Sweden and Finland will face each other in a friendly international this weekend. The match is slated to kick off at 5pm UK time on Saturday and will be held at the Friends Arena in Solna.

Sweden

Sweden will begin their preparations for the Euro 2020 finals this summer with a friendly against Finland on Saturday. Janne Andersson’s side have been pitted against Spain, Poland and Slovakia in Group E.

The Swedes will know that finishing in the top two of the group will be tough. Spain and Poland will probably the two favourites, but Sweden can stage an upset if they start strongly. For that, they need to do well in friendly games against teams such as Finland.

Team News:

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will miss the game against Finland as well as the European Championship this summer due to injury.

Finland

Like Sweden, Finland will also be using the friendly game on Saturday to prepare for the Euro 2020 finals. Markku Kanerva’s side have been drawn against Denmark, Belgium and Russia in Group B.

Belgium are the clear favourites in the group, and while Denmark have some good players, such as Christian Eriksen and Kasper Schmeichel, Flnland will feel that they can clinch the runners-up spot.

Team News:

Teemu Pukki will lead the line for Finland.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Sweden won their last game 1-0 against Estonia.
  • Finland lost 3-2 to Switzerland in their last game.
  • Sweden won all of their three games in March.
  • Finland did not win any of their three games in March.
  • Sweden have won 66 and lost 10 of their games against Finland.

Conclusion

Neither Sweden nor Finland will be particular bothered about the result. The match is more about the players playing together and about the performance level. A draw could be final outcome.
