Sweden vs Slovakia: Predictions and Betting Tips

14:00, Jun 18 2021
Sweden vs Slovakia predictions for this UEFA EURO 2020 battle on Friday at Gazprom Arena. After both of them saw surprise results in their opening matches, both the Swedes and Slovaks will be looking to take all three points to consolidate their positions at the top of the group. Read on for our free predictions and betting tips.

Sweden

The Swedes opened with a goalless draw against the Spaniards. In truth they spent much of the match being dominated the Spaniards, but at the pivotal moments when Spain had their chances, things went in favour of the Swedes.

Among the players of note for the Swedes after the first game are Alexander Isak, who was able to do a lot of damage on the counter-attack, and Robin Olsen, who made several vital saves in goal.

The Swedes have never lost to the Slovaks.

Slovakia

In their first match, the Slovaks caused an upset by beating Poland. Indeed, the Slovaks managed to dominate the Poles, and above all, nullify the talent of Robert Lewandowski.

The Slovaks proved to be a team that play very well together, sticking  together as a compact unit and attacking and defending together.

In six meetings against the Swedes, the Slovaks have never beaten them.

Key Stats

  • Seven consecutive matches without losing for Sweden comprising six wins and one draw
  • Sweden have only conceded one goal in their last six matches
  • Six consecutive matches without losing for Slovakia, comprising four draws and two wins
  • Slovakia have conceded at least one goal in four of their last five matches

Sweden vs Slovakia Predictions

Despite the Slovaks’  victory in the first match, we see the Swedes as a step above them in quality, and after drawing against a team as strong as Spain the Swedes won’t be lacking for motivation. In addition, the Swedes have individual players with the power to control the match, while the Slovaks depend much more on the team as a whole as they have no star player.

The Swedes showed that when forced to defend, they can step up the plate and they did a great job against the Spaniards, just as the Slovaks did when the match against Poland required. Therefore, we think that once a team gets ahead, they may turn their focus towards defending and the match may end with less than 2.5 total goals.
