Russia – Saudi Arabia : Preview & Prediction
Rusia did not prepare their World Cup at best, as the Russian team won only one victory over South Korea (4-2) in their eight preparation matches. The selection of Cherchesov, who draws 2 draws against Spain (3-3) and Turkey (1-1) and 3 defeats against Brazil (0-3), against France (1-3) and ahead Austria (0-1), will have to show a completely different face during this World Cup so as not to live a disillusionment and not leave chickens at the expense of Uruguay and Egypt. Saudi Arabia, presented as the weakest team in this group A, suffered some losses in their friendly matches namely against Iraq (1-4), Belgium (0-4), Italy ( 1-2) and Peru (0-3) in particular. The selection of the Spaniard Pizzi will try to do the best in a hen perhaps too raised for her. Saudi Arabia is returning to a World Cup, 12 years after its last participation, and the latter should lack experience at key moments.
Rusia begins its World Cup with Saudi Arabia and will not want to be missed in the first game … A victory of the Russians is imperative to launch their tournament.
Arabia Saudí has not participated in a World Cup since 2006.
Since 1994, date of its 1st World Cup, Saudi Arabia has a very negative record in this competition with 2 wins, 2 draws and 9 defeats.
Saudi Arabia is presented as the weakest selection in this group A.
Russia has experienced players such as Akinfeev, Dzagoev, Zhirkov, Smolov and others who could play an important role on this first date.
Russia has no alternative but a victory in its opening match against Saudi Arabia. The Russian people would not appreciate a poor performance against this modest selection.
