We will also bring you details of where to watch Sweden vs Slovakia and where to bet on Sweden vs Slovakia, so let's get started.
The Scandinavians are the Sweden vs Slovakia favourite with the bookies and you can back them at a tempting price to win the match. They are leading the way in many predictions for Slovakia vs Sweden due to the fact they automatically qualified for the tournament by finishing second in their group. Sweden faced a difficult qualifying campaign with Spain, Norway, and Romania competing with them for the two automatic qualifying positions.
For us, it makes no difference if they have that many passes, if they have the ball outside us and can't find a way in, it makes no difference. In football, it's about scoring goals, so for me there's no problem. I think they got a bit frustrated. They had a lot of the ball and some high pressing at times, but we managed to defend well and clear the ball on many occasions. - Victor Lindelof after the 0-0 draw against Spain, BBC
Sweden lost only one of their ten qualifying fixtures, which shows how difficult they are to beat. The defeat came away from home in Spain and the Swedes came close to reversing that outcome at home but conceded a last minute goal to draw the match. And in the first round of this year's tournament Sweden managed to grab a very valuable point after the 0-0 draw against Spain.
The betting odds for Slovakia vs Sweden may favour the latter but it is worth pointing out they failed to get out of their group at the 2016 European Championship and only once in their last five appearances at the tournament have Sweden qualified for the knockout stages.
We continue our Slovakia vs Sweden match preview by taking a closer look at the outsiders. Despite being the Slovakia vs Sweden outsider, the Slovaks will take comfort from the fact they know what it takes to qualify for the knockout stages of this competition, having done so in 2016. They also achieved a very important win against Poland in their first match during Euro 2020 / 2021, which gives them an opportunity to reach the knockout stages.
Slovakia failed to qualify for this tournament through the regular qualifying process as they finished third in Group E. However, they were just one point behind second place Wales and 4 points adrift of group winners, Croatia, so there was not a great deal between the teams. Slovakia went into the play offs due to their position in the Nations League and overcome two difficult opponents in Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland to qualify for Euro 2020.
When making a Sweden vs Slovakia prediction, we cannot afford to underestimate the outsiders. They defeated Russia and held England to a draw in the 2016 European Championship so the odds of for this match to end in a draw is tempting.

3. Other Bets for Slovakia vs Sweden
Slovakia's main difficulty in terms of winning this game will be scoring and they managed only 13 goals during qualifying. Even in the Nations League play offs, Slovakia struggled to score goals despite coming through, netting twice across the two games. Therefore, if Sweden are to come out on top in this fixture, it would not be a surprise to see them without conceding a goal and you can back that outcome with every bookie.
