Sweden face Slovakia in the second round of Group E fixtures. The Swedes have never been beaten by Slovakia and will look to continue that unbeaten sequence here. Check out our full betting preview for the latest team news, match odds and betting predictions.
Sweden 🇸🇪 Team News
This is Swedens sixth consecutive European Championship finals appearance. The Swedes qualified for Euro 2020 having finished runners-up to Spain in Group F. They started their Euro 2020 finals campaign against a much fancied Spain team. However, the Swedes showed amazing resilience and managed to hold out for a goalless draw.
Janne Andersson, Sweden coach...
"I don't think Slovakia will press as high as Spain did, and we will get to showcase other aspects of our game. The key will be settling into our own way of playing – we had too little of that against Spain. The other week we played Armenia, a side that also defend deeper, and played an excellent match offensively."
Sweden Predicted Lineup
Olsen; Lustig, Lindelöf, Danielson, Augustinsson; S Larsson, Ekdal, Olsson, Forsberg; Isak, Berg
Key Player: Robin Olsen
Swedens no1 goalkeeper was extremely busy against Spain in the opening game. The Swedes aren't prolific in front of goals and if they are to progress they'll need to count on their no1 shot stopper between the sticks.
Slovakia 🇸🇰 Team News
The Slovakians will be chasing a victory against Sweden that will see them qualify for the next phase. They were hugely impressive in their opening game against Poland and came away with all three points as underdogs.
Štefan Tarkovič, Slovakia coach...
"I told the players that victories such as the one over Poland should be enjoyed, but it is true that after five minutes of fame, comes 20 minutes of work. Always! We are looking forward to this one. We expect a tough match, and I think Sweden have more quality than Poland. This is a new challenge for us, but we believe we can enjoy more success."
Slovakia Predicted Lineup
Dúbravka; Pekarík, Šatka, Škriniar, Hubočan; Kucka, Hromada; Haraslín, Hamšík, Mak; Duda
Key Player: Marek Hamsik
Slovakia's most decorated player and talisman. This will likely be Marek Hamsik's last performances for his country and their all-time leading goalscorer and most-capped player will be looking to go out in style. A talented attacking midfielder, he will provide the threat the Slovakian side need against very strong Group E opponents in Poland, Spain and Sweden.
Sweden v Slovakia Head to Head
Sweden and Slovakia have met on five times previously. Sweden have won twice with the other three matches ending in draws. The last meeting between the two teams ended in a 1-1 draw in October 2018.
Sweden v Slovakia Match Prediction
Sweden will be hot favourites to win this game, but the Slovak's have held the Swedes in three of their 5 previous encounters. Goals may be hard to come by and Slovakia will likely keep it tight for as long as they can.
