Northern Ireland take on Russia on Friday 22nd March, 2013, with kickoff at 19:45. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports 3 .

Russia sit atop World Cup Qualifying Group F at the moment with four wins from four games, and they won’t be overly concerned at the prospect of having to travel and play against Northern Ireland. The home team are yet to win a game in the group, but a series of three draws has at least left them with the belief they still might have a chance in this group.

Russia are far from invincible, and a home win would be a famous day for a team that hasn’t always delivered success, so this is a big game for both sides.
