France vs Sweden Free Betting Tips – UEFA Nations League
Last day of the Nations League group stage starting this Tuesday, November 17! In group 3 of League A, the French team has already qualified for the semi-finals of the competition, and it turns out that it is the only nation in this case! Proof, if need be, of the performance of the Blues, in a strong group with Portugal, winner of the last Euro, Croatia, finalist of the last World Cup, and Sweden, who had reached 1/4 in 2018.
With 13 points out of 15 possible, Didier Deschamps’ men have the best balance sheet, all groups combined in Ligue A, and this final meeting against the Swedes will therefore have no consequences, at least for EDF. Because for Sweden, it is quite simply its maintenance in League A that will be at stake! Thanks to their success against Croatia in D5 (2-1), the Blues and Yellow came back to equal points with their direct competitor (3) but could not take the best in direct confrontations (2 -1 / 1-2). Conclusion, it is the goal difference, or even the number of goals scored, which will decide a possible tie. If the team at Les Damiers obtains a better result against Portugal than Sweden against France, Croatia will hold on, and the Scandinavian team will be relegated …
Key stats for the match France vs Sweden
Thanks to its success in Portugal (1-0), the French team got the better of their main opponent after the 2 direct confrontations (0-0 in the first leg). The Blues can no longer be joined at the head of the group, even in the event of defeat!
Conversely, Sweden plays its survival in this League A. In its duel at a distance with Croatia, the Scandinavian selection must do better than the Croatian selection. If the Croats win, the Swedes must win, if the Croats lose, the Swedes can afford to lose, but with a smaller gap, because it is the goal difference that will decide them!
During the first leg, the Blues won only 1 goal to 0 in Sweden, on the lawn of the Friends Arena in Solna.
Didier Deschamps will certainly carry out a slight staff review, and players like Olivier Giroud, Corentin Tolisso, Clément Lenglet or Marcus Thuram should take the opportunity to regain playing time and make people forget this defeat against Finland in a friendly.
France has not beaten Sweden by at least 2 goals difference since 1989, 12 matches in a row (6 French wins, 4 draws, 2 Swedish wins).
France vs Sweden Free Betting Tips
If the France team will remain favourites at home against a nation that will play for its survival in Ligue A while the Blues play for the win, we must not forget the stake of this final day: maintenance. Motivation could have a major impact during this D6, especially as Portugal, travelling to Croatia, has nothing more to play. The Croats can therefore take at least 1 point, and the Swedes will know it when they enter the pitch. Our prediction includes success for the Blues by 1 goal difference, a draw or a Swedish victory!
