I think this is bad (Russia) vs very bad (Saudi)

Two factors make it a cautious call for Russia for me.

1. In the months leading to today, Saudi sent many of their players abroad to Spain, contrary to their normal practices, to train and hopefully to play. Those players failed to get into Spanish second division sides, from which we can infer that 1. they are not very good; and 2. that they may be rusty.

2. This is the opening game in Russia. Not wishing to get into a debate about poisoning, interfering with elections, killing journalists BUT I wouldn't like to be the referee that gave a 50/50 decision against Russia, as Putin subtly nodded his head, and my life expectancy shortened by several decades. Would you?

What are Saudi expecting to do. Pass the ball into the net from the half way line.

Ended up being one of the best opening matches I've seen

Over 500k traded between 1.01 - 1.03 on the Under4.5 market

Great game. Think Russia been non triers of late. Lol. Don’t think Saudi were awful, although not great would say Russia possible semi finalist. There going to be tough to beat at home.

They'll be shown up for how poor they really are once they meet the better teams, they were just lucky Saudi were so poor. Always a better WC when the home team progresses but that 5-0 flatters them.

I wouldn't read too much into their chances of reaching a semi final based on that game. Possible opponents before that stage include Spain, Portugal, France and Argentina

Deciding game of that group will definitely be Egypt vs Russia imo

Everyone beats the saudis

Looks like the 2026 World Cup will be 16 groups of 3 with top 2 going into an extra knock out round of 32.

Obviously last group matches can't be played at the same time then, so I guess we could get the odd tip tap 0-0 draw if it would qualify both teams

Seems like because of this they are even considering penalty shoot outs at 90 mins in the group games
