Sweden vs. Spain Predictions and Preview
One of the highlights of Tuesday night’s action in the European Championships qualifiers sees Spain face a testing trip to Sweden.
La Roja are on the brink of qualification for next summer’s championships and a win here would ensure they go through the group automatically.
Sweden are also well placed to go through as they sit in second spot with 14 points from their seven qualifiers to date, but are just one point ahead of Romania in third place.
The visitors are favourites for this encounter at odds of 17/20 with a Sweden victory priced at 17/5 and the draw available at 12/5.
Between them, these two sides have conceded just three goals in their last six matches so under 2.5 goals at 5/6 appears to be a solid bet with under 1.5 at 5/2.
A ‘double chance’ on Sweden to come away with either a draw or a win is available at 19/20 while a Spain win/draw outcome is at 2/11.
If you fancy the away side to be leading at both half-time and at the final whistle, such odds are available at 9/5.
One to watch for Sweden: Alexander Isak has already netted twice in this qualification form and will be extra keen to score against Spain, the nation where he now plays his club football with Real Sociedad. His price to score anytime here is 3/1.
One to watch for Spain: Real Sociedad striker Mikel Oyarzabal is in fine form this season – netting five goals domestically while he scored on his Spain debut earlier this season against the same opponents and is 23/10 to score here.
Long shot: Sweden have kept three clean sheets from their last five matches while Spain have conceded only four goals from seven qualification matches to date. A scoreless draw is at 9/1.
