    Spartak Moscow v Barcelona Odds: Messi can fire Barca into the last 16

    Barcelona can book their place in the last-sixteen of the Champions League with victory over Spartak Moscow at the Luzhniki Stadium on Tuesday evening. The Spanish giants currently top Group G, despite being humbled 2-1 by Celtic last time out, and they go in as odds on favourites with the bookmakers for match-day five.

    Barca are currently 1/3 on to win the match with Coral and they could even qualify for the knockout stages if Benfica fail to beat Celtic in the group's other match on Tuesday. Tito Villanova will be going all out for the win though and their task is made easier by the news that Spartak are ravaged by injuries.

    Spartak manager Unai Emery has a real selection dilemma as he is likely to be without three of his goalkeepers - Andriy Dikan, Sergei Posyakov and Artem Rebra - as well as Welliton, Aiden McGeady, Diniyar Bilyaletdinov, Sergei Parshivlyuk and Artem Dzyuba. It leaves them with real gaps to fill and it is no surprise to see they are 6/1 to win the match and 10/3 to draw.

    The match looks to have the potential for plenty of goals and over 3.5 goals can be backed at 5/4, while Barca to score over 2.5 goals is an 11/10 punt. Barca have scored at least two goals in 12 of their last 13 outings but for all of Barca's obvious attacking talent they lack a bit of nous at the back and Spartak, who are fifth in the Russian League, can nick a goal. Dmitri Kombarov has been in fine form for them of late, scoring three goals in his last four, and he is 15/2 to score anytime in this Spartak v Barcelona fixture.

    Spartak showed off their attacking talents when they went down 3-2 to Barcelona at the Nou Camp but Lionel Messi stole the show with a brace. Messi, who scored two in the 3-1 win over Zaragoza which ensured the Catalan club remain top of La Liga at the weekend, has now scored five in his last three outings and he has 78 goals in the calendar year - just seven behind the record set by Gerd Muller.

    Messi could move closer to Muller's record this week with a few goals and he is 9/4 to score first and a best price 10/1 to score a hat-trick in the latest betting with Coral. Barcelona, who have lost just two of their last 22 Champions League outings, could run riot against an injury-hit Spartak and they will look to move comfortably into the last-sixteen, with manager Villanova set to have the luxury of picking his first choice centre backs as Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique are fit once more.
