• Russia have won each of the last three meetings with Wales, outscoring them by six goals to two in that run. Joe Ledley and James Collins scored those two goals for Wales, as John Toshack's side lost 2-1 and 3-1 in their World Cup 2010 qualifying matches against Guus Hiddink's Russia. In their last four games against Wales, Russia have successively scored 0 goal, 1 goal, 2 goals and finally 3 goals.
  • Russia have qualified for the knockout stages of the EURO only once in their four participations since the breakup of the USSR. It was in 2008.
  • Russia have won only one of their last seven internationals (D2 L4), a 3-0 victory against Lithuania back in March.
  • Russia have kept two clean sheets in their last 17 games at the EURO finals.
  • Four of Russia's last five goals scored in the European Championships have come in the final 11 minutes of games.
  • Russia's last three goals at the EURO finals have all been headers.
  • Wales have reached the knockout stages in their only previous major tournament participation, back in the 1958 World Cup. They were knocked out in the quarter-finals by eventual winners Brazil.
  • Only nine of Russia's 21 shots over the first two games have been taken from inside the box.
  • Wales have scored with their opening shot on target in each of their first two games at EURO 2016; both were direct free-kicks from Gareth Bale.
  • Wales have conceded in each of their last six internationals, their longest run without a clean sheet since March 2013 (11).
  • Since the start of the EURO 2016 qualifiers, Gareth Bale has scored or assisted 11 of Wales' 14 goals in competitive games (79%), the highest ratio among teams to have made it to this year's finals.
  • Bale has scored two goals from direct free-kick in his first two games, only Michel Platini (1984) and Thomas Hässler (1992) have scored as many in a EURO tournament since 1980.
