82'
Saudi Arabia shot blocked
Hatan Bahbir pulls a long pass back from the end line and dribbles into space but his shot from the right corner of the box is blocked by Sergey Ignashevich. Five Russian players between the ball and the goalie meant it was probably unlikely anyway.
78'
Saudi Arabia trying to find a way through
Russia look more disciplined than ever in this game, sitting deep in 2 banks of 4 with the forwards pressing one-on-one. Saudi Arabia are not getting in dangerous positions where they could win a free kick either.

50'
Corner cleared
Omar Othman continues his diligent work heading the ball free from danger.
50'
Russia wins first corner of the half

47'
Back and forth to start the half
Saudi Arabia resumes where they left off in the first half: unable to find much room in midfield. Either Russia has every passing lane covered or Saudi Arabia need to find more space on the opposite side. Russia looking confident, as they should, playing at home with a 2-0 lead.
43'
Russia scores! 2-0 to the host nation!
After Russia quickly move the ball up the right wing Aleksandr Golovin finds himself in space. Golovin stops, turns and centers to Iury Gazinsky who plays it on to Denis Cheryshev. Cheryshev controls the short pass and finishes top corner with a strong left foot from 6 meters away.
