Seeking to move into the Conference League qualification spot, Sochi will host Spartak Moscow at the Fisht Olympic Stadium on Monday.

The visitors head into the match on a four-game unbeaten run across all competitions and will be looking to keep the juggernaut rolling.

FC Sochi failed to find their feet last time out as they fell to a disappointing 2-1 defeat against 10-man Krasnodar.

Vladimir Fedotov’s men have now failed to taste victory in any of their last three league games, picking up one draw and losing two since an impressive 4-1 win over CSKA Moscow back in November.

This slump in form has seen Sochi drop to fifth place in the Premier League table, level on points with Krasnodar in the final Conference League qualification spot.

Meanwhile, Spartak Moscow secured top spot in Group C of the Europa League courtesy of a 1-0 win at Legia Warszawa last time out.

Rui Vitoria’s men now head home where they ended their six-game winless run thanks to a 2-1 win over Akhmat Grozny.

With 23 points from 17 games, Spartak Moscow are currently ninth on the log, five points above Rostov in the relegation playoff zone.
