Monday's international friendly predictions including Sweden vs. Albania

Sports Mole provides score predictions and previews for today's international friendlies, including Sweden vs. Albania.

Azerbaijan vs. Bulgaria (Monday, 4.00pm)

Azerbaijan welcome Bulgaria to the capital city of Baku in the next instalment of the brand-new FIFA Series on Monday.

Both nations beat non-UEFA minnows on Friday and will now battle to see who will come out on top from this four-team section.

We say: Azerbaijan 1-1 Bulgaria

Despite a narrow win against huge minnows on Friday, Azerbaijan were still dominant and will fancy their chances against out-of-form opponents here, especially after a respectable Euro qualifying campaign.

A first win in 18 months against Tanzania will hardly raise spirits too much for a nation stagnating and struggling greatly for form, and a draw here would likely be perceived as a very good result for Bulgaria.

Cyprus vs. Serbia (Monday, 5.00pm)

Serbia will continue their preparations for this summer's European Championship with a friendly against Cyprus in Larnaca on Monday evening.

The visitors, who will begin their Euro 2024 challenge against England on June 16, will enter the contest off the back of a 4-0 defeat to Russia, while Cyprus played out a 1-1 draw with Latvia last time out.

We say: Cyprus 0-2 Serbia

Serbia should be fired up due to their poor performance against Russia, and we are expecting the talented visitors to have too much for Cyprus on Monday evening, although it should be relatively close in terms of the scoreline.

Montenegro vs. N. Macedonia (Monday, 5.00pm)

Montenegro and North Macedonia continue their long list of friendlies before the UEFA Nations League with a showdown in Antalya on Monday.

Both nations were able to avoid defeat in their respective games earlier in the March international break and will be looking to build some momentum ahead of fixtures later in the year.

We say: Montenegro 1-1 North Macedonia

While North Macedonia have been inconsistent of late, their recent draw with England means that they deserve respect ahead of this contest. With that in mind, we are backing a low-scoring draw to play out, one which would be more warmly received by the visitors than the hosts.

Sweden vs. Albania (Monday, 6.00pm)

Having both succumbed to defeat in their first international fixtures of the month, Sweden and Albania both hope to redeem themselves in Monday's friendly at Friends Arena in Stockholm.

The Scandinavian hosts were pummelled 5-2 by Portugal on Thursday evening, one day before Chile hit their visitors for three without reply.

We say: Sweden 2-0 Albania

Not since a 2010 World Cup qualifying affair in 2009 - which Sweden prevailed in 4-1 - have the Blue and Yellow squared off with the Eagles, whose lack of attacking bite could hamper their bid for an immediate reply to their disappointing loss to Chile.

Sylvinho's side may have more to play for as they endeavour to build up a head of steam before the Euros, but with Sweden returning to Stockholm soil and also having an extra day to recover, we have faith in Tomasson to mastermind his first win in the manager's chair.

Bolivia vs. Andorra (Monday, 9.00pm)

On Monday, Bolivia will go head-to-head with European minnows Andorra in a friendly on at the 19 May 1956 Stadium in Algeria.

The South Americans have won just one of their previous 10 internationals, while the Tricolors are winless in 14 matches.

We say: Bolivia 3-1 Andorra

Bolivia currently sit 78 places higher than Andorra in the FIFA World Rankings, and while they may have won just one of their last 10 matches, we think they will prove too strong for their European opponents.

Comoros vs. Angola (Monday, 9.30pm)

Comoros and Angola will face off in an international friendly matchup at Stade de Marrakech on Monday evening.

The Coelacanths are unbeaten in four successive matches heading into this one, while the Palancas Negras are looking to avoid three defeats in a row.

We say: Comoros 1-1 Angola

Comoros' impressive form in the last four games is something to take note of and this will make their stock rise in the minds of their opponents. However, we think Angola have what it takes to stop them in this match.
