Tip Reasoning

  • Russia are unbeaten in seven of their eight games during this World Cup Qualifying cycle.
  • Cyprus failed to score in six straight away games ahead of this.
  • Cyprus lost each of the last three H2Hs without scoring.

Ruthless Russia to pour it on

With just two games remaining in Group H, Russia will look to put bottom-ranked Cyprus out of their misery here while giving themselves an advantage for their final game. Indeed, a victory here will mean that Russia will only need to at least draw against Croatia in their final game to automatically qualify for the World Cup. Consequently, Russia will be going all guns blazing to extend their current four-game winning streak for the three points here.

We have tipped a handicap-busting win for the Russians as they are the only side with anything to play for, just one of the last seven opposition sides kept them from scoring and they have a solid return of four clean sheets from their last five outings. Conversely, Cyprus found the net in just one of their last seven games and that was against Group H minnows, Malta.

Topically, four of Cyprus’ last five defeats eclipsed a -1 handicap for the opponents on the day whilst three of those saw the Cypriots concede at least thrice. Furthermore, Cyprus have nothing left to play for in this group apart from the honour of finishing above Malta and as such, we are tipping a convincing 3-0 home win as the Russians look to march on towards Qatar 2022.
