Scandinavian rivals Sweden and Finland will lock horns at the Estadio Algarve in Portugal on Monday (January 9) in a friendly.
The Blagult failed to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar last year after losing to Poland in the playoffs, marking their first absence from the competition since 2014.
Janne Andersson’s side ended 2022 with a pair of friendly wins over Mexico and Algeria and will be keen to begin the new year on a winning note.
Sweden vs Finland Prediction
Sweden are the better team, but Andersson has called up a largely inexperienced squad, as most of his first-team players have returned to their clubs.
Finland, too, will be missing out on key players such as Teemu Pukki and will be relying on inexperienced young guns for the clash.
With very little quality on display, there could be little goalmouth action, which could result in a low-scoring draw.
Prediction: Sweden 1-1 Finland
