Our Prediction:

Russia will win

Turkey – Russia Match Prediction | 12-09-2019 08:30

Their impressive form in September shows their potential, as they followed up a victory in Turkey by hammering the Czech Republic 5-1 at home. On top of that, the hosts have won three of those five encounters, and they are chasing a fourth victory this weekend. Turkey head to Sochi having failed to win any of their last five meetings with Russia.

The visitors missed out on a trip to Russia in the summer, but they arent unfamiliar with this weekends opponents. Back then, Russia looked like doomed hosts of the World Cup, but they managed to kick on during the summer, and they followed that up with a win in their rematch. This is the third meeting between the pair in 2018, after they drew in a pre-World Cup friendly. Meanwhile, Turkey managed to get back on track with a win over Sweden in the Nations League, but claiming a victory in this trip is going to be difficult.

The World Cup hosts have build on their summer success and are now chasing promotion to the top flight of European nations. Russia narrowly lead Turkey in their Nations League group at the half-way stage. Can they kick on after that setback and claim three points in their final home game of the campaign? However, they missed a huge opportunity when they drew 0-0 with Sweden in midweek. All three teams have played three games, with Russia the only one yet to lose.

This Fridays match sees Turkey and Russia enter the UEFA Nations League. The pair find themselves in League B, Group 2 along with Sweden and it should be a pretty competitive group given it does contain two World Cup Quarter-Finalists. The sides played out a draw only three months ago so they should be pretty familiar with each other and it has the makings of a close game.

Artem Dzyuba His goal against Turkey when the two countries last met was his 15th for Russia, having established himself as their leading striker during the World Cup.Denis Cheryshev The break-out star of Russias run to the World Cup quarter-finals, and a goalscorer in Turkey too.Aleksandr Golovin Monaco playmaker returned to the side last time out, and will hope to build on his own form at the World Cup which included a goal and two assists in the opening game.

Correct Score Prediction: Russia 2-1 Turkey

They had a positive record during the preparation with 5 victories and 4 defeats, but from our point of view, they didnt show their real face. Aleksey Shved and Timofey Mozgov are the two biggest stars in the Russian team, but we have to add that the rest of the core is sustained by experienced players who play in the domestic league, mostly in CSKA Moscow. Russia is a mystery. They are relying on a high number of points without actually putting too much effort on the defensive end. It means that they know each other very well.

Somehow they found the way to win(!) 2-3, with Emre Akbaba scoring twice in the dying minutes of the match. Their defeat to Russia at home last month is their only one in their last eight matches. The other day, they hosted Bosnia and Herzegovina in a friendly match, which ended without goals. Turkey had some wild four days last month. On the other hand, against BiH, on Thursday, they kept their first clean sheet in seven games. They lost at home, won away, making them a super difficult team to read. They lost 1-2 at home to Russia on their Nations League debut, and then were losing 2-0 in Sweden early in the second half.

A home double header in October looked like a huge chance for the Russians to kick on and establish themselves top of the pile. The hosts have looked to boost their profile in the light of their run to the last eight in the summer, and theyve claimed two wins and a draw since their exit to Croatia back in July. They made the perfect start, following up their World Cup heroics with a 2-1 win away to Turkey. However, will that form take them to a victory on Sunday?

Turkey had a rather dismal campaign in the World Cup Qualifications, but certain improvements can be noticed under Mircea Lucescu. The team head into this with a streak of four games without a loss, but the Romanian manager has reasons to be worried with his defensive line which shipped five goals in last three friendlies against teams like Montenegro, Iran and Tunisia.
