ORN vs SPK Dream11: It's a mid-table clash in the Russian Premier League as FC Orenburg play hosts to Spartak Moskva at Gazovik Stadium on Saturday evening (IST). With six wins, five draws and ten defeats from the first 21 rounds, FC Orenburg are 11th on the 16-team table going into this game. They have lost three times in the last five league games, winning just once against Arsenal Tula. That 2-0 home win was unexpected to some extent as Tula are seventh and are aiming for European places. But it was one of those days for Orenburg when everything clicked for them, while the opponents could only look towards the sky.
Spartak Moscow's record reads seven wins, four draws and ten defeats from 21 matchdays. They are also stuttering as far as recent performances are concerned, for they have lost three times in the last five games, winning only one game in that period.

FC Orenburg vs Spartak Moskva Team News:
FC Orenburg Team News:
Russian centre-back Vitali Shakhov will not feature in this game due to an injury. The 29-year-old is recovering from a muscle injury and remains out of the team without a firm timetable.
Another major issue facing the hosts is winger Ziga Skoflek, who is battling a knock and remains a doubt for this game. He also sat out the midweek clash against PFC Sochi with the same issues. He will be a game-time call.
How FC Orenburg may line-up?
Despite a 5-1 drubbing at PFC Sochi in the midweek, head coach Konstantin Yemelyanov may choose against making changes to the playing 11.
FC Orenburg key players:
Djorde Despotovic: Three man-of-the-match performances and four goals in the last nine league games, that return is enough to indicate that he is one of the most important pieces of this team. He has nine goals for FC Orenburg this season in all competitions.
Joel Femeyeh: Scored Orenburg's only goal in the last game. Opportunities have been few and far between for the talented 22-year-old Ghanian, as he has started only seven this season, but he has impressed in those games.
Ricardo Alves: He is the glue that keeps the midfield together. If he has a bad game, chances are that the opponents have run them ragged. He has three goals and as many assists this season.
Spartak Moskva team news:
Spartak Moskva has some issues in this department with a handful of first-team players out of this match due to various issues.
Moskva's 0-1 defeat at home against Krasnodar was costlier than the three points they dropped as midfielder Roman Zobnin was sent off for two bookable offences and so is out of this game due to suspension.
Three more players in the shape of Alexander Selikhov, Nail Umyarov, and Andre Schurrl, will be unavailable due to injury issues
How Spartak Moskva may line-up?
Guus Til may replace the suspended Zobnin in the playing 11.
Andrey Yeshchenko didn't have the best of the game against Krasnodar and he may get a respite here with Nikolai Rasskazov in contention to replace him in the playing 11.
Jordan Larsson also struggled but he is likely to start here, but if a change comes up top, Aleksandr Sobolev is ready to deputize.
Spartak Moskva key players:
Jordan Larsson: A game to forget against Krasnodar, but he is the team's joint top-scorer this season.
Samuel Gigot: The versatile defender can play either as a centre-back or as a left-sided wing-back. He has four goals this season.
