Mostly all the soccer fan look upon on the home side Russian able to beat the Saudi Arabia to earn the 3 points for the Group A for the opening match with home ground advantage.
Currently although the Saudi Arabia World rank 67th is higher than Russian 70th. But from the skills, football tactic, the stamina, the soccer development, players involved in the higher league; European side Russian have much more advantage if compare with Arabia side.
However, Saudi Arabia, one of frequent World Cup qualifier from Asian side, shall give the home a bull dog fight to earn at least 1 points. Unless they are confident to defeat another two world Cup outfits such as Uruguay (WR14) and Egypt (WR45).
