Probable XI:



Top Fantasy Picks:

  • Dzyuba
  • Mario Fernandes
  • Golovin
  • Miranchuk
  • Kuzyaev


Team Tactics:

  • Russia is very direct, focusing on long balls forward into their target man up front. The backline will clear the ball towards Dzyuba who is often dropping slightly deeper to hold up play and then it’s spread wide for a crossing opportunity.
  • Russia’s direct route has served them well in the past but the lack of a plan B can and will eventually hurt their progress.
  • Defensively, they will aim to suffocate the opposition in the final third, often contesting the ball high up the pitch and not letting the other team have time and space in possession.

Dream11 Tips:

  • Artem Dzyuba is the main striker, top goal scorer and also the penalty taker for this Russian side.
  • Golovin is definitely Russia’s most creative attacking outlet. He will also be on most direct and indirect set-pieces.
  • Mario Fernandes is a fantastic option for your teams given his advanced right-wing-back position. Miranchuk can pop up with a goal from time to time as well.
