Russia – Turkey, League of Nations. Where to watch, approximate lineups, rates, predictions, statistics

Who will watch the match on TV

The Russian national team rolled well into the League of Nations, winning two starting matches, but before and after the control game with the Swedes, serious problems in defense were outlined due to the coronavirus. First, goalkeeper Marinato Guilherme and defender Georgy Jikia passed the dubious test for covid, then one of the heroes of the 2018 World Cup, Mario Fernandez, went to their company. All three are isolated and will not play with Turkey.

After the defeat to Sweden, Stanislav Cherchesov made two additional calls – Krasnodar goalkeeper Matvey Safonov and Arsenal Tula defender Maxim Belyaev arrived at the team’s location.

Turks’ problems are less tangible. Only Everton striker Jenk Tosun is not in the ranks – he has been treating an injured knee since February 2020.

Russia’s victory: 2,02

Turkey victory: 3,98

The Russian national team rarely leaves the field without goals – in five of the last seven official home matches, Cherchesov’s players have scored at least two goals. You can bet on total over 1.5 with odds of 1.47.

It makes sense to bet on the goal of Artem Dziuba, who is storming the national team’s scorer record. The Zenit player has already scored 26 goals and caught up with Vladimir Beschastnykh, before the figure of Alexander Kerzhakov, it remains to hit the opponent’s goal four times. Dziuba’s success rate is 2.50.

Nor should the Turks be underestimated, who have scored at least one goal in five of their last six away matches. The guests’ goal is estimated with odds of 1.61.
