Europe. Round 2.
Stadium: Friends Arena (Stockholm).
Referee: Michael Oliver.
The injured players in the Czech national team is definitely a plus for Sweden which has great international experience and potential. The upcoming game will be held in the suburbs of Stockholm. It's not surprising that bookmakers consider the Tre Kronor the favorite.Get Your Sign-Up Bonus!
Until the seventh round of qualifyers Sweden looked like a real contender for Spain. Yet, after the defeat in Batumi Tre Kronor couldnt secure the first place in Group B. In the final round, they played with the Spaniards in Seville. A draw would be enough for la Furia Roja, but got a close victory of 1:0. The Swedes ended up in second place with 15 points and 12:6 goal difference after eight rounds of play. Four wins in four games including a 2:1 victory over Spain at home. Three home victories out of 4 were zero, i.e. with the Yellow and Blues' defense is fully in control.
The Czech team has a five-match undefeated streak. After the away defeat from Belgium 0:3, the Czechs tied 1:1 in a warm-up with Ukraine and 2:2 with Wales in the qualifier 2022. After that, they beat Belarus, Estonia and crashed Kuwait (7:0!). It's been more than four months since then. We aren't sure that the Czech Republic, which has huge squad problems, will play at the same level. However, the Czech team, just like the Swedes, has full international experience. They got to the quarterfinals at the last Euro, where they lost 1:2 to the Danes.
Expert Betting Tips
Once again, the Czechs are suffering from lack of players. Schick and Coufal will not participate in the match. The Swedes must take advantage of the situation. Moreover, the final tie against Poland is scheduled just a few days after the game. Either team does not want to play a 120-minute encounter in Solna.
We paid attention to the fact that both regularly play nil-nil, which suggests that the opponents have a good defense. It is unlikely that we are waiting for a very productive match, while, as before, we suppose that the Swedish team will beat the Czechs in regulation time.
