Russia News and Form – Will Russia keep up their high-scoring?

The Russians a 9-0 success over San Marino on Saturday. That continued on from their 4-0 victory against Kazakhstan. So while those were games which the Russians were expected to win, the amount of goals that they have put on the board is perhaps a little bit surprising. In their Euro 2020 qualification opener, Russia suffered a 3-1 defeat in Belgium. The defeat against the Red Devils was their third straight loss, so Russia really needed to cut loose in those games against the weaker opposition of Kazakhstan and San Marino. Heading into this next match Russia start level on six points with Scotland behind leaders Belgium.


Russia -2 Asian Handicap


Russia have won five of their last nine games played now, but you see a notable trend from them with their better from being produced on home soil. In their last four home games, Russia have returned a W3 D1 record. They have picked up a clean sheet in each of their last three home fixtures, while they have totalled 16 goals in their last four fixtures at home. While they may not worry too much about catching Belgium for top spot, a win over Cyprus will keep them tracking along well for second place and therefore a spot in next summer’s finals.

Cyprus News and Form – Can Cyprus rediscover form?

The Cypriots took a hit in Scotland on Saturday taking a 2-1 loss. They looked as if they had managed to rescue our precious point as they equalised in the 87th minute the fixture. But just 2 minutes later their dreams were shattered as they conceded their second goal in the game. It was a 5-0 home win over San Marino that Cyprus recorded to open their Euro 2020 qualification campaign with. However, that is their only success in their last seven international fixtures. They have lost three of their last four played.

It has been just two wins in their last nine games from Cyprus now, losing five in that sequence. They are not a side who are going to cause a tremendous amount of threat to defences, and Cyprus have scored one goal in their last four games in total. But with that having been said if you look at their current away form they have scored exactly one goal in each of their last three road games. That has not helped in terms of success though because they have lost three of their last four on the road (D1). Cyprus have conceded two goals in all but one of their last four away fixtures.
