Achilles, the “psychic cat” of the Confederation Cup, has seemingly predicted that Russia will beat New Zealand in their Saturday game in St. Petersburg.

The deaf cat from the feline crew of the Hermitage Museum, who was selected to give “forecasts” on the results of cup matches earlier this week, appeared to prefer the “Russian” bowl of food to that marked by New Zealand’s flag.

He didn’t actually eat the food itself, however, possibly indicating a tie.

The match will start later in the day at 15:00 GMT.
