Sweden vs Turkey Prediction Today
The Turks will travel to the north of the continent to settle for Sweden in the second round of the UEFA Nations League, Monday night on the Friends Arena.
Like the Turks, the Swedes will enter this game with slightly weak morale after defeating the 0-2 score suffered in the friendly match with Austria last Thursday.
The Scandinavians had a disappointing performance, failing to threaten Austria’s goal throughout the game. However, we have to mention that the winner Janne Andersson sent his team to the Vienna team, who preferred to save his base players for his debut in the UEFA Nations League.The only major absence of Sweden is the RB Leipzig player Emil Forsberg who has not been called to the national team this time.
However, Marcus Berg is expected to lead the attack line and cause serious defensive problems for Turkey after he scored eight goals in the qualifying stage for the World Cup in Russia.Interestingly, Sweden defeated Turkey only once in its 8 direct meetings so far. The Turks were forced every time in the last two meetings, with the same score of 2-1 (in 2014 and 2016). Both teams scored in 4 of the last five direct matches.

Turkey no longer has talented players from previous generations, and this can be seen by the lack of results lately.
However, the Turks have a big name on the bench in the person of Mircea Lucescu, but former coach of Sahtior Donetsk faces big problems due to the lack of meticulousness of the players responsible for the defensive phase.
Despite the weak defense of the defensive, the Turks have managed to score every time in the matches played this year. Given that the Swedes are just starting out in this competition, and for the Turks this match could be decisive for the team that will take the first position at the end of the group, I believe the selected team trained by Mircea Lucescu will be forced to attack and will succeed score at least in the blank.
