Reason for Greece vs Sweden Predictions
Greece was held to a 1:1 stalemate when visiting Kosovo on Sunday. They lost 2:1 in a friendly against Switzerland just four days earlier, but that remains their only defeat across the last twelve encounters. On the other hand, the Greeks have managed to win just one of their previous five matches and have failed to keep a clean sheet in seven consecutive meetings. Four of those seven clashes finished in draws, all with the same score of 1:1. Two of Greece’s last five games resulted in over 2,5 goals, while all five saw both involved nations to score. It has been seldom in recent games where Greece have shown defensive steel. In fact, Greece has been scored against in 6 of their previous six matches, shipping seven goals during that time. Vangelis Pavlidis is a true leader in the club and the national team. Anastasios Douvikas enjoys the field, and when he receives the ball and heads towards the goal, the opponent has problems. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
The last meeting between the teams of Greece and Sweden took place over thirteen years ago when the Swedes won 2:0 in a game of Euro 2008 group stage. They have met two more times this century, with all three encountered finishing in different outcomes, as Greece and Sweden triumphed once and the other ended in a draw. Two of the matches featured over 2,5 goals, and both of the same also witnessed goals at both ends. Sweden prevailed 2:1 over visiting Uzbekistan at home on Sunday. They have not lost during the regular 90 minutes in eleven consecutive meetings, with their elimination at Euro 2020 coming after extra time. Only one of the Swedes last sixteen encounters ended in a victory for the nation listed as visitor, as the hosts triumphed on thirteen occasions for the period. Mattias Svanberg plays excellently and does not allow the opponent to play in the middle of the field. Alexander Isak is a talented striker playing in Real Sociedad, and he is expected to score as many goals as possible and bring joy to his nation.
It is going to be an exciting clash, as Greece is not without a chance of remaining undefeated. However, we believe Sweden should meet the expectations and deliver a win.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
