Spartak Moskva VS Ajax match analysis

In first leg Spartak won 1-0 and fro thsi match some factor seems go in their favour. It is difficult for all teams play on Spartak's artifical fields, also for weather conditions and for this match Ajax will be forced to attack to gain next round with, at the same time, a difficult situation in defence. Infact both first and second goalkeeper are out. First choice Stekelenburg injuried in training, while second Vermeer remain injuried. So, between the sticks will be third choice Verhoeven, an experinced keeper (30 years old), but tha played as regular only one time in this season. In this situation Spartak has strong attackers as Welliton, D. Kombarov or Alex that can easily score and, on the opposite sector, their defence shown to be weak in opening match of Russian Premier losing 4-0 against Rostov. But in that match Spartak made a bit of turnover, UEFA Europa League is a target for Russian teams and also for Spartak. The fact that Ajax is forced to attack means that they'll remain open for home counterattacks, with their advantage russians haven't need to attack and can wait tha dutch move. The other fact that i explained above are all in favour of home team, so an home win - to cover with DNB - seems a good option to me.
