Russian national team coach Valeri Karpin faced big problems for the October matches. He can’t count on key players like Karavaev, Mario Fernandez, Ozdoev, Zobnin, Golovin, brothers Miranchuk, Cheryshev, Ionov, Dzyuba, Samoshnikov, Makarov, Glushakov, and Zhirkov. The biggest problems are positions of full-backs, where there is only Alexei Sutormin, who will certainly take the position on the right, while 21-year-old Ural defender Arsen Adamov will be in the last line. Also, in the midfield absence of Aleksandr Golovin, and Aleksei Miranchuk is irrepressible. Slovakia already defeated Russia in March, and I think that they are more than capable to win at least a point.
