Sweden vs Slovakia
International Friendlies
Date: Tuesday, 16 October 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Friends Arena (Solna).

Both Sweden and Slovakia will be hoping to boost up their confidence after a rather dismal start to their respective Nations League campaigns. The hosts will come in somewhat higher spirits given they avoided a defeat on Thursday when they drew 0-0 to World Cup hosts Russia.

Nevertheless, such result will likely count for little without a serious turnaround in form given Blagult fell 2-3 at home to Turkey on the opening Matchday of the competition.

Slovakia are in an ever worse shape. They lost both of their Nations League ties against Ukraine and Czech Republic and sit at the very foot of the Group 1 (League B) standings with zero points from two matches.

The most recent of failures came on Saturday afternoon when Marek Hamsik’s goal did nothing to prevent a 1-2 defeat to Czech Republic at City Arena Trnava.

Sweden vs Slovakia: Head-to-head

  • The head to head stats fancy Sweden who were the dominant force in the history of matches against the Falcons.
  • Sweden won three, drew two and lost none of five H2H games against Slovakia.
  • Slovakia only managed to score a single goal in these five outings.
  • Blagult won 6-0 in a NON-FIFA friendly played in January last year (both teams played without their main stars).

Sweden vs Slovakia: Prediction

Janne Andresson did well leading Sweden to the quarter-final at the World Cup in Russia this summer. However, he has huge issues with the lack of efficiency of late as Sweden failed to score against both Austria and Russia. They fell 2-3 to Turkey in between these two matches.

Slovakia skipped the biggest stage tournament this summer. They haven’t been quite consistent in recent friendlies either (we’ll ignore the 3-0 victory over Danish reserve squad in September). They are winless in last our remaining games, each of which saw them concede at least a goal.

Slovakia revealed way too many defensive holes recently and we see this match as a great chance for the Swedes to grow in confidence by netting two or more goals past the vulnerable opposition.
