Stadium: Hampden Park (Glasgow)
Ending the agenda of the 1/8 finals of Euro 2020 will be a match between Sweden and Ukraine, which was third in its group. Will the Ukrainian team be able to qualify for the quarterfinals of Euro or will the Swedes win over the Ukrainians? We're leaning toward the second version, and below you'll find out why we think so.
Sweden current form
The Swedish team left the group in the first place, beating the Spaniards, the Slovaks, and the Poles. However, it was not done in cold blood, as one would expect from the Swedes, but with great difficulty. Of course, the first place in the group would not have been possible without the discipline and dedication instilled by the national team coach Janne Andersson. But the epic blunders by Alvaro Morata and Robert Lewandowski, who played an important role in the success of their team. As it is, we have what we have. If you don't score, they score for you. That was the Swedish team's basic tenet. That's how they got to the ¼ finals of the last World Cup.
Ukraine current form
The Ukraine national team captivated everyone with their second-half performance against the Netherlands, when they evened the score, losing 0-2 in the course of the match. But in the end, Andriy Shevchenko's men lost 2-3. Then, there was not the most convincing and controversial game against Northern Macedonia, which with great difficulty managed to hold on to win 2-1. After that, the Ukrainians lost the deciding game to the Austrians, 0-1. In the end, Ukraine scored three points and made the playoffs thanks to a better goal difference. Now the Ukrainians need a miracle to overturn the Swedes. With the raw game, the Ukrainians have been showing at this Euro, success is very hard to believe.
