Our prediction for this Nations League match:
Friends Arena will host Saturday’s Nations League clash between Sweden and Croatia, the two teams who have been struggling in the UEFA competition this season. The Swedes suffered a loss in each of their first four group games, but a win over Croatia could see them climb to third place in the standings. Filip Helander has overcome his injury, while Marcus Danielson is back to contention after recovering from coronavirus.
Midtjylland rising star Jens-Lys Michel Cajuste could make his Sweden debut against Croatia, while Manchester United blocked defender Victor Lindelof from joining the Sweden squad due to COVID-19 travel restrictions. The likes of Josip Juranovic, Toma Basic, Antonio-Mirko Colak, Lovre Kalinic, and Marin Pongracic have received their first call-ups for the visiting team, but none of them should start against Sweden. A man to watch in the away team will be Real Madrid ace Luka Modric, who is likely to help the Croats picked up one point from the match.
