The loss to WIT ended Torpedo's 8-match unbeaten run and their rise in the table was stopped. On Wednesday, though, the team won the first leg against Sioni in the cup in a desire to get back on the winning ways. Matches of Torpedo this season are marked by a lack of goals and we can see it on their goal difference - 8:9 after 16 matches. It looks as if coach Gigatadze wants to keep it tight at the back, while rushing forward is not a priority.
Spartak started the season poorly, but have recently upped their performance and won their last two league games - against WIT and Baia. The team suffered a setback on Wednesday, though, as it lost to WIT in the first leg of the Cup. New striker Barabadze scored two goals against Baia and will be looking to disappoint ambitious Torpedo.
Torpedo are aiming for the top4 positions this season and their recent rise in the table showed that this is possible. On paper it is easy to win points against Spartak, but the guests are in good form over the last few weeks, so no one knows. I expect a tight game, which will be decided by a single goal.
