The UEFA Euro 2020 returns to the fold with another set of group matches this week as Finland take on Russia at the Krestovsky Stadium on Wednesday. The two European sides find themselves at opposite ends of the group and will want to win this game.
Finland won their first game of Euro 2020 against Denmark and will want to pull off another positive result in this fixture. The Finnish team does have a few problems to solve and will need to be at its best in this match.
Russia, on the other hand, were given a reality check by Belgium in their previous game and cannot afford another debacle against Finland. The Russians have good players in their ranks and will need to prove their mettle on Wednesday.
