Russia vs. Serbia Match Analysis and Prediction

The UEFA Nations League is back in action after the halt due to the coronavirus pandemic. Kicking off the campaign is side Russia as they lock horns with Serbia in the Group B3 fixture. The match schedules for Thursday with kickoff at 6:45 pm.

It is a do-or-die match for both sides fighting for a spot in Group A. The two sides join the race with Turkey and Hungary in the same group. Winners from the matches earn a spot in the coming 2022-23 championship.

Despite having high hopes for the clash, there are still high hopes for the 24-nation tournament next year. This remains the main target for Stanislav Cherchesov and Ljubis Tumbakovic to mark history for the country.

The inaugural Nations League pitched Russia against sides Turkey and Sweden. The side failed for automatic promotion by only one solitary goal. Serbia went through six matches in the buildup against sides Lithuania, Montenegro, and Romania. The side registered four wins and two draws that secured their stay at the top of the group with two points.

Serbia will be newcomers to the group with a lot to do to proceed past the group stages for automatic promotion. The sides will be building momentum for the Euro 2020 scheduled next month against side Norway.

Savic will be hoping to gain his spot in the midfielder after starting as a substitute. With Stefan Mitrovic coming at the heart of the defense, this might force Kolarov to assume his role as a left-back.
