Group D will be decided on Tuesday night, with France looking for a positive result against already-eliminated Sweden to book a place in the quarter-finals.

Sweden have been disappointing in the tournament this time round, with a 2-1 defeat to Ukraine following by a 3-2 reverse to England. The side have had problems defending for set pieces, with a large majority of their recently conceded goals come from opposition headers. Erik Hamren’s men have thrown away leads in both games so far, and will be especially annoyed at losing to England after being 2-1 ahead. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the nation’s captain and most talented player, and the team will hope to end their campaign with a win before going home. Bwin have Sweden at odds of 5.75 to get a consolation three points.

France are looking like a team ready to challenge, as Laurent Blanc’s men have gone about their business in an assured fashion over the last two years. Les Bleus dominated possession in their opener but were held to a 1-1 draw against England, but made amends last time out with a 2-0 victory over Ukraine. Jeremy Menez and Yohan Cabaye grabbed the goals in the victory, and Blanc’s side now will hope to top the group and avoid Spain in the next round with a comprehensive victory. Bwin have France as frontrunners at odds of 1.62 for a win.

Sweden will look to improve before departing, but France will be the best side that they have faced to date. My Euro 2012 football betting tip is a 2-1 win to France, which Bwin have at odds of 8.00.
