Russia welcomes San Marino in a match from Group I of the European qualifiers. Here are our thoughts about this game in our winning soccer predictions. This fixture is going to be played at the Mordovia Arena in Saransk and it looks like a really easy one for Sbornaya.
Russia started their campaign in the European qualifiers with one win and one defeat. In their first game they suffered a 1-3 loss against Belgium, but after this Stanislav Cherchesov’s boys enjoyed a 4-0 win over Kazakhstan in the city of Astana. Denis Cheryshev scored a brace for the Russians, while Artem Dzyuba also put the ball in the net. Meanwhile Kazakhstan’s Abzal Beysebekov scored himself an own goal.
Russia did very well during the last World Cup. They hosted the competition and reached the 1/4-finals, bringing a lot of joy to their fans. Now their next goal is to reach the Euro 2020, which is going to be hosted by a lot of countries.
After the good performance at the World Cup, the Russian Football Federation took the decision to leave Stanislav Cherchesov as a manager of the national team. He was criticized by a lot of people before the World Cup, but after the tournament he was praised for his work.
What to say about San Marino? Usually they are one of the weakest teams in Europe and things didn’t change very much. San Marino started their European campaign with two losses from two games played. In the first one they lost against Cyprus, while in the second one they lost against Scotland.
These are our winning soccer predictions for the European qualifier between Russia and San Marino on Saturday night. The question is not if Russia are going to win this one, but how dominant they are going to be?
