Russia Preview – Can Russia grab vital win?

Russia return to home soil ahead of this important top of the table encounter against Slovenia as the hosts look to grab another three points in Group H and move clear at the top of the group following their opening 3-1 win away at Malta.

That win over Malta would have been a welcome victory for Russia as the hosts had previously failed to win any of their preceding six matches overall in all competitions which included defeats against Turkey and Serbia, although these were both away from home.

On home turf, Russia have produced an impressive string of results as they’ve won their last six home qualifiers on the trot and indeed, have won 11 of their last 12 matches at home which includes a 2-1 win over Slovenia in their last meeting on Russian soil.

Our betting suggestion:

Slovenia Preview – Can Slovenia cause upset?

Slovenia sit level on points with Russia at the top of Group H following their opening 1-0 home win over Croatia which has thrown this group wide open at an early stage in the proceedings and another three points against Russia would give Slovenia a great start to this campaign.

The visitors are unbeaten in their last nine matches overall which includes six wins, most notable being home and away wins over Kosovo in the Nations League along with the recent victory over Croatia but results away from home in World Cup qualifiers have been fairly ordinary.

Slovenia have lost their last three qualifiers on the road on the trot with losses at Scotland, Slovakia and England, all by 1-0 margins while the bigger picture shows that Slovenia have won just three of their last 11 qualifiers on their travels.
