Sweden vs Poland: Predictions and Betting Tips
The Swedes go into the third match knowing that a draw is enough to see them through to the last 16. Therefore, they can opt for a more defensive game, risking less in attack by having fewer players going forward and keeping more in defence.
Undoubtedly, the player to watch among the Swedish team is Alexander Isak, who after a solid game against Spain, played an impressive match again against Slovakia.
Out of eight total meetings with the Poles, the Swedes have won on seven occasions.
Going into this tournament, Poland were never considered among the top European teams but even still their performance has been lacklustre and the results are not going their way.
Poland has no choice but to go out and play for victory in this game, as even a draw would not help them qualify.
The Poles have Robert Lewandowski, arguably the best centre-forward in the world, on their side but if his team-mates are unable to keep up and get the ball to him, the danger he poses is diminished. This is what we have been seeing so far this tournament.
- Seven wins for Sweden in their last eight matches
- Sweden have only conceded one goal in their last eight matches
- Five consecutive matches without winning for Poland comprising two defeats and three draws
- Poland have conceded at least one goal in all of their last five matches
Sweden vs Poland Predictions
As we have said, the Swedes need a draw to achieve their objective, and they are a team that, when playing defensively, are very difficult to beat – they have only conceded one goal in their last eight games. Furthermore, the Poles are playing weakly in offensive and lacking inspiration. That is why we think this match could end in a draw.
We think it will be a very close game with few opportunities and expect the game to have less than 1.5 total goals.
