Euro 2020: Sweden vs Poland Preview
Anything less than a win for Poland tonight will see them not qualify for the last 16 of Euro 2020, as they go up against already Qualified Sweden in St Petersburg at 5pm tonight.
A win for Sweden would guarantee that they top the group which would leave them with a last-16 tie in Glasgow. If they were to slip up however, Slovakia or Spain could overtake them at the top of Group E.
Isak was the star performer in Sweden’s 1-0 win over Slovakia last Friday and the young 21-year-old will be looking to replicate that performance against Poland this evening.
Sweden predicted XI: Olsen; Lustig, Lindelof, Danielson, Augustinsson; S. Larsson, Olsson, Ekdal, Forsberg; Isak, Berg
Slovakia predicted XI: Szczesny; Bereszynski, Bednarek, Glik; Jozwiak, Moder, Krychowiak, Zielinski, Puchacz; Swiderski, Lewandowski
