Sweden have a slender chance going into their crucial UEFA Euro Qualifier Playoff second leg game against Denmark at the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen on Tuesday night, but that will not deter the hosts from looking for the much-needed aggregate win at home.
Denmark are just a goal away from sealing a historic berth in the European Championships in France next year.
It will not be easy by any means for the hosts to contain star Sweden striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who scored in their first leg game last week. The late goal from Nicolai Jorgensen in the match, however, brought smiles back to the faces of Danish fans.
Denmark, who won the Euro last in 1992, came behind Portugal and Albania in the Euro qualifiers from Group I. Sweden have won their previous three competitive fixtures, and will be keen on giving a big fight on Tuesday as they look for their fifth-straight appearance in the European Championships.
The teams will be wearing black armbands in the game to condemn the terror attacks in Paris last week and a minute's silence will be observed at the start of the game.
Morten Olsen, coach, Denmark football team: "I expect us to win and qualify. It will be tough, but no one ever said it would be easy. However, we have home advantage and we have the chance to decide matters on our own turf. I expect a close match."
Erik Hamren, coach, Sweden football team: "I want to see my players show courage, the same courage we showed after the first five to ten minutes last time. We've got a good feeling in the squad after Saturday and beating Denmark for the first time in a long while."
Denmark: Pione Sisto and Leon Andreasen will not be available for the game due to injuries.
Sweden: Mikael Antonsson will not be a part of the game owing to a groin injury.
Possible starting XI
Denmark: Schmeichel; Jacobsen, Kjær, Agger, Durmisi; Eriksen, Kvist, Højbjerg, Krohn-Dehli; Jørgensen; Bendtner.
