Prediction of the Slovenia vs Sweden match in the framework of the League of Nations

Ljubljana will host a UEFA Nations League first leg match between Slovenia and Sweden on 2 June 2022 at the Stožice stadium in Ljubljana. Full statistics and current odds for the match can be found at 1xbet eu.

Slovenia’s national team form

It is rare for a national team to be selected for a major international tournament. In the 21st century, the Greens-and-Whites qualified for the continental championships just once, in 2000, and twice more World Cups, without reaching the play-offs in either case. Matjaz Kek’s side failed to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, finishing just fourth in their group ahead of the Slovak Republic, Russia and Croatia. Now, it would be great if the Slovenians would play in the UEFA Nations League to have another chance to qualify for the next big tournament.

Sweden’s form

The Swedes have become a regular participant in big international tournaments in recent years, but their World Cup in 2022 saw them fail to qualify for the tournament. They finished only second in their group stage qualifying, losing by four points to Spain before Jann Andersson’s men headed to the knockout phase. In the semi-finals, they managed to beat the Czech Republic 1-0 in extra time, but in the decisive game they failed to cope with the Polish national team, losing 0-2. Now, we won’t see the Swedes in Qatar, but they will still be dangerous in the UEFA Nations League.

History of head-to-head encounters between Slovenia and Sweden

There have only been two head-to-head encounters between the teams in their history. Both times, their friendlies were friendly matches: in 2008, Sweden’s players were victorious – 1-0, while in 2016, the opponents were unable to decide the winner, playing a 0-0 draw.

Bets and predictions from professionals

Slovenia and Sweden have failed to qualify for the 2022 World Cup, so they must now take the UEFA Nations League as seriously as possible, after all it might allow them an extra chance to qualify for Euro 2024. The Yellow-Blues have a slightly better chance of success in the upcoming game, as they have more international experience, and their squad is more balanced and well-trained. As a result, we are forced to bet on the victory of the Swedish team with the odds of about 2.35.

The Swedes are a pragmatic team that can defend their advantage splendidly, however, if the Yellow and Blue concede first, they rarely manage to get back into the game. This is best illustrated by the fact that in the last six matches involving the wards of Janne Andersson, there has never been an exchange of goals. In the upcoming encounter, we shouldn’t expect that to happen and the best option for the forecast is “Both teams to score – No” with odds close to 1.80.

Alexander Isak is gradually turning into a key forward for Sweden. During last season’s World Cup-2022 qualifier this young player scored four goals in ten games to become the top scorer in his national team. Yes, last season for Real Sociedad was not as productive as the season before, as he only scored six goals, but he was always very decent in the national team. In such a situation, it is worth taking a closer look at the bet on Aleksandr Isak’s goal with the odds of about 3.25.

Our prediction: Sweden win at odds of 2.35 on 1xbet.
