round of RPL. All that proves the hosts have a good chance to take points today.
