Russia vs Turkey
Russian and Turkish teams have often met in person in recent months. First, they played in a friendly match in Moscow before the home for the Russians world Cup in early June (draw 1:1). Then the teams fought in Trabzon in the match of the first week of the League of Nations in September (2:1 in favor of Russia). And now the teams will have a new meeting in which the fate of the winner of the Group 2 of League B of the new tournament from UEFA can finally be decided. If the Russian team wins, it is already 100% disengage from the continuation of the struggle for withdrawal from the group Turkish team. In this case, the Swedes will have only theoretical chances of success, which will be very difficult to translate into reality.
The stakes are very high for both teams, and the draw in this match, in fact, is not enough for both the team of Cherchesov and the wards of Lucescu. Especially the latter. Therefore, we should expect from this meeting of the game on the counter courses and as a result – goals scored. Yes, judging by the last matches of these opponents, who played 0:0 on Thursday, the expectation of effective football does not look justified. But if you dig deeper, it turns out that both teams are able to attack and score, and the first match between them in the League of Nations gave three goals, and even scored before the 50th minute.
I would also like to note the principled nature of this game for the guest coach. Lucescu, to put it mildly, did not manage to work in Russia, and a new visit to this country is a serious challenge for the Romanian specialist, who will try to set up his players to win as much as possible. Again – this is a factor in the "piggy Bank" expectations of effective football, because it is unlikely that the Russian team will abandon the active and double-edged game, if the Turks offer it to the hosts.
