Sweden v Germany – Handball Olympics 2016
The Sweden side had to be satisfied with runner-up position in the last 4 Olympic games. They without a doubt have strong ambitions to finish 1st this year, but it won’t be easy. Out of the last 3 friendlies, the Sweden squad managed to get 1 win against Argentina (11:20) and a draw and a loss against Croatia (25:25), (26:24). Now they are facing the promising Germany squad, who will want to start this year’s Olympic with a strong start.
The German side have won the 2016 European Championship, after beating Spain (24:17) in the finals. As for the friendlies played, Germany won 5 matches out of 8. They have beaten Qatar (32:17), Denmark (33:26), Austria (26:20), Tunisia (38:32) and Egypt (27:30).
Germany is a really strong team and are improving with each game. This will be a great chance for them to get a good start in group B and I am sure they won’t take this opportunity easily.
Prediction: Germany -1
Odds: 2.08 Pinnacle
