The football fans will still get their money, because in qualifying numerous interesting pairings are on the program. In the game between Faroe Islands and Sweden, a prediction of the paper form is certainly clear for each Sweden.
But in football there are always surprises and for such a Färinger on Thursday evening in the home game against the Swedes to provide. However, the Faroe Islands have no realistic chances of qualifying for EURO 2020.
After four games completed the team of coach Lars Olsen is still without a point win in the last place in qualifying group F. Significantly more pressure in this comparison but in any case the Swedes. After all, the Swedish national team wants to qualify for the European Championship next year.
The Swedes are currently only in third place in the group after a defeat by Spain on the last matchday. In the match between Faroe Islands and Sweden, a tip on a surprise score of the hosts brings up to 20,00 very high odds. But this also shows once again the clear outsider role of the Faroese.
Faroe Islands – Statistics & Current Form
The island nation of Faroe Islands has a population of just 50,000 on its islands. Nevertheless, it is an independent nation within the Danish kingdom. Of course, due to the few inhabitants, the Faroes also have a hard time keeping up with other nations in sports.
For this reason, once again it is unlikely that you can qualify for the EURO 2020. In the past, the Faroese have never been able to recommend themselves for a European Championship or World Cup. A look at the table of Group F makes it clear that the Faroes are not competitive again.
From the games completed so far, the team of coach Olsen could not record a single point for themselves. But at least it was enough for the Faroe Islands after all in three out of four games for a goal.
“We will also give everything to Sweden again and try to deliver a good performance.” – Lars Olsen
This is definitely a success for the Faroe Islands. At the start on Malta, one might have secretly calculated chances for something countable. But even among the Maltese there was a narrow 1: 2 defeat under the line. No chances were the Faroe Islands after both the away game in Romania as well as in the home game against the former World Cup Spain.
At the end of both matches there was a clear 1: 4 defeat for the Faroe Islands. By the way, Jakup Thomsen scored the only goal from the game in the opening defeat on Malta. The other two goals came from a penalty. Here Viljormur Davidsen kept his nerve and put the ball under each goal.
In June, the Faroe Islands played their last qualifier at home against Norway. There was a goalless draw in the first half of the match, but at the end of the match there was the expected 0-2 defeat.

Sweden – Statistics & Current Form
The Swedes were known to be represented at the World Cup in Russia last year. There the Tre Kronor left an excellent impression and fought their way into the quarterfinals. There, however, the Swedes were the much weaker team against England and so the dream of moving into the semi-finals burst.
Generally you need new goals and dreams in life. The next big task for the squad of coach Janne Andersson is the qualification for the European Championship next year. Meanwhile, the Swedes in Group F are fighting for one of the two starting positions at EURO 2020. Under normal circumstances, it is likely that the group victory will go to Spain.
For this reason, Sweden will probably duel with Romania and Norway for second place in this group. From the Swedish point of view, the start of the qualifying phase was an important 2-1 victory against Romania.
“There are players that fit and players who may not be able to handle artificial turf so well.” – Sports expert Daniel Nannskog
Not quite as successful were the Tre Kronor afterwards at the away game in Norway. There, after a turbulent game by a 3: 3 draw but at least one point. Nevertheless, coach Andersson was certainly not completely satisfied with the result, because they went in stoppage time still in the lead.
Goalkeeper Robin Olsen had to concede another goal. Against Malta, Sweden did justice to the role of favorite at the beginning of June and celebrated a comfortable home win.
Shortly thereafter, the trip went to Spain, where you could hold a goalless draw for just over an hour, but in the end still suffered a significant defeat. In the upcoming duel between Faroe Islands and Sweden brings a tip on a Swedish success with around 1.22 only manageable odds.
For the Swedish national team but anything but a clear victory would be a disgrace. Where the Swedes in the last 27 away games only three times at least three hits in a game scored. For the assured away win the coach has also appointed three players from the Bundesliga with Sebastian Andersson, Emil Forsberg and Robin Quaison in the squad.
