Missing Players and team news:
Tarkovic will make a number of alterations to his Slovakia eleven, potentially drafting in the likes of David Strelec and Robert Bozenik. Jakub Holubek is also expected to feature at left-back, deputising for David Hancko, who sustained an injury against Malta. Albert Rusnak may be drafted back into the starting lineup after being dropped for Saturday’s fixture. Russia midfielder Aleksei Miranchuk is in line to be handed a recall due to Aleksandr Golovin’s early withdrawal versus Slovenia. Cherchesov restricted veteran Yuri Zhirkov to 68 minutes at the weekend, possibly with the view of keeping the 37-year-old at left wing-back for this game.
