Russia tesst against Turkey after embarrassing Euro 2016
The Russian national team and their Coach Tschertschessow are starting their preparation for the World Championship 2018 at home. The minimal goal for the worlds are the semifinals. But first Russia needs to erase the Euro 2016 from their minds. They will need to get better step by step. Opponent in Wednesday’s test match is Turkey. Turkey will start their mission world championship qualifications next Monday. Kick-off is August 31 at 7.15 PM.
Current form Turkey
Turkey wasn’t very satisfied with the Euro 2016. They now want to finish not worse than second in their group for the world championship qualifications. Turkey didn’t show bad football at the Euro, but they were lacking a little bit of luck against strong opponents. Lack of commitment and hooting against their top star Arda Turan showed that the Turkish fans were expecting more out of their team. Fatih Terim still seems to be the only man, who is able to get Turkey to the world championships. He is kind of a living legend in the Turkish football federation. But the currently ranked 19th of the FIFA world ranking doesn’t have the easiest qualification group. Among their opponents are Croatia and Euro quarter finalists Iceland.
Current form Russia
Russia is playing their first preparation game for the world championships at home and it will be interesting to see, if Tschertschessow can turn the team around. There definitely are several sites on the team of the former FC Tirol Coach that need improvement. Many of the teams’ players are already past their prime or are not competing on a top level regularly. Additionally there is only one real legionnaire on the team, namely Roman Neustädter who signed with Fenerbahce Istanbul this season. In the goal Russia can trust in Igor Akinfeev, who is not to blame for the downwards curve of the Russian team over the past few years. Lately the problems lay in the offensive game and in the goal scoring opportunities. Turkey will be an uncomfortable opponent and might be a good location determination for Russia.
Turkey will take the game as seriously as the Sbornaja and they will want to present themselves well in front of their fans. It’s hard to say whether new coach Tschertschessow will test a lot of new things, so it’s hard to give a prognosis. Our recommendation: Tip 1.
