Sweden v Montenegro background

Denied victory by a late penalty in the sides' first UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying Group G meeting, Sweden will look to make amends as Montenegro come to Stockholm.

Sweden will look to tighten their grip on a top-two place in UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying Group G as they welcome Montenegro.

Previous meetings
• The sides met for the first time in a competitive fixture on 15 November, Stevan Jovetić's penalty cancelling out Zlatan Ibrahimović's early strike in Podgorica to earn Montenegro a 1-1 Group G draw.

Montenegro previously met Sweden in their fourth game after being admitted to UEFA, losing 2-1 at home on 12 September 2007.

• Nikola Drinčić and Milorad Peković made their debuts for Zoran Filipović's side, and Mirko Vučinić (16) headed Montenegro in front, only for Markus Rosenberg (70) and Rade Prica (74) to strike back and earn a win for Lars Lagerbäck's Sweden.

Form guide
Sweden remain unbeaten in Group G (W2 D3).

Montenegro are without a win since their opening Group G fixture, a 2-0 success against Moldova. Their most recent match, at home against Russia, was abandoned due to crowd trouble, and declared forfeit. As a consequence, Montenegro were deemed to have lost the game 3-0.

Montenegro have not won in four competitive away contests (D2 L2) since a 1-0 victory in Moldova during 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying.

Trivia and links
Montenegro's Dejan Damjanović has already hit the woodwork three times in UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying – more than any other player at the halfway stage.

• The nations have met in three UEFA age-group competitions, with Sweden's record in those matches reading: W0 D1 L2. Montenegro failed to score in any of those fixtures.
