Sweden will be hoping for another comfortable three-point haul as they meet Liechtenstein in UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying Group G, having taken six points from the sides' only previous meetings.
• The teams first met in UEFA EURO 2008 qualifying. In Gothenburg on 6 September 2006, Marcus Allbäck (1 and 70) scored the first of his two goals in the opening minute, though Sweden struggled to strike back after Mario Frick (27) equalised for Martin Andermatt's visitors. Markus Rosenberg made it 3-1 on 88 minutes, Lars Lagerbäck's side having been without Zlatan Ibrahimović, Olof Mellberg or Christian Wilhelmsson – all of whom had been sent home for a breach of discipline.
• It was more plain sailing in the return leg on 13 October 2007 – just under seven years to the day before their latest encounter. Fredrik Ljungberg (19), Wilhelmsson (57) and Anders Svensson (56) were all on target in a 3-0 win against Hans-Peter Zaugg's side.
• The nations' only meetings in UEFA age-group competitions ended in a 4-0 win for Sweden at Under-19 level in 2005 and a 1-1 U17 draw in 2007 – the only UEFA game in which a Liechtensteiner side has ever denied a Swedish counterpart victory.
• The only meeting between Swedish and Liechtensteiner sides in UEFA club competitions came in the qualifying round of the 1998/99 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, where Helsingborgs IF beat FC Vaduz 2-0 away and 3-0 at home.
