Russia takes on the visitors Spain at “Krestovsky Stadium” in a friendly clash. The game will be played in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday, November 14th.
Judging from the Russian A-team’s results in 2017, the upcoming hosts of the 2018 FIFA World Cup have not many chances for the successful performance on the Mundial. Stanislav Cherchesov’s side conducted 10 matches in this season, having got three victories, three draws and four defeats in them. Last Saturday the Russians were broken 0:1 by Argentina, having showed quite solid defense due to the efforts applied by Igor Akinfeev and defenders with almost complete ignoring of attacking possibilities while it is quite obvious that it is impossible to win without scored goals.

Having failed the UEFA EURO 2016, afterwards Spain has not been beaten across 15 encounters in a row since the 1st of September 2016. During that period Julen Lopetegui’s side earned 12 triumphs and three draws. The Spaniards come up to the forthcoming battle with six-game winning streak with 22:1 aggregated score, having recorded five clean-sheets in the latest clashes which makes up 474 minutes of football. The Spanish A-team is one the favourites of the upcoming Mundial and has to prove it, especially bearing in mind that the Argentines have broken Russia recently and now it is a matter of principle to keep the rival’s pace.
Russia and Spain met four times in their history resulting in single draw and three victories of “La Furia Roja” with 8-1 goal difference in favour of the Spaniards. At this point the visitors’ football class is much higher, therefore, even at away field they keep great chances for extending the winning run.
Prediction for the match: Spain to win.
