Russia – Cuba preview: Probable lineups, team news, and recent form

Read all the latest news and updates on these two teams here, including the most likely Russia vs Cuba lineups:

Russia

With the ban to Russian national team still going, the Russians are forced to play friendly matches to stay in form. Given that they've only lost once in the last 10 games they played, it seems that this Russian team is a solid one. That being said, their competition has hardly been an impressive one in these friendly games and most of them have ended in draws, with Russia only winning 3 of those 10 games.

Russia predicted lineup:

Safonov – Silyanov, Soldatenkov, Osipenko, Volkov – Barinov – Kuzyaev, Glebov – Golovin, Chalov, Oblyakov

Cuba

After a tough loss in CONCACAF Nations League to Honduras, Cuba will look to get some of their confidence back with a good performance against Russia. They could certainly use a bit of a boost after losing 6 of their last 10 matches in all competitions. That being said, Cuba are a team that has the quality to get to the main stages of CONCACAF competitions, but hardly to do well in them.

Cuba predicted lineup:

Arozarena – Cruz, Piedra, Vazquez, Corrales, Blanco – Gutierrez, Diaz, Garcia, Matos – Lorenzo

Starting lineups

Check out the starting lineups an hour before the match starts.

Player to watch: Aleksandr Golovin

Only two players in the Russian national team that were called for this friendly duel with Cuba aren't playing in the Russian league at the moment and one of them is Monaco's Aleksandr Golovin. The experienced winger is having a good season with Monaco since he scored 5 goals and notched 2 assists in 11 Ligue 11 apperances so far.
