Sweden have been able to capitalise on Spain’s underwhelming start to this summer’s European Championship. The Swede’s started the tournament with a draw against Luis Enrique’s side and followed that up with a narrow victory against Slovakia after Emil Forsberg’s penalty proved to be the difference.
Poland will have been left frustrated by their defeat in their opening game against Slovakia having then followed that up with an impressive draw against Spain. The Poles are still well within a chance of qualifying for the knockout stages but absolutely have to seal all three points to be within a chance of extending their stay in the competition.
The winners of Group E will play one of the third-placed sides from either Group A/B/C/D. The runner up will face the runner up of Group D which will be one of either England, Czech Republic, Croatia or Scotland. All Sweden require is a point from this game to ensure their name is still in the competition but they will have their eyes on topping the group.

Sweden vs Poland: Match Stats
Alexander Isak has made an impressive start to this summer’s tournament. He is still to get his name on the scoresheet, however, he will be hoping to draw inspiration from his 2020/21 La Liga form which saw the 21-year-old net 17 goals in the Spanish top flight for Real Sociedad.
Sweden remains the only side in Group E to have still not conceded a goal. In comparison, Paulo Sousa’s men have conceded the most goals out of all the teams in Group E (three). With a chance to secure the top spot in the group, we expect Janne Andersson’s men to prove resolute with their eyes on the prize of a spot in the final 16 of the competition.
Sweden vs Poland: Corner Stats
Sweden were only able to win one corner in their game against Spain on their opening clash of the tournament. However, it was a totally different story in their game against Slovakia which saw Janne Andersson’s men rack up a total of seven corners across the 90 minutes.
Sweden vs Poland: Cards Stats
There have only been two red cards in the tournament so far and one of them was handed to Poland’s Grzegorz Krychowiak in their 2-1 defeat against Slovakia. And in their second game against Spain, Paulo Sousa’s side were awarded a stunning four yellow cards.

Recent meetings between these two nations are hard to come by with their last clash coming 17 years ago in 2004. However, it is a fixture which Poland have not faired well in at all. In the last 11 meetings, Poland have only avoided defeat twice with one win and one draw to their name.
