Russia Preview – Can Russia take over at top?

Joint leaders of Group H, Russia and Croatia, will meet at the Stadion Luzhniki on Wednesday night with an important three points at stake for both teams who have won twice and lost once apiece, but Russia hold home advantage.

Russia have registered wins against Malta and Slovenia but lost to Slovakia in a 2-1 defeat away from home but overall, the hosts have been tough to beat on home soil in recent times, losing just three of their last 15 home games in all competitions.

Within this period, Russia have also kept eight clean sheets which gives them a decent chance of getting something out of this encounter with Croatia on Wednesday night.

Our betting suggestion:

Croatia Preview – Can Croatia win three on trot?

After losing 1-0 away from home at Slovenia in their opening match in Group H, Croatia have managed to bounce back in positive fashion by recording back-to-back wins against Cyprus and Malta in 1-0 and 3-0 wins respectively.

However, both of these wins were registered on home soil while results overall away from home have been frankly disappointing as the visitors have claimed just two victories out of their last 16 away games in all competitions.

10 defeats within this period underline Croatia’s problems on their travels while the visitors have also kept just one clean sheet within this sequence as well.
