Scots and Swedes seek success

Scotland and Sweden find themselves in action in the UEFA Nations League on Monday night and both will fancy their chances of securing victories in Glasgow and Stockholm respectively.

Scotland to win to zero @ 31/20

The Scots will be desperate to get started with competitive football after their 4-0 friendly defeat at the hands of Belgium on Friday night.

Alex McLeish’s side were competitive in the first half and there were positive performances from the likes of John McGinn and debutant John Souttar.

However, the Scots were made to pay for errors in the second half by a star-studded Belgian side and the scoreline reflected the gulf in class.

Expect McLeish to make some changes, with striker Leigh Griffiths a doubt but there should be much more to come from this Scotland side when Albania head to Hampden.

The Albanians beat Israel on Friday but have only scored two goals in their last four outings.

Scotland will have the determination to get off to a winning start in the Nations League and a confident win over Albania should be the perfect remedy after the humbling against Belgium.

Sweden to win @ 11/10

The Swedes will also fancy their chances of getting back to winning ways as they prepare to host Turkey in Stockholm on Monday.

Sweden managed to come through a tough group at the World Cup in Russia, which included the likes of Germany and Mexico, to reach the quarter-final stages of the tournament.

No longer relying on striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic to bail them out, Sweden are now the epitome of a team that works as a unit.

Not the most creative team but one that can grind out results and they will be determined to bounce back after a 2-0 away defeat in Austria.

Turkey could provide the perfect opponents as they have only managed two wins in their last 10 outings and may well struggle away from home once more.
