Wednesday, 22.06.2016 at 21:00 o’clock
Is Sweden able to surprise?
When on the third day of play of the group E Sweden meets Belgium then the team of Marc Wilmots is the clear favourite. On the contrary to Sweden, Belgium wasn’t able to score points at the first match. Kick-off on the 22nd of June is at 9 p.m..
Current performance of Sweden
At the first match of the Scandinavian we could see an old sorrow. If Zlatan Ibrahimovic doesn’t have a good idea and the team also has no good idea than Sweden will be no dangerous rival. Against Ireland the superstar haven’t been very dangerous. In Addition after the match he even talked about a missing quality at the team. These are things that the team of Erik Hamren doesn’t need right now. Rumours say that he is busier with his own future than with the performance at the EURO 2016. All the players beside the number than that should have meant troubles at the offensive play also haven’t been dangerous. At the defence there also have been some gaps. Especially the connection between defence and attack is not working out at the moment. The middle field has been overtaken form their rivals. The balancing score even has been an own goal by Ireland. However at the test matches Sweden did know how to convince. They have won against Wales with a clear score of 3:0. The matches against Slovenia and the Czech Republic have ended in a drawn.
Current performance of Belgium
Some people have seen Belgium as one of the favourites for winning the title and they still do this. However at the first match the single players from Marc Wilmots have been caught by unawareness from the Italian strong defence. Nonetheless against Sweden they are still the favourite. One problem of Belgium is that the strong single players do not work as a team when they should. This could also be a problem at the match against Sweden. Against Italy Belgium also has shown a weakness at the defence. The absence of Manchester-City-player and Captain Vincent Kompany couldn’t be compensating. At the test matches the team has also shown a good performance without their captain and have beaten the Switzerland (2:1) and Norway (3:2). What also has shown at the test matches that they had to take a goal from the other side even against weaker teams for example like Finland (1:1). With Hazard & Co probable can only a few teams keep up with the offensive play of the team but at the match against Italy they also hadn’t the right penetration. The last match between these two teams has been won by the Wilmots eleven with a sovereign score of 2:0.
Betting tip for this match
At the offensive play Belgium is strong. However is Sweden able to bring in Zlatan Ibrahimovic good than a goal would be possible. Both teams stand under pressure at the fight for a ticket for the eighth finals. We think that in the end Belgium will win this match. Our tip: tip 2.
