Sweden will leapfrog Spain at the top of Group B with a victory over Greece in Solna on Tuesday evening.

The Swedes have 12 points, one behind the Spaniards but with a game to spare. The Greeks, however, aren’t expected to make life easy for their hosts as they themselves are still in contention for either a top-place or second-place finish. They are currently in third spot with nine points. 

Sweden are coming off a 3-0 rout of Kosovo at Friends Arena last Saturday. Emil Forsberg (penalty), Alexander Isak and Robin Quaison all scored as the Swedes secured their third win in four matches. Their only loss in that stretch was a 2-1 defeat to the Greeks in Athens last month.

Greece followed up that victory with a 2-0 triumph at Georgia last Saturday with Anastasios Bakasetas and Dimitris Pelkas both netting goals in stoppage time.

Verdict

With the home crowd on their side, we expect Sweden to avenge their loss to Greece last month.
