Sweden vs Portugal prediction and match preview

Sweden would have been pleased with their performance against France on Matchday 1 of the UEFA Nations League despite suffering a 1-0 defeat against the world champions. However, Janne Andersson's men need to get a positive result against Portugal in order to stand any sort of chance of progressing into the next round of the tournament. New Juventus star Dejan Kulusevski was left on the bench for the game against France but is likely to earn a place in the starting line-up for Sweden when they host Portugal.

Meanwhile, Portugal got off to a terrific start in their opening game of the UEFA Nations League, hammering World Cup 2018 finalists Croatia 4-1 despite the absence of talisman Cristiano Ronaldo. Joao Cancelo, Diogo Jota, Joao Felix and Andre Silva all got on the scoresheet for Portugal. The defending champions will look to earn all three points against Sweden before their crunch encounter against world champions France next month. The big news for Portugal is Cristiano Ronaldo is back and is likely to replace Diogo Jota in the starting line-up. Our Sweden vs Portugal prediction is that Portugal will come away with the win.
