Match Preview & Team News

Scotland bounced back from the opening loss to Ireland by destroying Samoa 34-0 in the second-round fixture. They are now looking for another bonus-point victory against pool minnows Russia before facing hosts Japan in the crucial battle for the quarter-final.

The Scots know how big the clash with the Japanese outfit is as they made as many as 14 changes to the 15-man starting line-up for this tie with the Russians. The goal is obviously keeping the key figures fresh for the most important clash of the tournament. Scotland are still massive favourites here regardless of changes. They will be up against a side that scored no more than a solitary try in three World Cup affairs so far. 

The Russians were left to nil in a tough 35-0 defeat to Ireland in the previous round. They had just two players who scored points so far in the competition. Neither of them will be in the starting line-up here against the Scots as the head coach decided to make nine changes to the team which was at the wrong end of the drubbing six days ago against Ireland.

Fly-half Yury Kushnarev will be on the bench and we expect to see him on the pitch in the second half. On the other side, Darcy Graham will be the only player to retain his position in the initial XV for Scotland.

The Scots will have a great opportunity to boost up their confidence with a bonus-point victory against such an out-of-form opposition here.

Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction

Scotland are heavy favourites, but they will have the clash with Japan on their mind which is why we would not be surprised to see them winning this with a margin fewer than 33.5 points. Such a scenario can be backed at the odds of 9/10.

First Half Market Prediction

The second pick is Russia not to lose the first half with a margin higher than 16.5 points at the same 9/10 odds.
