SPAIN V SWEDEN
Their latest results shine a light on the fact that there has been much resilience in the Spain defence. La Furia Roja have been mean at the back, resulting in the total number of goals that have flown into the back of their net over the course of their past 6 clashes standing at 3.
Sweden head into the game following on from a 3-1 International Friendlies win vs Armenia in their last match.
Over the course of their previous half-dozen clashes, Sweden have bagged a tally of 12 goals. Blågult have additionally got on the scoresheet in every single one of those games. Over that period, they have had 5 goals go into their own net. Nonetheless, we will just have to wait and see whether that trend might continue on in this match.
Prediction: Both teams to score
FORTALEZA V SPORT RECIFE
Fortaleza, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 0-3 Copa do Brasil triumph against Ceará.
Their more recent scorelines highlight the fact that not much more can be done by the Fortaleza rearguard. Fortaleza have been stingy, seeing the tally of goals that have gone in at their end during their last six clashes standing at 3.
Following on from a loss in their previous game against Atlético Mineiro in Serie A action, Sport Recife and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
In that game, Sport Recife managed 48% possession and 8 shots on goal with 1 of them on target. On the other side, Atlético Mineiro got 10 attempts on goal with 1 of them on target. Hulk (14') was the scorer for Atlético Mineiro.
The stats tell the story, and Sport Recife have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing opposing sides hit 11 goals overall. At the back, Leão da Ilha have not been doing too well. That sort of pattern won’t necessarily be carried forward into this game, though.
Coming into this meeting, Sport Recife haven’t won away from home in the past 2 league games.
Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals
