Former Spartak footballer Yuri Kovtun talked about the draw for the “people’s team” in the Champions League. Benfica are an extremely dangerous opponent for the Russian club. However, at the moment the teams are at about the same level.
But they showed good results in those games, and what will happen next, probably, the upcoming matches will show. The chances of Spartak and Benfica, I think, are equal. It is difficult to single out a favorite in this pair. It seems to me that rivals do not have a clear superiority over each other “, – said Kovtun.
Earlier, UEFA announced the exact date of the match “Spartak” – “Benfica”.
