Italy v Sweden predictions, betting tips and match preview

Sweden were knocked off the Netherlands by goals difference to reach this stage.

Sweden also had a solid home record as they won 4 of their 5 qualifying matches at home, drawing the other to the Netherlands.

These wins include a 6-0 bashing of Slovakia as well as an 8-0 win over Luxembourg and 2-1 win over eventual group winners France.

Sweden is desperate for a world cup appearance after missing the last one also and we think they will play to get at least a draw in this match.

Italy makes a tough journey to Sweden as they look to get to Russia 2018 through the playoffs.

Italy missed out on qualifying to Spain after falling 5 points behind the 2010 World Cup winners.

Italy lost only 1 of their away from home matches in the qualifying series and that was to Spain impressively while Italy won the 5 other matches.

Italy will need to take that form with them to Ibrahimovic’s home land and hope they can take an advantage home for the second leg.

Italy have won four and drawn one of the last five meetings between these sides.
