Barely in this Nations League group, Serbia occupies the last place in the standings and is 3 points behind on 3rd place. The selection must win this Wednesday and hope for a defeat of Turkey in Hungary to avoid a descent in League C. Last Sunday, the partners of striker Mitrovic gleaned a precious point in Hungary (1-1). Before this draw, they experienced a real disillusionment by losing their barrage played at home against Scotland (1-1, elimination following the shots), thus destroying their last hopes of participating in Euro 2021. Present in the group B qualifiers for Euro 2021, Serbia did not deserve but finished in 3rd place, behind Ukraine and Portugal.
Russia leads this group 3 of the Nations League C but has the same number of points as its closest pursuer, Hungary. The selection hopes to consolidate its position in the standings and thus ensure its rise in League A. Little to their advantage during this gathering, playmaker Miranchuk’s partners first conceded the draw in Moldova during a friendly match ( 0-0) before losing in Turkey last Sunday (3-2). Only ahead of Belgium in its qualifying group for Euro 2021, Russia finished in 2nd place and therefore directly composted its ticket for the group stage.
Staff for Serbia vs Russia
Serbia must do without the Neapolitan defender Maksimovic and the midfielder Besikjtas Lajic not summoned, while the summoned Veljkovic (Werder), Durici (Sassuolo) and Despotovic (Rubin Kazan) had to forfeit. In addition, defender Kolarov, midfielder Kostic, and striker Mitrovic (3 big executives of this selection) are on the floor and the last forfeit to date from this team, with midfielder Milivojelic and Duricic who are positive for Covid. On the other hand, the Serbs will be able to line up other executives: defenders Milenkovic (Fiorentina) and Mladenovic (Legia Warsaw), midfielders Tadic (Ajax), Milivojevic (Crystal Palace), Milinkovic-Savic (Lazio) and Lukic (Torino). Finally, Jovic (Real Madrid) is also present, as are Ligue 1 residents Rajkovic (Reims), Mitrovic (Strasbourg), Pavlovic (Monaco), Radonjic (Marseille) and Ristic (Montpellier). Marseillais Radonjic scored last weekend.
For this rally, Russia is lessened in the offensive sector by the absence of attackers Dzyuba (extra-sporting problem) and Smolov, and blaster Golovin (still in the recovery phase with Monaco). In addition, initially summoned, goalkeeper No. 1 Shunin and defenders Mario Fernandes and Smolnikov were finally injured while right-back Semenov was suspended. Starting last weekend, defenders Kudryashov (Antalyaspor) and Zhirkov (Zenit) and midfielders Ozdoev (Zenit) and Zobnin (Spartak Moscow) are available. Absent last October due to an injury, the very important Aleksey Miranchuk (Atalanta) is back in the selection while winger Cheryshev (Valencia) found the net against Turkey.
