On Tuesday, Sweden will play host to unbeatable Russia in Nations League.
Sweden, after a luck-driven victory against Turkey, has emerged quite strong after their last match. Although they were not that strong in the first half and Turkey comparatively dominated Sweden ending the first half at 1-0. But the second half was entirely ruled by Sweden ending the match at 1-1. But there was still quite a lot of glitch in the gameplay. Central defender Granqvist didn’t fail to convert the penalty kick to a goal, which was the only one of the match. The win against Turkey gave enough confidence to face Russia who stands at the top with 7 points.
Russia, who just have overcome with the 3-0 debacle to Germany, is now a bit concerned, especially when Sweden successfully sidelined the 1-point gap with ease. Russians generally have plenty of troubles with injured players ahead of the trip to Scandinavia given they will also be without their main creators Denis Cheryshev and Aleksandr Golovin who are both injured.
When it comes to a head-to-head arcade, there is usually a draw between these two teams, as it happened four times in five games so far.
Olsen (GK), Augustinsson, Granqvist, Lindelöf, Lustig, Johansson, Ekdal – Olsson, Larsson, Berg, Claesson.
Lunev (GK), Rausch, Dzhikiya, Neustädter, Nababkin, Gazinsky, Kuzyaev, Al. Miranchuk, Erokhin, Ionov, Chalov.

Russia stands a chance to win or does have the potential to chase and end the match with a draw.
