Reason for Sweden vs Ukraine Predictions
Sweden and Ukraine had very different fortunes at the group stage, and as they face off in the round of 16, both will be hoping to secure a quarterfinals slot. This seems like the easiest of the pairings for this stage, and either side will love it. Sweden combined grit in defense and fluidity in attack to top a group that had Spain, Slovakia, and Poland, drawing with Spain and winning the final two matches to pick the most points in the Euros group stage in their history. In their last three euro campaigns, Sweden has been eliminated at the group stages, yet here, they have the chance to get to the quarters. It is a chance they’ll relish, and they’ve had a good run in 2021 and are still unbeaten this calendar year, with seven wins and a draw in their eight matches. Emil Forsberg has been among their key players, and with four goals in his last four games, he will definitely attract a lot of interest here. Mattias Svanberg plays excellently and does not allow the opponent to play in the middle of the field. Alexander Isak is an excellent striker playing in Real Sociedad, and he is expected to score as many goals as possible and bring joy to his nation.
This might have seemed like a matching draw on paper, but when stats are put in focus, Ukraine does not match Sweden at all. Andriy Shevchenko’s men have won just three of their nine matches in 2021, and in the last 16 matches, they’ve managed four wins. They haven’t kept a clean sheet in the current Euro tournament, and their only win came against minnows North Macedonia. That happens to be their only win at the Euros in the last eight matches, and they’ve lost all the rest, so this is their first time ever to get out of the group stages. Their first-ever win at the Euros, back in 2012, was over Sweden with Shevchenko scoring a brace in the 2-1 win, and they will be hoping for a repeat here. It wasn’t a stroll in their group; they were impressive in the latter stages of their game against the Netherlands but were beaten 3-2. Andriy Yarmolenko is a true leader in the club and the national team. Roman Yaremchuk is experienced, he is doing great in the penalty area, and he means a lot to the national team.
Sweden is the slight favorite in this match, and we will see if they can take advantage of the bad form of the Ukrainians.
The prediction for this match is over 1.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
