Sweden vs England betting tips and predictions for the World Cup quarter final on Saturday 7th July with the best bets advised and which bookies to use to get the best odds for our selections.
It’s D-Day for England as they take on Sweden for a place in the 2018 World Cup semi-final. They needed penalties to beat Colombia in the last round and Sweden did well to overcome Switzerland 1-0. This will be another difficult task for England but they should be much happier playing European opposition as we go deeper into the tournament.
Despite this being a World Cup quarter final with so much on the line, we do think both teams will score here. England are get to keep a clean sheet in the tournament and that will be a concern for Gareth Southgate. Harry Kane is firing in the goals but Sweden will fancy their chances against this defence. They scored three against Mexico and took the lead against Germany in the groups so do not be surprised to see this both teams to score tip land.
England forward Harry Kane has already scored six times at the World Cup and despite three of them being penalties, he has to be considered for an anytime goalscorer bet. The Tottenham forward can do no wrong at the moment and England are fantastic from set pieces, meaning defenders are nervous and holding onto players, leading to penalties. None of the other England players are really stepping upto the plate infront of goal so we might need to rely on Kane. Therefore we’re putting Harry Kane in as our first goalscorer betting tip for Sweden vs England.
As we know, England do not do things easily and they needed penalties to beat Colombia. That was a last minute equalizer and the nerves were jangling in extra-time, however, this weekend could be the time England actually win a World Cup quarter final in normal time and although we’re not expecting a walkover, our selection is for England to win the tie in the 90 minutes. The odds for this are Evens with Boylesports but you should use the 40/1 for England to win offer at Ladbrokes.
In our Sweden vs England prediction above we’ve already tipped both teams to score, and an England victory. Therefore, for the correct score prediction on Saturday’s matah we’re going for a narrow 2-1 England victory. This does look set to be a close match despite the recent fixtures between these two teams being high scoring. The last World Cup match between England and Sweden ended 2-2 when Joe Cole scored that famous screamer from distance. The Sweden vs England correct score prediction is for England to win the match 2-1.
The Swedes will be without suspended Mikael Lustig due to suspension and it is expected that Sebastian Larsson will return to the starting line-up. Jummy Durmaz faces a race against time to be fit but Albin Ekdal should return.
Dele Alli was struggling with an injury against Colombia and he doesn’t look 100% fit, however he might make the starting line-up. Jamie Vardy is England’s major injury doubt and he wasn’t able to take a penalty in the shoot-out. Kyle Walker had cramp but should be fit to start and Ashley Young also got a knock on Tuesday night. Kyle Walker, Jordan Henderson, Jesse Lingard and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are all a yellow card away from missing a potential semi-final.
