On October 7 2016 at 19:45 in the regular game of the World Cup 2018 qualifiers at the Josy Barthel Stadium Luxembourg play against Sweden.
Luxemburg are not the strongest team of the continent, so they appear to become the outsiders of any competition they take part in. This also happened during the Euro 2016 qualifiers. After 10 games played they managed to win once, draw once and lost the rest of the games. In the first round of the current qualification Luxemburg played pretty well and even had a chance to draw Bulgaria after they scored on the 90+1 minute. Yet they concede a goal on 90+2 and lost an opportunity to get any points.
As for Sweden, they disappointed the fans a lot during the latest international forum. They were definitely expected to show a better result, than the last place in the Group E. Sweden drew Ireland 1:1 and lost the rest of the games to Italy 1:0 and Belgium 0:1. As for the current World Cup qualifiers, Sweden only played one game against Netherlands. They showed really poor performance and are to be satisfied with the draw 1:1.
There were 4games played between the teams. In the far 1979 Luxemburg managed to draw 1:1 and the rest of the games were won by Sweden. Even though Sweden show pretty unstable results, they are still the absolute favorites of the forthcoming game.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score – No.
