Russia vs Saudi Arabia Today’s Soccer Prediction
Russia – Saudi Arabia – In the match between Russia’s host and Saudi Arabia, the world’s most anticipated sporting event this year begins – the World Cup in football, which will be held for the first time from 14 June to 15 July for the first time in the world’s largest country . However, now the selection of Russia is in the role of the host, so they themselves have the role of favorites, regardless of the fact that this championship is in very bad shape. Namely, the selectors of the selectors Cherches in the last seven appearances entered only three draws and even four defeats, even though they played six times on the home court. However, three of these four losses were experienced by world powers, Argentina, Brazil and France, while at the end of last month they lost 1: 0 and away from Austria. On the other hand, they remarried last year against Iran and Spain, as well as in the last test before Mundial, when they played in Moscow 1: 1 against Turkey.
Otherwise, Cherches always made changes in the starting lineup in all these games, all in order to find the ideal 11 for this first match at the World Cup against Saudi Arabia, which is certainly their biggest chance of winning in the group stage, given to later play against much stronger selections, Egypt and Uruguay. Let’s say it is a little surprising that Cherches has given a great deal of lately to Ignashov, Zhirkov and Samedov, so now we are expecting them as starters and against Saudis, especially because of the final list for the SP due to injury, the defenders Jikia, Vasin, Schennikov , the bondsmen of Glushakov and Shatov and the attacker Kokorin.
Probable initial composition of Russia: Akinfeev – Granat, Ignashevich, Kudryashov – Fernandes, Golovin, Dzagoev, Zhirkov – Samedov, Al.Miranchuk – SmolovAlthough many consider them an absolute outsider in this Mundial in Russia, Saudi Arabia’s selection in recent friendly matches with Italy and Germany has shown that it is not at all naïve, because it lost only with one goal difference, while between these two appearances only Peru managed master with convincing 3: 0. Previously, they celebrated in domestic friendly tours with Algeria and Greece, while the qualifications for this World Cup have done quite well, and they won second place in Russia in their group, with only one point less than the first Japan and the same number points, but also a better goal difference than third Australia.
Otherwise, the Saudis are already fifth in the world championships, but they missed the last two Mundials in South Africa and Brazil, so now there is an entirely new generation, led by a young Spanish spaniard Pizzi. However, he took them only at the end of last year, after a slow and surprising break with the Dutchman van Marwijk, who will eventually find himself in Russia, as a selector of Australia, after placement at the SP. As for the Saudi team for this first round match with Russia, we believe Pizzi will send nearly the same forces to the Italians and Germans recently.
Probable initial composition of Saudi Arabia: Al-Muaiouf – Al-Burayk, Os.Hawsawi, Om. Hawsawi, Al-Shahrani – Al-Faraj, Al-Shehri, Al-Jassim, Al-Dawsari – Al-Sahlawi
