EUROPA: FIFA World Cup - qualifiers
Match start: 20:45 (GMT+2)
During the 9th round of the qualification campaign for the FIFA World Cup Russia 2018 Netherlandsand Sweden had gained important victories but the chances of these teams for getting into next stage are really different. Now Sweden has +19 at difference of scored-missed goals, and Holland has +7. The difference of gained points is +3 in favor of Sweden. As a result, to get into the World championship Netherlandshave to win over Sweden with the advantage of minimum 6 goals and in this case everything will be decided either upon the number of scored goals or in case of equality of this factor on held meetings. But the winning of the game with the difference of 7 and more goals will ensure Holland the getting into the World Cup (in case the team won’t get the last place among all teams that had taken the second positions in their groups).
As we see the team of Dick Advocaat needs the miracle to gain successful outcomes. Terrible performances of Holland at the beginning of qualification campaign had led this nice European team to sad position at the tournament bracket and practically ruined all chances for getting into the World championship.
Bearing in mind the fact that Sweden can face real massacre during the game against Netherlandsthis team has ensured itself fantastic advantage in terms of difference of scored-missed goals over opponents having won over Luxembourg with the score 8:0. As a result, defeats with the score 1:4, 0:4, 0:5 are not terrible for Sweden. Also the moment of distribution of the positions of teams that had taken the second places in their groups is very important and in case of huge defeat Sweden can take 9 position from 9 teams.
There are great doubts that Sweden will try to play actively but Holland has nothing to lose. That is why we wait for goals scored by both teams.
