MATCH PREVIEW

Tonight Italian national football team hosts the guests from Sweden at Guiseppe Meazza/San Siro. The Scandinavians have won the first game three days ago thanks to the Jacob Johansson’s funny goal. The Northern squad came to Milan with a small advantage. The four-time World champions have not failed to reach the final since 1958.The Azzurri will play under a huge pressure to miss an upcoming Mundial. Who will qualify to the worldwide football forum after the second leg?
The draw for the UEFA zone took place on 25 July 2015 in St. Petersburg. Italy was redirected to the group G along with Albania, Israel, Macedonia and Liechtenstein. But the presence of Spain made a direct promotion to World Cup incredibly difficult. The Italians had a tough job to overcome the Spaniards. Anyway the Azzurri lost the crucial away game against La Furia Roja after drawing with her on home ground. This drop split the couple of favorites. And Giampiero Ventura’s team could not regain the point difference. The total Italian record consists of seven win, two draw and one loss mentioned above. They scored 21 goals and conceded eight times.

Sweden had two mighty competitors in the group A. The Scandinavians demonstrated some predictable results having won over the weaker teams such as Luxembourg, Bulgaria and Belarus. H2H with France is notable with the mutual victories. The Swedish-Dutch duel includes a draw and the Netherlands’ win. The Swedes have also an unexpected loss in Bulgaria. The final ranking is the following. The Blues are the winners. The Yellow-Blues and Oranges are the tie-breakers. The first ones got the promotion to the play-off thanks to the better goal difference.
Italy has only one missing footballer. Marco Verratti is suspended and will not play tonight. The appearance of Bonucci and Zaza is doubtful. On the Swedish side, Jimmy Durmaz is not fully fit. All other players are ready to enter on San Siro Stadium.

These national teams met twice within the last couple of years. Italy took 1:0 victory in Euro-2016. And Sweden has won with the same score three days ago.

The Swedes are a quite strong home team. But their recent away record contains three losses including to the Bulgarians.
The Italians are unbeaten at home in terms of this qualification. They have even a neutral issue against the Spaniards.

The logics dictate home team will score at least once and its multiple goals will spell danger for Sweden. We expect a great and tough game on Monday night. The hosts will implement an aggressive manner from the very beginning. And their class will shine through in the end. Hence, we predict Italy will qualify to the World Cup and recommend to bet on this with a remarkable coefficient 1.80.
