Our prediction for this Nations League match:
Russia will be looking to clinch top position in Group 3 when they take on Serbia in Belgrade in their last group game. The Russians failed to impress in a 3-2 loss to Turkey, but it has to be noted that Andrey Semenov was sent off after just 23 minutes. The experienced defender misses the Serbia game through suspension, while Artem Dzyuba has been left out of the squad. As always, a man to watch in the away team will be Valencia winger Denis Cheryshev, who found the net in the 3-2 defeat to Turkey.
The Eagles, on the other hand, have yet to recover from a heartbreaking loss to Scotland in the EURO 2021 playoffs final. Ljubisa Tumbakovic’s men are low on confidence ahead of their last group game in the Nations League, and given the importance of the match for Russia, away win should be considered. Aleksandar Kolarov has left the squad, while Luka Milivojevic has been tested positive for coronavirus, as well as Serie A ace Filip Djuricic.
