Sweden will be looking for an improved result here after a 2-0 Euro - Qualifiers defeat last time out to Austria.
Christoph Baumgartner (81', 89') scored for Austria.
Fixtures featuring Sweden have often been exciting ones recently with high scoring expected. Over their past half dozen games alone, the sum total of 20 goals have gone in for both teams combined (at an average of 3.33 goals per game) with 13 of those belonging to Sweden.
Last time out, Austria drew 1-1 in the International Friendlies match with Moldova.
The only name on the scoresheet from Austria was Michael Gregoritsch (50'). Vitalie Damaşcan (3') was the scorer for Moldova.
In their previous six clashes, Austria have bagged the sum of 12 goals. Austria have also not failed to score in every single one of those games. During those fixtures, they’ve seen 4 goals go into their own net. That trend won’t necessarily be sustained here, however.
Head to head

Owing to a completely injury-free group to pick from, the Austria boss Ralf Rangnick doesn’t have any fitness worries to report ahead of this clash.
In our opinion, Austria will manage to put a goal past this Sweden team, but it is unlikely to be enough to prevent defeat.
We reckon that it will be both teams to score in a 2-1 winning margin for Sweden at the end of the 90 minutes. Should be an interesting one.
