Current table in the UEFA Nations League
Serbia claimed a highly respectable seven points so far in their UEFA Nations League group. This keeps them in the running for first place, and we’ll no doubt see a highly motivated home side on Saturday. Dropping points this coming Saturday probably isn’t an option for Sweden, if they wish to stay in the race for first place. They picked up three points, and losing this next home match would be fatal.
