Sweden v Denmark Betting Tips and Predictions – Euro 2016 Play-off

Sweden v Denmark betting tips and predictions for this weekend’s Euro 2016 qualifying play-off first leg with a match preview and the best odds for our three bets.


Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s Sweden will face Denmark in a Nordic derby as eight teams chase the remaining four places at Euro 2016 through playoffs this weekend and our football tipster has picked his best three football betting tips.


Sweden v Denmark Predictions


This fixture has many years of history with both sides meeting on 104 occasions before Saturday’s fixture in Stockholm. Over that period of history between Sweden and Denmark Sweden have recorded 45 victories and Denmark 40. In recent meetings it has been Denmark who have dominated this rival fixture winning the last four meetings without conceding a single goal. The most recent of these victories came in a friendly in May 2014 where a Daniel Agger goal separated the sides. 


Sweden come into the play off on the back of two 2-0 victories in their closing qualifying fixtures, and during the qualifying campaign they only recorded one loss at home (W3 D1 L1). Denmark on the other hand managed only one win away from home during their unsuccessful campaign, (W1 D2 L1) failing to score in the last two of those matches. With Christian Eriksen, who has been recently criticised by his manager, not producing the same form he is showing for Spurs and with Bendtner not being able to find his form that he so often has in front of goal for his country, there is a lack of creativity and goals in this Danish side at the moment. For that reason, as well as this game inevitable going to be a tight and tense affair with Olson likely to set his team up to defend and concede as little or if not any goals as possible.


My first Sweden v Denkark betting tip for this weekend’s Euro 2016 qualifying play-off is under 1.5 goals in this match, the best odds for this are 17/10 with 888Sport.

Just like Olsen and his side have relied on the goals of Nicklas Bendtner over the years the same can be said of Sweden who like no other side in the world rely on their talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic more for goals, victories and leadership. In this qualifying campaign alone he has contributed eight out of the 15 goals scored by Sweden, and it clear to see if it’s not Zlatan who else will it come from Ola Toivenan? John Guidetti? those names wont fill Swedish fans with confidence of breaking down what has been a resilient Danish defence against them these past few years. But the undeniable fact is that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has the ability to do or create anything at any moment, and that is Sweden’s one advantage and I feel a man of his quality will make the difference in a very evenly contested game. For that reason my second Sweden v Denmark betting tip will be Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score anytime.


The best odds for Ibrahimovic to score anytime are 5/4 but if you open a Paddy Power account you’ll get a massive 9/1. That’s a £90 profit from a £10 bet – BET HERE


At 34, Zlatan will be desperate to add one more major tournament to add to his all-important legacy as a man and player. Furthermore, the defeat to Portugal in their last play-off fixture painfully lost Sweden their place at the most recent World Cup.  With this in mind, Erik Hamren and his side will be out to make things right in this fixture and giving themselves a chance of qualifying when they visit Copenhagen and giving their talisman the send-off he deserves on top off the world stage. 


This is a brilliantly intriguing fixture as not only is it a last chance for the national hero of Sweden to qualify for a major tournament but also the Danish manager, a legend on and off the pitch for Denmark. Morton Olson also desires qualification to crown off his long serving history and legacy as his 15-year reign as manager comes very close to ending. Be sure that both sets of players will be desperate to qualify and honour their respective legends with the prize of beating their Nordic rivals and qualifying for Euro 2016.


My final weekend football betting tip for Sweden v Denmark is Sweden half time and full time result, Ibrahimovic and Sweden will come out the blocks fast getting an early goal then the game will tighten up, the best odds are 31/10 with 888Sport.
