The situation between Spain and Sweden

The Spanish National Team is playing for its chances to be in the World Cup Qatar 2022 against Greece but also plays 3 hours earlier in Georgia, where Sweden, current group leader, is looking for a win to further tighten the group and allow them to play for the qualification in their visit to La Cartuja in Seville next Sunday.
The Swedes currently lead the group but if they fail to take all three points they could lose that position if Spain wins in Greece. If they win in Georgia, who are already eliminated, they would go into the match against La Roja knowing that a draw would be enough to see them through to the big tournament. 
11:41 AM2 months ago

What can we expect for this match?

A very important match for the Swedes who are favorites to come out victorious in this duel. The Georgian hosts were defeated in the reverse match against the Swedes by (1-0) in Stockholm, and there seems to be no improvement in this section that can foresee a change in that result.

The Swedes must win to put pressure on the Spaniards, who play Greece at the second hour, the Scandinavians have a very competitive team in all lines and a good offense composed of Alexander Isak and Emil Forsberg.

11:38 AM2 months ago

How do Sweden arrive?

The Scandinavians are leaders of group B with 15 points, the team led by coach Janne Andersson, have maintained a fierce fight against the Spanish team for the direct quota to the Qatar 2022 World Cup, distancing themselves from the Iberians by 2 units, it is a race where whoever fails first can lose the so desired quota. The Swedish team has a streak of 1 win, 1 draw and 3 defeats in the last 5 away matches.
The away team's absentees for this match are Ken Sema due to injury and Albin Ekdal due to suspension.
