Worth mentioning: Russia beat San Marino 5-0 in the last game in November 2019, eliminating the bad taste of the tough 4-1 defeat against Belgium just three days earlier. In fact, the Russians had won the last ten games against every other nation, recording eight wins but losing twice to the Belgians. No draw has been recorded in the country’s last thirteen games. Four of the last five games in Russia have resulted in more than 2.5 goals, and only in one case did both teams hit the back of the nets.
Serbia ended in a 2-2 draw with Ukraine in their last game. Before that game, the Serbs had scored four wins in a row and scored tough triumphs one goal ahead of the Minnows Luxembourg and Lithuania. They managed to go just once without conceding a goal in the last eleven games, a clear sign of the team’s defensive problems. All but one of Serbia’s last five games have scored more than 2.5 goals, and goals have been scored at both ends in each of those games.
