Russia and Saudi Arabia kick off the 2018 World Cup in Moscow on Thursday afternoon.
Over 0.5 goals in the match is 1/11 (1.09) but new Coral customers can get an enhanced 28/1 (29.0) on a goal is scored in the match at the Luzhniki Stadium. Returns paid in free bets, £1 bet. T&Cs apply.
Russia have not seen a 0-0 draw since August 2016 when they played out a goalless stalemate with Turkey, some 20 matches ago.
Whilst Stanislav Cherchesov’s men are hardly an attacking force to be reckoned with, they have scored in 15 of their last 20 matches whilst netting six times in their last five.
Their defence has plenty of question marks surrounding them, too, conceding in each of their last 10 matches and shipping three to each of Brazil, France and Spain in the last eight months.
Saudi Arabia, meanwhile, have never drawn 0-0 at the World Cup and have kept just one clean sheet in their 13 matches at the tournament – way back in 1994 when they saw off Belgium 1-0 – whilst conceding a huge 32 times.
As well, their nine matches in 2018 alone have seen 27 goals and, like Russia, they have problems at both ends but this should lead to an open game with plenty of chances for both sides.
This new customer offer of 28/1 (29.0) on a goal being scored from Coral is expected to prove extremely popular ahead of the World Cup’s kick-off on Thursday evening.
