Sweden Prediction – Can Sweden extend unbeaten run?

It’s been a solid Euro 2020 qualifying campaign produced by Sweden as Monday night’s hosts sit in 2nd place behind the group favourites, Spain, but the Swedes have emerged as the ‘best of the rest’ by seeing off the challenges from Romania and Norway and losing just once throughout these group matches to date.

That one defeat came in the shape of a heavy 3-0 loss in Spain but otherwise, Janne Andersson’s side have been compact and hard to beat, and the hosts bring a useful looking 5-match unbeaten sequence into this clash against the Faroe Islands.

3 of these last 5 matches have also seen Sweden achieve clean sheets while the goals have flowed at the other end with Sweden picking up convincing wins on the road at Faroe Islands 4-0, Malta 4-0 and a 2-0 win away at Romania.

Euro qualifier results at home have also been very consistent as Sweden have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 21 matches which also includes 9 clean sheets, while also beating Faroe Islands 4-0 and 2-0 respectively in their last 2 meetings.

Faroe Islands Prediction – Can Faroe Islands avoid wooden spoon?

Another difficult tournament qualifying campaign for the Faroe Islands has seen them win just 1 of their 9 group matches to date which was a narrow 1-0 home win over fellow Group F strugglers, Malta, but otherwise there’s been very little to cheer about from their perspective.

It’s true that the margins of their defeats have decreased significantly in recent seasons, and indeed, they inflicted home and away wins over Greece a few seasons back, but these Euro 2020 qualifiers have still ended in disappointing outcomes.

Away from home though, Faroe Islands continue to struggle as they’ve now lost their last 7 Euro qualifiers on the trot on the road, failing to score in 4 of these 7 ties and they’ve picked up just 1 win out of their last 30 matches on their travels, so a victory in Sweden tonight looks extremely unlikely.

It therefore appears the best that Faroe Islands can hope for now is to avoid the wooden spoon in finishing bottom of Group F, as it looks like damage limitation for the visitors here.

 

Key-Facts – Sweden vs Faroe Islands

  • Sweden have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 21 Euro qualifiers at home
  • Faroe Islands have won just 1 of their last 30 Euro qualifiers away from home
  • Sweden have won the last 2 meetings against Faroe Islands 4-0 and 2-0

 

Betting Tips Verdict

Sweden are expected to register an easy win here and we’ll back them to also keep a clean sheet too.
