On September 15, the match of the first round of the group stage of the Europa League will take place, in which the Russian "Spartak" will play at home with the Polish "Legia". The forecast for this fight is given by the journalist Dmitry Simonov.
The victory of Spartak in the last round of the RPL over Khimki (3: 1) made a positive impression. The Red and White team entered the match in a good mood, and the return of Promes and Moses to the leaders of the attack played a key role for the victory. Without them, Spartak looked much weaker in terms of design.
In the Europa League match with the Poles, Dmitry Simonov expects a high-quality game of Rui Vitoria's team again, primarily in attack. The expert expects that the Russian team will score at least two goals against the Varshavians. Legia did not look reliable in the playoff round of the tournament with Slavia, having conceded from the Czechs twice in the away match. And in the last two rounds of the national championship, Legia lost, albeit with a score of 0: 1, but it has already fallen back into the relegation zones.
