Sweden vs France prediction and match preview
Sweden picked up seven points from their four Group B2 games in the 2018-19 UEFA Nations League thereby securing promotion to League A in this edition of the Nations League. Janne Andersson will have a tough task at hand as his side takes on world champions France, but the manager will fancy his side’s chances of winning this fixture. Andersson has won six of his last eight games and will be looking at ways to grab all points.
France will look to do well after not having done much in Nations League last time around and will look to dominate the game as they will want all points from this fixture. France have been drawn with UEFA Nations League title holders Portugal and World Cup finalists Croatia in this set. Their next few fixtures, therefore, are bound to get tougher.
