UEFA 2014 World Cup qualifying: Three matches on tap Tuesday

Martin Rose

All eyes are on Scandinavia on Tuesday, with Sweden and Denmark both in need of victories.

Belarus vs. Finland

1 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. local

In a group with Spain and France, no one else stands a chance. However, Finland will be making the trip to Belarus on Tuesday looking to extend their three match unbeaten run in the qualifiers, and close France's advantage in second place to just a couple of points. Belarus have picked up just three points from their five games so far, and are rock bottom of the group.

Sweden vs. Faroe Islands

1:15 p.m. ET, 7:15 p.m. local

This game should be a routine victory for Sweden, who are in pretty desperate need of the points. In their last qualifier they were defeated 2-1 against Austria, and haven't won in their last three qualification matches. Three points are required here for them to move level on points with Austria and the Republic of Ireland in joint-second place, and they've got no excuses for not winning -- the Faroe Islands haven't won a game in over two years.

Denmark vs. Armenia

2:15 p.m. ET, 8:15 p.m. local

Denmark could do with a win, too, with their hopes of qualification taking a hit after only winning once in their opening five matches. A victory here -- against an Armenia side that have lost their last four qualification games -- would lift them to within a point of Bulgaria in second place.
