Russia: Winless in last 7 friendlies (Recent Form: DLLLDL)

Russia don’t impress since some time as they’ve got just 1 victory in last 10 matches and they are winless in last 7. Anyway, the only thing which matters now is how they’re going to start the World Cup. Russia take on Saudi Arabia on Thursday at Luzhniki in Moscow in the opening match. “First of all, I ask for support. Similarly to all 32 teams, we want to win the tournament. But, we have to achieve things step by step. Our aim now is to pass the group phase. We need support from whole country. We are hosts and we want to prove to everyone, especially to ourselves, that we can play football well. Saudi Arabia like to play on counter attack and they have fast players,” said striker Artem Dzyuba.

Probable line-up: Akinfeev; Mario Fernandes, Granat, Kudryashov, Zhirkov; Golovin, Erokhin; Samedov, Dzagoev, Miranchuk; Smolov


Saudi Arabia: The underdogs (Recent Form: LLLWWL)

Saudi Arabia are the lowest-ranked team in group A in FIFA ranking (67th), anyway players want to perform well in the tournament. “We are ready. The Russian team is very strong and they have great footballers. They are hosts and we need to focus entirely on the pitch. The team to make less mistakes and play at higher intensity is going to win. Our ambition is to go far at World Cup,” said midfielder Abdullah Otayf.

Probable line-up: Al-Mayouf; Al-Shahrani, Osama Hawsawi, Omar Hawsawi, Al-Harbi; Al-Jassim, Otayf; Al-Dawsari, Al-Shehri, Al-Faraj; Al-Sahlawi



To sum up, it seems that hosts are favourites of this clash. Russia disappointed in friendlies, but they often faced quality opposition. Saudi Arabia don’t seem to have enough quality to get out of the group phase and perhaps Russia may win comfortably this opener.
