Mircea Lucescu’s troops are four points behind Russia at the top of the standings with just this game left to play. Sweden are third at the moment with a two-point deficit to the Crescent-Stars, but a win here would get them three points short off Sbornaya Komanda with whom they are also to play on Tuesday in the last game of the campaign.

Turkey vs Sweden: Head-to-head

Turkey were much more successful in the history of head to head games with Sweden.

They won four, drew four and lost just one coming into the landmark 10th encounter against Blagult.

It is interesting to mention that each of last three head to head affairs saw Turkey winning with the option of both teams scoring a goal.

Lucescu’s men pulled off a huge comeback when they dispatched Sweden in the first game of the inaugural Nations League season. They ad a two-goal deficit at Friends Arena in September, but managed to turn it around in the second half with a super-late brace from substitute Emre Akbaba.

Turkey vs Sweden: Prediction

Lucescu is expected to line-up his strongest squad possible featuring Hakan Calhanoglu, Cengiz Under and Cenk Tosun. Enes Unal is also a decent alternative option in the final third. His colleague at the opposite side will be without his main star Emil Forsberg. Ola Toivonen has retired from the national team meaning Swedish attacking options are fairly limited here.

This is why Blagult struggled for goals in their recent outings. The team notched just one goal in last two matches in October (a 0-0 draw to Russia and a 1-1 draw to Slovakia). The hosts also failed to find the back of the net in the pair of their respective fixtures in October against Bosnia-Herzegovina (0-0) and Russia (0-2).

The Under 2.5 goals FT is by far the best of betting options you can back here.

Turkey vs Sweden: Bet Tips

  • Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.61 (8/13)
  • Under 0.5 goals in the first half @ 2.50 (6/4).
