Two teams that were the first teams to have COVID cases among their ranks will lock horns on Monday, when Spain will play host to Sweden. All the players that were involved have been isolated and are not expected to play in this match.
Moreover, the entire Spanish squad has been vaccinated, which could potentially be a game-changing factor here.
Spain were excellent in the EURO Qualifiers where they remained undefeated in (and topped) a group that also featured Sweden, Norway, Romania, the Faroe Islands and Malta (8 wins, 2 draws), while scoring 31 goals and conceding just 5 in the process.
After that came a rather exciting UEFA Nations League bid, where Spain again finished at the top of their group with 3 wins, 1 loss and 2 draws. It was a tough group along with Germany, Switzerland and Ukraine, but Spain did destroy Germany by a massive 6-0 in the final match.
And, most recently, Spain played three 2022 World Cup Qualifiers, where they were stuck at a 1-1 draw against Greece before beating Georgia by 2-1 and Kosovo by 3-1. However, failing to keep clean sheets against such teams spells trouble for the Spanish defence, that will be missing Sergio Ramos (and all Real Madrid players for that matter).
Sweden were in the same EURO Qualifier group as Spain and managed to finish at the 2nd spot with 6 wins, 1 loss and 3 draws, scoring 23 goals and conceding 9 in the process.
Their only loss came by 3-0 on the road against Spain, but Sweden kept 5 clean sheets in the entire phase.
After that came the Nations League, where Sweden did not have a good time. But they were placed in one of the toughest groups in the competition along with France, Portugal and Croatia. It’s no wonder Sweden finished at the bottom of the group with 5 losses and just 1 win over Croatia.
Sweden were really good in the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers though, where they started off with a slim 1-0 win over Georgia at home, before beating Kosovo by 3-0 on the road. The big absence for Sweden in this tournament is the one of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who was going to play but was injured.
Spain vs Sweden Prediction:
Spain beat Sweden by 3-0 when the two teams met in the EURO Qualifiers, while the match in Sweden was a 1-1 draw. Both teams had some COVID cases among their ranks, and the Spanish team was vaccinated.
Sometimes people get side effects after a vaccination, and that might be the case with Spain here. The line has moved even further in Spain’s favour, so it might be time to back Sweden with +1.25 here.
The Under 2.5 Goals also is a nice option here, with Sweden always being a careful and compact side, and Spain having a long history of clean sheets at home ground. Taking the Under 2.5 Goals here.
