San Marino hosts Russia in round 10 of Euro qualification. The match will be played on Tuesday, November 19th at San Marino Stadium (Serravalle)
San Marino is the weakest team in Europe. The main thing is not victory - the main one is participation. San Marino plays by this very principle. The hosts conceded 46 goals (an average of 5 per round), but they finally managed to score in the match against Kazakhstan. Will they repeat? No. Despite the disastrous results on the road, San Marino looks relatively good at home and doesn’t concede more than four goals. Over the past 20 games at home, this happened only twice – against Norway and Germany.

"Your expectations are your problems." Initially, it was not worth hoping for something in a duel against the Belgian national team. It is not clear where such optimism came from. The home field did not help, and Cherchesov's squad conceded four goals (three in the first half), but they could have conceded more. There is a huge gap between the leading national teams and the Russians. This is the real level. But they know how to play against Scotland, Cyprus and San Marino. And this is not cynicism, you just need to understand - the visitors are the average team in Europe. It will be very difficult for Dzyuba and his comrades to fight for something serious next year. What doubts can be about this game? In the first round match, San Marino allowed nine goals. Given that this meeting turns into a simple formality, Stanislav Salamovich will probably give a chance to players who do not often appear on the pitch.
The question is only one - how many goals we will see from Russia? Yes, they scored five times in the game against the Cypriots. The mood after Belgium is not very good, but will Russia rehabilitate in front of the fans with the help of San Marino? We will surely see four or five goals. Will there be more? Bookmakers do not particularly believe in the defeat of six or seven goals. I probably agree. This game has become an empty formality. It makes sense to consider a small number of goals of Cherchesov's squad, which still has a lot of work to do before Euro 2020.
Prediction for the match: Russia to score under 6.0 goals
