Back Over 6.5 Goals @ [2.70] in San Marino v Russia

San Marino v Russia
Tuesday 19:45

In Greece last night, Teemu Pukki grabbed the first goal for Finland before the hosts recovered to win 2-1 and land our BTTS bet. Playoffs aside, today's the final day of Euro 2020 qualifying and it brings the conclusion of Group I.

Belgium and Russia have already qualified from the group. San Marino, of course, have not. Tonight's hosts lost the reverse fixture 0-9 in Russia in June and we like the juicy odds-against price on Over 6.5 Goals for today's encounter.

Stanislav Cherchesov's visitors lost 1-4 at home to group winners Belgium on Saturday, but have otherwise been in good goalscoring form. Last month, they won 4-0 at home to Scotland then went to Cyprus and won 5-0. Going back to June again, they won their first Group I match 4-0 in Kazakhstan. Going up against the group's weakest team this evening, we fancy they can score heavily once more.

San Marino are pointless in Group I, but did score their first group goal in Kazakhstan at the weekend. Nevertheless, they have conceded 46 across nine previous matches and look ripe for a thrashing in this one.
