Russia – Turkey : Preview & Prediction
In this Group 2 League B, the final outcome could be played this Sunday … A Russia victory over Turkey could send the host country of the last World Cup to the next round of the League of Nations. The 1/4 finalist of the last World Cup has just been hooked by Sweden (0-0) at home on Thursday but keeps the top of the group thanks to a previous success in Turkey (2-1) on September 7th. Between these two days of the League of Nations, the Russian selection had squirmed the Czech Republic (5-1) in a friendly match. Turkey was ill-prepared for this tricky move to Russia as Lucescu’s side was hooked by Bosnia-Herzegovina (0-0) on Thursday in a friendly match. Turkey have a second game without defeat after a previous success in Sweden (3-2) on the 2nd day of the League of Nations. Less successful outside, Turkey could lose its last chance of qualifying in Sochi this weekend!
