Sweden have a chance to take over from Spain at the top of Group B in the World Cup qualifiers on Tuesday night.

If they were to collect three points at home against Greece then they would move into a commanding position.

But the only defeat that they have suffered in their last six happened against Greece when they paid a visit.

The visitors need a win to keep their hopes of a top-two finish alive.

Sweden Preview – Swedes to make the most of home advantage?

Can Sweden take their chance in this fixture? Victory would send them top of Group B by two points over Spain.

With just the one automatic qualification spot up for grabs, that’s going to be huge.

Sweden are carrying the home form to suggest that they can get this done.

In the match outright for football betting, the home win is at a quote of 5/6* (odds recorded 18:34 GMT October 11th 2021).

Sweden have won all three home matches during this World Cup Qualification campaign.

That includes a 2-1 success over Spain which sets them up brilliantly for this chance to potentially win the group.

Sweden have suffered only one defeat in their last thirteen matches (competitive and friendly over 90 minutes).

That one defeat was a 2-1 loss at Greece last month in these qualifiers.

But the overall form that Sweden have suggested turns the tables on this opponent.

Our betting prediction:
Sweden to win by a 1 goal margin

Bet at Betfair

* (odds recorded 18:34 GMT October 11th 2021)


Over 2.5 goals have happened in each of Sweden’s last four matches in the World Cup qualifiers.

There is a quote of 11/8 on this one going the same way, which may just be worth chancing* (odds recorded 18:34 GMT October 11th 2021).

Two of Sweden’s three at home in the group have gone that way, and so did their game in Greece.

In the head to head, Sweden have won of their last four against Greece (D1 L2).

But they look lively at the moment and have scored at least two goals in four of their last six.


Greece Preview – Can Greece keep hopes alive?

A loss on this visit to Solna on Tuesday night is likely to scupper any chance that Greece have of making the top two in Group B.

They kick off in third place, three points behind Sweden.

So there is an uphill task ahead of them, but a victory for the Greeks would keep this group wide open.

In the match outright, Greece are 7/2 to take the win* (odds recorded 18:34 GMT October 11th 2021).

They haven’t been in bad form at all.

The notable thing about them at the moment is that they have been hard to defeat.

Greece are currently unbeaten in their last ten international matches across the Nations League, World Cup qualifiers and friendly fixtures.

So it’s been a good return from them.

In this qualification group, they have returned a record of W2 D3 so remain undefeated.

That includes a great point in the opening round of action earned away in Spain.

Greece have drawn with Spain and Kosovo away from home, while they have beaten Georgia.

Their defence and organisation is the key thing about their chances.

Five of their last six matches in World Cup action have gone under 2.5 goals.

But that’s six matches in this sphere without a loss for them.

Greece has to come out and try and do something here because they need a victory to stay in this race.
