Group B has without a doubt been the most entertaining group in the European qualifiers, and Tuesday’s deal between Sweden and Greece can determine how the table will shape in the end.
Sweden will be the favorites to earn three valuable points at home, but Greece are more than capable of pulling up an upset, as they showed in the last match the two sides played.
