On Friday, June 18, Sweden will face Slovakia in their next Euro 2020 match. The match will take place in the Saint Petersburg Stadium in Russia, with a kickoff time of 6:30 p.m. IST. Let’s have a look at the Dream11 team for Sweden against Slovenia, as well as the top picks and other aspects of this match.
Sweden enters their second match in Group E full of confidence and in a strong position to qualify, thanks to a disciplined defensive effort in holding Spain to a goalless draw in their first match. Janne Andersson’s side were primarily on the defensive against La Roja, but they also posed a threat on the other end. Real Sociedad’s Alexander Isak hit the post and then found Marcus Berg, who squandered a great chance to win the game. Sweden, on the other hand, will be hoping for their first victory of the tournament on Friday.
Slovakia, meanwhile, won 2-1 against 10-man Poland in their tournament opener last week. Milan Skriniar, an Inter center-back, scored a historic goal for the Falcons with a superbly controlled 20-yard strike on the turn. With a win versus Sweden on Friday, Stefan Tarkovic’s team may advance to the next round.
Sweden Vs Slovakia Possible lineup
- Sweden XI: Olsen; Lustig, Lindelof, Danielson, Augustinsson; S. Larsson, Ekdal, Olsson, Forsberg; Isak, Berg.
- Slovakia XI: Dubravka; Pekarik, Satka, Skriniar, Hubocan; Kucka, Benes; Haraslin, Hamsik, Mak; Duda.

Sweden Vs Slovakia Prediction
Sweden was fortunate to draw with Spain in what was a conservative performance by the Scandinavians, but they had a couple of good chances to score and could have taken all three points. Slovakia benefited from Poland’s sending-off, and we expect Sweden to neutralize their attacks on Friday, with the Swedes pinching a goal to win the game.
