The Lionesses' last match saw them beat Bosnia-Herzegovina 2-0 away from home and they will be hoping for a similar result to take them back to the top of the group to continue their unbeaten run in qualifying.
The last time these two sides met, England Women defeated Russia 6-0 in the first game of their World Cup campaign.
Despite that heavy defeat, Russia Women will be hoping for a good result after winning their previous two games in April and they currently sit third in Group One.
