Sweden

The hosts had a good run at the last UEFA Europa League group stage, finishing top of the table ahead of Spain. But then Jann Andersson’s side unexpectedly suffered a defeat in the last eight. The Ukraine national team faced the opposition, and the favourite of the upcoming meeting was evident. However, the Swedes responded to Oleksandr Zinchenko’s goal with Emil Forsberg, and in extra time they conceded a goal in the 121st minute from Artem Dovbik to leave the tournament (1,Russ.).

The team also botched the end of the Mundial qualifying cycle. After their 2-1 home win against the Spaniards in early September, it looked as though the Scandinavians would go nowhere – but November’s fixtures in Georgia (2-0) and Sevilla (1-0) wiped them out. Even Ibrahimovic, who returned to the national team after an injury, was of no help. By the way, Zlatan will not be helping the home side in the upcoming game due to his suspension, and neither will Newcastle centre-back Emil Kraft.

Czech Republic

The Czech Republic are one of the sensations of this past Euros. No one initially bet on Jaroslav Šilhava’s side but they beat Scotland in the group stage, played out a 2-2 draw with Croatia and finished third in the group stage before progressing to the last eight. The Czechs sensationally overcame the Netherlands 0-2 at the Puskas Arena to progress to the quarter-finals, where they lost 1-2 to the Danes (2-2). Patrick Schick, on a par with Ronaldo, was the tournament’s top scorer (5 goals).

The visitors needed no second place in World Cup qualification, having won their group in the Nations League and automatically qualifying for the knockout stages. In November, the team defeated Estonia at home (2-0) and Belarus in Kazan (also 0-2).

Opposite encounters

The last time the teams met each other in a friendly match in 2016, and then it all ended in a 1-1 draw.

Prediction for Sweden vs. the Czech Republic

It is difficult to predict the favourite in this confrontation, the teams are about the same level and selection of players. However, the upcoming game is sure to be productive. Despite an injury to Schik, Shylagva has some good attacking players in their squad (Vydra, Masopust, Barak, Soucek). The Swedes look a formidable force even in the absence of Ibrahimovic (Isaac, Forsberg, Kulusevski, Ekdahl). The teams are likely to score at least once each.
