Our prediction for this Nations League match:
Portugal will be looking to cement top position in Group 3 when they take on Sweden on Wednesday evening. A Selecao have been impressive at the back in the Nations League this term, with the team conceding no more than one goal in the process. Fernando Santos’ men did well to hold France to a goalless draw in round 3, and they should now take advantage of Sweden’s poor form.
Despite failing to find the net in Stade de France showdown, Cristiano Ronaldo will be the man to watch in the home team. The Swedes suffered a loss in each of their first three group games, and, no doubt, they have little to play for in Wednesday’s football match. When the two teams met in Stockholm last month Ronaldo’s brace helped Portugal beat Sweden, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. The good news for the visitors is that experienced midfielder Gustav Svensson returns from suspension.
