Greece's starting lineup is guaranteed to be (4-3-3):

----------------Nikopolidis
--Seitaridis--Dellas/Antzas--Kyrgiakos--Torosidis
--------Basinas--------Katsouranis
---------------Karagounis
--Charisteas--------------Amanatidis
----------------Gekas

*The only chance for some change is Antzas starting over Dellas. Also Lymberopoulos and Samaras will both be comming on off the bench.

I think Sweden will either draw or win. I think Greece will control possesion, as Sweden's centre midfield is weak apart from Kim Källström. Sweden's danger will come from counter attacks. I hope Ljungberg - Zlatan - H Larsson partnership will be as succesful as in Euro's 2004. Defence and counter attacks will be key to this game for Sweden.

probable lineup for Sweden:

______Ibrahimovic H.Larsson
__________Källström
Ljungberg __________Wilhelmsson*
__________Svensson
Nilsson Mellberg Hansson Alexandersson**
___________Isaksson

* Sebastian Larsson sub to Wilhelmsson
** Stoor sub to Alexandersson(though he might start)

Score: 0-0 or 1-0 win for Sweden

This may very well be Sweden's starting line-up for the game against Greece:

Isaksson

Alexandersson - Mellberg - Hansson - Nilsson

Svensson - Källström

Wilhelmsson ----------- Sebastian Larsson

Zlatan - Henke Larsson

I sure hope not. But knowing Lagerbäck, I think he is too much of a coward not to


Edit: Seriously he would play Ljungberg on crutches before young talent

I don't see Sweden winning this without a proper DM on the pitch. Sweden might look flashy up front with Zlatan, Larsson/Elmander and Kallstrom, but the back is pretty weak.

R.I.P. Tazz, good times in Bim we had.

I agree, I think we can hope for a draw at best against Greece. Sweden is worse than in euro 2004.

The Swedes are mentally tough and always seem to find a way to get past the group stage. Oh well, my gut tells me that Greece takes second in the group. But this one might be a draw.

Watching Aftonbladet TV just now, It sounds like Lagerbäck intend to introduce a new formation(with Larsson as support striker) for the Greece game. It might seem desperate and stupid to change now. Personally I'm delighted to hear he sees there are problems with the current formation. Anyway, here is a probable 11 with the new 4-4-1-1 formation

____________Ibrahimovic
____________Larsson
____________
Ljungberg Svensson Källström Wilhelmsson
________
Nilsson Mellberg Hansson Alexandersson
____________Isaksson

Sweden are likely to have more ball possesion with this formation than the former one. It will also make good use of a intelligent player like Larsson, he can provide good passes to the feet of Zlatan, not the usual hoof shit. Also midfield can feel more reassured they have options to pass to when under pressure

I'll be surprised if this happens but it actually doesn't look that bad.

Either team that loses will be in a difficult position. However, Greece has the best schedule compared to Sweden and Russia in that Greece will play Spain last.

Referee for the match is Massimo Busacca from Switzerland

That's pretty much against every post you've ever made concerning Greece Dimitry.

Swedes, I love you because of the Red Wing contingent but I think Greece can get 3pts on Tuesday.

Ditto. That's definitely against every post Dmitry ever made concerning Greece.
