Why Should I Bet on Sweden vs Switzerland?
If both of these two teams were honest before the tournament, reaching the quarterfinals of the World Cup would have been the best possible outcome they could have hoped for. Now it is a reality and, once in the last eight, anything can happen.
Both Sweden and Switzerland have put together extremely impressive group stage campaigns as qualification for the round of 16 was far from a sure thing before the World Cup kicked off. Sweden had to see off Germany and Switzerland keep a dangerous Serbian team out of the top two.
When they meet at the Saint Petersburg Stadium, no inch will be given and this will be a full-blooded affair. Switzerland have that extra bit of quality up front and a steeliness that runs through their side which makes them incredibly hard to beat. Switzerland should progress but not in normal time, and punters should back the Swiss to qualify at 1.87 with Betfair.
Sweden vs Switzerland Preview
FIFA have decided not to punish the Swiss trio of Xhaka, Shaqiri and Lichtsteiner for goal celebrations against Serbia and that has given Switzerland the edge in this encounter. Without those players, the Swiss would have looked an unrecognizable team with their spine gone.
Sweden have a lot to be positive about after many thought the last-minute defeat to Germany would have knocked all the wind out of them. Instead, they have picked themselves up and powered past Mexico to book a place in the round of 16. Sweden are more than capable of beating the Swiss and will give it everything they have from the first minute.
Sweden vs Switzerland Score Prediction
Both of these teams have seen goals at either end of the pitch during their group games. This will be tightly contested and a 1-1 scoreline after 90 minutes looks good value with Bet365 at 6.00.
Out of the six matches Sweden and Switzerland played in the group stages, four of them saw more than two goals scored but this round of 16 meeting will be a lot closer. Bodies will be put on the line and punters can back Under 2.5 Goals with Centrebet at 1.40.
