Russia to Win with Handicap (-1)

It's clear and obvious that Russia is the favourite in this match, with a good reason. The team is much better on paper than Cyprus and Cyprus enters this game after losing to Malta 3-0 in the previous round. So, Russia will win this game and we expect them to do it convincingly, by at least two goals. After all, the last match between these two teams ended with a 5-0 Russia win.

Russia to Lead at Half Time

Since we expect Russia to win this match in a convincing manner, we also expect them to lead at half time. The odds on Russia leading at half time are solid, but you can also bet on Russia leading at half time and winning at the end if you want to boost those odds a bit more while taking a bit of a risk on.

Over 2.5 Total Goals

Neither of these two teams plays a lot of high-scoring matches – only two of the last five matches played by both teams have gone over 2.5 total goals. That being said, we expect to see at least three goals in this game since we expect Russia to score at least two or even three goals by themselves.

Cyprus vs Russia preview: Can Cyprus surprise us all?

The small Island in the Mediterranean Sea will have to wait a while until they finally appear in a major international competition, if that ever happens at all. Cyprus is one of the weakest teams in Europe and that was proven a few days ago when they were convincingly beaten by Malta, a nation from an even smaller island. In any case, Cyprus has four points from the first four matches in the group and they are still theoretically in play for one of the top two spots.

After a poor performance in Euro 2020 in which they failed to get out of their group, Russia will now focus on getting to the biggest stage of world football – the 2022 World Cup. They are currently sharing the top spot in Group H of the WC Qualifiers with Croatia after the first four rounds. So far, Russia has two wins, one draw, and one loss.
