Turkey – Sweden, Nations League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR TURKEY - SWEDEN
This game is protocol for the Turks, because they have lost their two games against Russia. In the first match in Stockholm between Sweden and Turkey, the guests made a comeback to 2-3 with two late goals and we saw a very open match with a large number of chances. If the hosts defeat Sweden now they will have 6 points, which is 1 less than the Russians, respectively the there are no chances for the first place for them at paper. What impresses Lucescu’s team is the nice football he practices. Surely the main threat to the Swedish defense is Tosun and Calhanoglu in this game.
Sweden must get the win in this match and then they will accept Russia at their last meeting in the League of Nations in Stockholm and if they also take the win then, they will certainly be first and will be able to play playoffs as they will be the better team in their direct matches with the Russians. Sweden played very strong at the world cup in which they reached the quarterfinals even without their big star of recent years, Ibrahimovic. It seems the Swedes are very cooperative and definitely know what to do on the pitch. They are one of the most disciplined teams in general.
This match is also expected to be open, just like the first one. Sweden is looking for a mandatory victory, while Turkey will play for their honor. In matches between these two teams, there are usually a lot of goals in the history of the game – Overall in 7 out of 9, there was “BTTS” option. In view of the current situation, zero draw is unlikely. We think that Sweden undeservedly left with empty hands in the last match against the Turks and now they have no right to mistake. The main prediction is Turkey : Clean Sheet – NO at 1.48. The alternative option we offer is Draw or Sweden at 1.61
