Both teams put in solid displays against giants in the group phase and will certainly have a go at each other with a quarter final berth at stake

Sweden and Switzerland take on each other at the Saint Petersburg Stadium in the round of 16 of the mundial on Tuesday afternoon.

The Blue-Yellows might have suffered heartache of surrendering a 1-0 lead to Germany in the group phase however, Die Mannschaft fell 2-0 to South Korea in the final round and Sweden were able to thump Mexico 3-0.

In the end, the Scandinavians topped Group F and will fancy their chances of making it into the quarter finals with victory quoted at odds of (3.00) with NairaBet.

Group E was never going to be easy for Vladimir Petkovic’s side but they showed a lot of determination, earning draws with five-time world champions Brazil as well as Costa Rica and bagging victory against Serbia to finish second.

Having reached the round of 16 in the last edition in Brazil four years ago, the Europeans will be looking to make it into the last eight for the first time since 1954 at odds of (2.60).

Should the game end in a stalemate at the end of 90 minutes, the same betting firm is offering odds of (2.85).

This would mean the possibility of extra-time and potentially a penalty-shootout which was the case during Sunday’s action between hosts Russia and Spain and also the game between Croatia and Denmark.

Seeing that pan out for the third consecutive round of 16 tie in the tournament is priced at (2.70) and (4.90) respectively.

All of Sweden and Switzerland’s games during the group phase produced nothing less than three goals and putting into context how defensively solid both sides are, a repeat outcome is available at (1.14).

All round of 16 games have so far seen both sides score and it’s (2.25) with NairaBet to see that surface in Saint Petersburg.
