Sweden vs Algeria – Free Betting Tips & Predictions
Sweden complete their short run of friendly fixtures with a tough test against Algeria in Malmo on Saturday. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.
Sweden to Win
Sweden overcame a tough test against World Cup side Mexico on Wednesday evening with a solid 2-1 win over El Tri in Girona and back on home soil on Saturday, the Swedes will be pushing for victory again when they host Algeria. Sweden have lost only one friendly game in their homeland since 2015 and that superb record should give them the impetus they need to add another positive result to that sequence this weekend. Indeed, Sweden are searching for their fifth friendly win in a row at home here and they have the class to secure it at Algeria’s expense.
Both Teams to Score
While we expect Sweden to score enough goals to win Saturday’s friendly test, a clean sheet for the hosts could be tougher to secure. The Swedes conceded for the seventh time in eight matches when they allowed Mexico to impact the scoresheet on Wednesday evening and Algeria have enough talent in the final third to stop their hosts earning a shut out this weekend. Incredibly, the African side have scored in 25 of their last 27 matches and they have the mettle to trade blows with Sweden, even if a defeat is on the cards. With that in mind, we recommend backing both teams to notch in Malmo.
