Sweden – time for revenge
Satrting at 18:15 in Zagreb, Sweden – France is the remake of last year world championships, a good opportunity for Sweden to take revenge after they lost the access to the semi finals.
Sweden – France
(Most recent H2H result: 14-42)
- After producing the first surprise of this Euro 2018 ( defeated by Iceland 24-26 ) Sweden managed to focus more on the competition and that brought them 2 victories. First one was quite logical versus Serbia (30-25) and the result reflected the quality between the two teams. The second one was a surprising win against Croatia (35-31) and that was a good way to prove that Sweden can’t be ignored during this Euro 2018.
- Sweden -France is more than a regular game. In handball is the game between the best teams in last 30 years. Even if the odds are disproportionate, it’s that kind of game where the teams are playing at the same level and it’s hard to predict the result.
- For tonight’s game i think that one of the key will be the form of the goalkeepers. It’s well known that Sweden has the best pair and my bet will be set up on that fact. Even if France has also decent ones, since the legend Thierry Omeyer retired the form of the goalkeepers during a competition is not stable. They can produce a fantastic game today and next match to be totally out of shape.
- So for tonight i will root for “the swedish beast” Mikael Apelgren and his desire of revenge.
Prediction: Sweden + 3.5 goals, odds: 1.50
- Confidence 65%
