Sweden is doing well in the 2018 World Cup qualifying stage, currently in second in Group A of the competition with 10 points. The latest result for the Scandinavian side was a huge 4-0 win over Belarus, but before that did have a tough 2-1 loss to France away from home. Sweden does have a very talented roster with players who militate all over Europe. The most intriguing player by far is Emil Forsberg of RB Leipzig who had a breakout season in the German Bundesliga. It will be interesting to see if the home-field advantage can help the host in this clash.
France has been one of the best teams in this UEFA qualifying stage, currently topping Group A with 13 points. Les Bleus are coming from a comfortable 3-1 win against Luxembourg in the qualifying stage and defeated Sweden 2-1 before that encounter. France’s latest fixture was an international friendly match against Paraguay, which it did manage to win by a score of 5-0. Didier Deschamps does count with some of the best young players in the world on his squad like Raphael Varane, Paul Pogba, Antoine Griezmann, Ousmane Dembele and Kylian Mbappe. Deschamps has a world of options on his roster and it will be interesting to see what starting 11 will be on the pitch for Les Bleus this Friday. The match should be one of the best this weekend and should present an exciting, contested duel.
