Spartak's Luiz Adriano could open the scoring

Champions League Group E
Live on BT Sport 3, 5pm Tuesday

It has been tough for Slovenian minnows Maribor on the road in this season’s Champions League with 3-0 defeats at Sevilla and Liverpool and Spartak Moscow can complete the hat-trick.

Maribor’s only point came in the reverse fixture, although the Russians were ravaged by injuries at the time and have since seen key men return.

That was shown with a 5-1 demolition of Sevilla on matchday three and Spartak are unbeaten in the Russian league since mid-August.

Roman Zobnin, one of Spartak’s most influential performers from last season’s title success, is finally fit again after a long-term ACL problem and Aleksandr Samedov is also available to further boost Massimo Carrera’s options.

Spartak need to win and Luiz Adriano is fancied to break the deadlock. The Brazilian bagged twice in the 4-1 victory at Krasnodar on Saturday.

Recommendation
Luiz Adriano first scorer
1pt 7-2 general
