Russia travel to Moldova looking to secure another three points that would see them move one step closer to automatic promotion for Euro 2016. Russia let go of Fabio Capello half way through this qualifying campaign and replaced him with Slutsky who is double jobbing as CSKA and Russia manager. Russia have got themselves up to second in the group and a win against Sweden two games ago has left them in pole position. Russia has a solid squad and have definitely played better since replacing Capello winning three of their four qualifiers since. Dzyuba and Kokorin are going to be the key men up front against a Moldova team that generally dont conceded alot of goals.
Moldova have two points in the group thus far but they will up their game against Russia, with a solid defence Moldova have hung in to every game and have only lost by more than one goal a couple of times. Moldova are a unders lock in almost every game, struggling to score goals but dominating the games defensively. Moldova will look to hold Russia and pack the midfield. I have to take the unders here, while Russia did destroy Lichenstein last time out they have struggled to score goals during this qualifying campaign and I think Moldova will test them and keep this game tight.
Take the unders and cash a winner. Moldova have gone under in seven of eight qualfying games. Russia have gone under in five of eight qualfiers.
