Sweden v France

The pyrotechnics didn't all go off in Peru last night, as the hosts' 1-0 victory over Paraguay left us a couple of goals short. It appears all of last night's drama leaked into politics instead.

We move back to Europe, and a vital World Cup qualifier between Sweden and France. The European Championship runners-up are three points ahead of Sweden in the race for top spot in Group A.

Now that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has departed the international scene, Sweden are seeking a new hero. They may well have found one in Leipzig playmaker Emil Forsberg. He was one of the best players in the Bundesliga this season (he contributed a league-high 19 assists), and in his last international appearance he scored twice in a 4-0 win over Belarus. He also scored a stunning free-kick in the reverse fixture, a game the French edged 2-1.

France have so much strength in depth that it's frankly ridiculous, with red-hot teenage striker Kylian Mbappe the latest star in their dazzling constellation. Didier Deschamps' side have only dropped two points so far, and there is a togetherness in the squad that has been spectacularly absent at times in French football's recent past.

I fancy goals here. France have scored ten goals in five qualifiers, but have conceded against Bulgaria, Sweden and Luxembourg. Sweden have scored 13 goals in their last three games, including a 3-2 friendly win in Portugal last time out. They haven't drawn a blank since a 1-0 defeat to Belgium at Euro 2016.

Both Teams To Score is trading at 2.12, and that's a price I'm happy to snap up.
