Football prediction tips for Russia – Belgium
In a pretty big football derby in the beautiful city of St. Petersburg, Russia welcomes Belgium in a pretty important fixture from Group I of the European qualifiers. The result from this game could possibly change the leader in this group.
The leader right now is Belgium. The Red Devils are on top with 24 points, being 3 points ahead of Russia. If Sbornaya beat their opponent with a result which betters Belgium’s 3-1 win, they will climb up at top.
Russia are continuing their fine performance from the World Cup in their country, when they reached the 1/4-finals of the competition. Since the beginning of the European qualifiers, Russia are perfect, except of their defeat against Belgium in Brussels.
Since this defeat on Belgian soil, Stanislav Cherchesov’s team is enjoying a run of seven consecutive wins in the group. In these seven games Russia scored 27 goals and conceded just 4.
In the same time for Belgium the qualifying campaign is going just perfect – 8 wins from 8 matches played for Roberto Martinez’ team.
Belgium are in a position which allows them to even draw in St. Petersburg on Saturday and remain at the top of the group. Of course, they could remain on top even if they lose, but with a result which allows this.
In October Belgium made a good preparation for this crucial game, winning both games against San Marino and Kazakhstan. In these two games the Red Devils scored 8 goals as well. In these two matches the Red Devils were without their star striker Romelu Lukaku, but now the Inter Milan target man is ready to come back in action.
