Sweden vs Portugal Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions
Fernando Santos' side were rampanton Saturday in overcoming Croatia 4-1 without captain Cristiano Ronaldo, with Diogo Jota and Joao Felix amongst the scorers.
Swedennarrowly lost out to France in their Group Three opener with Janne Andersson's side going down 1-0 against the world champions, who had just a single shot on target all game.
The loss to France at the weekend was Sweden's first competitive defeat on home soil in nine matches and the hosts are offered at 7/2 (4.50)with bet365 to record a win against the European champions.
Ronaldo missed the victory over Sweden with an infection in his foot and it remains to be seen whether he will have fully recovered in time to feature.
The hosts should be boosted by the return of Real Sociedad striker Alexander Isak who missed the France game with an injury.
Swedish coach Andersson was criticised on social media by Zlatan Ibrahimovic for failing to start new Juventus signing Dejan Kulusevski and the 20-year-old could come into midfield on Tuesday evening.
The Euro 2016 winners were in blistering attackingform on Saturday and could have scored double the amount of goals they notchedagainst the runners-up at the last World Cup.
Portugal have a wealth of attacking and creative riches and that was on display in Porto with Joao Felix, Joao Cancelo, Diogo Jota and Andre Silva all getting on the scoresheet.
The likes of Bernardo Silva and Bruno Fernandes also add to the side's potency in the final third and if Ronaldo returns they will be even more dangerous.
Sweden have a strong recent defensive record but their last few clean sheets have come against the likes of Kosovo and the Faroe Islands, and in Euro 2020 qualifying they conceded three goals against both Spain and Norway.
The visitors are offered at 10/11 (1.91) to score over 1.5 goals and this looks like a tempting option, one which has paid out in six of their last seven games.
Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
