SWEDEN VS SPAIN PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
Sweden reached the 1/8 round of Euro 2021 and once held Spain 0-0. 9 consecutive unbeaten matches in all competitions, including 7 victories, showed the stability of Andersson’s students. In that series of matches, Sweden only conceded 4 times and kept 6/9 clean sheets. Sweden’s extremely cohesive team play makes them a very difficult opponent to beat. In the first 2 rounds of WC qualifying, “Green Gold” won 6 absolute points without even conceding a goal. The attack is not overestimated without the service of Ibrahimovic, but this is a very pragmatic team. They are ready to punish any mistakes of Spain as well as protect the obtained results.
Spain has passed their golden age, although they have just reached the semi-finals of the Euro, overall the performance is less convincing. They let Sweden and Poland hold a draw at home and almost received a bad result against Croatia in the 1/8 round. In the last 7 matches, Spain has only 1 win against Slovakia, even in the WC qualifiers, Greece also drew 1-1. Obviously, names on the attack like Morata or Sarabia did not meet expectations, if not disappointing. Statistics show that in the last 5/7 matches, “Gaur” did not score more than 1 goal, of which there were 2 matches against pragmatic opponents. Although the level and quality are still much higher than Sweden’s, this will not be an easy match for Enrique’s students.
It will be an active defensive game from Sweden in the context of Spain’s attack being erratic. The defense is well organized, the opportunities for strikers are not many, especially when Spain lacks individuals who can shine. The last 2 encounters of the 2 teams did not have more than 2 goals, the last 5/7 matches of each team also had similar results.
Select: Under 2.5 FT.
The record against Sweden is not too bad, even the last two meetings were inconclusive. Although Spain is still highly rated, Sweden has never been an easy opponent, especially in major tournaments. Remember that Andersson’s students have just led the Euro group that Spain also participated in, their bravery is undisputed.
The performance of Enrique’s team in the recent period is really unstable. From the draw with Greece in the World Cup qualifiers to the achievement of winning only 1/5 of the last Euro matches, the attack was continuously disappointing. The Swedish side’s extremely stable form is easy to see, unbeaten in 9 consecutive matches including 7 victories against Poland. Particularly impressive is the tenacious competitive spirit and extremely prolific physical foundation.
Select: Sweden FT.
European odds still highly appreciate the possibility of Spain winning. However, this option has many potential risks because “Gaur” is clearly in a declining period. Sweden with exciting momentum and scientific play can completely create a balanced match.
Select: Draw FT.
