Before the first match of Kazakhstan and Russia the atmosphere in the group I was wary. Russia then lost to Belgium, and Kazakhstan sensationally defeated Scotland.
Right to mistake the Russians did not have, but even artificial turf in Kazakhstan did not prevent the Russians to defeat the rival with the score 4:0. Now the victory over the Kazakhs will almost wards of cherchesova on the Euro. Will the Russians take another step that will bring the team to exit the Euro?
- The coefficients and forecast
The Russian team is coming to the 6th round in second place, ahead of Kazakhstan on 5 points. In the last round Russia played away against Scotland and managed to win with the score 2:1, interrupting a long-running series the Celts unbeaten in his field.
Goal scored by Dzyuba for which this exact shot was the sixth this qualification, and it is second only to the Israeli Zahavi. Note and Zhirkov goal. He really was recorded as an own goal from Scot O’donnell.
But Zhirkov took in the goal of active participation. And it once again underlines the genius of Stanislav Cherchesov, who has put in a stock of his wand Cheryshev and put instead Zhirkov. And despite the fact that Zhirkov is already 36.
But it is actually easy to explain. Cheryshev is not getting match practice in Valencia and still not played a single full match, but Zhirkov in “Zenith” played in all matches this season and managed 1 goal.
Note the discipline and dedication of the Russian team, which is inherent in the team at the Top. The team beats on the field for the result of the highest-scoring team in qualification, scoring 17 goals in 5 matches, shot down such giants as France, Germany and Spain.
Kazakhstan has never played one FIFA world cups, no Euros. In the last qualifiers for the continental championship Kazakhs higher than 5th place was not raised and more than 2 victories never won.
So the current performance of Kazakhstan is likely to become the best in the history of performances in the qualifiers for Euro. The team approaches the match with the Russian team in third place, winning during the tournament of San Marino and Scotland. But still experience the Kazakhs is not enough and the team lost to group leaders Russia and Belgium with a total score of 0:7.
In the last round of Kazakhstan played away against Cyprus, and despite a quick goal in the second minute, the team failed to win, and gradually handed the initiative to the Cypriots who had some real chances to score. In the end, draw 1:1, which does not accept neither Kazakhstan nor of Cyprus.
It is interesting that Kazakhstan has never scored for the Russian team. In the three meetings between these teams the total score was 10:0 in favor of Russians and there are serious doubts that Kazakhs will be able to “soak” the account, given the complete lack of chances in the home match against Russia.
Compared to the first match will not play in the match team defender Suyumbaev, who will miss the game through suspension.
The coefficients and forecast
The Russian team shows good football and is moving steadily to meet the Euro. In fact, Kazakhstan is the last major obstacle on the way to the continental championship.
In the first match of these teams Russia confidently beat Kazakhs with the score 4:0 and there is no reason to believe that out of Kazakhstan will be able to impose at least some intrigue. Most likely, Russia will win a landslide victory, and the film will add to their scoring margin.
