On October 11 2018 at 20:45 at the Stadion Kaliningrad in the forthcoming match of the UEFA Nations League the local Russian national team will play against the guests Sweden national team.
In their first round match of the Nations League Russia outplayed Turkey and that was what let them make it to the top of their group with 3 points gained. In that game they won with 2:1 score and it was a nice game for them. It seems to us that the Russians have gained a lot of confidence during the World Cup and now they go on with those same results. On September tenth they managed to create a real sensation. The Russians meet Czech Republic in a friendly game and they outplayed their competitors with the huge 5:1 score.
As for Sweden, they are on the last place in their group as they haven’t gained a single point yet. They played their first game against Turkey as they lost with 2:3 score in a very interesting game. It’s interesting the game was leading 2:0 at some point of the match and yet they lost in the end and they didn’t manage to keep the advantage they had.
Russia haven’t lost to Switzerland for four matches in a row already and at the domestic stadium they even won without missing goals. Of course, Russia are in great conditions and they are playing at home this time where they are strongly supported by their fans. That’s actually why it seems to us that the hosts are going to win this time.
