Russia vs France international friendly ahead of World Cup 2018 TV channel and live stream

France visit the 2018 World Cup hosts Russia on Tuesday bidding to bounce back from defeat to Colombia in Paris on Friday.

Juan Fernando Quintero's late penalty saw the visitors come from 2-0 down to beat Les Bleus 3-2 at the Stade de France.

Russia themselves were beaten 3-0 by Brazil as Miranda, Philippe Coutinho and Paulinho netted during a 13-minute second-half goal rush at the Luzhniki Stadium on Friday.

They welcome Didier Deschamps' men aiming to end a run of four games without a win.

So how big a impact Cherchesov has made over Russian national team is yet to be seen.

Russia vs France

France will be looking to bounce back from defeat when they travel to Saint Petersburg to take on Russia in Tuesday’s international friendly clash.

Didier Deschamps’ team were beaten 3-2 by Colombia in Paris last week despite being two goals up after just 26 minutes.

Russia's hopes are somewhat more modest, yet their last two results (a slender 1-0 defeat to Argentina and a 3-3 draw with Spain) have perhaps given the hosts some hope of being able to compete.

Start time

Russia will host France at Saint Petersburg Stadium in Saint Petersburg, Russia, with kick-off scheduled for 4.50pm UK time on Tuesday, March 27.

The match will be shown live on MUTV. Alternatively, you can keep up to date with all of the action with New Gersy blog.

Possible Starting Lineup: 
Unlike the previous few major tournaments, this is the weakest squad at least on paper and although they should have enough about them to get out of the group stages its hard to see Russia going past first knockout stage. 

Cherchesov has made several high profile changes specially at the back bringing in Viktor Vasin (CSKA),  Fedor Kudryashov (Rubin Kazan), Georgi Dzhikiya (Spartak Moscow) in what will be three man defense.

In midfield Igor Denisov is unlikely to be part of the squad after falling out with national team coach while Alan Dzagoev is the stand out start in this Russian side with couple of quality goal scorers in Fyodor Smolov and Aleksandr Kokorin spearheading the attack.
