1 x 2 Predictions
Sweden topped Group F and barring a late collapse against Germany, they’ve looked tough to beat at the tournament. They knocked Italy out of the play-offs and they have now kept four clean sheets in their last five competitive fixtures. They will face a Swiss side who finished behind Brazil in Group E but suffered a late collapse against Costa Rica. Yann Sommer’s own goal left Switzerland with five points from a possible nine but they will need to defensively toughen up ahead of this clash. It’s incredibly difficult to write off Sweden in their current form and they could sneak this. Sweden are priced at 3.00 with Betway.
Sweden vs Switzerland Preview
Sweden haven’t enjoyed much success in this tournament in recent years but they will fancy their chances of progressing to the quarter-finals in Russia. They’ve been excellent so far and despite having very few stars in their line-up, they are tough to break down and they carry a threat in the final third. Andreas Granqvist has netted two of their five goals with the defender keeping his cool from the penalty spot. He is 8.00 with 888sport to net anytime during the 90 minutes. Janne Andersson lives and breathes every moment of his side’s performance and he will be barking instructions from the sidelines once again. Can the tactician mastermind another victory at the 2018 World Cup?
Switzerland were always likely to miss out on top spot having been drawn alongside Brazil in Group E. Vladimir Petkovic’s side were extremely competitive and remain unbeaten in the competition so far. They are usually reliable at the back but they’ve conceded four times so far and are still hunting for their first clean sheet of the competition. They’ve scored a few goals along the way and have seen five different players find the back of the net. Have they got enough spark to find a way past Sweden’s solid defence?
The online bookmakers aren’t expecting a high-scoring affair but it could be worth taking a chance on an entertaining 90 minutes. There is plenty at stake and Switzerland aren’t defending effectively at the moment. Sweden’s defence wasn’t really tested against South Korea and Mexico did have their chances in their 3-0 defeat. Over 2.5 Goals offers terrific value and can be backed at 2.78 with Sports Interaction.
Both Teams to Score Prediction
Once again, there is value to be found in backing goals in this contest. They aren’t expecting an entertaining match and although the first 30 minutes could be extremely cagey, it should open up in the second half. Both teams found the net when these sides last met and it would have landed in three of their last five meetings. It’s 2.18 with Sports Interaction for both teams to score in this game.
Switzerland have been priced up as the narrow favourites for this clash and can be backed at 2.63 with Intertops. Sweden will fancy their chances of progressing and they can be backed at 2.97. It’s 2.92 to finish all square and that is likely to be popular in the betting.
