Victory for World Cup (WC) 2018 hosts Russia in this one would see them move within a point of promotion, whilst simultaneously eliminating their visitors from contention.
After toiling to a goalless draw against Sweden in their second UEFA Nations League (UNL) Group 2 game, group leaders Russia enter this match unbeaten in five home matches (W2, D3), and unbeaten in five historical H2H encounters with visitors Turkey.
Turkey came from behind to beat group opponents Sweden 3-2 in their second UNL group game, attaining their first win in seven matches played away from Turkish soil.
The calendar year of 2018 has been poor overall for ‘The Crescent-Stars’. The nation that finished third at WC 2002 has now won only three of its nine games (W3, D4, L2), keeping just two clean sheets in the process.
This will be the third meeting between these two teams this calendar year, with each of the H2H matches played in 2018 ending level or being settled by a single goal margin. Each has also seen both teams score.
Players to watch: 30-year-old striker Artem Dzyuba hit his 15th national team goal in this group’s reverse fixture in Trabzon.
Emre Akbaba was the hero in his side’s solitary victory against Sweden with two last-gasp goals. The Galatasaray ace has scored two goals in six league games this season.
Stat attack: Turkey have kept just two clean sheets in their last 12 games in all competitions.
Six of the last eight matches involving Russia have seen over 2.5 goals scored.
The same applies to five of Turkey’s last seven matches (including friendlies).
Both teams have scored in four of the last five games involving Turkey.
