Sweden are one of the teams that have already qualified to the Knock-out Round of the Euros, but the final placing of this group is yet to be determined.
Sweden will now clash against Poland, who are sitting at the bottom of the group and only need a win in order to qualify.
Spain are hosting Slovakia in the other match of the group which makes things pretty fluid as it is.
Sweden are coming into this match after a slim, but extremely important, 1-0 win over Slovakia.
The first half was nothing pretty, with very few scoring chances by the two teams. However, Sweden were much better in the second half and scored a penalty kick at the 77th minute.
That win combined with the draw against Spain has allowed Sweden to sit at the top of this group with 4 points, while Slovakia have 3, Spain have 2 and Poland have 1. Sweden have already qualified and don’t actually need a win here.
They know that Poland will go all-in and they will look to contain Lewandowski, which is the key element to Poland’s game. Sweden have kept 6 clean sheets in their last 7 matches (3 friendlies), and generally tend to be very careful at the defense.
Poland were shocked when they conceded an early goal against Spain (Morata, 25th minute). They had just 21% ball possession in the first half and could not do anything of importance.
But they managed to pull back even at the 54th minute with Lewandowski, exploiting Spain’s defense.
Spain did have a chance to take the lead but Gerard Moreno missed on the penalty kick and the two teams ended up splitting the points. Poland are now left in the bottom spot of the group but still have qualifying hopes.
Poland can only qualify with a win against Sweden, there is no other possible scenario, and that means that they will attack. Or at least try. They have only failed to score against Italy in their last 14 matches (4 friendlies included), but they could be stifled by a solid Swedish defense.
Sweden vs. Poland Prediction:
Sweden are already through to the next round, even if they lose, the only thing remaining to be decided is the order in this group. Poland are with their backs against the wall and they will have to open up at some point.
Sweden have a solid defense and they will surely have a containment plan for Robert Lewandowski. He only needs a few good looks to score, but Sweden can make things really hard on the defensive end. And they are strong in the counter-attacks. Taking the Under here.
