Head to Head –

These two teams met 18 times prior to this match. Among all these matches France has won 8 of them while Sweden managed to get 5 wins. The other 5 matches ended in draw.

The last match between these two teams ended as Sweden winning by 2-0 in 2012.

 

Preview –

Sweden team which is technically unbeaten in last 4 matches lost only 1 of their last 5 matches. They won against Estonia and Liechtenstein. In the mean time they earned 2 draws against Austria and Russia. None of these teams can even be compared to France but its clear that Sweden is in good form. More importantly they are coming to this match after a win and that will boost their confidence level to a new level. They scored 6 times in their last 4 matches while conceding only 2. so we can say that both their offense and defense are doing good and if everything goes right then they might even get a win but still they are the underdogs for this match.

France team is in very good form. Their only loss in their last 5 matches came from Germany in the world cup. The margin of 1-0 says that the match was close and it is true that the match was much closer than it appears. They drew against Serbia but they managed to win all other 3 matches relatively easily. The good news for them is that they are coming to this match after thrashing poor Almeria by 0-3. Most of best players like Pogba, Benzama and others will not be playing in this match and so it will be a bit harder. But the in-form France can manage that with ease. This will be the match to take revenge for their last loss and so I can say that they are the favorites to win this game.

 

Prediction –

France VS Sweden match might end as 3-2, with France emerging victorious.
