With a place in the final only two games away, there is likely to be tension and that may hinder a few of the creative players hitting their straps. Backing Under 2.5 Goals with Crownbet is the way to go at odds of 1.49.
Why Should I Bet on Sweden vs England
When Yerry Mina rose highest in the 93rd minute to equalize against England and send the game to extra time, every person supporting Gareth Southgate’s men knew how it would end. Penalties would be the unavoidable outcome and after years of misery in shoot-outs, the inevitable would happen and plunge a nation into depression.
Jordan Henderson’s missed penalty was all the evidence England fans needed to confirm that the worst was about to happen but in a remarkable and spine-tingling turn of events, the Three Lions would roar in the face of adversity and turn it around to win. Southgate’s charges now face Sweden in what looks like a winnable game on paper.
The belief in the England camp is growing and in reality, they have the far better side. Ladbrokes has England at 1.85 to beat Sweden and progress to their first World Cup semifinal in 28 years.
Sweden vs England Preview
Sweden have put together a well structured and impressive campaign and fully deserve to be in the quarterfinals of the World Cup. Their round of 16 victory over Switzerland wasn’t a classic but the Swedes won’t care one bit as they now take on England who they have a fantastic history against.
Sweden do have an astonishing record against England but few would argue against this being England’s time after breaking a massive World Cup hoodoo against Colombia. England’s young and talented side should be all too much for Sweden to deal with.
Sweden vs England Score Prediction
One thing the first round of knockout games is teaching us is that these encounters, for the most part, are cagey affairs that can be overcome by tension and nerves. That was at least how England and Sweden got on in their respective games and that theme is likely to continue. England to win 2-0 is priced at 8.00 by Bet365 and that looks a very likely outcome.
Both Teams To Score Prediction
Despite the fact that Sweden have managed to score in all of their games so far at the World Cup, backing no in both teams to score with Betstar is the smart move at 1.62. Sweden looked short on creativity and spark against Switzerland and the English defence should keep them out.
- Jordan Pickford was the first England keeper to save a penalty in a shoot-out at a major tournament since David Seaman at France ‘98 against Argentina
- Harry Kane is the first player to score in six consecutive appearances for England since Tommy Lawton in 1939
- Harry Kane to score two or more is 5.50 with William Hill
- Sweden have won back-to-back World Cup matches for the first time since 1958
- England have only won one of their last eight meetings with Sweden
