TUR vs RUS Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
After losing 1-0 to Austria, who won’t be in the World Cup this summer, Russia’s preparations for the premier football event has stalled at the most inopportune time. The defeat in the last game made six-game winless streak for the Russians – not the kind of form you may want to carry into the biggest tournament and despite them playing as a host in the World Cup, Stanislav Cherchesov’s team need to perform better if they want to progress to the knockout stages.

Russia’s bad form could be down to the fact that they opted to face Argentina, Spain, Brazil, and France in quick succession. As expected they lost all the games but the thing that must be giving Cherchesov some sleepless nights is their leaky defense which shipped 10 goals against the above aforementioned four teams. So they need to tighten things up at the back when the real things come around.

Like Austria, Russia’s opponent in this game, Turkey are also not in the World Cup. But they have nothing to fear in this game and will be looking to build on their four-game unbeaten streak which they are carrying into this match. They have also scored at least one goal in the last five games and looking at the Russian’s backline, we are backing the visitors to score in this match.

TUR vs RUS Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:

 

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:

Despite Russia not losing a game against Turkey, the hosts have been tagged as underdog in this match. This could be because of the contrasting form of both the teams- Russia haven’t won in six while Turkey are unbeaten in the last four.

But we are backing the hosts to avoid a defeat in this match.
