Spain vs. Sweden Preview & Picks

This Monday will kick off Group E of Euro 2020, where there will be an interesting face-off between the Spanish national team led by Luis Enrique, who has put together a group where there is no for the first time in a long time Real Madrid player. While, the Swedish team is led by Janne Anderson, who’s determined not to count on the top scorer of the national team, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, due to a knee injury. However, the team has excellent quality players such as Emil Forsberg, Alexander Isak, Victor Lindelof, and the company. This duel will take place on Monday, June 14, at 14:00 E.T. at the Estadio Olimpico de La Cartuja in Seville and broadcast by Sky Sports

Five interesting facts between the two teams ahead of the Euro 2021 debut: 

1. The two teams have only met on one occasion at the European Championship, in 2008, when Spain defeated Sweden 2 goals to 1. 

2. In the last five matches between the two, the Spanish national team won 3 matches, there was one draw and one victory for the Swedish national team. 

3. The Swedish national team will be looking for its fourth victory in its history against La Roja. 

4. La Roja has not lost in 7 matches; their last defeat was 0-1 against Ukraine. 

5. Sweden has not been defeated in 5 matches when they lost to France 4-2. 

Let’s review the current situation of both teams to face the continental European tournament: 

Spain: Spain’s participation in Euro 2020 closes the first part of a tumultuous cycle of renewal of the Spanish national team that began after the Russia 2018 World Cup. It started with coach Luis Enrique, who eventually stepped aside due to personal problems. Robert Moreno took over as his assistant, who subsequently ended up being effective in the position. However, after the death of Luis Enrique’s daughter from cancer, he was offered the job again. With 26 points (eight wins and two draws), the national team comfortably secured first place in Group F. In the UEFA Nations League, they went even further immediately, not only topping Group 4 with a late surge of 11 points (three wins, two draws, and one defeat) but also beating Germany 6-0 in the deciding match. 

Sweden: Sweden and Spain have had the opportunity to be group mates again, having shared a group in the Euro 2020 qualifiers. With 21 points (six wins, three draws, and one loss), the Swedes finished second in Group F, five points behind the Spaniards and four points ahead of the third-place Norwegians. In addition to fighting in the final round of Euro 2020, they are also fighting in the European qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. In March, at the opening of the competition, the Swedes had a 100% record. They beat Georgia, 1-0, at home, and, as visitors, they thrashed Kosovo, 3-0.
