Sweden vs France
UEFA Nations League
Date: Saturday, 5 September 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Friends Arena (Stockholm).
Sweden’s winning streak will be something for the host to take into the match before facing the reigning world champions in the UNL fixture. Their previous encounter was at home against Kosovo and the former side won with a 1-0 scoreline.
Meanwhile, France is on a seven-game unbeaten run in their schedule. If it was not for the draw with Turkey earlier in the run, they would have been in a winning streak in the same period. They will visit on the back of a two-game winning streak for now, following a 0-2 win on the road against Albania.
The teams had previously met in 2017 for the World Cup qualifiers, and Sweden came out victorious in the clash with a 2-1 scoreline. Didier Deschamps and his men will look to take revenge for that loss and with Mbappe back in the squad; the visitor will be close to taking all three points.
Sweden vs France Head-to-head (h2h)

- None of their recent five meetings have ended in a draw.
Sweden vs France Prediction
Sweden is in a winning streak for the past five fixtures in their schedule across all international competition. They haven’t even conceded in any of those victories while scoring 7 goals. So, we can expect a couple of goals with over 1.5 goals as a suitable option in the encounter.
Janne Andersson’s troops are tough to beat at home, but the world cup winners will be right up for the challenge with their strong squad strength. Besides, France will come in hot with a two-game winning streak which will give them a slight edge before the upcoming match. The away win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters.
