Sweden vs Ukraine Preview
Although not expected to win Euro 2020, Sweden have been one of the most entertaining sides of the calendar year with goals in nine of their last 10 matches in all competitions – drawing their only blank in their opening match of this tournament against Spain.
Even though Andersson’s men had little possession against La Roja they still managed to create some excellent chances to score and they have shown this year they have plenty of firepower.
Alexander Isak has been in excellent form despite not scoring, with the Real Sociedad forward attracting plenty of admirers for his all-round play.
Ukraine, meanwhile, came into the competition on a six-match unbeaten run which included a 1-1 draw in World Cup qualifying against France, but Shevchenko’s men have already lost twice at Euro 2020 and conceded in all three group games.
Indeed, Ukraine’s only clean sheets in their last 12 fixtures have come against Northern Ireland and Cyprus and they could struggle once more to keep out what looks like a dangerous Swedish attack.
Sweden vs Ukraine Tips and Predictions
The price of 11/8 (2.38) for Sweden to win is certainly big enough for consideration while combining this selection with Sweden to score over 1.5 goals sees the odds rise to a healthy 12/5 (3.40) .
