Euro 2016 Odds and Predictions: Russia vs Moldova

On Sunday evening Russia will play Moldova in their next qualifying match for Euro 2016 at the Otkrytie Arena in Moscow.

The teams last played in 2000 when Russia won 1 – 0. More recently, Russia beat both Liechtenstein and Azerbaijan 4 – 0 in September. At the World Cup the team drew 1 – 1 with Algeria, lost 1 – 0 to Belgium and drew 1 – 1 with Korea.

Moldova has lost its last three games. Last month they lost 2 – 0 to Montenegro and 1 – 0 to Ukraine. In June they lost 1 – 0 to Cameroon but in May they drew 1 – 1 with Canada and beat Saudi Arabia 4 – 0.

Unsurprisingly Russia is the bookies’ favourite to win with odds of around 1/20. The odds on Moldova winning are around 33/1 while a draw has been set at around 12/1. Most bookies are predicting the most likely score will be a 2 – 0 victory for Russia and are offering odds of 5/1; however, the same odds are available on a 3 – 0 Russian victory.
