Russia and Algeria are fighting for the runner-up spot in Group H. Algeria is the front runner with three points, and a Russia win would allow them to pass them. There is also a chance South Korea could pass them both if they draw or Russia wins.
Russia are confident they can score and get the win.
“We have studied new schemes, new models and I think tomorrow we will score, we’re bound to score tomorrow,” Russia captain Vasily Berezutskiy told a news conference on Wednesday, via the Associated Press.
