Match: Spartak Moskva – Arsenal Tula Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: Sunday, 31 July, 2016
Start time: 16:00 UK
Spartak Moscow hosts Arsenal Tula in a game from the first round of the Russian Premier League.
Spartak Moscow started the new season with big ambitions, as always. They failed to intervene in the battle for the title a year ago and now leave with greater optimism. Spartak already began their season with the visit of AEK Larnaca in the Europa League. The Red-Whites escaped valuable draw – 1:1 and they have a good chance to qualify for next round. Because of injuries from the squad of Spartak drop Fernando, Romulo and Sergei Pesjakov (GK).
Arsenal Tula is a novice in the Russian Premier League and purpose to the team, of course, will be survival. Arsenal seems to have a lot of difficulties in the country’s elite. Sergei Pavlov’s boys implied this in his last two friendlies that were most serious in the preparation of the team. Arsenal lost 1:3 against CSKA Moscow and then was broken from Krasnodar 0:4.
Spartak Moscow showed that they were ready for the start of the season. The Red-Whites have played one match in the Europa League and great looking ready for the start of the campaign in the Premier League. I expect them to win this game and start the championship with three points.
