Germany vs Sweden World Cup Prediction 23rd June 2018 – 7.00 p.m

Not many people would have expected the kind of pressure to be on Germany that there is as they face up to Sweden on the weekend at the World Cup. The Germans were taken out by Mexico 1-0 in their group opener which leaves them in a strange position of playing catch up. They didn’t look great and have to up their game here against the Swedes. Sweden have three points from their opening game and another three here would potential send Germany home and the Swedes through to the knockout phase. A point wouldn’t be a disaster for Sweden either and that means that Germany are going to have their work cut out for them.

Germany vs Sweden Odds*

Germany 2/5
Draw 4/1

Who will win Germany vs Sweden?

A big three points on offer in this Group F clash so who will win in this Germany vs Sweden showdown? The bookmakers are siding with it being the Germans as they need to really find their feet and produce a far sharper, more clinical display than they did against Mexico. But Die Mannschaft will know that they are going to be in for a physical battle against Sweden who will pose their threats on the break. It is really going to be game on in this one.

Die Mannschaft under pressure

The biggest upset of the first round of group stage matches at Russia 2018 happened to Germany as they were beaten 1-0 by Mexico. That leaves a whole lot of pressure on Die Mannschaft as they face up to Sweden on the weekend. They need to get a win under their belt, but strangely Germany have not been doing much of that lately. Germany’s record in their last six games reads W1 D2 L3 and the win in that sequence was a narrow 2-1 success over Saudi Arabia. After cruising through their World Cup qualification campaign where they were joint top scorers in UEFA, it’s all gone a bit south for them. That’s three defeats in their last four games which they have suffered.

They just didn’t do much with the ball in the final third of the pitch against Mexico and need to sharpen up. After scoring so freely in qualification, Germany haven’t managed more than one goal in any of their last five games now. Both teams to score at bet365 is at 21/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from June 21st, 2018 at 00:21 a.m.) which piques your interest in Germany v Sweden predictions. They will need to get better service to frontman Timo Werner who is the 15/4 first goalscorer favorite* (Betting Odds were taken from June 21st, 2018 at 00:21 a.m.). The thing with Germany is that it is not just their attack misfiring because they have not kept a clean sheet in seven games either. The Germans are favourites for this game and a Germany 2-1 option at 15/2* (Betting Odds were taken from June 21st, 2018 at 00:21 a.m.) may be worth considering from our Germany v Sweden predictions.

Can the Swedes land Round of 16 spot?

Sweden just need a win here and they will be playing in the round of sixteen and at the same time, they would be sending Germany home most likely. Imagine that. Sweden got a 1-0 win over South Korea in their opening match, thanks to a covered penalty. While a win gets them a guaranteed top-two finish, a draw does mean that they will finish above Germany and therefore likely in the top two. So this is really a chance that the Swedes can’t afford to miss as it would take a lot of pressure off them. They were a free-scoring side through their World Cup qualification campaign, but like Germany, they have gone off the boil, but worse. The penalty they scored against South Korea is their only goal in their last four games played. In none of their last nine matches have Sweden produced more than one goal in a game (W2 D4 L3). But then again while they haven’t been scoring, Germany can’t seem to keep a clean sheet so there will be hope for them. Given the circumstance of knowing that a draw will all but get them over the line, a Sweden-Draw Double Chance is at 2/1 odds with bet365* (Betting Odds were taken from June 21st, 2018 at 00:21 a.m.).

Germany vs Sweden Prediction

This should be a tense game and Sweden will probably see the value of digging in there and producing a rearguard action if need be to get at least a point. The Swedes will get chances at the other end of the course and while their form isn’t good, there is still appeal in going for a Sweden-Draw Double Chance for our predictions as the Germans just look a little bit amiss at the moment.
