Sweden vs Portugal PredictionHaving strolled to victory in their opening Nations League fixture, Portugal will be looking to make it six points from six when they lock horns with Portugal at Friends Arena on Tuesday evening.
Match status: 2020 UEFA Nations League
Kick-off:
Venue: Friends Arena (Stockholm)
Glancing through Group A3, you will sense a pretty difficult pack on paper. With the likes of France, Portugal and Croatia clustered together in a group, it was always going to difficult to predict a winner. The race for qualification is likely to go right down to the wire.

While Portugal recorded a win last time out, Sweden narrowly lost out to France. Now, the Swedes will be desperate for some result against Portugal to get their campaign up and running. Expect a convincing show from Blagult come kickoff.

Sweden vs Portugal Team News

Not one of the favorites to topple their group, Sweden will rather focus on avoiding relegation from League A. In fact, it was no surprise seeing the Swedes lose out to France in their opening fixture of the tournament.

Perhaps, it was more shocking that they were not defeated by a larger margin as Les Bleus could only muster a single goal against them. The Blue and Yellow were horrific in that game, and did not deserve to come away with a result.

Had it not been for the profligacy of the Frenchmen, Andersson’s men should have been defeated by a larger margin. Kylian Mbappe’s 41st minute effort was the difference between the two sides at fulltime as Sweden were condemned to defeat.

Blagult headed into this tournament in fine form, enjoying a brilliant run in the European Championship qualifiers. Having amassed a whopping 21 points from 10 games, Sweden finished second in Group F, beating the likes of Norway and Romania to that spot.

This shows that the Swedes are not one to be written off. On their day, they are capable of giving the strongest teams a run for their money. If Portugal approach this game with complacency, they are very likely to be upstaged.

A Selecao were in red-hot form in their opening fixture against 2018 World Cup finalists Croatia. They never looked phased by the opposition, bossing Vatreni in every single department on the pitch. Their fine play was rewarded with an emphatic 4-1 victory.

The defending champions enjoyed a stellar match, registering a couple of goals to send Croatia sinking in the ground. Joao Cancelo, Diogo Jota, Joao Felix and Andre Silva got in amongst the goals as the Portuguese bagged all three points comfortably.

Impressively, they achieved this feat in the absence of the legendary Cristiano Ronaldo. With the five-time Balon d’Or winner set to be available for selection this time, the Swedes could be in for a very long night in Solna.

Portugal are the current holders of the Nations League title, having triumphed in the previous edition. They defeated the Netherlands by a lone-goal to lift the prestigious trophy. Surely, they will be hoping for a repeat of that success this term.
