Sweden will welcome back skipper and defensive rock Andreas Granqvist who missed the Turkey tie through illness. The centre-back has generated a lot of interests from top clubs especially Manchester United as he looks to put up a good show ahead of the January transfer window. Fellow centre-back Victor Lindelof has endured another frustrating run of games with Manchester United and the international matches is a breath of fresh air for the Swede.
Russia have not had problems scoring goals, and with the line-up boasting likes of Denis Cheryshev, the reason becomes obvious. The Valencia winger is an important member of the Russian squad, and his exploits at the World Cup is still fresh in the minds of many. Their problem is defence which has not kept a clean sheet for a long time. The retirement of Igor Akeenfev will hardly have an impact on the team as the Russians have a good backup in the form of Alexander Lunev and Marinato Guilherme. But it is the leadership qualities of the CKSA Moscow keeper which will be missed for sure. The hosts go into the game as favourites and it will take a mighty effort from the Swedes to stop them.
