Sweden – Poland Match Preview
- Already assured of at least a top-three finish, Sweden (W1, D1) have an opportunity to go undefeated in the group stage of a European Championships for the first time since 2004 – also the last time they topped their group. Coincidentally, their last meeting with opponents Poland was their final leadup game to Euro 2004, and was one of three H2H victories by a 2+ goal margin across a 12-month period.
- Having entered the tournament with five consecutive victories, including four wins ‘to nil’, Sweden have continued that form by adding another two tournament clean sheets, and now haven’t conceded more than one goal in any of their last six Euro fixtures. In all competitions, the Swedes have kept a clean sheet at HT in their last seven outings (HT: W5, D2) – a number which improves further to 13 when excluding better ranked nations.
- That stands in stark contrast with opponents Poland who have kept just one clean sheet across their last nine matches (W1, D4, L4) – and that came vs #158 ranked nation Andorra. In five of the remaining eight matches during that period, Poland conceded goals in both halves. Despite their ongoing defensive woes, Paulo Sousa’s men have suffered just one loss by a 2+ goal margin since 2020.
- Failure to win here would see them exit the group stage of a European Championship without a victory for the third time in four attempts. However with five straight Poland games witnessing both teams score, this game promises entertainment, and perhaps Saturday’s impressive draw with Spain might act as a timely confidence boost.
- Players to watch: After his match winner against Slovakia, Emil Forsberg has opened the scoring in two of Sweden’s last three games. Poland’s Robert Lewandowski has now recorded his team’s first or last goal in five of his previous seven appearances for club or country.
- Hot streak: Both teams have played exactly 14 fixtures each since their last 1-0 defeats.
