England 20/21 to beat Sweden in Saturdays World Cup quarter-final showdown
Competition: World Cup
Market: England win
Odds: 20/21 @ Bet 365
With a spot in the semi-final against either hosts Russia or Croatia on the line, England will look to carry on their momentum when they face off against Sweden on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with Sweden, despite beating 2006 World Cup champions Italy to book their spot in Russia, few expected The Yellows to come through a difficult Group F. In their three group matches, Sweden won two, drew 0 and lost one, scoring five and conceding two goals in return. Finish with a points tally of six, their goal difference saw them beat Mexico to top spot in Group F. After coming through Switzerland 1-0 last week, Sweden have now won three of their last four and have also kept a clean sheet in those three victories. Despite their resilient form at this summers World Cup finals, we do belive that an incredibly confident England side will be a hurdle to far on Saturday afternoon.
As for England, after beating Colombia 4-3 in their first ever World Cup penalty shoot-out victory, The Three Lions have qualified for the quarter-final of a World Cup for the first time since 2006. After three matches in Group G, England won two, drew 0 and lost one, scoring eight and conceding three in return. As for their recent form, England have now only lost one match since June 2017 and one man to watch is captain and talisman Harry Kane. The Tottenham striker now has six goals at this summers World Cup finals and tops the goalscoring charts. Backing England to progress to the semi-finals at 20/21 seems like the most logical bet here.
