Russia vs Scotland PREVIEW & PREDICTION 10/10/2019

On October 10, from 19:45 pm, the international stage brings us an interesting match in the Euro 2020 preliminaries, between Russia and Scotland. The hosts from Moscow are favorites to win, in front of a formation that has quality players in the lot, ahead of Andy Robertson.

The Russians are very difficult to defeat on their own ground and have a good pass game, in which the young Golovin, a footballer who impressed at the CM 2018, is noticeable. After 5 consecutive wins in Group I, Russia seems a solid rival for the Scots, he still hopes to qualify for the Euro. Without failure on their own ground since the last world championship, the host players start favorites.

If the victory does not succeed, Scotland‘s chances of going to the final tournament become small. As a result, visitors are forced to attack and risk, which could be harmful on the defensive side. This is why we expect a first round of pitches, in which the hosts will not force too much, while the Scots will try to keep the ball in possession. It will be interesting to watch the huge striker Artem Dzyuba, who has registered each time in the previous 7 qualifying matches. Russia has imposed itself every time! Comparatively, Scotland has lost the last three consecutive games and does not boast of great morale.

There have been 17 matches since the last international draw of the Scots, for which a point is not enough. Without impressing on the move, the guests need a perfect performance in Moscow, being 5th in group I (two wins in 6 matches and 5-13 goalscoring). Russia has 15 points, three less than the leader Belgium, and the next one is, surprisingly, Kazakhstan (3rd place, with 7 points). Cyprus is also 7 points above Scotland. In the last three straight matches between Scotland and Russia, two matches were drawn and once they won the red and white. We expect again a close match, probably decided on a single goal difference.
