Venue: Stockhorn Arena (Thun).
This game arrives ahead of the Europa League Qualification affair and will be played on August 8 at 5 pm. The Stockhorn Arena in Thun is ready and waiting for the opponents to hit the ground. We expect to see the away side to be on the top in this match so make sure you follow the match preview that we have for you, also the best betting tips and the correct score predictions for this game.
The Oberlanders, or if you prefer Thun in their previous 5 affairs they have recorded a single win, 2 losses and 2 draws. So they produced a mixed bag of results but the great news is that the new signings are yet to settle and to start producing their best performances. They didn’t show off too much in the clash with Basel, instead, they failed to control the flow and allowed Basel to get an easy 17 shots and 6 of them were on target. So, our picks for this affair are the Russians, undoubtedly.
Spartak Moscow in Russia is known as People’s Team and are on a winless streak with 2 draws and a loss. Even though they have failed to score a single goal in the last 2 affairs we believe that they learned from the mistakes committed and that will manage to change their ways of no wins. We expect that to change with the new attackers that have joined the team so let’s see what’s going to happen.
The H2H records can’t be a part of our analysis this time because these two teams will be having their first clash. But based on their recent performances and available players we were trying to find the winning combinations. Therefore, we expect to see Spartak Moskva take all the three points by the minimal result.
Latest Team News
The optimal starting 11 to be found is going to be a hard thing to do for manager Marc Schneider because a total of 10 players of Thun are bound to miss the fixture due to the injuries they have gained. And the absence of Chris Kablan, their starting left-back will give the Russian team an advance and plenty of chances on that part of the field.
The team has been active through the summer window transfer and has heavily invested in their attacking options. We truly believe to see the difference on the field and see those investments pay dividends this Thursday’s match. The transfer has been made for the two successful players Guus Til from AZ Alkmaar and Reziuan Mirzov from Rostov.
