Our prediction for this Nations League match:
There will be fireworks when Turkey and Russia go head to head at Ulker Stadyumu in the UEFA Nations League. Russia are on a quest to secure promotion to League A, but keep in mind that they will be without key attacker Artem Dzyuba in Sunday’s clash as the Zenit man has been left out of the squad. Stanislav Cherchesov’s troops are undefeated in the Europa League this term, but the game against Turkey will be anything but a walk in the park for the Group 3 leaders.
The Turks, on the other hand, head into the match without suspended attacker Burak Yilmaz, who was sent off in a 2-2 draw with Serbia. Defender Hasan Ali Kaldirim remains on the sidelines with injury for the hosts, but seeing that Senol Gunes’ men are tough to beat at home, we are tempted to put our money on draw.
