Competition: World Cup qualifiers
Market: Zlatan Ibrahimovic can score at any time
Prospect: 4/6 @ 888sport
After welcoming the return of its national symbol on Thursday evening, Sweden will seek to start its World Cup qualifying campaign when it hosts Georgia.
Starting with the host nation, which was last seen in November as it suffered a 4-2 defeat against champion France, Sweden has continued to show a flurry of problems just last year. After collecting just one win from their six Nations League competitions and dropping back to Group B, the Yellows are now back to a former icon to pin the ship. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is looking to lead Sweden to the 2022 World Cup Finals and is set to participate in this year’s European Championship, and will celebrate his return in the middle of the week. Just continuing to shock many and enjoy another true purple patch with Italian giants AC Milan, the 39-year-old was last seen heading into an international hiatus with a goal against Fiorentina earlier in the month. With 17 goals so far this season, the former Manchester United player should be confident to return to scoring on Thursday.
As for the visitors, while Georgia had a euphoric opening of the Nations League campaign last year, it appears that this was just a slight throwback from the Crusaders. He was last seen playing in a goalless draw with Estonia at home in November, with coach Willie Sagnol seeing his team failing to win any of the last five encounters across all formats. He also failed to secure his place in this year’s European Championship after losing 1-0 to North Macedonia in Tbilisi, and it is also worth noting that the Whites have only managed to win one of their last five matches on foreign soil. Faced with what must be an overwhelming test when they celebrate Ibrahimovic’s return on Thursday, it’s hard to see anything other than a long night of work in Georgia.
