Russia Prediction – Can Russia draw level at top of group?

Following a 3-1 defeat away at Group I leaders, Belgium, in the opening match of the group stages, Russia haven’t looked back as they’ve won their subsequent 7 group matches on the trot which has lifted them up into 2nd place and 3 points behind their Saturday’s visitors ahead of this penultimate match in Group I.

Russia therefore certainly bring an impressive winning momentum into this top of the table clash on Saturday, and during this 7-match winning sequence Russia have scored a total of 26 goals and conceded just 1 in reply which is a staggering run of results.

The hosts also possess a 100% record at home so far in what has been an excellent Euro 2020 campaign which has seen them brush aside all other rivals bar Belgium, and they’re already guaranteed their place in next year’s European Championships as they hold a commanding 11-point lead over 3rd placed Cyprus.

There’s just the matter of deciding the group winners now, and having also won all 4 of their home matches to nil, Russia will be confident that they can give favourites Belgium a real run for their money in St Petersburg.

Belgium Prediction – Can Belgium confirm group winners tag?

Before the group stages of the Euro 2020 qualifying campaign began, Belgium were being heavily tipped to finish top of Group I and the Red Devils have certainly lived up to their favourites tag as they sit 3 points clear of Russia prior to this penultimate round showdown against their closest rivals in St Petersburg.

It’s been an excellent and flawless campaign so far for Belgium who possess a 100% winning record both home and away, whilst scoring a total of 30 goals and conceding just 1 in reply – which was in their opening match of the group stages when they beat Russia 3-1 at home.

Only England (33 goals) have scored more goals than Belgium during these qualifiers, but in arguably a weaker group, but nevertheless, Belgium had already booked their place in next year’s European Championships some weeks ago, such has been their dominance in Group I.

The visitors have also won their last 6 Euro qualifiers on the trot away from home, scoring a total of 17 goals and conceding just 1 in reply during this impressive sequence of results on the road, and they too will be confident of maintaining their 100% record in Russia on Saturday.


Key-Facts – Russia vs Belgium

  • Russia have won all 4 of their home matches in Group I
  • Russia have scored 26 goals and conceded just 1 in last 7 matches
  • Belgium have won their last 6 Euro qualifiers on the trot away from home


Betting Tips Verdict

This could be an absolute cracker, and with home advantage Russia stand a decent chance of getting something out of Belgium here.
