Sweden Preview – Can Sweden keep the French quiet?

Sweden enjoyed a successful campaign last time out in the Nations League as they finished top of Group 2 in League B ahead of Russia and Turkey to gain promotion up to League A for this upcoming campaign, but they face a tough opening group match against the World Champions, France.

Although the Swedes started slowly with a 3-2 loss at home to Turkey and a draw with Russia, they soon got into their stride and collected back-to-back wins against Turkey (1-0 away) and over Russia with a 2-0 home win.

The hosts then followed that up with a runners-up spot in Group F behind winners, Spain, to achieve automatic qualification for the 2021 European Championships which was helped by losing just one of their eight group matches and they head into this encounter having won their last three matches on the trot in all competitions with victories over Faroe Islands, Moldova and Kosovo.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

France Preview – Can France flex their muscles?

France were narrowly edged out by Netherlands in Group 1 of League A last time around in the Nations League which meant the Dutch went onto the knockout rounds, but fekll at the last hurdle in the final against Portugal.

Nevertheless, the French weren’t to be denied their own slice of glory as they stormed through the Euro qualifiers, finishing top of Group H by a two-point margin over runners-up, Turkey, to achieve automatic qualification for next year’s European Championships, winning eight of their 10 group matches along the way.

The French have also been pretty steady away from home too as they’ve lost just two of their previous 12 matches on their travels which were at Netherlands and Turkey, while the visitors have won three of the last five encounters against the Swedes.
