Sweden play host to France in Stockholm on Friday in what is a crunch match at the top of theirWorld Cup qualifying group. France head in as the pacesetters, but they’re just three points clear of Sweden after five matches. Should they lose, these sides would be tied at the top.
Though France haven’t lost a competitive match since they were beaten on home turf in the final of last summer’s European Championships, they’ve got reason to fear a Sweden side that have adapted well to life without the retired Zlatan Ibrahimović. They’ve won four of their last five matches, and only France themselves have beaten them in qualifying so far.
France will be without left-back Layvin Kurzawa, who underwent groin surgery in May. However, Benjamin Mendy and Lucas Digne are both more than capable of deputising for the PSG defender, and coach Didier Deschamps should be able to field something close to a full-strength team. Sweden are not believed to have any injury concerns whatsoever.
Legendary striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic didn’t get the international swansong he was hoping for last summer as Sweden were eliminated from Euro 2016 in the group stages, but the Swedes have bounced back surprisingly well considering their talisman has retired.
Since that 1-0 loss to Belgium in the final group game they have won six, drawn one, and lost two of their nine matches. One of these defeats came away to France in these qualifiers, but a 2-1 loss in Paris is nothing to be ashamed of.
This has put Sweden in a fantastic position to challenge for qualification. They are 2nd in their World Cup qualifying group, three points adrift of the only automatic qualification spot but ahead of both Bulgaria and Holland in the potential playoff spot of 2nd.
As you would expect, it’s France who hold the top spot at the moment. The visitors suffered the heartbreak of an extra-time final defeat to Portugal in their home European Championships, but they still possess one of the most promising teams in the world and will feel confident heading towards the World Cup.
They have won six, drawn two, and lost just one of their nine games since last summers’ exploits, beating the likes of Italy and Holland in the process. So far Spain are the only team to beat them.
Away from home France have won three of their four matches, with the only slip up being a shocking goalless draw away to Belarus. They have scored in eight of their last 11 away matches as well, so the Swedish defence could be in for a tough time as they come face to face with Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe, Olivier Giroud, and Dimitri Payet.
Sweden have scored in an impressive 13 of their last 14 home matches though, so I expect them to find a goal too. This makes odds of 21/20 for Both Teams to Score look attractive, and I’m backing that along with a 2-1 win for France at 15/2 for our correct score predictions.
