Russia vs Saudi Arabia Prediction

 If we consider the current performance between Saudi Arabia and Russia, both are almost same category teams and it seems very difficult to describe the possible winner between them. But as local team Russia will play with more confidence but still the opponent is strong enough. So, the match would end with draw it seems.
