India and Russia will be colliding for their first-leg match of Olympic Qualifiers 2019 which will be played at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneshwar. This match will be played after the clash between India women and USA women clash.
The Indian men’s team were impressive in the World Cup where they made their way into the quarter-finals before losing to the Netherlands by 1-2. An Olympic berth is what on the radar of Manpreet Singh led team and they will come into this game all guns blazing.
Russia, on the other hand, are the underdogs in this contest and their chances of winning this encounter are almost negligible. They were humiliated by 10-0 when the last time these two teams collided. It would be a really tough task for the Russians to claim a victory here.
The match will be played at the Kalinga Stadium, Bhubaneshwar 01st November
Time –08:00 PM IST
Russia won– 00
India won– 05
