The Russian national football team accomplished seemingly its best-ever result at a major event, as the team reached the World Cup 2018 quarter-finals defeating great Spain along the way, following there is a lot of confidence among Russian fans. Another quarter-final is now the very least that the majority of fans expect from Euro 2020. We have noted down a preview of Russia in Group B ahead of Euro 2020.
At the end of 2020 a six-game winless streak, with 11 goals conceded and only four goals scored, exposed many of Russia’s issues. In the knock-out stages there is a potential for another spot if Stanislav Cherchesov can solve problems, with a slight probability of surpassing the fans’ hopes and making it to the final eight.
Having to play what could be the most important game of the group stage against Denmark at their home ground in Copenhagen, followed by a possible matchup with one of Germany, France, Portugal, or Spain, definitely dampens that degree of optimism.
This summer, honestly Russia’s chances of winning the football tournament is optimistic. We think Russia doesn’t have a chance against Belgium. In the meetings, the Sbornaya conceded seven goals against the FIFA’s highest-ranked team in Euro qualification in 2019.
This seems to be the only game in which Russia can secure themselves three points and Finland is considered the side to beat. Denmark in Copenhagen will be the true litmus test. The two teams are comparable in terms of tactical strategy. Danes have more quality in possession, which could give them the advantage and appear to be in superior physical shape.
There is no guarantee that Russia will qualify with three points, and if it is four, the next encounter against one of the big boys will very certainly be their last in the tournament.
