Expert Betting Tips
Patson Daka showed an amazing level in Moscow and scored Leicester’s all goals. We should expect Daka to play in the starting lineup. Leicester are the favorites to win the upcoming match, but I wouldn’t write Spartak off. Moscow's team only win in this Europa League campaign was registered away against Napoli. Red and Whites can cause some problems to Leicester’s defenders who aren’t in their best form now. I expect another H2H match with a big number of goals scored. For this game I suggest betting on the following markets.
- Goal before 24:00 for 1.83;
- BTTS - yes for 1.88;
- TO 3.5 goals for 2.30.
