Russia vs Slovenia: an easy triumph of the favorite?

On January 16, the Russian national team will play with the Slovenian national team in the group round of the World Handball Championship. Will the Russians achieve a result? - The answer in the prediction of our analysts.

Russia national handball team

The Russian national team pleasantly surprised by the quality of its game against Belarusians (32:32). Velimir Petkovic's guys performed very well in defense, first of all playing tactically correctly. Due to the difficult situation caused by the large number of injured players, the start of the "Russian team" at the World Cup can be called successful.

Upcoming Predictions for Handball

Slovenia national handball team

"Slovenes" managed to majorly defeat the South Korean national team (51:29) in the opening match of the tournament. You rarely see such performance in handball, but the reason is that the Koreans brought the second squad to the tournament. The main team is preparing for the Olympics.

Lubomir Vranjes' guys, considering the loss of points by the Belarusians, are the main favorites to win in the group, though everything will probably be decided in their face-to-face confrontation.

All predictions for Handball


  • Teams have met each other twice in history. Slovenes were stronger in both matches.
  • Slovenia National Team won five of the last ten matches.
  • Slovenes have scored 78 goals in the last two matches.
  • Slovenia national team was unbeaten in the last three matches.

Our Prediction

We think that it will be difficult for the Russian national team in the match against the Slovenes. The Slovenian national team has an advantage in teamwork and in the fact that all strongest handball players will be performing at the match, unlike Russian team players.

Besides, in the opening fight, Lubomir Vranjes did not fully engage his leaders in the confrontation with South Korea. Thus, the Slovenes will obviously look fresher than Russian guys. We propose to bet on the victory of the Slovenian national team with a minus handicap, since we do not see how the Russian national team can achieve a positive result.

Our prediction is the victory of the Slovenian national team eith the the odds of 1.19 on sport.netbet.
