Euro 2020: Finland vs Russia preview, team news, prediction and tips
June 15


Finland and Russia will go head-to-head in the matchday 2 of Euro 2020 Group B at Krestovsky Stadium on Wednesday. The kick-off is at 15:00 CEST.


Arguably no one expected anything from Finald at their first-ever European Championship but Markku Kanerva's side managed to claim a 1-0 win over Denmark in their group stage opener on Saturday. Nevertheless, no one would arguably deny the fact that the Finnish side were 'lucky' to take all three points against their fellow-Scandinavians simply due to Christian Eriksen's cardiac arrest in the first half.

Russia, meanwhile, looked awful in their tournament opener as they were destroyed 3-0 by Belgium thanks to Romelu Lukaku's brace and Thomas Meunier's strike. Stanislav Cherchesov's men definitely need to improve their performance to beat stubborn Finnish defence.

Team news

Jukka Raitala is the only injury doubt in Kanerva's squad after suffering a calf problem against Denmark. Yuri Zhirkov and Daler Kuzyaev, meanwhile, won't feature for Russia this time around as the pair had to be withdrawn against the Belgians.


The Russians will be desperate to claim their first win at this summer's Euro but Finland are unlikely to give Cherchesov's crop too many opportunities in front of their goal after producing a defensive masterclass in Copenhagen over the weekend. Let's say that you shouldn't expect a goal fest taking place in Saint Petersburg too.
