On Saturday, Sweden will face Israel in the penultimate qualifying match for the European Championships.

A match that WNBA star Amanda Zahui misses due to covid-19.

In addition, Sweden will have to do without Regan Magarity and Kalis Loyd, at the same time as Louice Halvarsson is a question mark.

Sweden has started the qualifiers with two straight victories and leads the group halfway with a maximum of four points.

Behind them is Montenegro, who tonight defeated Israel 73-66.

They thus stand at three points while Israel has two points.

After Saturday's match, there remains one European Championship qualifier for the Swedes, against Montenegro in February.

The group winner is directly qualified for the European Championships next year.

The top five group runners-up (a total of nine groups) will also play in the European Championships.

SVT broadcasts Saturday's match between Sweden-Israel with a broadcast start of 12.55 on SVT1 / Play.
