Consider picks and bets on Sweden – Netherlands match today, September 6, 2016.
Is there life after Ibrahimovic? The greatest football player committed performances for the national team, and Sweden have to learn to win without their long-term leader.
Fortunately there is a successful experience. Here are the results of official matches against Sweden without Ibrahimovic, starting with the most recent – 2:0 Liechtenstein 1:1 Russia 3:5 Germany, 3:2 Netherlands, 4:1 Moldova 0:0 Portugal 3:0 Liechtenstein, 3:0 Denmark, 2:1 Iceland, 2:0 Spain, 2:2 England … in short, I will not bore – in the last 10 years, the Swedes have lost only 1 of the 13 official games without Ibrahimovic. The Germans, who won the World Cup in six months.
So overestimate care Ibra is not necessary. He is the greatest player but not the only one for the rest of Sweden. Perhaps his departure will lead to the collective game (stop only the ball, immediately seek Zlatan) and discover new talents. And here is full of good players all play for good European clubs.
In addition, Sweden rarely loses at home. In the group stages of the qualifying round – only 3 defeats in the last 12 years (that’s 31 games).
Netherlands in the current configuration, do not pull on the big favorites away from the Swedes. Nightmare started as a speech after a successful 2014 World Cup, and do not stop. A change of coach, but to no avail – with Danny Blind lost 3 of 4 official matches, only to avoid defeat in the match with Kazakhstan. Last week, Greece played a freight train – again lost, and in its same field. I do not know what it was, but the results are just disgusting.
In the selection for Euro-2016, I recall, the Netherlands lost 3 of 5 away games. Positive results were produced in Latvia and Kazakhstan (not grants), but its direct competitors (the Czech Republic, Iceland and Turkey) orange merged with a total score of 1: 7. And it is – a favorite? The situation is in fact still not normal. In any case, there are no preconditions to think otherwise.
A little skepticism is the line of the Dutch attack. From 6 caused forwards only one playing in the championship, which is in the top 5. And then – just Janssen moved to Tottenham, spent 3 games and has not scored a single goal. Robben, depots and Huntelar not caused, Drop midfielder Afellay too.
In the selection for Euro 2012 teams played in a band, and then Sweden in his field beat the Dutch 3: 2, and without the help of Ibrahimovic (he was injured). From the combination of all the factors I consider that the Netherlands here in general are not the favorites.
Our prediction: Sweden will not lose vague Netherlands not his field.
