UFA Vs SPK Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Either side looks to register a second win on the bounce in this intriguing affair.
Ufa had to grind their way to tedious results the last time around but the club’s worldclass defence managed to take the side to a reasonably respectable spot in the league. However, the acumen in the club’s defence has vanished up in smoke in the 2020 edition of the Russian Premier League with the side being slammed for 5 goals in two encounters.
The side needed its defence to rescue it against Arsenal Tula, a narrative which hasn’t been witnessed in over a year now. A side which scored a measly 24 goals last season went onto score 3 in a five goal thriller against Arsenal Tula the last time around to muster up a closely contested win for the club.
While the side did manage to get its campaign underway with its first win, the result was hardly a convincing one for the side. A laggard and dreary backline has done no favours to a side which has traditionally found it a dicey proposition to score, a dilemma which doesn’t bode well for the side ahead of today’s imminent encounter against Spartak Moscow.
Although these are early days in the Russian Premier League, the 2-0 win over Akhmat is bound to have done a world of good to Spartak Moscow. The first win for the side this season, the club is yet to lose a match in the league to find itself as high a 5th spot.
With the team looking to go from strength to strength, the club is set to be bolstered by its bygone win. The side will come hot out of the blocks today to register a second straight win as it makes the most of Ufa’s tottering defence.

UFA Vs SPK Dream11 Goal-Keeper
While the goal-keeper is never hailed in a 3-2 win, Aleksandr Belenov managed to do exactly that the last time around. The shot stopper was lauded for his tenacity as he parried away shot after shot to keep his side’s one goal lead intact in the encounter.
UFA Vs SPK Dream11 Defenders
With a cleansheet the last time around, Spartak Moscow showed why the 3-5-2 formation they have deployed serves them so well. The side has propped its backline by adding extra wide support to the three central defenders with the wingbacks doing a world of good to the formation.
Along with their defensive acumen, the two have provided unbridled support to the side’s attacking soirees as well. Versatile names whose endeavours translated into a match winning display for the club the last time around, both Ayrton Lucas and Roman Zobnin will be inducted into our setup for this one.
Samuel Gigot was is fine touch last season as he stung together four goals for the side and the CB has carried that form into this campaign as well to see him complete our trio from the side.
UFA Vs SPK Dream11 Midfielders
With assists to their name in the opening couple of encounters, the duo of Zelimkhan Bakayev and Roman Zobnin was a must have pick for us today. The partnership is a flair filled one, one capable of making life a throbbing headache for a side which has already gone onto concede the five goals.
Vyacheslav Krotov and Artyom Golubev were responsible for Ufa’s first win in the league the last time around. The two scored the two goals in between them in the team’s 3-2 triumph on the day, performances which saw them move in unison and spur the side towards a win.
Catalin Carp will link up with the two attacking names. The CDM comes bearing defensive qualities into our side, ones which will be critical to the side infront of a rampant Spartak Moscow attack.
UFA Vs SPK Dream11 Strikers
Up against an Ufa which has leady gone onto leak five goals inside the space of two encounters, this partnership from Spartak Moscow can end up relishing its time out on the court today. Jordan Larsson the club’s top scorer and Ezequiel Ponce with the one goal make for must have picks, names who can end up going on a rampage today.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Larsson’s two goals make him a prudent pick as our side’s captain while Zobnin is the vice-captain.
