Head-to-head – all-time meetings: Liverpool W2, Spartak Moscow W2, D1
Liverpool have created the joint highest amount of chances in the Champions League this season with 102 (same as Real Madrid).
Liverpool are undefeated in their last nine UEFA Champions League matches.
Roberto Firimino has scored five goals in the Champions League this season, equating to a goal every 81 minutes.
Jurgen Klopp’s men have scored at least three goals in their last three Champions League outings.
The Merseyside outfit have scored a total of 16 goals in the Champions League this season; they are the second highest scorers in the competition.
Spartak Moscow are at least assured of a Europa League place in the New Year but know that if results go their way they can progress to the round of 16. Quite simply they need to win at Anfield while hoping that Sevilla can slip up against Maribor. A win for the Russians and a draw for the Spanish outfit would see the team from Russia’s capital city progress by virtue of a better head-to-head record.
Spartak Moscow require an average of seven shots per goal in the Champions League this season, making them the 12th most efficient team in the competition.
Spartak Moscow have failed to keep a clean sheet in the Champions League this season, but have only conceded six goals in their first five matches - an average of 1.2 goals against per game.
October 2002 would be a trip to Merseyside to forget for Spartak Moscow as they came away from Anfield on the wrong end of a five-star performance from Liverpool. Emile Heskey scored twice as Liverpool strolled to a 5-0 win at Anfield.
