It’s a game the Swedes should win comfortably but can’t take their opponents likely based on past antecedents

Sweden lock horns with minnows Luxembourg at the Friends Arena in the penultimate game of the Group A World Cup qualifiers.

The Blue-Yellows enter this clash sitting just one point behind leaders, France. Having beaten Belarus 4-0 away last time out and with Le Bleu facing a tough trip to Bulgaria, Sweden have the opportunity to go top and it’s odds of (1.05) for them to win with AccessBET.

The Red Lions are second from bottom in Group A, 11 points from the play-off spot. This means they have no chance of making it to the finals in Russia next year. They are thus seen as outright underdogs with the same firm at odds of (25.00).

Luc Holtz’s men surprised many in their last outing when they held France to a goalless stalemate at Stadium Municipal. Another one is available at massive odds of (18.50).

Sweden are unbeaten in their last five matches against Luxembourg, winning four and drawing one. This makes them favourites to win to nil at (1.36).

Holtz’s side shouldn’t be taken likely as they were able to garner four points in the last round and keeping a clean sheet. They have also suffered defeat by more than a two goal margin in just one of their last eight qualifiers.

Janne Anderson’s charges winning this encounter by less than four goals is priced at (1.47).

The 1994 World Cup Bronze medallists have scored the highest number of goals and considering that Luxembourg is defense minded due to the gulf in class, punters can back them to score the game’s opening goal at (1.06) and both teams NOT finding the back of the net at odds of (1.31) with AccessBET.
