Sweden vs New Zealand: Top Free Betting Tips

Sweden will host New Zealand in an international friendly match at Friends Arena in Solna on Friday night. The home side will be looking to maintain their impressive form after a 5-0 victory over Azerbaijan in their last match. On the other hand, New Zealand will be hoping to build some momentum after ending their six-game winless run with a 2-1 win over China PR in their latest encounter.

Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

Both Sweden and New Zealand have been involved in matches with high-scoring affairs recently. In their last six games, Sweden has scored 15 goals, which averages 2.5 goals per game. Additionally, three of their last five matches have seen over 2.5 goals scored. Meanwhile, New Zealand has a slightly lower average of 1.4 goals per game in their last five matches, but they have scored three goals in their last two fixtures. Furthermore, considering the attacking talent at their disposal respectively, there is a high probability that this match will finish with over 2.5 goals.

Both Teams to Score Prediction: Yes

Sweden and New Zealand have both had their moments in front of goal recently, and we could see both sides find the back of the net in this match. Sweden has scored 15 goals in their last six games, which includes a 5-0 win in their last match against Azerbaijan. Additionally, key players such as Alexander Isak, Emil Forsberg, and Anthony Elanga can cause problems for any defence, and they should have opportunities to score in this match. Meanwhile, New Zealand has only scored four goals in their last six games, but they did score twice in their last match against a defensive Chinese outfit. With Sweden conceding in three of their last five games, New Zealand's forwards will fancy their chances in this match.

Correct Score Prediction: 3-1 to Sweden vs New Zealand

Sweden is expected to be too strong for New Zealand in this match, and they should be able to score a significant number of goals. Their recent form has been impressive, while the same cannot be said about the All Whites, who struggled to score goals recently but more importantly keep rivals at bay. They did score twice in their last match, it is unlikely that they will be able to score more than once against a strong Swedish defence. Sweden's better-attacking battery should be able to create numerous chances and convert them into goals. Based on their respective recent form, Sweden should come out on top with a 3-1 scoreline.

Sweden vs New Zealand Fixture Preview

Sweden Preview

The Blagult missed out on the 2022 World Cup and, will be looking to build on their 5-0 win over Azerbaijan in their last match and maintain their impressive recent form. The visitors, meanwhile, ended their six-game winless run with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over China PR in their latest encounter.

New Zealand Preview

However, New Zealand has struggled for consistency recently, and their lack of creativity and efficiency in front of goal could be a major stumbling block against a solid Swedish side that boasts significant firepower up front. This will particularly come under question given Sweden's front line of Alexander Isak and Emil Forsberg, who have been in good form and should cause problems for the Kiwis' vulnerable defence.
