The RUS vs SWE match preview –

Two countries who have had adverse conditions when it comes to weather will be competing against each other as Russia travel to Sweden to play a game in the UEFA Nation’s League.

Russia were the hosts of the recently concluded FIFA World Cup. The team progressed to the Quarter-Finals of the tournament. They showcased that they aren’t the minnows that the team used to be at one point. Some of their main players are injured and this could be a real problem for the team. But, the bench strength gets a chance to prove itself and it will be something that Stanislav Cherhesov will be looking to see a player who will rise up.

Meanwhile, Sweden have picked up where they left off at the same event. The team who was defensively sound is also scoring crucial goals. They are a real problem to play against and this is the kind of narrative that the team would be pushing in order to get some kind of intimidation. Sweden is on the verge of being considered one of the better teams in the world, and a strong performance in the UEFA Nation’s League will assert that claim.
