France is hosting Sweden at Stade des Princes in round 6 in the UEFA Nations League.
France is in good form, and how could they not be with a team like that. After a loss to Finland in a friendly game, France has gotten back on the winning track against Portugal in the Nations League. France has had 50% of ball possession in that game, 7 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 6 big chances created, and 84% of the correct passes. As I’ve mentioned before, it was a good game with good chances and good defenses. France was able to score first in the 53rd minute, and the score hasn’t changed again. France has won this match 0-1. With 13 points, 8 scored goals, and only 3 conceded goals, France is in 1st place in their Nations League group. Mbappe and Griezmann are the leading goalscorers for France with 2 goals each, while Upamecano, Kante, and Giroud added 1 goal each. Digne, Griezmann, and Martial each added 1 assist. After winning the World Cup, France is the biggest favorite to win the Euro Cup next year, but the competition is tough, and I’m not sure if France is consistent enough in the attacking end to beat teams like Belgium.
After 4 losses in a row in the Nations League, and 5 losses in their last 6 games overall, Sweden was playing against Croatia last weekend, and they have had a solid game. Sweden has had 44% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 77% of the correct passes. Sweden has scored 2 goals at the end of the first half, and they were defending well throughout the second half. Sweden has won this match 2-1. Danielson, Berg, and Kulusevski have each scored 1 goal for Sweden in the Nations League. With 3 points, only 3 scored goals, and 9 conceded goals, Sweden is in the last place in the standings, and with a win here, they will take over 3rd place if Croatia doesn’t win their game against Portugal. Sweden has some good players lie Lindelof, Forsberg, and Kulusevski, but when they are playing against stronger teams, Sweden is having a rough time creating chances. The good news for Sweden is that they will be playing in the Euro Cup next year, but they will need to play a lot better if they want to have an impact in this competition.
France has won 2 of their 4 home games against Sweden, and they have won the latest match against Sweden on the road. When playing at home, France has never lost to Sweden, and they are the better team here despite being without Mbappe. France needs only 1 point here to secure the top spot in the Nations League, and I think they will get all three. Sweden is a good team, but they are not even close to France.
