Finland – Russia
Finland will be looking to build upon their fantastic start to Group B by securing another 3pts against a Russian side that looked lackluster against Belgium. Russia went down 3-0 against Roberto Martinez’s side, while Finland’s 1-0 win over Denmark was overshadowed by the terrible events surrounds Cristian Eriksen, who thankfully is in a stable condition.
Finland did deserve their win in the end and that result has given the underdogs a serious chance of progressing through Group B but the Fins must make the most of their chances against this average Russian side. Russia didn’t seem motivated in their game against Belgium, perhaps their terrible record against the Red Devils irradicated any belief they had that they could take even a point from this game.
Both teams have scored in three of Finland’s last six international matches, while four of Russia’s last six matches have also ended with both teams getting on the scoreboard. Our prediction is for a draw and goal/goal.
