Italy vs Sweden Preview

Italy vs Sweden

Competition – World Cup Qualifying

Stadium – Stadio Giuseppe Meazza

Date: 13th November 2017

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Italy welcome Sweden to Milan trailing 1-0 from the first leg.

The Swedes were not the better side in that first leg but they managed to secure a slender win as the Italians failed to capitalise on the many chances they created.

Italy will be confident that they can turn this game around at home as they have been impressive there.

The Italians showed some complacency when they drew 1-1 with Macedonia at home but their other home results has been impressive and they remain unbeaten there.

They have three wins and two draws from their last five home games.

A Jakob Johansson’s goal is what Sweden will look to protect when they visit Milan.

That win was their fifth on the bounce at home in this series and they have kept four clean sheets in that period.

Sweden’s away record is not as positive – they have won only two games and these were against Luxembourg and Belarus.

The other three games at France, Netherlands and Bulgaria were all losses.

It will be surprising if they turn their away form around and defeat the Italians in this game.
