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

Denis Cheryshev One of the unlikely heroes of Russias World Cup run, scoring four goals in the tournament despite starting it as a substitute.Artem Dzyuba Has continued the form he showed at the World Cup with seven goals in eight games so far this season for Zenit St Petersburg.Aleksei Ionov Back on the international scene after two years away, the Rostov winger will be looking to set Artem Dzyuba up in the middle.

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.

Cenk Tosun No goals yet this season for Everton, but the striker has scored 11 in 29 international appearances.Enes Unal Promising young forward who was originally with Manchester City until work permit issues forced him to head to La Liga.Cengiz Under Roma midfielder is another of the new generation of young Turkish talents looking to make their mark in Europes biggest leagues.

Friendly raws with Tunisia and Russia in June preceded the UEFA Nations League defeat to the latter, but they bounced back to beat Sweden 3-2 Emre Akbaba scoring twice late on to earn victory in a game Turkey had trailed 2-0 (Hakan Calhanoglu scored the other). Last time out, in a friendly in Rize, Turkey played out a goalless draw with Bosnia. While Turkeys defeat to Russia last month was their only loss in the whole of 2018, they have also only won of their last five matches.

Russia Team News, Updates and Facts

Both teams have scored in all of their last four though and their most recent competitive home international saw them concede 3 against Iceland so they clearly have vulnerabilities at the back. Russia scored 11 times at the World Cup and showcased far more firepower than anyone was expecting. However they have also only kept 1 clean sheet in their last 15 international matches overall and without a home crowd behind them, they are likely to be less of a force to be reckoned with.

They should get a strong reception in Sochi, and we expect the hosts to have enough to claim a huge three points here. We see the hosts doing that, and we think theyre well priced to beat a Turkey side who failed to win four of their five trips in World Cup qualifying. A win would be almost enough to confirm their promotion to the top flight, and secure a Euro 2020 play-off spot. The hosts have taken their matches on the road this autumn, as they look to build on the momentum that the World Cup brought.

Emre Akbaba was ruled out of the current Turkey squad through injury, but there were otherwise few changes from the defeat to Russia last time out. Ertugrul Ersoy and Mert Muldur made late substitute appearances in the draw with Bosnia their international debuts while Turkey opted to give Cenk Tosun and Enes Unal a half each up front. It seems likely only one will play again against Russia, with Tosun having been given the nod last month.

Last month, in Turkey, Denis Cheryshev gave Russia the lead and, after Serdar Azizs equaliser just before half-time, Artem Dzyubas goal early in the second period secured an away win. This will be the third time the two nations have met in 2018, having also drawn 1-1 in a friendly in June ahead of the World Cup Aleksandr Samedov scoring for the hosts before Yunus Malli equalised after the break. Turkey are yet to beat Russia since the break-up of the Soviet Union, with defeat in the reverse fixture making it three Russian wins and two draws in the five games they have played.

RUS vs TUR Betting Tips

Instead, Aleksandr Golovin who missed the win in Turkey returned to the starting line-up, while Guilherme was back in goal. Russia attracted headlines for the wrong reasons in the build-up to their match with Sweden, following news Aleksandr Kokorin had been arrested for assault. Daler Kuzyaev dropped to the bench on the wing, but could return to the starting line-up in place of Alexei Ionov. It should not have affected them on the pitch, therefore, as they continue to build on the back of their successful home World Cup. The striker has not played since March, however, with Artem Dzyuba having established himself as the countrys number one striker during Kokorins injury absence. Alan Dzagoev was not named in the match-day squad against Sweden, despite being ruled fit enough to be called up.

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.
