Sweden take on the visitors Slovenia in the round 6 match of UEFA Nations League (League B). The match will be played on Tuesday, September 27th at Friends Arena (Solna).
Sweden had a great World Cup in Russia. After that, there was a confident passage of the selection for the Euro and a worthy performance already on it - but only in the group round. Then, already in the 1/8 finals, the Scandinavians unexpectedly lost to Ukraine - in extra time, in the minority, they conceded the decisive goal from Dovbyk. It seems that they never fully recovered from this blow. In the fall, after winning first against Spain, "tre krunur" lost their advantage. And, having become 2nd, then, in the spring, they lost the playoffs for reaching the world championship. The Czechs were still dealt with at home - Kvaison scored in extra time. But there were no chances with the fresh Poles who did not play against Russia on the road. The summer began with a victory in Slovenia, but then the Swedes lost to everyone in a row. September matches started in Serbia - and failed completely. Even Klasson's goal did not help: the hosts responded with 4 of their own goals with a Mitrovic hat-trick.

Slovenia have not played in the final stages since 2010. This is despite the fact that they have smart players in their squad, and Oblak is considered one of the best goalkeepers in the world! Last year, too, the "guys" were clearly worse than the leaders of their group, Croatia with Russia, and fought with Slovakia for 3rd place. And then there was also Ilicic, who, despite unsportsmanlike problems, was the most dangerous of the "field" players. June did not give reason for optimism, except that one could be glad that at least they did not concede from Norway and bounced back to a draw with the Serbs after the defeat at home to the Swedes and the defeat in Belgrade 1-4. But even after that, the management continues to believe in Matjaž Kek - as he became the head coach back in 2018, he is still holding on to his post. And he proved that it was the right decision, as they managed to beat Norway at home.
Before Sweden's summer victory in a head-to-head, there were a couple of friendly matches. In 2008, the Scandinavians won minimally at home, and in 2016, the teams finished without goals at all. Bookmakers are betting that Sweden will win this fight. It is unlikely that the Slovenes will be able to give out 2 sensations in a row - we recommend betting that the Scandinavians will win.
Prediction for the match: Sweden to win.
