Sweden vs Ukraine Betting Tips

Sweden are playing Ukraine in the Hampden Park in Glasgow, Scotland on the 30th of June 2021 at 00:30 IST. Sweden after that nerve-wracking win over Poland in the last game while Ukraine just about managing to qualify will be under some pressure coming into this game.

Sweden Form and Team News

Sweden have so far been the dark horses in the tournament so far with their performances, topping the group which involved giants Spain, Poland and Slovakia, Sweden have displayed immense determination and grit to secure seven points. They won an edge of seat thriller against Poland in the dying minutes of the game. Against Slovakia in the second game, Sweden had a penalty which was converted wholeheartedly and managed to keep that lead thus getting a much-needed win under their belt which had taken them to the top of the table. Lucky is one word which we can attribute to Sweden’s game against Spain earlier in the week before last week, Spain were relentless in the game and had over 80 percent possession, it’s not often that a team dominating as such doesn’t end up with goals at the end, but Sweden just managed to do that, they can call it a steal. They are facing Ukraine in the round of 16 for a place in the top eight. 

Coach Jan Anderson, the Swedish National Football team coach has been guiding the team quite well in the recent past and that is starting to reflect on the results column as well. After a four-match losing streak in the last ten matches, Jan managed to pull the team up and win all their last six of their last seven matches coming into the elite tournament. He will look at one game at a time and get the desired results with the team. The team collectively played as a unit managing to keep the line intact and in turn, win the last game. 

Ukraine Form and Team News

Ukraine even though for a loss in the last game against Austria have qualified as the third-placed team from the group. Ukraine won the second game against North Macedonia with a scoreline of two goals to one displaying a great deal of offensive play throughout the game. Ukraine in the first game against the mighty Netherlands were able to produce a good performance even though they ended up on the losing side. They were trailing by two goals at a point and brought the game back to a stalemate in the 79th minute with an equalizer and could’ve also won it from there if not for a late winner from Dumfries. Ukraine cannot afford to slip up anymore in the tournament considering they are playing the knockouts, one small miscalculation could prove costly and eventually end up being knocked out, so they got to be careful. 

Andriy Shevchenko, the Ukraine national football team coach has been so far spotting on with his defensive game where the team have defended brilliantly, but this has also in a sense affected the team as well, they have not been able to score many goals in the process as well. Andriy would need to rectify that aspect of the game as well which could prove vital in this tournament and they did that to a certain extent and return victorious against North Macedonia in the second game. Captain Yarmolenko and Yaremchuk netted goals for their side. Zinchonko was brilliant in the flanks, while the likes of Mykolenko and Zabarnyi did not have a good game.
