Sweden have had a successful season so far as they won their UEFA Nations League group securing promotion to League 1. They finished ahead of Russia and Turkey in their group and now turn their attention to Euro 2020. Their group sees them taking on Spain,Norway, Faroe Islands, Malta and Romania who they host in this opening fixture.Sweden played two friendlies in January losing at home to Finland and drawing 2-2 with Iceland with their opponents equalizing in the 91st minute. Despite their Nations League success, only one of their last five home games have ended in victory. Only one of their last 17 home Euro qualifiers have been lost with no losses in their last six home World Cup qualifiers. Romania finished second to Serbia in their League C Nations League group. They qualified for the last Euro Championships but missed out on last year's World Cup finals in Russia. They didn't lose any of their group games but three draws cost them dearly but this is a side that hasn't lost a game since late 2017 and are unbeaten in their last ten matches. Three of their last five away matches have been won and the tip here is a double chance bet on Romania to win or draw this qualifying match.
Brazil have picked six straight wins since falling to Belgium in the World Cup quarters and among the teams they have faced are formidable opponents, including Argentina, Uruguay, Cameroon and United States. Crucially, they have not conceded a goal in any of these matches and taking on a Panama side winless in the last 11 matches places Brazil as outright favorites. Brazil have also picked 10 straight wins in friendly matches and have not lost in 13 friendlies. In their last 18 friendly matches, they have conceded in just three and lost one then drew one; all the rest ended in wins. They have not let in a goal in the last 11 friendly matches. On the other hand, Panama have conceded in each of their last 10 matches and have managed just four wins in 20 matches. They are winless in eight friendly matches and have six losses in that run. This will be the third time the two nations face off; Brazil have picked wins in both earlier meetings.
