Both Sweden and Serbia have made an identical start to the 2022/23 Nations League in League B, Group B4, losing and winning one each from their opening two games this month, conceding the lead to early table-toppers Norway, who have looked commanding with Erling Haaland leading the line.

Serbia were exposed to his wrath in their opening match, falling 1-0 to Stale Solbakken’s men on home soil after the Manchester City marksman bagged in the 26th minute, but they recovered in game two against Slovenia, winning 4-1 at the Red Star Stadium to put them second in the table on goal difference.

Sweden meanwhile beat Slovenia comfortably as well, winning 2-0 in their curtain-raising fixture, before also buckling under the weight of Haaland’s presence, with the Norwegian sensation netting a brace against his Scandinavian counterparts on Sunday as Janne Andersson’s side came up short 2-1.

Sweden vs Serbia match stats

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic got on the scoresheet last time out against Slovenia, but the Lazio midfielder also turned provider as he set up Aleksandar Mitrovic’s deadlock-breaker, which is a common theme of his game in the Italian top flight. In fact, only Domenico Berardi (14), Hakan Calhanoglu (12) and Nicolo Barella (12) registered more assists in Serie A last season than Milinkovic-Savic (11), so expect the towering Serb to attempt to play playmaker once again here.

Dragan Stojkovic has a number of talented players he can turn to, with many dubbing this iteration of the nation a ‘Golden Generation’, not least recent Europa League winner Filip Kostic, who has ganered a reputation for his exploits on the wing. For Frankfurt last season he registered 30 shots from outside the box; only Maximilian Arnold (37), Vincenzo Grifo (40), Anton Stach (40) and Leroy Sane (48) registered more in the Bundesliga.
