Football – Europe – UEFA Nations League Betting Tips

Tuesday night brings us the last of this week’s UEFA Nations League group matches and my next preview features Sweden taking on Russia as the betting tips continue in League B.

Sweden look to have their work cut out at their Friends Arena in Stockholm as they look to overhaul the current Group 2 leaders, Russia as they trail this evening’s opponents by three points  and perhaps most important of all, a three goal difference ahead of this crucial clash.

The hosts have produced mixed results so far in their Nations League campaign following a disappointing 3-2 loss at home to Turkey which raised a few eyebrows, along with a 0-0 draw away at Russia but then keeping themselves in the hunt for promotion with a 1-0 win away at Turkey.

Sweden desperately need all three points here along with goals but although they might just edge this one, it remains to be seen whether they can score the required goals as well. 

Russia seemingly hold all the aces ahead of their trip to Stockholm for this final match in Group 2 as they hold a very valuable three point lead over Sweden as well as what could prove to be a decisive +3 goal difference over their hosts.

The visitors have continued their impressive World Cup showing into this inaugural UEFA Nations League as they sit top of Group 2 courtesy of wins over Turkey 2-1 away and 2-0 at home, along with a point against Sweden in the 0-0 draw.

Since the World Cup finals, Russia have suffered just one defeat from their subsequent five matches which was a heavy 3-0 defeat away at Germany in a recent friendly, but it’s back to business this evening as they look to grab a result to seal promotion to League A.

However, it should be noted that Russia have gained just two away wins from their last 11 matches on the road, and while Sweden may eventually come up short in terms of goals, my betting tips suggest they can edge the win here.
