Kosovo vs Sweden Prediction & Match Preview


Kosovo vs Sweden Prediction & Match Preview



28 March 2021 18:45 UK/ 19:45 CET World Cup Qual

Kosovo will be looking to kick off their 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign in great manner when they take on Sweden at Stadium Fadil Vokrri. 

Kosovo are brimming with confidence ahead of Sunday’s clash as they rolled over Lithuania 4-0 in a friendly, but beating Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Co. is easier said than done. 

Lazio attacker Vedad Muriqi, who found the net against Lithuania, is widely expected to lead the line for the home team.

The Swedes, on the other hand, did well to beat Georgia 1-0 in the opening match of their World Cup qualifying campaign, with Viktor Claesson scoring the only goal of the match. 

Zlatan’s return to the national team undisputedly helped the Swedes regain a much-needed confidence, and seeing that Sunday’s match will be played behind closed doors, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Janne Andersson’s troops.

Team News:

With Sunday's game being followed by an international friendly with Estonia, Andersson is not expected to ring the changes to his Sweden XI.

Mattias Svanberg may replace veteran Sebastian Larsson, who completed the 90 minutes on Thursday, while Emil Krafth is an alternative to Mikael Lustig.

Either Ibrahimovic or Marcus Berg will partner Alexander Isak in attack with Emil Forsberg remaining among the replacements.

Barring any late fitness issues, Challandes is unlikely to make any alterations to the side which started the friendly against Lithuania.

Vedat Muriqi, who has returned to full fitness after a frustrating campaign with Lazio, will be aiming to add to his 11 goals from 27 appearances for his country.

Kosovo possible starting lineup:
Ujkani; Aliti, Hadergjonaj, Vojvoda, Dresevic, Berisha, Kryeziu, Zeneli, Celina, Rashica, Muriqi

Sweden possible starting lineup:
Nordfeldt; Lustig, Lindelof, Helander, Augustinsson; Kulusevski, Olsson, Svanberg, Claesson; Isak, Ibrahimovic
