Previous Meetings between Spain and Sweden
The two nations have met 14 times in the past and Spain have come out victorious in six matches while the Swedes have won thrice while the other five games have ended in stalemates. The last match between the two European sides took place in 2019 and ended in a hard-fought 1-1 draw. Both the teams need to pull off similar feats at the Euros this week.
Spain vs Sweden Predictions
The Spanish side are under going a renovation of sorts and Luis Enrique has called up a number of young players to the EURO 2020 this year. They have also been troubled by Covid-19 in the build up to this game as Sergio Busquets tested positive and the whole team had to isolate themselves. Enrique will have to formulate a winning lineup for his side, which has plenty of potential but will need to conjure up results to prove their doubters wrong.
Sweden are without their talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic and have an uphill task of securing a first time qualification into the knockout stages of the European Championships. Their younger players in Kulusevski, Lindelof, Olsen and Isak are the key players to look out for in the Swedish side as they mount a challenge this summer. They are on a great winning run under their current manager Janne Andersson and have won their last 5 matches leading up to the EURO 2020.
Who will win Spain vs Sweden match
Spain will start favourites for this match, and we predict a win for the Spanish side in their first match of the Group in EURO 2020. The home support of the La Cartuja in Seville will also boost Spain’s confidence against a younger looking Sweden side. Luis Enrique is known to be a master tactician in the big games and should manage things better than his counterpart.
