Serbia take on the visitors Sweden in the round 5 match of UEFA Nations League (League B). The match will be played on Friday, September 24th at Stadion Rajko Mitić (Belgrade).
Serbia under "Pichu" Stojkovic looks like a serious force. The Serbians returned to the big tournaments in 2018. But they really could not prove themselves in Russia, and then they failed the qualification for the Euro. It was after this that a new mentor appeared - and they relied on a local legend as a player. And it worked: the Serbs managed to overtake Portugal itself in the dispute for 1st place in the qualifying group in 2021! In the League of Nations, however, it all started with the home defeat of Norway. But there is still a way to win back the leadership from her in the head-to-head match of the last round. After all, Mitrovic and the company managed to take 4 points with neighboring Slovenia and, most importantly, took 1-0 win on the Swedish field.

Sweden have recently received several painful slaps in the face. "Tre Krunur" have been improveing for quite a long time, up to a certain peak in the form of a quarter-final of the last World Cup. But then there was last year's Euro, when the Scandinavians were able to confidently win the group, but then there was a defeat in the extra time of the 1/8 finals against Ukraine. Then, in the fall, Janne Andersen's wards missed the opportunity to snatch 1st place in qualifying from Spain. This led to the need to play in the playoffs in March. There, only in extra time, with a goal in the 110th minute, they managed to beat the Czech Republic. But after 5 days, the tired team lost to Poland, who avoided a duel with Russia. In the summer, the Swedes started with a victory over Slovenia on the road. But with stronger opponents, Norway (twice) and Serbia, there were defeats without scored goals. In fact, the task now is to ensure that they do not fall into 4th place.
Before Serbia's victory, there were a couple of friendly matches in June of 2009 and 2012. Then the national teams once defeated each other in their own field. Serbia will try to achieve victory and look like the favorite there. But Sweden looks like it's back to the wall. So we are waiting for "more than 2.0 goals".
Prediction for the match: Over 2.0 scored goals.
