🔥 Our Hot tip

Under 2.5 total goals

Three of France's last five matches have produced under 2.5 goals

France top League A Group 3 of the Euro 2025 Qualifiers with two games left to play and will secure their spot in Switzerland next summer if they beat Sweden on Friday night.

The visitors occupy second spot in the group on seven points, two behind France and level with England, so a draw at the Stade Gaston-Gérard could prove to be a decent result as the Scandinavians would face England at home in their final qualifier.

France vs Sweden Women prediction: France to edge out their guests

Key Stats

France preview: Looking to bounce back following England defeat

France won their opening three qualifiers but their winning run came to an end last time out against England.

The hosts conceded two first-half goals but despite pulling a goal back in the 72nd minute via a Kadidiatou Diani penalty, Hervé Renard's side were unable to carve out an equaliser in the time remaining so lost the game 2-1.

Predicted lineup: Peyraud-Magnin (GK), Renard, Karchaoui, de Almeida, Lakrar, Bacha, Henry, Dali, Geyoro, Diani & Katoto

Sweden preview: Have the best defensive record in the group

Sweden were always expected to win against an Ireland side that had lost their opening three qualifiers without scoring a single goal but left it late.

The pair went in at the break goalless and it wasn't until six minutes from time that Sweden eventually broke the deadlock, captain Magdalena Eriksson scoring to secure a valuable three points for the Scandinavians.

Predicted lineup: Mušović (GK), Sembrant, Andersson, Eriksson, Lundkvist, Angeldahl, Rytting Kaneryd, Asllani, Rolfö, Janogy & Olme

Player to watch – Marie-Antoinette Katoto

Despite being packed with goals, this France side haven't made the most of their chances in the final third, only scoring five times in their opening four qualifiers.

Marie-Antoinette Katoto is the only French player to have scored more than once in the Euro 2025 qualifiers and the 25-year-old has a great record for her country, 29 goals in 39 caps.

Leading the way in the qualifiers for France with two goals

We're not expecting many goals in this game as Sweden have the best defensive record in the group but if anyone is going to score the winner for the hosts then our money would be on Katoto.
