Sweden to win the game
Sweden have so far demonstrated excellent record in the World Cup qualifying campaign’s home matches. This is a continuation from the record that the team enjoyed while qualifying for the 2018 World Cup. The last home defeat suffered by Sweden in the qualification of a World Cup campaign was in 2013. Meanwhile, Kosovo have only been able to overcome Georgia in the last five competitive matches.
Sweden to win to nil
Sweden do not concede a lot of home goals and it is exemplified by the team registering a clean sheet in three out of the last five qualifiers at home. In fact, the only teams to score against Sweden in this run are former World Cup winners Spain and France. Kosovo might have scored in back-to-back away games, but they are not a great outfit on the road.
Total goals under 2.5
Sweden might be a defensively solid team, but they have not exactly scored a lot of goals. Apart from the 8-0 victory over Luxembourg, the return of goals has been very moderate for Sweden.
