Both teams are without any points after the first two rounds, being behing the leaders Portugal and France. It’s not a good position to be in, so we expect to see some effort for them on Sunday.
Croatia made a solid preparation for this fixture. During the week the World Cup runners-up faced Switzerland in St. Gallen and enjoyed a 2-1 win. The Swiss team opened the score, but the Croatians turned it around with goals from Josip Brekalo and Mario Pasalic.
Croatia’s manager Zlatko Dalic clearly had his thought on Sunday’s game. Players like Modric, Perisic, Jedvaj, Budimir and Brozovic started from the bench against Switzerland. They were rested before facing Sweden, that’s obvious.
Sweden on the other hand had a really long trip to Russia where they managed to beat Sbornaya in a friendly game. The match was played at the VEB Arena in Moscow and it ended 1-2 for the Swedish team. Alexander Isak and Mattias Johansson scored for the Scandinavian team.
Sweden’s manager Janne Andersson used a typical 4-4-2 formation for this visit to the Russian capital. He put Isak and Jordan Larsson upfront while Sebastian Larsson and Ken Sema had to operate from the two wings. Sweden played a good enough game to win this difficult visit to Russia. It’s never an easy thing to win there.
These are our football best betting tips for the Nations League match between Croatia and Sweden on Sunday. Both teams are without any points in this group so far which means they are going to be really motivated to win.
