Estonia v Sweden: Back a Swede success in 15/2 Tallinn treble

Sweden football fans
Sweden should win in Estonia

Paul Higham expects Sweden to keep their Euro qualifying campaign alive with a win in Estonia - as part of a 15/28.50 Bet Builder treble in Tallinn...

It's been a bit of a disaster for both of these teams so far in Euro qualifying and this could well be Sweden's last chance to stake a claim for getting through.

Estonia haven't managed a win yet, which is understandable against Belgium and Austria - not so much against Azerbeijan.

It's a similar story for Sweden except they did put Azerbaijan away 5-0, and they'll hope to beat Estonia to keep at least in touch of the top two.

Leg 1: Sweden -1 on the handicap

Sweden are a funny old side as they've only scored in one of their three games so far, but one was against Belgium and Austria are also a side that keep it pretty tight.

Austria only scored a couple of goals late on so the Swede were well in that game, and Estonia are certainly a few rungs down the footballing ladder than those two.

And when Sweden do open the taps they showed they can score goals by sticking five past Azerbaijan and also four past New Zealand in a friendly in June.

Unbeaten in 17 games against Estonia with 15 of those wins - I'm taking the Evens on Sweden to cover a -1 handicap.

Leg 2: Sweden over 4.5 corners

So if we fancy a Sweden win they'll likely have the majority of the ball and they can certainly won a few corners.

They got four in Austria, five against Azerbaijan and even five at home to Belgium even when they were well beaten.

Without going overboard, because they're not prolific corner winners, but we should be pretty confident of Sweden winning five corners and 9/20 is good enough to flesh out our Bet Builder.

Leg 3: Estonia Over 2.5 cards

I very much like the look of 6/52.20 for over 2.5 Estonia cards as that's landed in two of their three games so far.

And it's landed in both of the game they've lost against better opposition, which at 23rd in the Fifa world rankings and with six wins in nine Sweden most definitely are.

Estonia got three cards at home to Belgium, three in Austria and even managed to get two against Azerbaijan - so another three here would be just about par.

Back Sweden -1 handicap, over 4.5 corners & Estonia over 2.5 cards @ 15/28.50
