Sweden is all set to host Serbia this week, in a League B clash in the ongoing edition of the Nations League.
Sweden played its first group game against Slovenia and thrashed them 2-0 thanks to a penalty converted by Emil Forsberg, and a goal by forward Dejan Kulusevski in the dying minutes of the game. However, their victory march was halted in the very next match, as they hosted a much stronger Norway last Monday.
With goals on either side of the halftime whistle, Norwegian talisman Erling Haaland put the visitors firmly in control of the match, and a late goal by Anthony Elanga in the second-half stoppage time wasn’t enough to save the home team from blushing, as it dropped three crucial points. Although it has the same number of points as its opponents for Thursday, Sweden is third on the points table with a lower goal difference.
Serbia on the other hand will be feeling quite confident as they head to the Friends Arena. While it was once again Erling Haaland who handed Serbia a defeat in its first game of the tournament, the Eagles came back strongly in their second outing, registering a thumping victory against Slovenia. The hosts were the first to draw blood, as Aleksander Mitrovic scored in the 24th minute. But the visitors were quick to equalize, in the 30th minute.
A blistering attack from Sergej Milinkovic- Savic, Luka Jovic, and Nemanja Radonjic in the second half handed Serbia a stunning 4-1 win to Serbia, and catapulted them to the second spot on the points table, keeping them in the hunt for promotion to League A. However, most football betting sites are predicting a much more even contest this time around, giving similar odds for both teams.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Sweden vs Serbia, Nations League 2022. The match is going to be played at the Friends Arena Stadium, Solna, on 9th June 2022.
Swedish coach Janne Andersson will have to put on his thinking cap for this game, as quite a few of his key players will be unavailable for this crucial fixture. Dejan Kulusevski earned cards in both the opening games and will be sitting out, serving a suspension. Carl Starfelt, who was stretchered off the field in the game against Slovenia, Zlatan Ibrahimović, Albin Ekdal, and Victor Lindelof, too will miss out on this game.
As for the visitors, Dusan Vlahovic is likely to miss out on the entire edition due to a groin injury. However, there seem to be no other injury concerns for coach Dragan Stojkovic. He is likely to start with Milos Veljkovic for this game, as Aleksander Mitrovic leads the front line again.
We are predicting a pretty even contest for this game, with both the teams sharing the spoils at full-time.
Bet on a draw.
3 of Sweden’s last 4 international games and 2 of Serbia’s last 4 matches have produced less than 2.5 goals at full time. With both the teams pretty evenly matched and having shown good defenses so far, we are expecting a low-scoring game.
Given both the team’s penchant for scoring in their recent outings, and the right mixture of youth and experience in both the teams, a BTTS bet looks pretty safe at this stage.
