The final round of European World Cup qualifiers start on Sunday night, with some huge showdowns headlining a busy day of action. We’ve got a 189/1 mega accumulator for Sunday’s World Cup action included in our free football tips, while we’ve got match predictions for each game.
Among those games is Spain’s meeting with Sweden, with just a point between the pair. The Swedes know a win will take them top, while Spain need at least a point to secure their spot in Qatar next year.
Among our Spain vs Sweden predictions is a 28/1 bet builder tip. We picked out three same-game multi selections for the clash in Seville and you can see each selection below.
Spain vs Sweden Bet Builder tip
Both teams to score
These two met in an incredibly forgettable 0-0 draw at Euro 2020 but it’s hard to see a repeat of that here. Sweden were happy with that point in the summer, but they need more in this visit to Seville. It’s a must-win clash for the visitors, so back them to get forward.
The Swedes have found the net in eight of their nine games since that draw with Spain in June. Spain have also been better going forward since then, scoring in 11 straight matches. The pair have bagged a combined 26 goals across the first seven rounds in this group and their meeting in September saw the Swedes win 2-1
Jordi Alba to make an assist
The Barcelona left-back isn’t the man you’d expect to be creating chances, but he’s been a key part of Spain’s bid to make the World Cup. He’s laid on four goals for his teammates in only three qualifying appearances, so he’s likely to be a threat to Sweden here.
In addition, Alba has three assists to his name across his last three Barcelona appearances so he’s really well priced for an assist in this game.
Albin Ekdal to be carded
It’ll be a big test for the Swedish midfield here, while it’ll also be a massive test of Ekdal’s discipline. The Sampdoria midfielder has been booked in five of his last seven appearances ahead of this crunch game.
Ekdal has picked up two bookings in three World Cup qualifying starts so far and that marks him out for us as the best bet for a player to be carded.
