Betting suggestion:

This encounter marks the meeting between two of the great teams of Europe, who have been campaigning similarly so far in their respective groups of World Cup Qualifiers. Both sides are in second place: Portugal in Group B and Sweden in Group A. Meanwhile, Portugal has a better record in continental competitions, having won the European Championship in 2016. Sweden, however, stood out for the 1958 World Cup campaign when it was Runner-up. As principal, the Portuguese have not lost ten games. Thus, we expect a balanced and high quality game between two selections that have been highlighted by its offensive power, being a good bet to bet on a game with more goals than usual.
