Belgium vs Sweden 22 June 2016: Euro 2016 Preview and Predictions

Zlatan Ibrahamovic will end his Sweden career after this tournament and this game against Belgium might just be his last. The Swedes have not had a good tournament and the PSG striker has not scored yet making it likely that this might be another loss.

Belgium turned on a great performance against the Republic of Ireland and that got the belief back in the side. This team lost their first game but inspired performances from Romulu Lukaku, Axel Witsel and Kevin De Bruyne led them to a comfortable win in the second game. This match might be very similar to that of the second game where they are a mile above their opposition and might just cruise home for a win.

Sweden will know that winning this game will be tough and it will require a poor performance from Belgium since this squad is just not on the same level as that of the Red Devils. Zlatan will play with heart since this might be his last game but even that won’t be enough in my opinion.

Belgium should win this game but we are not getting a good enough price to bet on this result. Belgium are paying a very short price and in order to make a profit a massive bet is needed and I don’t have that much confidence in the outcome. I think betting on the goal line is the best option here and we should take the over 2.5 goals. Both teams are great going forward and even without Sweden scoring, you would back this Belgium side to score 3 goals. We are getting a pretty good price on this result and taking it is the best option. This game has only really one good bet since the other bets aren’t paying well enough so the over 2.5 goals is the way to go.
