Blackstenius also scored the 1-2 winning goal against Germany in the quarterfinals helping Sweden to pull off the biggest upset of the tournament.

The Netherlands v Sweden – Both team’s forms in the past 5 games
As told earlier The Netherlands have won all of their games in the tournament. They are scoring 2 goals per game on average while giving away only 0,6 goals per game on average. Oranje has lost the ball possession only in one game and it was against Canada, which is another team that likes to keep hold of the ball. The Netherlands has completed 2 623 passes in the tournament and 2 212 of them were successful. The Netherlands has had more passes than their opponent in every game. 8 out of The Netherland’s 10 goals have been scored on the second half and three goals have been made within the last 5 minutes of the game. Half of the Netherland’s goals have been headers.
Sweden has lost only once in the tournament and it was against the biggest favorite to win the whole World Cup, USA. Sweden is scoring 2 goals per game on average while giving away 0,8 goals per game. You have to keep in mind that half of Sweden’s goals came against Thailand, who ended up scoring once while giving away 20 goals in three games. Sweden has completed 2 177 passes in the tournament and 1 677 of them were successful. Sweden lost scoring chances, passes and ball possession in every game they played against bigger teams that were the USA, Canada, and Germany. Sweden has needed the most shots to score a goal out of the semifinalists. Sweden has had 79 shots in the tournament and they have the second most missed shots in the World Cup.
Conclusion – What to bet on The Netherlands v Sweden
Both teams have done really good at both ends of the field and the teams have pretty similar stats when it comes to scoring and allowing goals. Out of these two, The Netherlands have been more impressive. In my opinion, Sweden had an easier group than The Netherlands and they were able to barrage shots against teams like Chile and Thailand.
The Netherlands is a fast team, really good at using wings and they are really dangerous on set pieces like corners and free kicks. The Netherlands have a super talented and dangerous front three in Martens, Miedema and Shanice van de Sanden and their midfield is supporting the attacks really well.
The reigning European Champion the Netherlands
is in the World Cup for the second time now and have already gone further than in their debut. For Sweden, this is their 8th World Cup and their best result is silver medal in 2003. In the last European Championships, the Netherlands went all the way and knocked out Sweden in the first playoff round. Last time Sweden has won the Netherlands was 2015.
Sweden has done great so far by beating Canada and Germany, but I believe that pulling off upsets will end here. I see the Netherlands taking control of the game and winning the possession. With more time with the ball, they will create more passes and scoring chances. A tight game, that Oranje ends up winning.
