Match Preview

The Swedish national team will face the Slovakian national team on matchday  2 of Group E Euro 2020, Friday (18/6/2021). This match will be held at Krestovsky Stadium, Saint Petersburg.

On matchday  1, the Swedish national team held Spain 0-0 in La Cartuja, Seville. Sweden lost badly in  possession and the number of shots, but their defense which was raised by Viktor Lindelof could not be torn down. Goalkeeper Robin Olsen also appeared impressive with five saves.

Meanwhile, Slovakia beat Poland 2-1 at Krestovsky Stadium, Saint Petersburg. Slovakia won through Wojciech Szczesny's own goal and Milan Skriniar's goal.

This time, in the same stadium, Marek Hamsik and his friends will face Sweden. They will try to break the bad record of never winning over Sweden.

Slovakia confidently looking at the second game. However, Sweden seems quite deserved to be seeded. If they are able to defend as solidly as against Spain, but this time combined with a better attacking game, then Sweden has a chance to beat Slovakia in the second game of Euro 2020.
