Sweden will continue their World Cup 2022 qualification campaign at home to Kosovo on Saturday evening. Janne Andersson's side are currently second in the section with nine points to show from four matches, while Kosovo occupy fourth, having claimed four points from their first five fixtures.

Sweden will be looking to bounce back from their disappointing defeat to Greece when they continue their World Cup qualification campaign against Kosovo; Andersson's side were searching for their fourth straight victory in Athens last month but were on the wrong end of a 2-1 scoreline. The Blue and Yellows have still made an encouraging start to their qualification campaign, though, beating Georgia, Kosovo and Spain in their opening three matches to collect nine points. Sweden are currently second in Group B, three points ahead of third-placed Greece but four points behind Spain; La Roja, though, have played two games more, collecting 13 points from six matches. Blagult, who were runners-up at the 1958 World Cup, reached the quarter-finals of the 2018 edition of the tournament, while they made the round of 16 at this summer's European Championship. Sweden will be taking on Kosovo for just the second time in their history, and they recorded a 3-0 victory when the two international sides locked horns in the reverse game back in March.

Kosovo, meanwhile, will enter the match off the back of a 2-0 defeat to Spain last month, and a total of four points from five games has left Bernard Challandes's side in fourth position in the table. The visitors have a lot of work to do in order to seriously challenge for qualification, but it is difficult to imagine a scenario where they finish first or second in the group. Kosovo only picked up one point from their 10 qualification matches for the 2018 World Cup, while they also struggled to compete during their Euro 2020 challenge. Challandes's side were well beaten by Sweden in the reverse match back in March, but they have picked up four points from their last three games in the section, including a draw against Greece last month, and the underdogs are certainly capable of making this a tricky match for the home side.


Betting Verdict:

This will be as comfortable as some are expecting, as Kosovo's squad, and indeed starting XI, will be packed full of talent. That said, Sweden will be desperate to bounce back from their defeat to Greece, and we believe that the home side will have enough to put three points on the board.
