Predictions and chances

Saudi Arabia and Russia is a couple of lowest ranked sides now. Experts feel that this match will most likely decide who ranks third in the group as they feel that Uruguay’s coasting in this group with Egypt being a better side. However, at a stage like a soccer world cup one never knows.

While some experts say that Russia will beat Saudi Arabia, some say that this would be tough as Juan Antonio Pizzi of Saudi Arabia is an excellent coach.

The key figures of the both the teams

Russia’s chances of doing well depend on:
  • Stanislav Chercheso – He’s an ex Russia international goalkeeper and is coaching the side in this world cup. He is known for his dour defensive style, and a change in this may help Russia.
  • The hosts are also going to hope that Fedor Smolov, its forward, can recreate the goal he scored when they played New Zealand in their first game victory in the FIFA Confederations Cup of 2017.
  • Another experienced played that Russia is banking on is Igor Akinfeev, who is captaining the side. He has represented his country 100 times.
Saudi Arabia’s campaign depends much on:
  • Juan Antonio Pizzi – He is the side’s Argentinian-born coach. He took over Saudi Arabia in November of 2017, following his coaching tenure with Chile ended.
  • Two other influential figures of Saudi Arabia are Fahad Al Muwallad and Mohammad Al-Sahlawi. Mohammad Al-Sahlawi’s Fast feet and rare turns of pace might make him a decisive factor in how Saudi Arabia does.


Lineups of both teams will be updated soon after the official announcement.
