Sweden vs France: Preview & Prediction
Before going on vacation on June 14, the French team still had to play two matches, in Sweden as part of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers and against England in friendly.
These are two important matches for the Bleus of Didier Deschamps, because the Habs have not been irreproachable in recent months. If they had hardly beaten Sweden on November 11, 2016 (2-1), Blaise Matuidi’s partners have been hooked in friendly since this success, by Côte d’Ivoire (0-0) and Spain (0-1). -2).
Last week, the French team beat Paraguay, 5 goals to 0, so the Blues took the lead after their defeat in front of the Spaniards.
In qualifying for the 2018 World Cup, France currently has 3 points ahead of her opponent of the day. The Tricolores have a small lead after the victory of the first leg, 2 goals to 1 (Payet and Pogba).
France remain on a series of 4 successes in these qualifiers, with 10 goals scored, but with 3 goals conceded. The Blues have lacked solidity on the defensive plan in the image of the goal conceded before the Luxembourg. The Blues won 3-1, but they scared up to the 75th minute.
Fortunately, compared to this match in front of Luxembourg, the French team will recover the recent European Champion with Real Madrid, Raphael Varane. This is an important return!
It will be important in Sweden, especially as the Nordiques have a game based on the physical challenge, even more since the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The Swedish giant is no longer there, so the technique is no longer one of the strong points of the offensive sector.
Sweden will try everything in front of the French team and it counts notably on its striker, Marcus Berg, author of 24 achievements with the Panathinaikos this season.
Sweden has perhaps found a certain collective, because it no longer plays for a single player! The Swedes remain on victories ahead of Slovakia (6-0), Belarus in these qualifiers (4-0) and against the European Champion 2016, Portugal (3-2).
In the playoffs, Sweden suffered a sluggish defeat in the Netherlands, with the Netherlands (1-1), a formation that the French team beat during the campaign and at the Amsterdam Arena (1-0 ). In other words, it is possible to bet on a French victory!
