Sweden v Spain Team News

Sweden sit second in the group five points behind leaders Spain and only one point adrift of 3rd placed Romania. Janne Andersson’s boys know that they have to get something out of this game to ensure they remain in the race. The Swedes walk into this clash on a high after a 4-0 drubbing of Romania and the side will be buoyed by Spain’s uninspiring performance in Norway and their current injury woes.

With that, the side is expected to start attacking from the start looking to surprise the 2010 world champions. With a decent performance in this campaign so far, Sweden have not lost a single game at home and will be looking to extend that streak.

Spain visit Sweden knowing that a point for them will be enough to secure qualification in next year’s competition. After faltering in Norway to a 1-1 draw, Roberto Moreno’s side will be eager to rectify their mistakes and come out with a result. This will not come easy against Sweden, a side known to fight tooth and nail for as result. The coach also has another headache to contend with - the injured players.

Spain’s squad against Norway was lacking in experience and depth with Mikel Oyarzabal, Rodrigo Moreno and Dani Ceballos all starting the game. The side would later go on and succumb to a draw after a late Joshua King penalty ensured the points were shared equally. A loss here will not seriously dent their qualification ambitions and the players might be complacent, much to the Swede’s joys.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Sweden boss Andersson has no fresh injury concerns and should field the same team that beat Malta.

There aren’t many expected changes in the Swedish squad with Emil Forsberg and Sebastian Larsson both expected to feature in the wide midfield flanks, although Manchester United's Victor Lindelof could come into the XI after missing out against Malta.

As for Spain, Jordi AlbaJose GayaIscoDani Parejo and Paco Alcacer and Alvaro Morata are not in the line up.

Gerard Moreno is set to start this match given his impressive exploits with Villareal this season while Dani Carvajal is doubtful. Inigo Martinez could come in for Raul Albiol at the back.

Sweden vs Spain Predictions

Even though the last 6 of Sweden’s 7 games have seen over 2.5 goals, this clash is expected to be a tight-knit affair. With just a point needed to secure qualification, the Spaniards will not have a sense of urgency and will most likely sit back and absorb the Swedish assault which is expected to start from kick off.

Spain have been imposing on their travels in recent qualification campaigns, unbeaten in eight qualifiers with seven wins in the process. La Roja have also scored in their last 17 European Championships qualifiers on the road and should be expected to find the net here. With Spain, even with the numerous injured players, quality is never lacking in the side and this should play out in Sweden.
