Spain vs Russia Today’s Soccer Prediction
But Russia’s national team was so hopeless against Uruguay that the hopes of the Russian fans for a place in the quarter-finals in the single-digit percentage range should be.
This is known by Russia coach Stanislaw Chertschessow, who was disappointed with his team’s poor performance in the third round of matches. “We made it too easy for Uruguay because we made too many mistakes.”Such as goalkeeper Igor Akinfejew, who received a Suarez free kick after 10 minutes in his goalkeeper corner. Or Igor Smolnikov, who had to leave the pitch after only 37 minutes with yellow-red.The performance against rip-off South Americans but also revealed relentlessly that the Russians may not be as strong as after the two clear victories against Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
Nevertheless, the Russians can already be satisfied with the World Cup performance. Before the tournament, the team was heavily criticized and the pessimists even went out of three preliminary rounds.
Now holds the Sbornaja in two wins with what she has reached the knockout stages. This one is already successful once in 2014 – then was already after the group stage final.Against the Furia Roja in the Moscow Luschniki Stadium – where Russia’s World Cup trip began on June 14 with a 5-0 draw against Saudi Arabia – the Russians smell their chance. They dream of moving into the quarterfinals.
Where it all started, it should not end now. That it takes for the rise but a performance increase, is clear to all. Chertschessow: “We have to play better against Spain. We know this. But in a game you always have a chance. “Especially if Spain faces the Russians as uninspired, sluggish and sedate as in the last group match against Morocco.
In any case, the bookmakers are convinced that the Spaniards will continue for at least one round. The Roja is considered in a duel with the host as a big favorite as the odds show.
But: The so far last meeting between Spain and Russia brought a varied 3: 3. With such a result, all winning tips for Spain would be lost.

Spain won smoothly 3-0 and came into the final. In the end, the Spaniards took the title.Thus, a K.o. Rundenduell with the Russian bear could turn out to be a good omen.
