World Cup 2018 Qualifiers
After some rather surprising results in the beginning of these qualifiers, group A is slowly returning to its natural order – with France leading the pack.
Although the French play the best football in the Group, Sweden is also right there is the top, with the same number of points and the same 5-1 goal difference. What will happen in the direct game between the two teams?

Current form leads us to a home win. After a 0-0 draw in Belarus, France beat Bulgaria 4-1 at home and Holland 1-0 away, showing great form and great football.
They are one of the powerhouses of modern football and a favorite to win the World Cup 2018, which means that getting points off them will be very hard.
Furthermore, some of their key players, like Griezmann, Pogba or Gameiro are in great form, so goals are a certainty for a home side.
Meanwhile, the Swedes did nothing wrong so far in this campaign. A credible draw in Holland and wins against Luxembourg and Bulgaria leaves them with 7 points, top of the Group.
They have a lead over the Dutch at the moment, so even a loss in France wouldn’t hinder their qualification chances by a lot.
Since Ibrahimovic left the team, they do have a harder time scoring goals, but they have shown that they are a disciplined, hard-working team so far. Maybe the French will have trouble opening them up and scoring goals.
France vs Sweden Betting Tips
We don’t think that will happen, to be honest. We think that France will win the game and should score at least 2 goals in the process. France over 1,5 goals, France to win and even France -1 are all great bets.
As always, we think that at least 2 players from the French attacking trio will score – Griezmann, Gameiro, Giroud, Payet or Martial – depending on who will play. Also, if Sweden is to score, they surely won’t score more than once.
