Janne Andersson’s men will be looking to get the better of the Asian Tigers in order to bolster their chances of a place in the knock-out stages

Sweden open their 2018 campaign with South Korea on Monday afternoon at the Stadion Nizhny Novgorod.

Janne Andersson’s men will be making a return to the global tournament after missing out in the last two editions and will be looking to kick-start on an impressive note.

Although their build-up to the tournament leaves little to cheer about, claiming victory only once in the six friendly games played. However, they are slight favourites with Bet365 to nick the three points in this tie at the price of (2.05).

Considering that their last two meetings ended in stalemate, punters can profit from backing a repeat in this contest at (3.25) with the same betting outfit.

Shin Tae-yong’s charges will be heading into this tie on the back of a 2-0 loss to Senegal and will be hoping to return to winning ways here but will have it all to do having been tagged as underdogs at the odds of (4.33).

The Blagult have never lost to the Asian Tigers and will be looking to continue that way in this outing backed at (1.22) with the bookies.

Both sides were on the scoresheet in their previous two meetings and (2.10) is on offer for them to find the net here again in this game.

Although, their last three meetings – all friendlies - produced eight goals, nevertheless only two or fewer goals will likely surface in this match at (1.50) according to Bet365.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
