Before heading into this Monday Euro qualifying battle, both teams have already been involved in several other games. Let’s check out the latest results that they have been getting to have an idea about their current form.
Recent form in all competition (last five matches): LWWWW
After their disappointing UEFA Nations League defeat against Croatia, La Furia Roja has improved their results. Enrique’s side have won all of their latest four fixtures following that previous loss.
Spain’s most latest result was a comfortable 4-1 away victory against lowly San Marino’s team. Nevertheless, playing against Sweden will be much harder that’s why the home team must play hard from the start.
Recent form in all competition (last five matches) :LDWDW
The Blue and Yellow squad have been doing a decent job of late winning two, drawing two and losing one from their last five. Janne Anderson’s side also picked up a victory on their latest qualifying match, beating Malta 3-0.
Although their opponent are not the strongest rival, that result should still boost Sweden’s confidence. Playing away from home could force them to play more on the counter attack this upcoming Monday.
Enrique set to make some changes in the team’s lineup compared to what they put out in previous match. David De Gea could return into the goal, replacing Kepa, who started in their previous game.
Alvaro Morata set to lead the line with Marco Asensio and potentially Iago Aspas completing La Furia Roja’s front three. Sergio Busquets could also return into the midfield again for this potentially difficult encounter.
Andersson’s team are being prepared in the best possible fashion as they’re targeting at least a point. Sebastian Larsson is reportedly set to get a spot in that starting line up as an attempt to improve The Red and Blue squad.
Marcus Berg is also ready to contribute straight from kick off in place of Quaison. Emil Forsberg will be a key figure in providing creative passes for his team’s lone striker.
Head to Head Records:
In their last five meetings, Spain slightly edging their opponent with three victories and two defeats.
Their latest match up was way back on June 14th, 2008, which resulted in a 2-1 victory for La Furia Roja.
Eager to keep their Euro 2020 going La Furija Roja must battle heard in search for victory. Fighting Sweden won’t be an easy task, especially since they enemy will do their best in trying to stop Spain from scoring.
The away team are also ready to stun every Spain fans at Bernenau, by taking down Les Bleus. Spain are considered as favorite to win on Monday, but Anderson’s men can always trouble their opponent.
Final Score: 2-0
