Barcelona to meet Spartak Moscow at Nou Camp Stadium. This is the first game for both the sides and it is important to start well. Odds on Barca to win are 1.11, simply this is a big joke just because Champions League is not Copa del Rey, it's a much more serious competition. Of course Barca are clear favourites to win this game but I doubt it will be an easy walk for blaugrana. Barcelona already has the experience of losing against a Russian team at Nou Camp. It happened in 2009-2010 season when Rubin Kazan managed to take a shock 2:1 away win and of course odds on Barca were 1.1 or 1.15. Spartak Moscow has several quality players in their squad. Likes of D. Kombarov, Demy de Zeeuw, Bilyaledinov, Jurado, Carioca, McGeady, Kallstrom and Romulo in midfield are definitely solid players and know what to do with the ball when they have it. It is still a question who the ex-Valencia coach will decide to field against Barca at Nou Camp. In attack there are 3 players available to choose from: Dzyba, Ari and in-form Emenike. While they have a huge choice in midfield, their defence is struggling currently and it's not really pleasant to hear this when a Barca game is coming. Neither Pareja nor Parshivliuk started today against Kuban in Krasnodar and I believe they will not make the trip to Barcelona. Coach Emeri had to switch to a 3-man defence with 5 midfielders, D. Kombarov playing as a defender. I expect them to make the same move at Nou Camp, of course giving to some of the midfielders certain defensive functions. All in all I predict a bit more closer match than odds suggest. I will try here with Spartak on handicap since I believe they are able to score against Barcelona
