Russia will host Portugal in this crucial relegation play-off. The teams have met on three occasions, with Russia winning all three ties; the last meeting, however, was in 1992.
Last tie 31 January-2 February 2014
Russia were defeated by Poland 3-2 as Jerzy Janowicz did the damage by beating Karen Khachanov on the opening day and Dmitry Tursunov on Sunday. Marcin Matkowski and Mariusz Fyrstenberg scored Poland's other point after Tursunov had initially leveled the tie at 1-1.
Russia has won the title twice - in 2002 and 2006 - and finished runner-up on three further occasions. Until 1991, Russian players competed under the flag of USSR, and then CIS in 1992.
