Prediction: Sweden to win 3-0

Best Odds: 13/2

Bookmaker: Betfair

Sweden and Armenia will face each other in a friendly international this weekend. The match is slated to kick off at 7:45pm UK time on Saturday and will be held at Venue Friends Arena in Solna.

Sweden 

Sweden will be looking to use the match against Armenia as a warm-up game to the Euro 2020 finals this summer. Janne Andersson’s side’s game against Armenia is their final friendly before they kick off their Group E campaign with a match against Spain.

The Blue and Yellow will head into the match against Armenia on the back of a 2-0 win against Finland. Robin Quaison and Sebastian Larsson scored the goals.

Team News:

Quaison will lead the line for Sweden, while  Marcus Berg should also start in attack.

Armenia

Armenia are a European minnow, and, as expected, they could not qualify for the Euro 2020 finals. It is hard to see Joaquín Caparros’s side make it through to a big competition anytime soon, but hope springs eternal, especially as they have a player such as Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Armenia will head into the match against Sweden on the back of an encouraging 1-1 draw with Croatia. Ivan Persic put Croatia in the lead after 24 minutes, but Wbeymar Angulo restored parity for Armenia in the 72nd minute.

Team News:

Sargis Adamyan and Tigran Barseghyan are likely to start for Armenia.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Sweden have won their last two international friendly matches.
  • Armenia have drawn their last three international friendly matches.
  • Sweden have won five of their last six matches in all competitions.
  • Armenia are unbeaten in their last nine matches in all competitions.
  • Armenia have won all three of their 2022 World Cup qualifiers so far.

Conclusion

Armenia showed against Croatia that they are not easy pushovers and will not make it easy against Sweden. However, the Swedes will be determined to win their final warm-up game before the Euro 2020 finals kick off.

Prediction: Sweden to win 3-0

Best Odds: 13/2
