Sweden vs France: Match preview

Sweden enjoyed a successful Euro 2020 qualifying campaign which saw them reach next summer’s tournament.

The Swede’s finished runners-up to Spain in Group F, losing just once and winning on six occasions.

Janne Andersson’s side are in great form heading into Saturday’s clash having won five of their last six.

Their last defeat was all the way back in June 2019 to Spain and they have since gone on a run of 8 games without one.

Robin Quaison will be a player to look out for on Saturday following a strong Euro 2020 qualifying campaign netting five goals.

He also netted on 13 occasions in the Bundesliga for Mainz last season.

The world champions France will have a tricky time to trying to gain top spot in Group 3.

With Sweden enjoying good form, Portugal being the reigning champions and Croatia, a very good side, Group 3 will be a very exciting watch.

Towards the end of qualifying for Euro 2020, France had some shaky moments as they scraped wins over both Iceland and Moldova and were held to a draw by Turkey.

Last week, France discovered the news that they will be without Paul Pogba on Saturday and Tuesday after he tested positive for coronavirus.

Pogba ended the season strongly with Manchester United and is likely to be a big miss for Didier Deschamps’ team.
