Russia is not impressive!
The Russian team started with a 3-1 victory away to Malta. But the reviews I met about their game are more than critical.
Experts report that the team played extremely poorly with its gradual attacks.
They had to thank the Maltese goalkeeper for two of their goals.
In defense, they conceded a goal, which was the result of an individual mistake unforgivable for a professional football player.
Most likely, adjustments will be made now.
But while in defense no one doubts the potential of the Russian team, in attack they will most likely have difficulties again.
The reason is mainly in today's rival.
Slovenia is closing well!
Slovenia also won 1-0 at home against Croatia.
But what was more interesting was that after scoring a goal, they switched to defense with rare counterattacks.
And apparently this style suits them quite well. Because the Croats had almost no situation until the end of the match.
At the same time, Slovenia has never been famous for great opportunities in attack.
Forecast for Russia - Slovenia
For this match both teams are in good positions in the standings. As here, the leaders of the group meet.
Equality would certainly satisfy them completely.
And in the end, both Russia and Slovenia are defensively strong and offensively unconvincing.
A zero draw or someone's 1-0 victory is a very well-appreciated opportunity.
And I can afford it with a larger bet.
