Betting Tip: @ Andreas Granqvist to score first @ 16/1 with williamhill

People seem to be harsh about this particular last sixteen clash and it’s pure snobbery when you consider that Sweden won Group F.

That’s right, the Scandinavians finished ahead of Mexico and Germany as well as South Korea to land that top spot, with Janne Andersson’s team carrying on from where they left off when eliminating Italy in the play-offs.

It’s not a team of superstars, although the front pairing of Marcus Berg and Ola Toivonen are causing problems for defences, while they have a rock solid midfield four that encompasses Claesson, Larsson, Ekdal and Forsberg.

Indeed, the team has remained exactly the same for all three games (barring a central defensive switch) and the 4-4-2 has worked a dream, with the defeat against Germany pretty harsh considering that they led 1-0 and could have had a penalty for 2-0.

Switzerland are a decent enough team although it was noticeable the way that Costa Rica went at them in the final match and we should expect them to be attacked in this one too.

The Swiss rode their luck to draw 1-1 with Brazil and it was another slow start when beating Serbia 2-1, with Vladimir Petkovic’s side having plenty of heart although a last minute victory against the Serbs was the only time they tasted a win.

Watch out for Andreas Granqvist in the First Goalscorer market, with the defender having bagged twice from the penalty spot already and it might have been three if they had enjoyed a spot kick.
