This is a UEFA Group F World Cup qualifying match between Luxembourg and Russia. There isn’t much on the line for Luxembourg in this game. They’re trying to avoid dropping to the bottom of the table perhaps. For Russia, they need the three points to stay ahead of Portugal and earn an automatic trip to the World Cup in Brazil.
Which ever team winds up in second will have to play in a playoff to earn a trip to the World Cup.
