Sweden vs Chile: In one of this Saturday’s several international friendlies,
that will take place in Stockholm, Swedish capital.
At the Friends Arena, the local side Sweden and the visiting side Chile will face off, in what will be the 2nd meeting between the European and the South-American side, with their previous meeting finishing with a 1-1 draw, also on a friendly in 2006.
The home side comes into this match certainly more motivated than what they were before, since the team pulled up off an epic qualification for the World Cup in Russia.
Knocking out the super favourite and traditional Italy on the play-off, completely surpassing the expectations and building up on the positive campaign they had made on the qualification stage for the World Cup.
The team is coming off a positive streak of results, not losing on their last 4 matches (and every one of them finishing with less than 3 goals being scored), not losing at home for over a year.
As for the visiting side, they come into this match exactly on the opposite pole of their opponents in this match, probably still in shock by the failure that was his performance on the South American qualifiers for the World Cup, ending up being eliminated on their last match, being “replaced” by Peru.
The team is that way coming off a negative streak of matches recently, having only won 1 match in the past 8 months, getting 4 losses on the last 5 matches they’ve played.
Sweden vs Chile – Betting Tip and Prediction:
With a Chile having a generation nearing its end of cycle and with Sweden that has been showing an interesting consistency, especially on defence.
I believe this match will result on a low-scoring affair and with both teams trying to test out solutions and less utilized approaches, which should result on a higher chance of this match finishing without many goals.
