Sweden vs Faroe Islands Prediction
Sweden have been alternating between wins and draws in their past four games, the last of which witnessed them hold Spain to a 1-1 draw at home. At the moment, the hosts are unbeaten in their previous four home games too and have garnered eight points from a possible twelve as well.
Jane Andersson’s men have also been faring well in their previous meetings with this foe and have so far secured the bragging rights in each of those matchups. On the other hand, Faroe Islands, picked up the first win of their campaign in their respective fixture, albeit against fellow struggling side Malta. That too, at home by no more than a narrow 1-0 scorecard.
It is also worth mentioning that the visitors have lost every one of their outings so far, the last two by a three-goal margin or more. To pile on even misery, Faroe Islands are sporting the worst defensive record in the cluster. They have conceded twenty-three goals, which is five more than any other team.
Meanwhile, Sweden have already proved their mettle against the top half of the table. With Faroe Islands reduced to being no more than a punching bag in Group F, count on Sweden to come out on top with ease in this one.
Furthermore, at home, the hosts have been a menace in the final third and have scored seven goals from their last four games alone. As previously mentioned, the visitors have just not been able to keep their opponents at bay, especially on the road.
With the Swedish outfit slotting four unanswered goals in the reverse fixture, expect the hosts to rout this foe by the end of the ninety minutes.
