UEFA Nations League
RUS vs TUR Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Russia will play host to Turkey in a crucial UEFA Nations League match at Fisht Stadium on Sunday.
Both the team are placed in Group 2 of League B, the 2nd tier of Nations League, and considering the positions of all the teams in this group, this game does carry a lot of significance for all of them.
With 4 points from the first two games, it’s Russia who are leading the pack, while Turkey and Sweden are 2nd and 3rd respectively in this group. A win for the hosts will make them favourite to win this group and thus improve their chances to get the promotion to the top tier where they would be eligible to rub shoulders with the likes of Spain, France and other top European nations.
Considering the form, Russia are also the most likely winner in this match. They have also won the reverse fixture 2-1 last month which makes 3 wins for them in the last 5 matches heading into this match. While the Turks have won just once and drawn three times in the last five matches.
However, the visitors can’t be ruled out entirely on the basis of form or the result of the last match between these nations. They do boast some serious talent in their ranks and likes of Under, Calhanoglu and Tosun can make a difference in any match.

Here is the RUS vs TUR Dream11 team news and injuries
Russia vs Turkey Team News:
Russia: Russia drew their last game 0-0 against Sweden but the match was overshadowed by the news that Aleksandr Kokorin was arrested for assault. He is definitely missing this match.
Alan Dzagoev was declared fit for the last match and yet, wasn’t included in the matchday squad by the manager. The midfielder hasn’t played since suffering a hamstring injury in the 24th minute of Russia’s 5-0 win over Saudi Arabia in their opening World Cup match. He could be included this time but is most likely to start on the bench.
Aleksandr Golovin was called up for the last match and did a fair job against Sweden. He is expected to retain his place.
Brazil-born Russia’s goalkeeper Guilherme returned to the squad in the last match and is expected to start between the posts in this match.

Turkey: Star midfielder Emre Akbaba has been ruled out of this match. The Galatasaray man is suffering from a hamstring injury. He is likely to be missed in a game of this magnitude, however, the visitors have Hakan Calhanoglu in their ranks, who can string a pass or two which could crucial in this match. Up front, Cenk Tosun may be given the nod ahead Enes Unal who started the last game against Bosnia.

Formation – 4-5-1
Goalkeeper – Lokomotiv Moscow’s Brazilian Born Russian Footballer, Guilherme Marinato is our choice for the custodian between the posts in both the teams.

Midfielders – That’s the area where we have most of the quality in our team. Denis Cheryshev and Roman Zobnin are from Russia while we have 3 Turkish in the midfield with Cengiz Under, Oguzhan Ozyakup and Hakan Calhanoglou completing our central park.
Super Strikers – Just one striker here in Artem Dzyuba because if Turkey are to score, the goals are most likely to come from the positions behind the striker. However, Cenk Tosun is in our 2nd team, and you can go for that team as well.
