Sweden vs France - World Cup Qualification Europe Preview and Odds

June 09, 2017 19:45pm - Friends Arena

World Cup Qualification - Group A

Sweden began their qualifying campaign with a respectable 1-1 draw at home to Netherlands and have barely put a foot wrong since. They easily beat Luxembourg, Bulgaria and Belarus, while their only defeat came away to Group A favourites France who edged to a 2-1 win. They are unbeaten in their last four at home, having won three and drawn one, scoring 11 goals and conceding just one in the process.

But despite their good form, they still face a tight battle for Group A qualification with Bulgaria and Holland also in contention for the runners-up spot behind France.

Meanwhile, Didier Deschamps` men remain unbeaten in Group A and can virtually wrap up qualification with a win in this fixture. They warmed up for this game with a 5-0 win over Paraguay last Friday, a result that brought welcome relief after the recent draw against Ivory Coast and defeat to Spain.

Despite their dominance in the group, they did falter on the road in Belarus back in September when the teams played out a 0-0 draw. As a result, victory in Sweden might not be a foregone conclusion.

Betting odds and tips

The French have conceded in five of their last seven away games while Sweden have netted in each of their last seven World Cup qualifiers on home soil. For that reason, the Both Teams to Score bet looks decent value.

Janne Andersson`s men will be out to cause a shock here but they do not have a great record against the top sides on home soil, with the recent draw against Netherlands the best they can boost in the last decade.

You can back Both Teams to Score at 21/20 with Bet365.
