Euro 2016 Odds and Predictions: Sweden vs Russia

Sweden will take on Russia at the Friends Arena in their next Euro 2016 match on Thursday.

On Thursday evening Sweden will play Russia at the Friends Arena in the next round of Euro 2016 matches.

These teams have played each other a total of five times since 1970. Their last game was in 2008 when Russia won 2 – 0. Before that they played in 2002 and that game ended in a 1 -1 draw. In total each team has won two of the games.

Last month Sweden beat Estonia 2 – 0 and drew 1 – 1 with Austria. They were the team’s first games since January of this year when they were defeated 2 – 0 by Belgium. Russia had more success last month beating both Azerbaijan and Liechtenstein 4 – 0.

Despite this and the fact that Sweden failed to reach the World Cup, the bookies still favour Sweden for a win with odds of around 7/5. Russia has odds of around 2/1 at many bookies as does a draw.

William Hill Odds: 8/5 Sweden to Win, 2/1 for a Draw and 19/10 Russia to Win.

Ladbrokes Odds: 29/20 Sweden to Win, 2/1 for a Draw and 19/10 Russia to Win.

Bet365 odds: 7/5 Sweden to Win, 21/10 for a Draw and 21/10 Russia to Win.
