EURO 2020 Round of 16: Sweden vs Ukraine Prediction

Sweden vs Ukraine Euro 2020 Prediction

The Ukrainian and Swedish national teams will face each other in the last 16 of Euro 2020 at Hampden Park, Glasgow, Wednesday (30/6/2021) midnight Indian time. Facing Sweden, the coach of Ukraine, Andriy Shevchenko has fond memories.

The Swedish national team strolled into the knock-out phase as winners of Group E Euro 2020. They managed to draw 0-0 against Spain, win 1-0 over Slovakia, and win 3-2 over Poland.

Meanwhile, the Ukrainian national team lost 2-3 to the Netherlands, won 2-1 over debutants North Macedonia, and lost 0-1 to Austria in Group C. Andriy Shevchenko's men finished behind the Netherlands and Austria, and qualified as one of four the best three.

There were two names that stood out the most from Ukraine in the group stage, namely Andriy Yarmolenko and Roman Yaremchuk. They scored two goals each or all of Ukraine's goals in that phase.

Sweden and Ukraine last met in the group stage of Euro 2012, and it is a sweet memory for Andriy Shevchenko. At that time, Sweden had taken the lead through Zlatan Ibrahimovic's goal in the 52nd minute, but Ukraine turned to win 2-1 through a pair of Shevchenko goals in the 55th and 61st minutes.

This time, if you look at the performance of each team, Sweden seems to deserve to be favorites. Being a champion in the group Spain and Poland is definitely not an arbitrary achievement.

Two of the three representatives of Group C have run aground in the last 16 of Euro 2020. Austria was beaten by Italy 1-2 in extra time, while the Netherlands was beaten by the Czech Republic 0-2. Will the Ukrainian national team overtake them?
