San Marino vs Russia Prediction

Russia had every intention of keeping their winning streak alive the last match-day, as they took a hike to take on Cyprus. Their objectives were on full display, as right away the guests found the back of the net in the 9th minute, and later added one more in the 23rd minute. Then, the hosts were reduced to ten men on the pitch due to a red card, and the visitors took ample advantage of it.

Three more goals were added by the visiting contingent to complete their 0-5 scorecard.

Meanwhile, San Marino was flabbergasted by Scotland, in their latest fixture, which happened to be on the road. Three goals apiece in either half completely dismantled the guests and resulted in a 6-0 victory for the home team.

This Tuesday, keep note that while the Russians are one of the best in the group, their opposite number is the absolute worst of the lot. In fact, the level of San Marino has been such, that they have conceded 43 goals so far in the tournament, and have returned none. On the other hand, the Russians had their defense breached just four times, for which they slotted in a massive 27 goals into opposition nets.

Finally, Russia have overwhelmingly dominated h2h clashes for the past two decades and holds a 100% winning record in such games. In fact, they have not even conceded a goal in such fixtures.

Likely, we are in line for a massive performance by Russia, this Tuesday.
