Match background Only this chapter

Buoyed by an impressive away win on Matchday 2, Spartak Moskva will be looking to make a further mark in UEFA Europa League Group C as they host a Leicester City side who have made a stuttering start to their campaign.

• Defeated by a late Legia Warszawa goal in Moscow on Matchday 1, Spartak bounced back with a 3-2 win at Napoli, Dutch international Quincy Promes scoring twice, while Leicester, who drew 2-2 at home to Napoli in their opening fixture, were defeated 1-0 at Legia last time out.

Previous meetings
• This is Leicester's first UEFA encounter with Russian opposition.

• Spartak's record against English opponents is W9 D3 L7 and they have won five of their nine fixtures in Moscow, although none of the last three have ended in victory. The most recent was a 1-1 draw with Liverpool in the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League group stage that preceded a 7-0 reverse in the Anfield return – the club's heaviest European defeat.

Form guide
• Spartak were runners-up to Zenit in the 2020/21 Russian Premier League, finishing eight points behind them, to return to Europe after a season's absence. Their first port of call was in the UEFA Champions League third qualifying round, where they lost 0-2 at home and away to new coach Rui Vitória's former club Benfica, an outcome that returned them to the UEFA Europa League group stage, where they have competed just once before, in 2018/19.

• Quarter-finalists in the 2010/11 UEFA Europa League after transferring in mid-season from the UEFA Champions League, Spartak also reached the round of 32 by the same route in 2017/18, but their sole group appearance came the following season and it proved unsuccessful as they picked up just five points and finished bottom of a section containing Villarreal, Rapid Wien and Rangers.

• Spartak's home record in the UEFA Europa League, including the qualifying phase, is W3 D2 L8. They have won just two of their last ten European home games (D3 L5), losing all of the last three, including both this season without scoring.

• Leicester booked back-to-back appearances in the UEFA Europa League group stage by winning the FA Cup for the first time in their history – thanks to a 1-0 win in the final against Chelsea. However, in a repeat of the previous season Brendan Rodgers' side just missed out on UEFA Champions League qualification, finishing fifth in the Premier League after spending almost all of the campaign in the top four.

• UEFA Champions League quarter-finalists in 2016/17, the Foxes won their UEFA Europa League group last season on their competition debut, finishing ahead of Braga, AEK Athens and Zorya Luhansk, but were eliminated in the round of 32 by Slavia Praha (0-0 a, 0-2 h).

• The East Midlanders have won only three of their 14 away fixtures in UEFA competition (D3 L8), the most impressive of them 3-0 at Club Brugge on their UEFA Champions League debut five seasons ago. They have now gone four UEFA Europa League away games without a victory, failing to score in the last three.

Links and trivia
• Spartak defender Jorrit Hendrix's next appearance in UEFA club competition will be his 50th.

• Spartak's Nigerian winger Victor Moses has spent most of his career in England, and is a former England youth international. He scored for Chelsea in a 3-0 Premier League win at home to Leicester on 15 October 2016.

• Moses plays alongside Leicester's Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho for the Nigerian national team. He was a team-mate of Leicester full-back Ryan Bertrand at Chelsea in 2012/13, when the London club won the UEFA Europa League – though neither played in the final.

• Spartak's Ezequiel Ponce and Leicester's Boubakary Soumaré played together for LOSC Lille in 2017/18.

• Leicester's Ricardo Pereira played under Spartak coach Rui Vitória at Guimarães in 2012/13, when they won the Portuguese Cup together.

• Leicester's Kasper Schmeichel and Jannik Vestergaard were in the Denmark team that defeated a Russia side featuring Spartak's Georgi Dzhikiya, Roman Zobnin and substitute Aleksandr Sobolev 4-1 in Copenhagen at UEFA EURO 2020 to reach the knockout stage at their opponents' expense.

• Two other Leicester players, Youri Tielemans and Timothy Castagne, were also in opposition against Russia at UEFA EURO 2020, helping Belgium to a 3-0 victory in St Petersburg in their opening group game – although Castagne had to leave the field with a serious facial injury midway through the first half. Dzhikiya and Zobnin both started for Russia.

• Tielemans was in Belgium's squad at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, where they finished in third place. He came on as a late substitute in his team's 5-2 win against Tunisia at the Stadion Spartak.

• Other Leicester players who visited Russia for that World Cup were Schmeichel and Vestergaard, Ndidi and Iheanacho, Ricardo Pereira (Portugal) and Jamie Vardy (England). Vardy came on as a substitute in England's penalty shoot-out win against Colombia at the Stadion Spartak in the round of 16 but did not take a spot kick.

• Leicester are one of six reigning domestic cup winners competing in the 2021/22 UEFA Europa League group stage.
