Euro 2016 – Qualifications: Sweden vs Denmark

Sweden vs Denmark Betting Tip and Predictions. In the one of the most interesting matches in the play-off for EURO 2016, Sweden host Denmark in Stockholm.

Sweden finished as the 3rd team in Group G and they will try to reach the EURO 2016 in the two matches against their neighbours. Home national team played very good at home in these qualifications, they lost only once (3-1-1), so they have an advantage in the first leg. Sweden had very poor records against Denmark. In the last 5 matches against Denmark, Sweden failed to score, lost 4 of their last 5 matches in all competitions. Home side will be fully motivated to qualify on EURO 2016 and play in France next summer because they missed the last World Cup 2014, so this could be maybe the last chance for Zlatan Ibrahimovic to play on some big national football competition. Zlatan Ibrahimović, Kim Källström and Pontus Wernbloom have to be careful in this match, because if they got the card will miss the second leg. Interesting fact is that Sweden have never won – or scored – in a home qualifying game against Denmark.

Denmark didn’t manage to reach the one of the first two positions in Group I, they finished at the 3rd place. They started very good in these qualifications, but their performance in the last few matches was so poor. In the last three matches in group phase they failed to score, lost against Portugal 1-0 and took two points in draws against Armenia and Albania. Visitors have very tough defence and they will be more than happy if they don’t concede a goal in the first leg. Denmark’s players Pierre Emile Højbjerg, Lars Jacobsen, Simon Kjær and William Kvist are also a booking away from a ban.

Sweden vs Denmark injuries and suspensions

Sweden will be without Pontus Wernbloom and Albin Ekdal, while Kim Källström and Oscar Lewicki are both doubtful. Denmark miss Pione Sisto, while Leon Andreasen is also out because of a bizarre reason – he cut himself opening a parcel.

Sweden vs Denmark possible lineups

Sweden: Isaksson; Martin Olsson, Antonsson, Granqvist, Lustig; Zengin, Källström, Lewicki, S. Larsson; Guidetti, Ibrahimovic.
Denmark: Schmeichel; Durmisi, Agger, Kjær, Jacobsen; C. Eriksen, Krohn-Dehli, Højbjerg, Wass, Braithwaite; Bendtner.

Sweden vs Denmark Prediction

Both teams want to play in France on EURO 2016 next year, but I expect very tough game between Sweden vs Denmark and not many goals.

Sweden vs Denmark Betting Tip: under 2.5 goals @ 1.50 (Bet365)
