How to watch the opening ceremony russia vs saudi arabia
The 2018 World Cup kicks off on Thursday as host Russia takes on Saudi Arabia. It’s the opener of the tournament, which means it’ll probably be the most watched game involving these two teams in Group A. The host nation and Saudi Arabia will battle for three vital points, with the group’s second match between Uruguay and Egypt arriving on Friday on a three-match day.
Winning the first match you play is key if you are to move on, and the pressure is on Russia to deliver in front of its home crowd in Moscow.
Russia enters the match in full strength but has yet to win a friendly in 2018, with two of the matches russia vs saudi arabia coming against Brazil and France. Will all the tests pay off in the opener?
Saudi Arabia, meanwhile, played well in a 2-1 loss to Germany last week and is confident it can get something in this game russia vs saudi arabia . Nobody on the team will be more hungry to deliver than coach Juan Antonio Pizzi, who failed to guide Chile to qualification to the World Cup but still managed to make the tournament himself after landing the Saudi gig in November.
Here’s how you can watch the match and our prediction. And be sure to return about a half an hour before kickoff russia vs saudi arabia for our live blog of the game:

Achilles the cat, one of the State Hermitage Museum mice hunters, has predicted the result of the opening match of the 2018 Fifa World Cup between Russia and Saudi Arabia in St.Petersburg on Wednesday. Achilles has chosen the host Russia.
Achilles the cat is a deaf, white-furred Hermitage russia vs saudi arabia male cat who is following in the tentacle-prints of Paul the Octopus who became a star in 2010.
Paul the Octopus became the world’s most famous mollusc when he correctly predicted all the matches of the German team during the South African World Cup. He went on to predict the victory of Spain in the final.
Paul predicted winners for that years’ World Cup by choosing one out of two boxes containing food, while Achilles will be presented with bowls marked with teams’ flags.
“The prediction will take place a day before the teams of the host and the guests from Saudi Arabia will meet in Moscow’s Luzhniki,” the committee said in a statement on Saturday, reports Tass news agency russia vs saudi arabia .
Achilles will choose between two cat food bowls with the flags of the participating countries.
The Hermitage cat was right about the outcomes of three out of four 2017 Confederations Cup matches played in St. Petersburg, including the opening and final matches. His “performance” during the World Cup is a joint project on developing tourism of St. Petersburg and the Hermitage Museum.
