Sweden come into this game with a couple of serious injury doubts as Zlatan Ibrahimovich was taken off with an abductor problem at the weekend, if the captain missed the game it will be a devestating blow to the Swedes and against group leaders Austria it is something Sweden could have done without. Sweden will not look to the experienced Kallstrom and Larrson to provide the spark for the side as they really must get a win here to stay ahead of Russia in the race for automatic qualification.
A point tonight is enough to get Qualification for Austria with games to spare. Led by the brilliant Bayern Munich player Daniel Alaba, Stoke City's Arnautovich and Harnik this is a hard working side that have gotten to this position through grit and determination. Austria are just one point from a historic place in the Euro's and I think that given Sweden may be missing Ibrahimovich this is a game where teh away team is very appealing. Sweden have struggled to break teams down in these qualifiers and struggled again against Russia last time out.
I am going to take Austria +1 on the handicap, I think the draw is the most likely result but just incase Sweden sneak a win I'm taking Austria +1, at worst I think we push but I have a feeling that this one will be an outright winner and Austria may even sneak a win to guarantee themselves top spot.
