Russia vs Sweden Predictions, Betting Tips and Match Previews

Reason For Russia vs Sweden Betting Tips

Sweden return to Russia this week, following their impressive exploits at the World Cup. The Swedes were among the surprise packages at the tournament, and they reached the quarter-finals alongside the hosts. It’s strange to see two of the last eight at the World Cup meeting in a second tier match in the Nations League, but both of these sides are hoping to build on their success in the summer by gaining promotion in this tournament. Which one of them will taste success in Kaliningrad on Thursday night?

Russia are looking impressive following their great exploits this summer. Football in the country has got a boost from their run to the last eight, and they were only narrowly eliminated in their clash with runners-up Croatia. There is a chance to grow for this squad, and CSKA Moscow’s recent win over European champions Real Madrid is yet another big statement from Russia. Can they continue that great momentum when they host the Swedes?

The visitors certainly haven’t got a boost from their World Cup run. Their 2-0 loss to England dented morale, and they returned to action with a defeat to an Austria side who failed to make the World Cup. The Swedes were expected to pick up their form for the start of their Nations League campaign, but a 3-2 loss at home to Turkey was a huge blow. They’re now facing the prospect of relegation, especially if they lose out in this trip.

Russia have impressed with their post-World Cup results. They kicked off their Nations League campaign with a 2-1 win in Turkey, and that was followed by a 5-1 hammering of the Czech Republic. The Russians are looking impressive, and after their overachievement at the World Cup, it’s hard to back against them getting more success in front of their home support.

Sweden make this trip on the back of three straight defeats, and things look bleak for them. Russia have hit scoring form, and they should be able to tear through the visitors, who don’t look to be in the greatest shape at the back. Sweden haven’t beaten Russia in this century, and we can’t see that changing this week. A home win looks well priced in our eyes, so we’re backing the hosts to claim a 2-1 victory.

Head to Head

Russia claimed a 1-0 win when these two met in Euro 2016 qualifying. They haven't lost to the Swedes in the last four encounters.
