Our Prediction:

Russia will win

Turkey – Russia Match Prediction | 12-09-2019 08:30

Their squad was largely ridiculed prior to the tournament but in the end they performed well, knocking out Spain and coming within a penalty shootout of the last four. The World Cup went far better than Russians could possibly have hoped for, both on and off the pitch. Coach Stanislav Cherchesov has signed a new two year deal and will have his heart set on guiding Russia to Euro 2020 although he has seen several of his players retire following the World Cup.

They had a positive record during the preparation with 5 victories and 4 defeats, but from our point of view, they didnt show their real face. Aleksey Shved and Timofey Mozgov are the two biggest stars in the Russian team, but we have to add that the rest of the core is sustained by experienced players who play in the domestic league, mostly in CSKA Moscow. Russia is a mystery. They are relying on a high number of points without actually putting too much effort on the defensive end. It means that they know each other very well.

Last month, in Turkey, Denis Cheryshev gave Russia the lead and, after Serdar Azizs equaliser just before half-time, Artem Dzyubas goal early in the second period secured an away win. This will be the third time the two nations have met in 2018, having also drawn 1-1 in a friendly in June ahead of the World Cup Aleksandr Samedov scoring for the hosts before Yunus Malli equalised after the break. Turkey are yet to beat Russia since the break-up of the Soviet Union, with defeat in the reverse fixture making it three Russian wins and two draws in the five games they have played.

In the last 16, Dzyubas penalty ensured a shoot-out against Spain, where Igor Akinfeev was Russias hero in goal as they reached the quarter-finals. Cheryshev and Dzyuba scored again in a 3-1 win against Egypt but a 3-0 defeat to Uruguay left them in second place in the group. There, however, their look ran out losing in the shoot-out to Croatia after a 2-2 draw. After a miserable run of form going into the tournament, Russia put it all behind them in the opening game when they thrashed Saudi Arabia 5-0 Denis Cheryshev scoring twice and Yury Gazinskiy, Artem Dzyuba and Aleksandr Golovin adding the others.

Turkey had a rather dismal campaign in the World Cup Qualifications, but certain improvements can be noticed under Mircea Lucescu. The team head into this with a streak of four games without a loss, but the Romanian manager has reasons to be worried with his defensive line which shipped five goals in last three friendlies against teams like Montenegro, Iran and Tunisia.

They should get a strong reception in Sochi, and we expect the hosts to have enough to claim a huge three points here. We see the hosts doing that, and we think theyre well priced to beat a Turkey side who failed to win four of their five trips in World Cup qualifying. A win would be almost enough to confirm their promotion to the top flight, and secure a Euro 2020 play-off spot. The hosts have taken their matches on the road this autumn, as they look to build on the momentum that the World Cup brought.

The Russians just failed to create in the final third as Cherchesov might reconsider the decision of playing with lone striker as Fedor Smolov could not do much alone up front against a side that has failed to qualify for FIFAs flagship event on the day. The latest of failures came six days ago when the World Cup hosts fell to Austria 1-0 away in Innsbruck.

Prediction correct score: 1 - 0

The Russians are really desperate for the result and theyll be highly motivated to get one which is why we notice the value in backing the home win at 2.00 odds in the clash at VEB Arena. Teams top scorer Cenk Tosun was sent off in the recent 2-2 draw with Tunisia and he will likely be left out here after a troublesome behaviour which followed the red card.
