Turkey vs Russia Preview
The start of Russia in FIFA World Cup 2018 warm up is not much impressive as they lost their 1st game against Australia by 1-0 and that is really a question mark on the performance of this team. Last time Russia tasted victory 6 matches before. Even with the home ground advantage, the Russian side is still struggling and they need to focus more on their fitness and form together to enter in the event officially with lots of confidence.
On the other side, the opposition of Russia in this match, Turkey is much aggressive and having confidence before entering in the FIFA World Cup as they have won their last back to back four matches. They are doing better job than Russia or any other Asian team.
Russia opted to meet some giant teams like Argentina, Spain, France and Brazil that led them to the end where defeat welcomed them. This shows that host Russia is not meeting the standard of being a dangerous and strongest team having besides the home advantage.
Somehow Turkey too have some lacks in their team, like their defensive version is too weak, but yet the Russian form is not even eligible to give a tough time Turkey. The Turkish team has scored two goals in their last three meetings regarding the international friendlies.
