Where the ongoing edition of the Russian Premier League had begun in pinch perfect fashion for both Ufa and Spartak Moscow, the last couple of weeks have not been so kind to the two outfits. There is no disguising the disruptive form the two outfits are suffering at the moment, both going on a downward spiral, entrapped in an impasse they are finding adverse to wrench out of.
With two successive defeats, the most recent one being a 2-1 defeat to Ural yesterday, Spartak Moscow find themselves out of the top 4 after having registered a spree of thee wins previously. And with the clamour for the top 4 spots heating up in the early stages of the showpiece league itself, the side know a win would not only help them maintain speed with the rest of the sides but also provided much needed impetuous into their season.
Meanwhile, from the dramatic land of the league, a win is equally critical for Ufa who in 9th place haven’t done much to cover themselves in glory. With just two wins in their last five matches, the side have now lost 4 out of their nine contests with just the three wins seeing them fighting to hang onto a respectable spot, one which is set to come under more brunt infront of a superior opponent today.

There is one name we had to give priority to, a defender we wanted to get in before anyone else when we approached this segment of our side. Spartak Moscow have seen their centreback, Samuel Gigot emerge as the leading scorer for the side with the defender stalling tall amongst everyone else in terms of viable choices in this facet.
His affinity to canter his way into the opposition’s side of the park and smashing headers have seen him amass four goals, making him an instant pick for us.

We begin with the picks from the hosts this time around, choosing their leading goal-scorer, Danil Fomin as our first pick. The midfielder is an integral part of the side’s gameplan in each and every encounter, someone who is capable of not only moving forward with the ball with effervescent ease but putting on a defiant front in the defensive side of things as well.
He’s partnered by Oliver Thill while elsewhere we have opted for a trivalent of picks from Spartak Moscow. We begin with the ever enterprising and enigmatic CAM Guus Til, pairing him up with Zelimkhan Bakayev and CDM Roman Zobnin as we look to add the perfect balance of attack and defence from the side into our side.
SPK vs UFA Dream11 Strikers
We have the one player apiece come into our side from both our opponents on the day, making Jordan Larsson our first pick. The rightwinger has shown he’s more than adequate at traversing past defenders in his travails of trying to find the goal and with Ufa not the steadiest of sides under pressure, he could easily give as a goal or assist today.
Vyacheslav Krotov from the other side completes our picks for this clash.
