Russia vs Serbia Prediction & Match Preview

Russia vs Serbia
UEFA Nations League B
Date: Thursday, 3 September 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadion Dinamo.

Stanislav Cherchesov’s men have been enjoying a period of prosperity in the world of football in the past few years.

They surprised everyone with their deep run till the Quarter-Finals in the 2018 World Cup, which saw them despatch favorites Spain in the Round of 16. Thereafter, they also secured a second-place finish in their Euro Qualifiers, just below Belgium, in Group I.

Meanwhile, the Eagles missed out on the 2021 Euro Cup, after failing to finish in the top-two in Group B. Their defense had hugely let them down all through the contest, and by the looks of things, they still have not figured out a solution for it.

Going on, Cherchesov’s men also have a 100% unbeaten record against this opponent over the years, and they never once have failed to score in any h2h clash as well.

Likely, expect Russia to have the upper hand in this opening game this Thursday.

Russia vs Serbia: Prediction

Artem Dzyuba and his boys have been on a roll lately. They followed up their fantastic showing in the World Cup with a superb run in the Euro qualifying tournament.

In fact, barring Belgium, the team had a 100% winning record against every other squad in their group. They also had scored a total of 33 goals from their 10 fixtures, and conceded just eight in return.

On the other hand, Ljubisa Tumbakovic’s men not only failed to qualify for the Euros, but they also conceded a total of 17 goals from their 8 games, and their sole wins in the competition had come against minnows – Luxembourg and Lithuania.

On top of that, they also have a 100% winless record against this upcoming opponent, and they are still searching for their first clean sheet against them.

Taking all these observations into account, expect Russia to have a huge upper hand this Thursday.
