Sparks will fly as Sweden and Chile draw swords at the Unipol Arena in Bologna. As both teams go toe-to-toe with each other on Tuesday, it’ll be interesting to see who will reign supreme when it’s all said and done.
Our favourite Sweden vs Chile match predictions
As these teams look to kick off their respective Davis Cup campaigns with a win, these are our predictions and tips for this match
Sweden to win 2-1
To be fair, Chile are the overwhelming favourites to win this match-up. However, it’s important to point out that they met Sweden in the qualifying rounds of the Davis Cup three years ago, and it was the Swedes who came out on top. Interestingly, players like Mikael Ymer, Elias Ymer, Alejandro Tabilo and Marcelo Tomas Barrios Vera all played in that clash, and they’ll also represent their respective countries today.
It may interest you to know that while Sweden fell short in the group stages last year, Chile will be playing in the group stage for the first time since 2019. Although the Swedes are the underdogs, we believe they’ll hold their own against Chile. On that note, we’re predicting a 2-1 victory for Sweden.

Can Chile avenge their 2020 loss to Sweden?
Now that we’ve sorted out our Sweden vs Chile prediction, let’s see how these teams performed in the previous edition of the Davis Cup.
It’s important to point out that only four countries have been more successful than Sweden in the history of the Davis Cup. The Swedes have won seven Davis Cup titles since 1975. However, it’s important to point out that the last time Sweden won the Davis Cup was in 1998; they finished third in Group A last year, with a win and two losses in three group matches. Sweden will play in Group A once more, and they’ll be eyeing one of the top two spots.
- Mikael Ymer
- Elias Ymer
