Sweden has this night a very important duel for their classification and, therefore, also very important for Spain (follow the game live on As.com). They will enjoy the opportunity to be first in the group and, thus, put pressure on Spain in the face of the game that will be played on November 14 in Seville. Winning today means for the Swedes the certainty that that game in a month’s time will be a final to get a place in the World Cup.
Sweden It has a high and a low with respect to the comfortable 3-0 they achieved last Saturday against Kosovo. Up they lose to Kulusevski, who saw the yellow and will have to serve a penalty, so Quaison will supply you at eleven. But more important is the Lindelöf recovery. The Manchester United center-back did not play against Kosovo after being a father for the second time.
For its part, Greece you do not want to be left behind in the fight for qualification and also opts for that first place, although for this he would not only have to win today but also depends on what Spain and Sweden do in the November break.
