Finland vs Russia Bet Builder Tips – 14/1 Prediction for the Group B Clash
Finland recorded an unexpected victory in their opening match against Denmark, and with another performance and result like that on Wednesday, they will practically ensure their Round of 16 progression.
Russia lost their first game of Euro 2020, so they desperately need a good result against Finland, as one more dropped point would almost certainly mean that they will be eliminated. Given all this into consideration, we can expect a fierce match between these two nations at the Gazprom Arena. Finland will want to keep up their winning form, and Russia will be fighting for their lives.
Russia to Win
Although Finland showed what they are capable of in their match against Denmark, Russia has more experience and quality in big games such as this one. Their attack is experienced, and they showed in the 2018 World Cup that they are not to be underestimated.
Finland will be a tough nut to crack, but Russia’s attack led by Golovin and Dzyubia will certainly have chances to secure the win for Russia and make this group even more interesting. The odds for a Russia win stand at 8/13.
Under 2.5 Goals
Finland will be careful not to lose this game, so they will focus on their defence, and trying to stop Russia from winning this game. A draw will be almost a perfect result for them on Wednesday, so they will try to frustrate Russia with many players behind the ball.
However, this game is of the utmost importance for Russia, so we expect to give it a proper go, with their quality and experience eventually finding their way to the Finland net. Don’t expect goals galore here, so under 2.5 goals seems like a reasonable bet, with the odds for that outcome being 4/7.
Artem Dzyubia to Score Anytime
The 32-year-old striker is probably in the form of his life, with his 32-goal season for Zenit being the best one in his career so far. He is obviously the main threat for Russia, and his teammates will be looking to get as many balls as possible to him.
He didn’t have a game to remember against Belgium, so, just like any striker, he will be desperate to prove that he can lead Russia to a good Euro 2020 campaign. We back him to score at any time and secure the much-needed victory for Russia, and eventually lead them to the knockout stage of the tournament. You can back him to score anytime against Finland and use the appealing odds of 11/10.
Teemu Pukki to have 1+ shot on target
Finland won their opening match in bizarre circumstances, so they know a point here would not be the worse result in the world and Teemu Pukki will be their main threat once again. Russia were beaten 3-0 by Belgium in their opening match and even though Belgium are a class above Finland, their main man should still trouble the Russia defencer, and hopefully, goalkeeper.
