Russia vs Saudi Arabia Match Results Prediction
Keeping the facts in mind we can see Russia and Saudi Arabia are on the lowest sides. Experts of the tournament feel that this match will most likely decide who ranks 3rd in the Group A as they internally feel that Uruguay’s leading in this group with Egypt being a better side. However, it’s FIFA World Cup so you never know what’s hidden in the talent box.
We can predict a good fight between both teams and the chances of Russia to become the winner of the match are bit higher than the Saudi Arabia.
Key strong points of Russia:
- The international ex Russian goalkeeper Stanislav Cherchso is the coach of Russia and he’s known for his dour defensive style. And a change in the same might help Russia.
- Russia is also expecting it’s forward, Fedor Smolov, can recreate the goal he scored when the played against New Zealand in their first game victory in the FIFA Confederations Cup 2017.
Key strong points of Saudi Arabia:
- Russia has to be more careful as the coach of Saudi Arabia is Juan Antino Pizzi who’s the Aregentinian-born coach.
- There are 2 players in Saudi Arabia team, Fahad Almuwallad and Mohammad Al-Sahalawi who have the ability to become the game changer. Mohammad Al-Sahalawi’s fast feet and rare turns of pace can be a big challenge for Russia.
