The Russians want to have a good moral before CM 2018
The hosts have no bothers for the Wednesday night match, but Martin Harnik (Hannover 96) and Zlatko Junuzović (Werder Bremen) are still missing, who have been retiring from the national team, even though they are only 30 years old. The guests will be missing Aleksandr Selikhov (Spartak Moscow), Ruslan Kambolov (Rubin Kazan), Viktor Vasin (CSKA Moscow), Georgi Dzhikiya (Spartak Moscow) and Aleksandr Kokorin (Zenit St. Petersburg), all being injured. Both teams played only two games this year, the Austrians winning both, and the Russians losing both. The last match was held on June 14, 2015, with Austria winning 1-0 in Russia (Marc Janko 33). Austria is slightly up and running, but Russia wants to get a positive result in Innsbruck to gain confidence in it before the final tournament. In my opinion, Russia will not lose in Austria, and the odds of 1.62 for an “X2” seem pretty sure.
