UEFA Champions League: Spartak Moscow vs FC Barcelona: Predict the Score

New, comments

Predict the result of tonight's UEFA Champions League encounter between FC Barcelona and Spartak Moscow. Do you think that Barca will pick up the win that will secure their place in the Round of 16?

David Ramos

Barcelona will be looking to secure their place in the knock-out stages tonight with a favourable result against Spartak Moscow at the Luzhniki. Obviously a victory will secure that place in the Round of 16, but Barcelona could also qualify with a draw - provided that Benfica do not win their match with Celtic. However, rather than rely on other results, Tito Vilanova will be keen for his side to assert their dominance against their injury-plagued hosts. With a whole host of key players missing out for one reason or another, Spartak will be far from 100% and the Blaugrana should take advantage of that fact.

On the other hand, matches against Unai Emery have never really been kind to the Catalans; while he never sets his team up to defend like Celtic did, they still make life exceptionally difficult for Barcelona. Disciplined at the back and dangerous on the counter-attack, Spartak are certainly in with a chance.
