Austria: Five wins in a row ( Recent Form: W W W W W )
Austria had to accept both Serbia, Ireland and Wales during the World Cup qualifying and will therefore be absent on the final round this summer. Nevertheless, the alpine country can look to the future with confidence, because the selection of national coach Franco Foda is with five victories in a row working on a nice series. Upcoming Wednesday night, Das Team hopes to be able to tie World Cup organizer Russia to the trophy for its own public. Most countries that grab a World Cup ticket use this interland period to test new players. Austria is no exception, even if the well-known names are just as well. Main trendsetters are of course attacker Marko Arnautovic (West Ham United), who can look forward to the interest of Manchester United, and midfielder David Alaba (Bayern Munich). However, Alaba is not completely fit, so chances are that he will let the practice match against Russia pass by. “That would be a shame,” said captain Julain Baumgartlinger (Bayer Leverkusen). ‘However, we have confidence in our entire selection. We use a certain game system, which is decisive for us. Every player knows what is expected of him. ” By the way, Austria is also practicing against Germany and Brazil early next month, so Russia-home seems the only realistic chance to win a victory.
Russia: Defensively vulnerable ( Recent Form: D L D L L )
Russia was, of course, automatically hosted for the World Cup as a host country and in the past period, therefore, has mainly focused on friendly international matches. With only one victory in the last eight games you can wonder if Sbornaya is ready for the World Cup, although the Russians made it their own with Argentina (0-1), Spain (3-3), Brazil (0-3) and France (1-3) as most recent opponents is very difficult. It is well known that you have to take results from friendly international matches with a large grain of salt, but we can conclude that Russia, especially in the defensive sense, sometimes wants to drop a stitch. A lot of time to put the proverbial points on the national coach Stanislav Cherchesov, because after the game against Austria, the country has only one practice match against Turkey, before on June 14 against Saudi Arabia the opening match of the World Cup in front of the door state. The expectation is that the visitors will play at least one half with their intended World Cup base.
THE BETTING VERDICT:
After all, we expect both teams to be offensive and courageous. Strategies such as “get no goals only” or “just do not lose” should not be on the agenda. Despite the importance of the game, both teams can quite easily go into the game and will seek their salvation, especially on the offensive. So both teams should shoot at least one goal. We bet our bet on the bet of over 2 goals.
Austria VS Russia
O/U Pick: Over 2 goals
