In qualifying for the World Championship, Nikolaos Kostenoglu's team does not change traditions, having the last place after four rounds. At the same time, one victory can turn into a takeoff for the Cypriots several positions up at once. The second Russia has three points more. However, such an alignment is possible, apparently, only in theory. In the last round Cyprus was beaten 0:3 by Malta.
Karpin failed to radically change the style and pattern of the team's game in such a short time, but the team looked pretty bold and especially in the first half it was under high pressure. The match began aggressively on both sides, but gradually the team's risk was minimized, resulting in a goalless draw. This result became strategically positive. Russia retained the second line in the group and did not allow Croatia to break away.
Mario Fernandez and Alexei Ionov, who were injured in the match with the Croats, did not fly to Nicosia, but players will most likely have time to recover by the duel with Malta.
We believe that hosts have no chance. Prediction is for Asian handicap (-1) for Russia. This bet can be placed for 1.77.
The Cyprus national team does not seek to play attacking football. The Cypriots traditionally rely on defense and make the game ahead as easy as possible. The Russian national team will obviously fight for three points, but at the same time, the Russians are unlikely to open up from the first minutes, fearing a resultant error, so in this meeting it is hardly worth counting on a scoring extravaganza.
Our second bet will be under 2.5 goals total. This bet can be placed for 1.90.
