Match Preview

Russia will be hoping to carry on with their captivating World Cup form when take on Turkey in the massive UEFA Nations League clash on Friday. The host of this summer's intercontinental tournament defied odds to go all the way to the quarterfinals before being eliminated by eventual runners-up Croatia.

Having entered the competition as the least ranked nation, the magnanimity of this feat cannot be understated. On Friday, Stanislav Cherchesov will field some familiar faces who shone at the World Cup with the optimism of getting a win in his first UNL appearance.

Denis Cheryshev, who bagged four goals at the World Cup, is in the squad and could be in the mix in attack alongside the likes of Artem Dzyuba and Aleksandr Golovin. With Russia netting in all but one of its last six outings, these individuals could feature in the scoring for the visitors on Friday.

The opponent Cherchesov’s men face, however, will be subtly fazed by this bit of statistic as they have proved to be a very formidable opponent at home. Turkey is unbeaten in 16 out of its last 18 appearances and have scored in eight of its last nine matches.

Top striker Cenk Tosun could be aiming to be on the scoresheet again having managed five goals in his last seven appearances for Mircea Lucescu's side. A keen eye should also be kept in AS Roma starlet Cengiz Under who is slowly climbing the ladder to stardom with a series of fascinating performances.

Ahead of Friday’s game, a close and exciting runout should be anticipated with three points up for grabs this time around. The last encounter between Turkey and Russia which took place prior to the beginning of the World Cup ended in a 1-1 draw.

This evidently does not tell the whole story of how domineering the latter is in such meetings. On a head to head basis, the Sbornaya has been victorious in 14 out of 18 matches, losing and drawing two times apiece. A total of 37 goals has been scored by them in these meetings and the 2018 World Cup quarterfinalist has conceded just seven in all.

Key Facts

  • Russia remains undefeated in its last four meetings with Turkey (W2 D2).

  • Turkey is yet to lose a game in 2018. They have recorded two wins and three draws.

  • Russia has conceded at least a goal in 12 of its last 13 matches.
