I noticed that Spartak had beaten Krasnodar the other day. No huge surprise there, they were at home and the Russian league is one of those that tends to favour home wins.
I looked at the table and thought ‘Ooh, Spartak are top’. I used to live with a Spartak fan and though we didn’t really get on, there’s a residual fondness there. I have the same thing for Cambridge, too.
Anyway. Spartak always start well. They do. I thought that, so I thought I’d rustle up a quick graph. Expect the fade soon. Game 5 is on August 28.
