Sweden - Croatia

Odds: 2.24
Stake: 1

Match date: 14/11/2020
Sweden and Croatia are playing tonight match of the 5th round of Group C of the elite group of League of Nations, and poinst situation on the scale is such that both national teams are looking only to stay in the strongest rank of this competition (Portugal and France have 10 points).

One point is enough for Croatia for that goal, because after the victory in Zagreb 2:1 would have a better mutual score, while Sweden, after four defeats in this group, only needs a victory to prolong the uncertainty in the last round.

This duel is also in the shadow of Covid 19, so Sweden three days ago in Denmark (0:2 defeat in friendly match) was without five infected players (Victor Lindelof, Robin Olsen, Emil Krafth, Ken Sema, Filip Helander), but they are all returning for this duel with Croatia. Meanwhile, Starfel (Covid 19) dropped out and P. Jansson, Augustinsson and S. Andersson were injured.
Interestingly, the Swedish coach Janne Andresson is in self-isolation, so as in Denmark, he will be replaced by assistant coach Peter Wettergren.
He has nothing to calculate, he will send a very offensive line-up to the field in 4-4-2 formation with Isak and Berg in the attack, and Kulusevski and Forsberg are also extremely offensive winger, who can also change positions.

- We have to be more dangerous with the ball in our feet, be compact, concentrated. It is not the first time that we play with strong teams like Croatia, we already knew how to win in such matches, we can do it this time as well. The results, in the end, mean the most. We played well so far, but there were no victories, now we want to crown a good play with win - said the Swedish striker Berg, and the Swedes want a victory of at least two goals difference because then they would be better in mutual matches against Croatia, which can be also with a 1-0 victory.

Sweden's biggest weakness is defense, in Denmark they reacted very badly when both goals conceded, and in 26 games after the World Cup in Russia they conceded 29 goals.
But then what to say about Croatia, which in 22 games after the world silver medal received as many as 37 goals or 1.68 per game.
Coach Zlatko Dalic was desperate for defensive reactions after a 3-3 draw in Turkey on Wednesday, although he played a so-called reserve squad without a number of key players. However, the way in which Croatia receives goals in the League of Nations and in previous games is very worrying, and today's last line in the composition of Juranović - Uremović - Caleta Car - Barišić does not inspire much confidence.

Lovren is out because of cards, and Vida got Covid in Istanbul, while last night in Sweden the same happened to midfielder Brozović from Milan's Inter, and in this match will miss also right back Vrsaljko, forwards Kramarić and Rebić.

The only positive thing is that goalkeeper Livaković and striker Petković are returning in the squad, and captain Luka Modrić will play from the first minute. Dalic is not a coach who will play defensively and want result 0:0, he wants a victory, which he needs for many reasons after a series of failures lately.
The guests, just like the hosts, will want to score goals, this should be a very interesting match, full of rhythm and opportunity on both sides, and when that is the case, three goals in total could be a winning bet with an excellent odds.

Possible starting 11
Sweden: Olsen - Lustig, Lindelof, Helander, M. Olsson - Kulusevski, K. Olsson, Ekdal, Forsberg - Isak, Berg
Croatia: Livaković - Juranović, Uremović, Caleta Car, Barišić - Badelj, Kovačić - Vlašić, Modrić, Perišić - Brekalo"
WIN Score: 2:1 Profit: +1.24
