France vs Sweden
European World Cup Qualifier (Group A)
Date: Friday, 11th November 2016
Kick-off: 19:45 UK
Venue: Stade de France, Saint Denis, Paris.
First will play second in Group A in what should be a very interesting game in Paris. France or Sweden has the opportunity to take charge of the group as both are on 7 points. France last played at home when they brushed aside Bulgaria 4-1. Since losing in the final of Euro 2016 to Portugal they are unbeaten in their last 4 matches.
Sweden has been installed as the clear outsiders to get victory in France. But they are as yet unbeaten in their group. However their form isn’t the best where they have lost 2 games in their last four matches. They have won their last two matches but not against the stronger sides and this will be a huge test for them.
The two other Group A fixtures of matchday 4 will be played on Sunday, 13th November 2013.
France vs Sweden: Head to Head Stats
There is a rich history between the nations that goes back 80 years. From 19 games France has lost 5 of them but the most recent one came in 2012 where Sweden won 2-0. However, while playing at home, France have not lost to Sweden since 1952. Based on history there is a 70% chance to see fewer than 3 goals.
France vs Sweden: Prediction
France has a strong fit squad which will include quality players such as Antoine Griezmann, Oliver Giroud and Paul Pogba. We must remember that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has retired from international football and that will weaken Sweden.
The French football team has become a very solid outfit and they will try to put in a very professional performance, there should be only one clear winner here. But France are quite big odds on for the result so it is better to look at other markets.
