UEFA Group A World Cup Qualifying Table
After claiming a 1-0 victory in Luxembourg when these teams met a year ago, anything other than three points would be a massive disappointment–and a massive blow to the World Cup chances–for Sweden.
Assuming Sweden gets three points, and assuming Netherlands does the same against a Belarus side that has tallied just five points in eight matches thus far, that’s going to set up an absolutely massive meeting at the Amsterdam Arena on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, France controls its own destiny. Two victories in the last two matches, and Les Bleus will secure a spot in Russia, though that’s hardly a guarantee given that they have to go into Vasil Levski National Stadium, where Bulgaria owns four victories in four matches during this stage of qualifying.
If Bulgaria can grab three points from France, we could very easily head into the final day of Group play with Sweden at 19 points, France at 17, Netherlands at 16 and Bulgaria at 15. With just one spot in Russia and one spot in the second-round playoff available, we could have a wild end to this group.
