Group D leaders France are 4/7 to beat Sweden as Laurent Blanc's men look to secure top spot and move closer to winning a first European Championship title since 2000.
The French, who will be hoping to significantly improve their goal difference to boost their chances of finishing above England, are 9/2 to win by three or more goals.
Les Bleus are 4/7 favourites to win Group D and 1/100 to qualify, with only a heavy defeat to Sweden, who are already eliminated, jeopardising their qualification prospects.
Blanc's side have embarked in a remarkable 23-match unbeaten run which is a record only bettered under World Cup winner Aimé Jacquet who amassed a 30-match run
However, victory over Ukraine was their first win in a major tournament since defeating Portugal 1-0 in the semi-final of the 2006 World Cup, which suggests the draw (14/5) could be worth a look.
Karim Benzema is the 7/2 favourite to score first despite failing to find the net at the finals so far, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic represents Sweden's best hope of breaking the deadlock at 8/1.
Sweden have a terrible recent record against France and have not beaten Les Bleus since 1969, a 2-0 victory during World Cup 1970 qualification, and a repeat of that result is available at 25/1.
Ibrahimovic may be the favourite to open the scoring, but Lyon midfielder Kim Kallstrom is the only member of the Swedish squad to have scored against Les Bleus before - a spot-kick in the dying minutes of a friendly clash in 2008 - and he is 6/1 to find the net in 90 minutes.
