Sweden take on Belgium in a crucial match in Group E on June 22 at the Allianz Rivier in Nice. Both sides need a good result here to continue in the competition, although a draw would be enough for Belgium, but Sweden can’t take anything else than win to avoid the early plane back to Scandinavia.

Sweden come into this after a 1-1 draw with Ireland, and then a close 1-0 defeat against Italy. Sweden have still yet to register a shot on target in two games at Euro 2016, but were unfortunate not to get a point against Italy after a dogged performance in the worst game of Euro 2016 so far. But Sweden are hanging on, and Zlatan has been showing touches of class, even if, at times, he looks disinterested. Nothing but a win will do here for Sweden, to continue their run at Euro 2016, so expect at least one shot on target from the Scandinavians.

Belgium have had a mixed bag at Euro 2016. They started with a 2-0 defeat to Italy, in which they were disorganised at the back, and lacklustre up front. However, they then got things back on track with a great 3-0 win over the Republic of Ireland, showing while they’re one of the best countries in the world. Belgium showed great confidence on the ball, attacking guile and a rock solid defence. Romelu Lukaku put on a real striker’s performance against Ireland, which is the first one we’ve really seen at Euro 2016. Belgium need a point to wrap up second place and hopefully get a better draw come the knockout stage.

Sweden have faced Belgium 14 times, with Sweden winning 4 games, Belgium winning 8, and there’s been 2 draws between the two countries. Belgium won their last meeting, which was a friendly in 2014, 2-0. Their last competitive match was at Euro 2000, which Belgium won 2-1.

Sweden vs Belgium Match Betting Tips:

Both teams will want to win here. A draw is no good for Sweden, as 2 points won’t be good enough to secure a best third-placed slot, so they’re going to be looking t get Zlatan some chances. However, Belgium showed some real class against Ireland, a team that outclassed Sweden for the most part. The form line shows the Belgium are a cut above, and there is a bit of value to be had on Belgium to wrap up second place in Group E. Belgium to win is the no-brainer for us here, as Sweden haven’t even had a shot on target during this tournament, and against a side like Belgium, it’s not going to be easy for them.

Sweden vs Belgium Prop Bets:

There’s a few avenues to look at, but I have to say that I was impressed by Romelu Lukaku against Ireland, and it looks like he’s the main danger for Belgium up front. Romelu Lukaku to score first is what we’re going for here. Belgium will want to win, Lukaku is the main outlet, and he looks like a bit of value to open the scoring for Belgium.
