Sweden vs Spain Betting Tips

Sweden are playing Spain in the Friends Arena in Solna, Sweden on the 3rd of September 2021 at 00:15 IST. Sweden are unbeaten so far in the tournament while Spain have played a match more are also unbeaten as well, this match could put an end to that streak.

Sweden Form and Team News

Sweden are part of Group B in the world cup qualification tournament. They are placed at the second position now with six points from two matches. They won both of their opening games against Georgia and Kosovo pretty comprehensively as well. On Friday though, they are facing the toughest opponent in Spain. This match could potentially decide the number one placed team from the group. In the Euros, Sweden were the dark horses across the championship, they managed to win quite a few matches against top class opponents and eventually faltered against Ukraine in the knockouts to get eliminated. They are in good form however regardless of that, and the Euro match against Spain can be used as a template as to how Sweden could tackle the Spanish style of play.

Coach Jan Anderson, the Swedish National Football team coach has been guiding the team quite well in the recent past and that is starting to reflect on the results column as well. After a four-match losing streak in the recent past, Jan managed to pull the team up and win seven of their last nine matches coming into this tournament. He will look at one game at a time and get the desired results with the team. The team even though lost the last match, showed enough glimpses of a good outfit playing some awe-inspiring football at times and they would hope to continue that.

Spain Form and Team News

 Spain are the number one placed team in the Group which also has the likes of Sweden, Greece, Georgia and Kosovo too in the mix. The Spanish are presently in the number one position after their unbeaten run in the tournament so far. They have won two and drawn a game in the three matches played as part of the group B fixtures and have secured seven points thus. Their recent form is decent, this also includes the semifinal run in the Euro. They got knocked out in the penalties against eventual champions Italy. But Spain during the tournament showed enough as to why they can’t be counted out of reckoning even without some of their star players. They have enough youngsters to leave a mark in the times to come. They are facing Sweden in the next game and if they don’t forget what happened when they last faced against each other, Spain will need to change the approach a bit to break the Swedish down.

Former Barcelona superstar manager Luis Enrique had taken over the coaching duties of the Spanish national team some time ago. He has so far been decent with his strategies and team selections. He has a very young side at his hands which can be made into the world-beating side that Spain in the early 2010s’ were in some years time. This team has the potential to reach that point. One major setback is that their talisman captain Sergio Ramos would miss the tournament. Dani Olmo has scored on two occasions with Ferran Torres too having the same record. Jordi Alba has been quite spectacular so far with three assists so far.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Spain are favourite to win this match. Their recent record is comparatively bad than Sweden but one fact is that Spain have had quite a lot of draws in the recent past, and their previous meeting against Sweden in the group stages of the Euro can be a testimony to the fact as to how Spain can be dominating at times. They just need to translate that to goals to win this tie and they look like they would do it nonetheless. 

Tip 1: Spain to win

Spain against Sweden in the head to heads has been able to showcase quite a strong record in any competition they have faced against each other. Spain have won three games and drawn two games in the six games played against the Swedes so far. They have lost just a solitary game in the process. They are also unbeaten in the last five head to head meetings winning three matches in those. The last match they played against each other also showed why we can expect Spain to win this game, Lucha’s team showed enormous control throughout the game just not managing to win but showed enough proof of how they can play against the Swedes in a competitive game. So we can expect Spain to win this world cup qualifying match against Sweden on Friday given their head to head stats and recent meetings. The odds for the same according to the Casumo Sportsbook is 1.70.

Tip 2: Both teams to score

In the last five matches played by Spain across competitions, four of those have had both teams score. While playing away, four of the last five matches Spain have played across competitions have had both teams scoring. While playing as the host, Sweden had two of the last three matches where both teams have scored. Three of the last five matches they have been part of across competitions have had the above condition being satisfied. Playing head to head with Spain, two of their last four games have seen both were part of both teams scoring scenarios. Out of their last three qualification matches, Spain had all three matches where the above condition was satisfied, so it’s most likely both teams might end up scoring. The odds for Both Teams to score according to the Casumo Sportsbook is 1.88.


Both teams facing each other for the second time this year and this promises to be of the same quality of play they showcased last time around. Spain are expected to win but count Sweden out on your own peril. Summarising on a couple of bets from above:

  1.     Spain to win @1.70
  2.     Both teams to score @ 1.88
