Team News: Sparta Prague
The Sparta Prague boss Brian Priske will be happy not to have any fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this game thanks to a completely healthy squad ready to go.
In our view, Železná Sparta may well employ a 3-4-3 system featuring Peter Vindahl Jensen, Martin Vitik, Asger Soerensen, Ladislav Krejci, Angelo Preciado, Qazim Laci, Kaan Kairinen, Jaroslav Zeleny, Jan Kuchta, Victor Olatunji and Lukas Haraslin.
Team News: Aris Limassol
Owing to a fully healthy group available for selection, the Aris Limassol manager Aleksey Shpilevsky does not have any fitness concerns at all coming into this match.
We are inclined to think that The Light Brigade could decide to begin the game with a 4-2-3-1 formation, choosing Vanailson, Eric Boakye, Franz Brorsson, Slobodan Urosevic, Caju, Julius Szoke, Karol Struski, Mihlali Mayambela, Aleksandr Kokorin, Leo Bengtsson and Yannick Arthur Gomis.
Our feeling is that Sparta Prague have it within them to be able to create a good number of chances & successful shots on target.
Conversely, Aris Limassol will be up against it finding the net themselves - but, we do see them being dangerous for periods.
Our tip is for a fairly comfortable 3-1 victory for Sparta Prague at the conclusion of the game.
