After beating Luxembourg 8-0 this weekend, the Swedish national football team is hoping to cinch their trip to Russia for the World Cup when they play the Netherlands tonight, in Amsterdam.

Kick-off is scheduled for 8:45 pm, and Sweden needs to win - and France must drop points in their match against Belarus - in order to go through automatically to Russia next June.

What are Sweden's chances, and how crowded are Swedish pubs likely to be tonight with folks eager to cheer on their team?
