Sweden v England Betting Tips & Preview
Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions roar into action against Sweden
Time: 15:00PM BST
Location: Samara Arena
England are in the 2018 World Cup quarter-finals! Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions roared into the final eight with their first ever penalty shootout victory at a World Cup over Colombia. Sweden, meanwhile, had to edge past Switzerland in their clash to reach this stage and set up a crucial clash in Russia.
The main man and potential star of the show will again be England’s key marksman Harry Kane. The Spurs sharpshooter was on target from the penalty spot during normal time against Colombia before also dispatching in the shootout. He is the leading goalscorer in the tournament and is looking to cement his Golden Boot award with further strikes here.
In what is another exciting quarter-final match-up, Brazil are the obvious odds-on 5/6 favourites with Paddy Power to prevail and famously secure their spot in the semi-finals. Sweden are threatening outsiders though at 7/2 to rally to what would a massive result on Russian territory for them.
Head to head
These two nations have a rich history, having met on no less than 23 times before. Incredibly the pair are level on seven wins each as well, with nine draws having been played out.
