Russia Preview – Will the Russians secure maximum points in Moscow?

Due to football coming to a temporary halt back in March, this will be Russia’s first game of any kind since beating San Marino 5-0 in a UEFA Euro 2021 qualifier back in September last year. Since then, scheduled matches against Sweden, Moldova, Poland and Serbia were all cancelled.

After their heroics at the 2018 FIFA World Cup on home soil, Russia have kicked on and booked their spot in next summer’s European Championship tournament. Stanislav Cherchesov’s men picked up eight wins from ten games in Group I, finishing runners-up to Roberto Martinez’s Belgium, who won ten out of ten.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 0754 GMT, Wednesday 2 September)

Russia are on the up under Cherchesov and are certainly capable of winning their Nations League group. After Thursday’s fixture in Moscow, the Russians travel to Budapest to take on Hungary at the weekend. Can Russia get six points in a week to kick off their Nations League campaign in style?

Serbia Preview – Can Tumbakovic’s troops leave the Russian capital with a positive result?

Ljubisa Tumbakovic’s Serbia have some vital games on the horizon. With Nations League fixtures coming thick and fast, the Serbians also have a Euro 2021 play-off to deal with, as they play Norway in Oslo in October. If they win that, Serbia will take on either Scotland or Israel in November for a place in the Euro 2021 finals next summer.

Serbia were competitive in their European Championship qualifying group, winning four, drawing two and losing two of eight. In the end, the Eagles finished third, six points adrift of winners Ukraine and three points behind current European champions Portugal.
