Sweden never won a home qualifier vs Denmark
Hosts are in better form
All eyes on Ibrahimovic
The hosts will fight for their first ever qualification home victory against their neighbours and Sweden vs Denmark odds say they might reach that achievement.
The first leg of their EURO 2016 qualification matchup in Solna on Saturday night will be the 105th Sweden vs Denmark clash. The record is well-balanced with Sweden winning 46, Denmark 40 and 18 games resulting in a draw. Let’s check out the best Sweden vs Denmark odds with the courtesy of Bet365 Sportsbook, one of the most recognized internet betting sites around!
The hosts are favoured by Sweden vs Denmark odds
Sweden are 2.25 (5/4) favourites to win the first leg with the Danes being 3.40 (12/5) underdogs and draw priced at 3.20 (11/5). Neither of these two sides are in a great form however. Sweden was able to scrape out two 2–0 wins against Liechtenstein and Moldova after suffering an embarrassing 4–1 home defeat against the excellent Austria and also going down against Russia.
Meanwhile Denmark are without a victory in their last four outings, playing goalless draws against Albania and Armenia before suffering two close defeats versus Portugal and France. They are not easy to beat but they tend to lose against the better sides and this also goes for Sweden. On home soil, for such beneficial odds however, the Swedes worth to wager on.

You might find a safe bet amongst Sweden vs Denmark odds
The last time they met in Euro qualifiers in 2007, Sweden recorded a home 0–0 and before that an away 0–3. The latter came after the game was suspended at 3–3, because of a Denmark fan attacked referee Herbert Fandel for awarding a penalty for the visitors and sending off Christian Poulsen in the 89th minute.
According to online sportsbooks in Sweden, it is hard to imagine that an incident like this would happen again in this fixture, and a six-goal thriller is also unlikely. And it is not that bad if you consider the health of the supporters’ nervous system. In their last five meetings it never happened that both teams would score a goal, and this will get you something that is very close to a safe bet in this matchup.

Player to watch: Zlatan Ibrahimovic
Sweden are looking for their first home win in a qualifying game against Denmark and also their first goal. It is most likely to come from arguably the biggest Scandinavian footballing superstar ever, Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The PSG striker is in excellent form, scoring nine goals in his last ten appearances for club and country. He also scored both in his last three internationals.
A goal, maybe the only goal of the game is expected from Ibra by experts of successful sports betting strategies. Ibrahimovic, at 34, rarely let Sweden supporters down with a record of 59 goals in 109 international games with six of them coming in 2015.
