Russia will play against Serbia in UEFA Nations League and we got the Best Football Prediction for the match. The game is on Thursday, September 3 from 19:45 UK at VTB Arena.
The last time that Russia played was against San Marino and beat them 5:0. Five different players scored the goals – Daler Kuzyayev, Sergej Petrov, Aleksey Miranchuk, Aleksey Ionov, and Nikolay Komlichenko. A few days earlier Russia lost against Belgium 1:4. Before losing against the strong Belgium side the Russians won 4 matches in a row – Scotland 1:2, Kazakhstan 1:0, Scotland 4:0, and Cyprus 0:5.
The most goals from the current squad have their captain Artem Dzyuba with 24 goals. Their other attacking player Fyodor Smolov is with 14 goals. However, from the midfield, the highest-scoring player is Aleksei Ionov with only 4 goals.
Serbia’s last clash was against Ukraine and ended without a winner 2:2. The goals for the Serbian team was scored by Dusan Tadic and Aleksandar Mitrovic. Before that Serbian national team won 4 matches in a row including a friendly against Paraguay with 1:0. The other national teams against which they won were Luxembourg 1:3, Lithuania 1:2, and Luxembourg 3:2. Their last loss was at home against Portugal at 2:4.
Aleksandar Mitrović who scored 34 goals for Serbia will be available for this game. He plays for Fulham which is promoted via playoffs and will play in Premier League next season. Most goals from their midfielders have Dušan Tadić with 16 goals. Aleksandar Kolarov is also available and he has 11 goals for his country most of them from free kicks.
The favorite in the upcoming match is Russia. However, Serbia is not an underdog and no one will be surprised if they even win. That is why I expect the Balkan country to not lose against Russia. Best Football Prediction: Draw or Serbia
