Russia vs Saudi Arabia Today’s Soccer Prediction
Russia – Saudi Arabia – A match between hosts of Russia and Saudi Arabia’s selection will start on Thursday the most anticipated sport event this year – The soccer World Cup, which will be held for the first time in the largest country in the world for the first time from 14 June to 15 July .
However, now Russia’s selection is in the role of a host, and thus it belongs to the role of a favorite, regardless of the fact that this championship is in a very bad shape. Namely, Cherches’ bosses in the last seven appearances included only three rhymes and even four defeats, despite having played six times on the domestic pitch. Indeed, three of these four defeats were experienced by the world’s greats, Argentina, Brazil and France, while they lost 1: 0 at the end of last month and were on a visit to Austria. On the other hand, they have been defeated last year against Iran and Spain, as well as in the last check at Mundijal, when they played 1: 1 against Turkey.
Otherwise, Cherchesov made constant changes to the starting lineup in all of these matches, all in order to find the ideal 11 for this first match at the SP against Saudi Arabia, which is certainly their greatest chance of winning the group stage, considering later playing against a lot of stronger selections, Egypt and Uruguay. Let’s say it is a bit surprising that Cherchesov has given a long time to experienced Ignashevich, Zhirkov and Samedov, so we are now expecting them as starter and against the Saudis, especially since this defeat of Jiki, Vasin, Schennikov , Glushakov and Shatov, and Kokorin striker.
Convinced starting lineup of Russia: Akinfeev – Granat, Ignashevich, Kudryashov – Fernandes, Golovin, Dzagoev, Zhirkov – Samedov, Al.Miranchuk – Smolov
Although many of them consider themselves an absolute outsider at this Mundial in Russia, the selection of Saudi Arabia in recent friendly matches with Italy and Germany has shown it is not at all naïve because it lost only with a single goal difference, while between these two appearances only Peru succeeded overcome with convincing 3: 0. Previously, they celebrated in domestic friendly matches with Algiers and Greece, while the qualifications for this SP were very good, and as a second in their group they made direct placement in Russia, with only one point less than the first Japan and with the same number points but also a better goal difference than Third Australia.
Otherwise, the Saudis are already the fifth in the world championships, missed the last two Talibans in South Africa and Brazil, so a brand new generation is now on the scene, led by the young Spanish selector Pizzeria. However, he did not take them until late last year, after the placement of SP in the Netherlands was somewhat surprisingly interrupted by cooperation with Dutchman Marwijk, who will eventually be found in Russia as the Australian selector. As for the Saudi team for this first round of the match with Russia, we believe that Pizzi will send almost the same strength to the field, which has been very well against the Italians and Germans recently.
Saudi Arabian Saudi Alliance: Al-Muaiouf – Al-Burayk, Os.Hawsawi, Om. Hawsawi, Al-Shahrani – Al-Faraj, Ateef – Al-Shehri, Al-Jassim, Al-Dawsari – Al-Sahlawi
Soccer Prediction of the Day Russia vs Saudi Arabia
If the Saudis have been shown in a fairly good release in recent friendly matches with Italy and Germany, we are predicting defeat in this first appearance at Mundija in Russia, as this match is the best match for the domestic selection and the best chance to win in the group stage, because they are waiting for a lot more time to deal with Egypt and Uruguay.
