Sweden-Belgium, the likely lineups.

On the first day of qualifying for the upcoming European Championships, Sweden and Belgium will face each other in Group F. Kickoff at 8:45 p.m. at the Friends Arena. Both teams are looking for redemption respectively after relegation to the Nations League C division on the part of the hosts and the premature elimination from the World Cup on the part of the guests.

Andersson is expected to field Ibrahimovic from the 1′ with Kulusevski completing the offensive tandem. In defense in front of Olsen there will be room for Lindelof and Hien with Augustinsson and Holm on the side lanes. Tedesco, meanwhile, will start again with Lukaku with Trossard and Carrasco at the back. In the midfield will be De Bruyne and Onana with Saelemaekers and Meunier on the flanks.

Likely lineups.
