RUS vs SWE Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Sweden will be going head-to-head against Russia in a crunch League B clash in the UEFA Nations League match at Friends Arena, in Stockholm, Sweden, on Tuesday night (IST).
Sweden started their UEFA Nations League campaign in the worst possible way, a 2-3 home loss against Turkey in the first game, followed by a 0-0 draw away against Russia. So they were always playing the catch-up in the group from the off and had no or little room to make more errors.
However, Blågult got a lease of hope after Russia defeated Turkey 2-0 last month, while the dynamics of the group changed completely after the Yellow Army won 0-1 in the away game against the Turks.
But Russia are still leading the group with seven points from the first three game. They are still unbeaten and have conceded just one goal in the campaign so far. Definitely, it’s an uphill task for Janne Andersson and his men, but it’s also the one they can finish.
Russia, on the other hand, have been the team to be beaten in this group. In fact, Sbornaya are performing at a different level since the start of the world cup at their own home. The whole world had written them off completely and the odds were way too big against them to even qualify from their group to the knockout stage.
But they did qualify from their group and arguably scripted the result of the tournament after beating mighty Spain on penalties. The hosts were knocked out by Croatia at the quarterfinal hurdle, but Stanislav Cherchesov’s men remain a team in high-spirit coming into this match. They have won all their games since world cup, barring one which, a 3-0 defeat to Germany last time around. So the visitors are fully capable of winning this game.
