Russia – Serbia: who is the favorite?
Russia and Serbia have recently crossed paths only in friendly matches, and the Russians have not suffered a single defeat in them, but who will be stronger in an official meeting – you will find the answer in the forecast. What to expect from teams?
The Russian national team had an excellent selection for the European Championship – the team of Stanislav Cherchesov got a ticket to the tournament. In their group, the Russians were second, losing the podium to the Belgian national team – the teams shared six points in the table. It is noteworthy that in 10 matches Russia won eight victories, having suffered two defeats from the main favorite of the group.
As for the last draw of the League of Nations, then the results were much more modest. The group with Turkey and Sweden did not succeed. The Russian national team finished in second place, four points ahead of the Turks, and the Russians lost to the leader of Sweden only due to additional indicators – both teams scored seven points.
Russia played its last official match back in the middle of November last year, when it was possible to beat San Marino with a score of 5: 0 . As for the application of the national team, it makes sense to note potential debutants – for the first time, Evgeny Lutsenko from Arsenal Tula and Andrey Mostovoy from Zenit were in the national team .
The Serbian national team failed the selection for the European Championship. The national team under the leadership of Mladen Krstaich started in the selection, but he worked only three fights, the key was the match with Ukraine in Lviv, where the Serbs got five goals into their own gates. The leadership of the federation did not hesitate to resign, and Lyubisha Tumbakovic became the new mentor .
Under his leadership, the team’s results improved markedly, but in the end failed to break through to the Euro. The White Eagles finished in third place in the group, losing to Portugal by three points. And the leader of Ukraine gets six points. In the last official match, Serbia scored a 2: 2 draw with Ukraine, extending the unbeaten streak to five matches.
The teams met four times in friendly matches and Russia did not lose in any of these matches – two wins and two draws
Russia has won eight victories in the last nine matches
Russia has scored fewer than four goals in only one of its last four matches
Serbia has achieved just two wins in the last six away games
The Russian national team will start in a new draw of the League of Nations, where they probably expect to achieve success – there are no frankly weak teams in the quartet, so in home matches the Russians will clearly strive only for victory. Cherchesov’s line-up is already played and works like clockwork, the Serbs have no advantage in the class, the White Eagles are vulnerable away, the hosts have all the chances to get three points.
We believe the hosts have a better chance of winning. Forecast – Asian handicap (0) for Russia . In 1xBet such an outcome is offered with odds of 1.81
