Sweden have got their world cup qualification bid off to a good start after five matches played and current occupy second place in the table on 10pts having secured three wins, one draw and one defeat and the hosts will be in confident mood come Sunday night having won their last qualification match back in March with ease having brushed aside Belarus 4-0.

France have also had a very good start to their qualification campaign after five matches played and currently occupy first position in the table on 13pts having secured four wins and one draw. The visitors will looking to emulate their 2-1 victory obtained against Sweden at the Stade de France back in November last year  and will head into this game just as confident as their hosts having managed a 3-1 victory away from home against Luxembourg in their last qualification match back in March.

Sweden Team News:

The hosts will name their strongest squad available for this one and having gone close against their visitors in the reverse fixture they will certainly fancy their chances with home advantage.

France Team News:

The visitors will also name their strongest squad for this game and will be fully aware that they face a difficult task at the Friends Arena on Friday night. Players like Pogba and Griezmann will all have to be at their very best to secure victory for their country in what looks a very tough game on paper.

Sweden v France Head to Head Statistics:

Friday night’s game from the Friends Arena will become the 21st meeting between the two nations over the years and as we can see from our head to head statistics table below which shows the previous five matches played between the two countries we see that France have a clear advantage having won 3, compared to Sweden who have managed to win just 1, with the remaining match having finished all square.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

47 Goals have been scored in the previous 20 meetings between the two nations and this provides us with an overall average goals per game statistic of 2.35.

25 of those Goals have been scored in the 10 previous matches played between the two nations at the Friends Arena and this generates us an average goals per game statistic of  exactly 2.50.

Based on both sets of data shown above, it would seem to suggest that this game should not see too many goals scored on Friday night and the betting market Total Match Goals Scored 2 or 3 looks a good choice here.

Sweden v France Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

An interesting match to look forward too and going by what the statistics are suggesting, this game could go either way on the night. Sweden can take a huge step towards securing their place at Russia with a victory and with home advantage and in great form recently, many people will no doubt be getting something on the hosts to cause a bit of a shock at their current odds of 5/1 with BetVictor !

France have a world class squad and a victory for them would secure their place at the finals in Russia next summer and with the likes of Griezmann and Pogba, the hosts are worthy favourites to win this game.

However, France do seem to under-estimate their opponents at times and with three of the previous five meetings between the two nations having seen both teams get on the score-sheet, this does look like being a very hard fought affair with hopefully at least a couple of goals gracing the net.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip will be for Both Teams to Score as with the average goals per game statistics expecting between two or three goals to be scored in this one, the final score should possibly end up in a 1-1 draw or a 2-1 victory either way on the night.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip will be for Antoinne Greizmann to Score the 1st Goal in this match as he has had a fantastic season on the domestic front and certainly has a keen eye for goal.
