Russia vs Portugal – Confederations Cup – Preview

Posted on by Sreya

Russia vs Portugal

Russia vs Portugal – Russia face Portugal at the Otkrytiye Arena, Moscow on 21st June, Wednesday in the Confederations Cup in a Group A fixture.

Russia won their first game against New Zealand by a 2-0 scoreline but Portugal were limited to a 2-2 draw by Mexico in their first game of the competition.

Russia were not trailblazing by any means but they lead the 2016 Euro Champions by two points in Group A and Portugal, one of the pre-tournament favorites, could secure a draw only due to Cristiano Ronaldo’s brilliance in the first game. With Mexico being the favorites against New Zealand, Portugal must win tonight.

Team News

While Russia are likely to field a similar lineup to the one in their win against New Zealand, Portugal could see the likes of Bernardo Silva and Gelson Martins feature at some point in the game.

Russia Possible Starting Lineup: Igor Akinfeev, Giorgi Jikia, Viktor Vasin, Fyodor Kudryashov, Aleksandr Samedov, Aleksandr Golovin, Denis Glushakov, Yuri Gazinskiy, Yuri Zhirkov, Fedor Smolov, Dmitriy Poloz.

Portugal Possible Starting Lineup: Rui Patricio, Cedric Soares, Jose Fonte, Pepe, Raphael Guerreiro, Bernardo Silva, Joao Moutinho, William Carvalho, Andre Gomes, Cristiano Ronaldo, Andre Silva.

“We are professionals. We are just thinking about doing our best in the Confederations Cup and to go as far as we can in this tournament. It’s the first time Portugal plays in it, so it is a privilege for us all to be here.’

– Pepe, Portugal.
