Cyprus vs Russia Prediction & Tips
To qualify for the final tournament, next to Belgium, Russia moves to the match with number 8, in
Cyprus, where it will face the host country. The match will take place at the “GSP Stadium” in Nicosia and will start at 17:00, Russia needing only an equal result to be sure of the second position in this group.
Cyprus occupies the 3rd position in Group I, having 10 points, 3 victories, 1 draw and 3 defeats. He climbed well in the standings, having obtained the last 7 points in the previous 3 games played. The good series started with a draw, at home, with Kazakhstan, score 1: 1, followed by 2 wins, 4: 0 with San Marino and 2: 1, overtaking, with Kazakhstan.
He was led to the break in the game in Kazakhstan, managing to return the result in the last 20 minutes of play, through goalkeeper Sotiriou and left defender Ioannou.
Russia is in second position in this group, having 18 points, being 3 points behind Belgium, the first team already qualified in the final tournament. He has 6 victories in a row in this group, which he started with a defeat with Belgium, scoring 3: 1, then succeeding twice to defeat Kazakhstan and Scotland and once against Cyprus and San Marino.
It comes after the categorical victory, 4: 0, with Scotland, a victory coming on its own ground, in which Dzyuba scored a double, Ozdoev and Golovin succeeding the other successes of the Russians.
In the game in Russia, the hosts won thanks to a goal scored by Ionov in the 38th minute of the match, a match in which the Cypriots failed to send any shots on the opponent’s side.
Russia comes after 6 wins in a row, 1.53 is the odds for Russia’s victory.
5 of these 6 victories came without a goal, 1.55 is the odds for Russia win to zero.
3 of the last 5 matches played by Cyprus were with at least 3 goals scored, 1.95 is the odds for over 2.5 goals.
When I saw the surprise of the Czechs in their own country with England, I thought that this may be the kind of game that can produce a surprise among the bettors. I will not go this far, but the stakes will be shaped around the Cypriot team that I trust can make a mark. Russia comes to Nicosia with the accounts almost completed, needing these points to be safe, but things are mostly settled anyway. Cyprus has not shown bad so far, however, accumulating 10 points and being even on the 3rd place. 13 to 7 is the Cypriot goaltending that can be increased tonight with another success, having a pretty high chance if we think about the selected guest can approach a more relaxed game.
