Sweden vs Ukraine: Prediction and Betting Tips

20:00, Jun 29 2021
Sweden vs Ukraine prediction for the round of last 16 clash of the Euro 2020 at Hampden Park in Glasgow. Sweden who finished first in Group E will face Ukraine, one of four teams qualified as best thirds in their groups. Follow on for our free prediction and betting tips.

Sweden are favorites to advance to the quarters

Sweden were the surprise Group E winners ahead of Spain who played all three of their matches in Sevilla. A 94th-minute goal by Viktor Claesson against Poland in the final group match not only saw Sweden qualify for the second round but also secured the top spot in their group. They will now play a third-placed team in Ukraine that can be relatively easier than other opponents.

Coach Janne Andersson and his team feel they have a big chance of reaching the quarter-finals after exiting the tournament from the group stage in 2016. Sweden are in great form especially defensively as they have six clean sheets in their last games and have conceded 0.8 goals per game in those ten matches.

Sweden Key points

  • Sweden failed to score in just one of their last ten matches 
  • The average goals scored by Sweden in the last ten matches is 1.8
  • Sweden has not lost in their last eight matches

With some defensive adjustments, Ukraine may be a tough opponent

Squeaking through as the best third positioned team in the group stage on goal difference, Ukraine will be looking for a win in their first appearance in a knockout stage in the Euros. Shevchenko’s team needs to improve drastically in defense though having conceded 1.2  goals in the last ten matches.

Two wins in nine European Championships matches is not a good record to be proud of for Ukraine but Shevchenko must feel if they can play a good defensive tactic and take the match to extra time and maybe even penalties, they can have a chance of registering a surprise.

Ukraine Key Points

  • Ukraine had clean sheets in just two of their last ten matches
  • Both teams have scored in Ukraine’s six of their last ten matches
  • Ukraine have scored 1.2 goals in average in the last ten matches

Sweden vs Ukraine Prediction

Both teams will feel they have a good draw in the second round considering all the top teams they have avoided. Sweden did really well when they played for a draw against Spain and won the next two matches.

Ukraine qualified with just one win and despite losing by just one goal margin in their two defeats against Holland and Austria, they had five shots on goal in the game against the Dutch which shows they could be dangerous in the counters.

Sweden showed that they are a very tactically disciplined team since in all their matches they had the lesser part of ball possession but didn’t lose a match. We predict Sweden will qualify from this match.
