If you’re searching for entertainment and excitement this summer, then it’s probably best to avoid watching Sweden games. Janne Andersson’s side are extremely effective and they rarely deviate from their rigid 4-4-2 system. However, they aren’t one for the neutrals and their games have contained just a single goal so far.
Although their attacking players have looked a little frustrated at times, the Swedes are yet to concede a goal and they restricted Slovakia to just ten shots (0 on target). Poland were much improved against Spain, and although they enjoyed just 23% possession, they were reasonably effective in the final third.
They produced an xG of 1.32 and hit the woodwork twice. Their chance creation was much improved, however, they may find it tougher to find space in and around this Swedish defence.
There won’t be much between these sides, and although Poland’s need for points is far greater, Sweden will be an extremely tough nut to crack.
