Russia vs Saudi Arabia Preview

Expect a low-key, drab opening game for the 2018 World Cup. Russian football at possibly its lowest ebb in its entire history, caused partially by the breakup of the old Soviet state. However I fully expect the home side to go through. They are a very physical team and although they have got some injury problems, buoyed by a partisan home crowd I think Russia will win. Their physical strength and greater experience will see them through.

Final score prediction: 2-0

Odds   Russia 4/9     Draw 17/5      Saudi Arabia 9/1

Best Bet Fedor Smolov First goal scorer 23/10
