Russia vs Slovenia: Predictions and Betting Tips
Russia won their first match beating 1-3 to Malta
Russia, along with Croatia, is the leading team to finish first or at least second in their group.
After Arshavin, Roman Pavlyuchenko, Akinfeev.. etc., the Russian squad has lacked some talented players over the last decade, but in the last few years, some interesting players have emerged, such as Golovin, Miranchuk, or Suleymanov.
Slovenia surprised everyone with a 1-0 win over Croatia in their opening match.
The last World Cup that Slovenia played was in South Africa in 2010, where the Slovenian team was eliminated in the first round.
Slovenia goes into this match knowing that there are three teams that theoretically are better than them, this can help them to play without the pressure of having to win by obligation.
- The last three matches of Russia ended with four or more total goals
- Seven consecutive official matches without losing for Slovenia
- Russia has conceded at least one goal in four of their last five games
- The last match between both teams was in 2009 and Slovenia won 1-0.
Russia vs Slovenia Predictions
We think Russia is a few steps above Slovenia. The Slovenian team is a bit stagnant in the last few years while the Russians have improved notably, also, Russia plays in their home, so it will be even more difficult for Slovenia to beat them.
In terms of goals, Russia is a team that attacks a lot but also leaves a lot of gaps in defense that could be exploited by the Slovenians. So we think that both teams could score.
