Russia to lead at both HT and FT
Let's cut to the chase here, you can't read loads into the form guide around this match because, quite frankly, the level of opposition Kyrgyzstan face just isn't comparable to the sort of games Russia are used to. Even with that in mind though, Kyrgyzstan have still lost four of their last 10 games whilst they've won just two of their last six matches. Russia meanwhile have won five of their past six games and have lost just three of their past 10 – two of which were at the Euro 2020 finals. With all that considered, anything but Russia domination in this game would be a huge surprise. As such we’re backing them to be leading at HT and FT.
Expecting goals galore
Our next free premium soccer tips this match is somewhat easier to explain as we are backing over 2.5 goals. Six of Kyrgyzstan’s last 10 games have gone north of that 2.5 cut off with an average of 3.1 goals per game. Now, only of Russia’s last 10 have gone over the 2.5 mark but two of those four higher scoring games have come in their last three games and their game average across the 10 game period still stands at 2.4. Considering the strength of opposition, going over 2.5 goals is something we’re very confident of.
