Spain – Sweden
First place will be on the line in Group B of the World cuo qualifiers as Spain and Sweden go head to head at the Estadio de La Cartuja on Sunday. Spain currently sit top of the table with 16 points from seven games, one point above Sweden, who have enjoyed a thrilling campaign so far. Spain returned to winning ways on Thursday as they saw off a dogged Greece side 1-0. Luis Enrique’s men have now won each of their last three games in the World Cup qualifiers.
Meanwhile, Sweden were denied a third win on the bounce last time out when they fell to a 2-0 loss against Georgia. Prior to that, Jan Andersson’s men saw off Kosovo and Greece in their previous two outings, scoring five goals and conceding none in that time.
Spain have a slight upper hand in the history of this fixture, claiming six wins from the last 16 meetings between the teams. Sweden have picked up four fewer wins, while six games have ended all square. This game has all the makings of a thrilling and absorbing contest as just one point separates the sides at the summit of the group. We predict the Spaniards will make use of their home advantage and come away with all three points.
This match will be played on 14/11/2021 at 21:45.
