However, the home team, currently six points behind their next opponents, will once again compete with victory in Athens.
Drawn in a group that saw them reunited with familiar enemies from Spain, Janne Andersson would have been realistic about her team’s ambitions to head Group B.
However, last week’s 2-1 win over the former world champions has put Sweden in a position where it could qualify for the 2022 World Cup before the reverse match in Seville.
Only Greece, Kosovo, and Georgia stand in their way to a considerable surprise, but Andersson will emphasize to his players that they should take one game at a time.
The Blues and Yellows have conceded just one goal in three qualifying matches, while a much-changed side edged Uzbekistan 2-1 on Sunday.
Sweden have won nine of the 11 games since early 2021, with their only setback being their overtime loss to Ukraine in the round of 16 at Euro 2020.
Opponent Greece have gotten off to a frustrating start to their World Cup qualifying campaign, unable to take advantage of their surprising draw in Spain on matchday one.
Since then, John van’t Schip has witnessed his team draw against Georgia and Kosovo, the last game on Sunday in which they conceded the equalizer at 92 minutes.
Even with games in hand in some of the nations above them, Greece will once again be in contention whether it can stop Sweden’s growing momentum.
Greece have recorded just two losses in 15 games since last September, both 2-1 setbacks against Austria and Switzerland respectively.
Greece possible starting lineup:
Vlachodimos; Androutsos, Mavropanos, Tzavellas, Giannoulis, Tsimikas; Bakasetas, Bouchalakis, Siopis; Douvikas, Pavlidis
Sweden possible starting lineup:
