Live Football: Sweden vs Russia UEFA Nations League stream info, squads, lineups & TV channels
Sweden host Russia in the last League B fixture of the maiden Nations League edition on Tuesday evening at Friends Arena in Solna. Sbornaya dominated proceedings in Group 2 picking up seven points from three matches. They entered November’s final two fixtures of the group as pace-setters.
Russia travelled to Leipzig to play a high-profile friendly against Germany hoping to take advantage of Die Mannschaft’s slower run of form in recent months. Nonetheless, Stanislav Cherchesov’s men failed to claim a big scalp as they fell 3-0 on Thursday night at Red Bull Arena. Leroy Sane, Niklas Sule and Serge Gnabry notched three first-half goals to secure the victory for the Germans on the occasion.
We have to mention Cherchesov was without his main striker Artem Dzyuba who will also skip Tuesday’s clash at Friends Arena through injury. Russians generally have plenty of troubles with njured players ahead of the trip to Scandinavia given they will also be without their main creators Denis Cheryshev and Aleksandr Golovin who are both injured.

Sweden vs Russia Match Stats
- The draw was the most frequent of outcomes in the history of head to head matches between these two likes.
- It happened four times in nine games so far.
- Teams shared spoils in a goalless draw when they met each other a month ago in Kaliningrad.
- All of last six head to head contests saw fewer than three goals scored.
Sweden will also be without the heart of their midfield as their No 10 playmaker Emil Forsberg will skip the Russia tie. Marcus Berg will be the man to watch out here, but he will face hard times breaking the stern defense of Russia’s here.
Prior to the mentioned defeat to Germany, Russia kept back-to-back clean sheets against Sweden and Turkey. Based on everything written above, the Under 2.5 goals FT looks just to be the way to go here and we will back it as a banker bet at 1.61.
