Sweden vs Switzerland Predictions
Sweden denied Italy a place at the 2018 World Cup and they continued their excellent form by taking six points from a possible nine in Russia. Janne Andersson’s side don’t have many star players but they are an efficient unit and have kept two clean sheets in their last three matches. Switzerland were drawn in a tough-looking Group E but they finished second behind Brazil and deservedly booked their place in the last 16. This match could be tight and it’s tough to predict. Sweden don’t tend to lose many games and they could narrowly edge this contest. Switzerland conceded twice to Costa Rica and that is a little concerning. Sweden are the outsiders in this market and can be backed at 19/10 with William Hill.
Sweden vs Switzerland Preview
Sweden have proved very effective at the tournament so far and they will be looking to make further progress in Russia. They topped the group and although they were narrowly beaten by Germany, they still managed to pick up six points from a possible nine. Janne Andersson’s side excellent against Mexico were and they deserved their 3-0 success. They have a number of hard-working players and although it’s been a poor World Cup for Emil Forsberg, they’ve created enough chances in those games to win by a greater margin.
Switzerland ended their Group E on a disappointing note by twice blowing a lead against a previously goalless Costa Rica side. They were excellent against Brazil and took advantage of a tiring Serbia in the second half. Vladimir Petkovic’s side have been entertaining to watch so far but their defence has uncharacteristically struggled to contain the opposition at this tournament and they are yet to keep a clean sheet.
Both Teams to Score Prediction
Switzerland are yet to keep a clean sheet and they’ve scored in each of their three matches at the World Cup. They’ve been the side to follow for BTTS backers and they should continue that run of form here. Sweden have kept two clean sheets in three games but they were susceptible at the back against Germany and Switzerland will ask plenty of questions. Both sides have players who are capable of finding the back of the net and each team will look to exploit set-pieces. Both Teams to Score? Yes is available at 23/18 with 888sport and should be backed in this contest.
