Our tipster thinks that there is plenty of potentials for goals at both ends when these two teams meet in the Uefa Nations League on Saturday evening

Turkey can condemn Sweden to bottom spot in their Uefa Nations League group with victory when these two teams meet in Konya on Saturday evening.

Mircea Lucescu's men overturned a two-goal deficit to stun Sweden in Solna back in September, but two defeats at the hands of Russia in this competition mean that Turkey cannot top the group.

Sweden must win this one if they are to stand any chance of pipping Stanislav Cherchesov's side to top spot.

Latest odds

That victory in Solna was just one of two wins that Turkey have enjoyed in their last eight outings but, despite their stuttering form, Lucescu's men are 11/8 (2.38) favourites with 888Sport to win this one.

Janne Andersson's men have failed to win any of their five fixtures since reaching the last eight of the World Cup earlier this year, and 888Sport make the Swedes an 11/5 (3.20) shot to succeed on Saturday, while the same firm go 43/20 (3.15) that the match ends in stalemate.

Team news

Despite drawing a blank in his last four games for his country and failing to secure a starting spot at Everton in recent weeks, Cenk Tosun is expected to lead the line for the hosts in Konya.

John Guidetti started and scored in Sweden's 1-1 draw with Slovakia last month and the 26-year-old striker will be pushing for a start on the strength of that showing.

Defensive discipline key for hosts?

Turkey have kept a clean sheet in eight of their last 11 home victories and 888Sport go 11/4 (3.75) that Lucescu's side win to nil, while the hosts can be backed at 17/10 (2.70) with the same firm to shut out the Swedes.

Prediction

Both sides are struggling for form but there is potential for goals at both ends - as there was when these teams locked horns in Solna.

Turkey have scored in all but two of their last 11 at home, but have managed just one clean sheet in their last eight matches.

The 19/20 (1.95) quote, then, from 888Sport for both teams to score could offer value for punters ahead of Saturday's showdown.
