Prediction: Sweden vs Poland

Prediction: Sweden to win 2-0

Best Odds: 12/1

Bookmaker: Betfair

Sweden and Poland will face each other in their final Euro 2020 Group E game this week. The match is scheduled to kick off at 5pm UK time on Wednesday and will take place at the Gazprom Arena in Saint Petersburg.

Sweden

Sweden are at the top of Group E at the moment with four points from two games. The Swedes are not certain of qualification yet, but a draw with Poland is all they need to book their place in the last-16 stage of the European Championship.

Janne Andersson’s side kicked off their Euro 2020 campaign with a goalless draw with Spain in Seville and then beat Slovakia Saint Petersburg 1-0, thanks to Emil Forsberg’s goal in the 77th minute.

Team News:

Alexander Isak will continue to lead the line for Sweden.

Poland

Poland find themselves at the bottom of Euro 2020 Group E with just a point from two games. The Poles still have a small chance of going through to the last 16, but for that to happen, they need to beat Sweden by a big margin.

Paulo Sousa’s side started their European Championship campaign with a 2-1 defeat to Slovakia and then held former world champions Spain to a 1-1 draw.

Team News:

Robert Lewandowski will lead the line for Poland. Midfielder Mateusz Klich could drop to be substitutes’ bench after struggling against Spain.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Sweden have won five of their last six games,
  • Poland have won one of their last six games.
  • Sweden have won 14 of their 26 matches against Poland.
  • Poland and Sweden last met in 2004. The latter won 3-1.

Conclusion

Poland do have a good team and have a world-class striker in Lewandowski, but Sweden are better as a collective and should win the Euro 2020 fixture with relative ease.

Prediction: Sweden to win 2-0

Best Odds: 12/1
