Sweden vs Denmark Today’s Soccer Prediction
Sweden meet Denmark on Saturday at 18:45 at the Olympic Games in Stockholm in preparation for the 2018 World Cup. Sweden are present in Russia 2018 after having beaten Italy in the European Zone qualifying play-off (1-0, over the two hands). The Swedes are in Group B, along with Germany, Mexico and South Korea, and in addition to this match they will still face Peru before starting their participation in Russia. It should be noted that coach Jan Andersson will not be counting on Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who opted not to return to the national team, nor with injured Jakob Johansson, the scorer of the Sweden goal in the play-off against Italy. Denmark are part of Group C of the World Cup, along with France, Peru and Australia, and should fight Peru for the second place in the last 16. To reach the World Cup, the Danes also had to play the play-off, having beaten Ireland 5-1 in the combined aggregate result. Denmark have Christian Eriksen, the Tottenham midfielder who scored 11 goals in the qualifying round, his big point in a tight set and saved at the goal by Kasper Schmeichel, son of Peter Schmeichel. The Danes, who will be led by the Norwegian Age Hareirde, add up to four appearances in the final stages and only in 2010, in the last one, they stayed for the first phase, unlike in 1986, 1998 and 2002, when they reached the eighth. In the history of the last five clashes between the two teams, the balance could not be more evenly matched: two wins for each side and a draw. Who will get the best this Saturday?
Sweden vs Denmark
In four of Sweden’s last five games there were less than 2.5 goals.
In three of Denmark’s last five games there were less than 2.5 goals.
Sweden conceded just nine goals in ten European Group A games.
In three of the last five clashes between the two sides there were less than 2.5 goals.
In a duel between two Nordic formations, we anticipate a very tactical game, with Denmark taking on more of the costs of the game and a Sweden that is worth a lot for its collective organization, but mainly defensive. We believe in a game with less than 2.5 goals.
