In the last match, they have won (9‑0) at home against San Marino, after in the previous round they have won (0‑4) in an away match against Kazakhstan.

No big surprises, the home manager should opt for a strategy based on keeping possession and the paused attacks: Aleksandr Golovin owns great pass quality and game vision. Artem Dzyuba is Russia's top scorer in this competition, with 5 goals scored. For this game, coach Stanislav Cherchesov can count on all his players.

Confirmed Lineup: Guilherme, F. Kudryashov, A. Semenov, M. Fernandes, G. Dzhikiya, A. Ionov, M. Ozdoev, Anton Miranchuk, R. Zobnin, A. Golovin, A. Dzyuba.

In the last round, they have lost an away match against Scotland by (2‑1).

Cyprus come to this game with a 2-1 away defeat to Scotland, registering the second straight loss in this competition: Kousoulos scored the team's only goal. In this away match against Russia, coach Ran Well Shimon should approach a more cautious style of play with a medium-low block, as his opponents often perform well at home. The striker Pieros Sotiriou is one of the great highlights of the Cypriots with 2 goals signed to this moment. For this game the manager does not have great absences to register.

Betting suggestion:

Russia are one of the best teams in Group I in this 2020 European Championship Qualifiers, very strong offensively, dynamic and fast in counterattacks. In addition, the Russian national team also display enormous competence in the game model and play next to their fans, that is, they should give it all to conquer the three points. In this way, we believe the hosts will finish the 1st stage at an advantage.
