For the hosts, this meeting is another challenge, and for the guests – nothing special. Russia will not gain much experience in the game with San Marino. The coveted second place is taken, and there is nothing more to strive for in this selection.
It is worth paying attention to the goal scored by the hosts in the previous round against Kazakhstan. For them, this is an event that will add courage in the future. At the same time, Russia slightly undermined its confidence with a defeat from Belgium in the home field. Fans and footballers had too high expectations for this match.
A wave of criticism hit hard on the players of the Russian national team, so this time do not expect the defeat of San Marino. I believe that the guests will not start this match with intense pressure on the hosts and put on TU (2.5) goals in the first half of the meeting.
