Liverpool vs Spartak Moscow predictions for their Champions League match at Anfield on Wednesday. The Reds will finish top of the group and eliminate Spartak with a victory. Read on for our free predictions and betting tips.


Liverpool are scoring goals for fun just now and it looks highly likely that their last Champions League group-stage match will be another entertaining contest.

The equation in terms of the qualification picture for the Reds is quite simple – if they win, they will finish top of Group E ahead of Sevilla in second place with Spartak Moscow eliminated.

The bookmakers think that is exactly what will happen, making Liverpool a best-priced 1/4 to claim what would be a seventh victory in their last nine matches.

A draw would leave Jurgen Klopp’s side staring down the barrel of finishing second to Sevilla but would still send them through at the expense of Spartak. But if the Russians were to pull off a 13/1 triumph at Anfield, Liverpool would be out unless Sevilla lost away to eliminated Maribor.

Although the Merseysiders have not always been as convincing in Europe as they have been in the Premier League this season, there is little wrong with their current form. In only one of their last eight matches in all competitions have they failed to score three or more goals.

Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino already have 28 Liverpool goals for the season between them and Klopp also has Philippe Coutinho, Sadio Mane, Daniel Sturridge and Dominic Solanke to boost their firepower further, plus Adam Lallana on his way back from injury.

However, Spartak should not be dismissed lightly because after an uncertain start to the season, they have hit a fine run of form with the 2-1 loss away to Sevilla at the start of last month being their only defeat in 19 matches.

Ultimately, Liverpool should be too strong on home soil for their opponents from the Russian capital, but in case their defence has another shaky night we will side with the prospect of a goalfest as our main bet.

Liverpool vs Spartak Moscow stats


  • These clubs have met five times previously in European competitions, both winning twice and with one draw in this season’s reverse fixture (1-1)
  • In six visits by Russian teams to Anfield, Spartak are the only winners (2-0 in November 1992)
  • Spartak have played seven other matches in England, winning three and losing three with one draw
