Sweden - Kosovo
Sweden are second and four points behind Spain in Group B but if they win both of their games in hand during this international break then they will go top. Kosovo will be slightly disappointed with a record of just one win from five qualifiers to date. They lost the reverse match 3-0 on home soil. Sweden have recorded World Cup qualification wins at home to Spain, Italy and France in their last five, stretching back to 2017, so they will expect three points here. Mattias Johansson, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Isaac Thelin have all withdrawn from the Sweden squad. In-form coventry striker Viktor Gyokeres has been called up as a result. Victor Lindelof was late to link up with the Sweden squad due to personal reasons but should be fine to stat if selected. Filip Helander, his usual centre-back partner, is not in the squad, however. Dejan Kulusevski should move from the wing to start up front alongside Real Sociedad starlet Alexander Isak. Mattias Svanberg, Albin Ekdal and Kristoffer Olsson are in competition for two places in central midfield, while in goal it is battle between Robin Olsen and Kristoffer Nordfeldt. Kosovo have Besar Halimi and Lirim Kastrati back from suspension for the trip to Sweden and both are expected to start.Pick: Over (2.5)
