Here is the explanation in detail our prediction. view of the high stakes for grabs this could lead to a very close game and tactics in the first half, while in the second half the two teams could be extended to look for the best possible result, but this would force the defense to play very high risk of uncovering. Both Russia and Slovakia in the opening match were scored in the second half. Russia will not be available to several key players of the caliber of Zhirkov, Denisov and Dzagoev: the formation of Slutsky could accuse these absences from the personality standpoint and play in this important race. Against Russia Slovakia will have five players cautioned: this could force Hamsik and companions to a game with a few tactical fouls also allowing their opponents to enter more easily in the penalty area. Despite the defeat against Wales in Slovakia he has played a good game Hamsik, but to review the provision of Kozacik between the posts appeared unsafe in the opening match.
