Sweden v Turkey UEFA Nations League Preview, 10th September 7.45pm
This has the look of being a tight tussle in the Nations League on Monday. Sweden aren’t a bad side at all but lack a bit of punch up front. They will be keen to start their Nations League in a positive manner on home soil as they host Turkey. Turkey played out a friendly draw with Russia in midweek as a warm-up.

Sweden News and Form
The Swedes take on their first challenge in the Nations League on the weekend as they meet with Turkey. Sweden enjoyed a good strong World Cup 2018 qualification campaign where they beat the Netherlands down in third place. The Swedes then took out Italy in the World Cup qualification playoffs and made a run through to the quarter finals at Russia 2018. They aren’t a side who consistently look a threat in front of goal at all and under 2.5 goals at Paddy Power leads our Sweden v Turkey betting tips at 4/7 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 7th, 2018 at 5:39 p.m.).
Six of Sweden’s last nine games have gone under the goal line. They went up against Austria in midweek as a warm-up ahead of the Nations League and suffered a 2-0 away defeat. We have to look at both teams NOT to score for this fixture which is an option to be backed at 8/11 odds with Paddy Power* (Betting Odds were taken from September 7th, 2018 at 5:39 p.m.). Both teams have NOT scored in eight of their last nine games played, competitive and friendly matches combined.
Turkey News and Form
Turkey got off to a losing start in their UEFA Nations League campaign as they were beaten by Russia on Friday. Turkey lost that 2-1 on home soil so immediately they are under big pressure in this group now. Turkey are not a side carrying much form though as they are just W2 D4 L5 in their last eleven games played since the beginning of September last year. They have scored consistently, having found the back of the net in each of their last five fixtures. They have some problems at the back though.
Turkey have collected only the one clean sheet in their last eleven games so clearly have some issues there. In the Paddy Power correct score market a Sweden 1-0 option does have some good appeal at 9/2 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 7th, 2018 at 5:39 p.m.). Turkey are on a six-match winless streak away from home with a D4 L2 record. So there is a bit of resilience from them, but it may be a stretch to actually go and expect them to collect a win away from home.
Sweden v Turkey Head to Head
Turkey have won the last two fixtures between the two nations by a 2-1 scoreline, the most recent of which was back in 2016. The Turks are unbeaten in three against the Swedes now and are up in the overall head to head between the two. Turkey holds a W4 D4 L2 record against the Swedes. They have not met in Sweden since 1995 though when there was a 2-2 draw.
Who will win – Sweden v Turkey Predictions
Sweden were competitive on home soil in their World Cup 2018 qualification group and we can take enough from that to see them just edge their way past the Turks. Neither are partially good in the final third of the pitch, but home advantage may be telling.
