Spartak aim to keep their season alive when they face Napoli on Wednesday in a crucial Europa League match.
The Russian side played out a 1-1 away draw in their previous clash against Leicester where Amartey and Moses scored for either side.
This draw left them at the bottom of Group G with 4 points from 4 matches, but are still in with a huge chance to stay in the competition.
On the other hand, Napoli beat Legia Warszawa 4-1 away to get to the top of the table.
Emreli gave the hosts an early lead before Zielinski, Mertens, Lozano and Ounas scored the important goals for the Italian side to seal victory.
Napoli is on top with 7 points from 4 matches and a win tonight can put them a step closer to qualification.
It’s down to the penultimate clash with plenty to play for in Group G.
Both sides on MD 2 in September, where Spartak won 3-2 away the last time out.

Spartak possible 11:

Napoli possible 11:
Ospina, Di Lorenzo, Rrahmani, Koulibaly, Rui, Anguissa, Ruiz, Lozano, Zielinski, Insigne and Mertens
Prediction: Spartak 1-2 Napoli
Spartak are still in with a chance to seal qualification but need to win this match as they are bottom placed; 2 points away from a top 2 place.
Napoli lost their weekend-match to Inter and which brought their winning run to a halt in the league and would be keen to return to winning ways.
The Italian side are in a better space in terms of qualification and form. We expect them to win this one.
Players to watch out for: Promes, Sobolev, Mertens and Zielinski.
