Tip Russia - Sweden
Russia go to this game on two straight wins after their run to the quarter finals of the 2018 World Cup. They have built on from their surprise showing at the competition and will be firm favorites here, against a team with three straight losses. Sweden fell to England in their last game at the World Cup and it has been downward for them ever since, with a loss to Austria in a friendly before falling to Turkey in their UEFA Nations League opener. The three straight losses made it four losses in six matches for Sweden and they will go to this game on a really weaker footing facing Russia, who have three wins in 10 home matches. Russia have scored in all but two of their last 10 matches while Sweden have not scored in four of their last 10 matches. The last time Sweden beat Russia was in 1998, and four matches later they have only managed two draws, with Russia picking two wins.
Key points Russia - Sweden
Russia have failed to score in just two of their last 10 matches.
Sweden have four losses in their last six matches.
Russia have scored seven goals in the last two matches.
Conclusion Russia - Sweden
In the shape that Russia are in, we don’t see Sweden leaving with a win. Russia have been great at home and we are backing them for the second win in the competition. They have seven times in the last two matches and are clearly enjoying a spillover of the great form at the World Cup. Playing in front of their fans will definitely spur them. A 2 – 1 correct score could work here.
