Smolov had a fruitful season in front of goal for Krasnodar in the Russian Premier League last season, netting 14 times in 22 games to take him onto 63 goals for the club since moving there three years ago.

The 28-year-old has also scored three times in his last five games for Russia, including a brace in a wild 3-3 draw with Spain last November.

Russia have scored 20 goals in their last 15 games and should have few problems finding the net against a Saudi Arabia side that has never won a match at the World Cup.

Indeed, the Green Falcons have conceded 32 times in their 13 matches in the tournament since their first appearance in 1994 and have managed just a single clean sheet in that time.

Smolov typically thrives against outsiders, with nine of his 14 goals for Krasnodar last season coming against sides in the bottom half.

The 6/5 (2.20) price, enhanced from 19/20 (1.95) on him to score anytime on Thursday afternoon is set to prove popular amongst punters ahead of the first match of the 2018 World Cup.
