Sweden and Slovakia will open Friday’s action in EURO 2020 group stage 2nd round. Both sides had a successful start, and they want to keep their unbeatable run going.
Sweden vs Slovakia Match Preview & Team News
Blågult’s winning streak came to an end in their EURO 2020 opening match, but they won’t be too upset about it. Sweden managed to snatch a point against Spain and significantly increased their chances of going further. Janne Andersson’s side got what it came for and earned a goalless draw against one of the title contenders. Although they were pretty inferior, Sweden managed to neutralize the majority of La Furia Roja’s attacks. Mikael Lustig and the lads managed to keep their fifth clean sheet in the last six games, and Sweden looks very tight in the back. Nevertheless, those opponents were not among the top ones, this record can only provide a boost of confidence. Sweden wants to get back on the winning track and come very close to the knockout stage spot.
Slovakia also had an excellent start to the campaign, as they celebrated a vital 2:1 victory over Poland. However, despite having a half-time lead, Stefan Tarkovic’s side severely hanged over the cliff after Poland equalized. Nevertheless, when it seemed they won’t make it, Slovakia got generous help from their rivals and an extra player on the pitch. Marek Hamsik and the lads haven’t tasted a defeat on the previous six occasions, but they celebrated just twice during that period. Another three points could definitely seal their place in the knockout stage.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
It is going to be a tight clash that can go either way. However, we think Sweden is a slight favorite, and they could celebrate their first victory in EURO 2020. Sweden has also been more successful in their head-to-head clashes in this millennium.
Goals Market Prediction
Sweden has been pretty tight in the back recently, and they are looking forward to another disciplined performance. Slovakia had a lot of luck in the premier clash, and we believe this one will remain under a 2.5 margin.
