Spain have been undefeated in all their matches across all competitions, with three wins and two draw. Sweden, on the other hand, have won all of their recent matches. Let’s take an in-depth look into both teams.
Spain v Sweden Prediction - Preview
Spain will be looking to reclaim the UEFA EURO trophy, after having successively won it in 2008 and 2012. They are 6th in the FIFA world rankings at the moment. Managed by Luis Enrique, the team is loaded with players from Europe’s top 5 leagues, including Ferran Torres (Man City), Gerrard Moreno (Villarreal), César Azpilicueta (Chelsea) and recently-naturalised Aymeric Laporte (Man City). They qualified for EURO 2020 by winning 8 and drawing 2 of their 10 qualifiers. Their most recent match saw them defeat Lithuania, 4-0. Could the Furia Roja bring the same intensity in their match with the Swedes?
- Spain had more shots (227), possession (70%) and completed a greater percentage of their passes (91%) than any other team in qualifying.
- The Furia Roja’s overall record in Seville is W39 D5 L4.
Sweden are in their sixth successive EURO finals, and are looking to make it past the group stages for the first time since 2004. They are currently ranked 18th in the world by FIFA in their latest table. Managed by Janne Andersson, the Blågult is made up of noteworthy players like Alexander Isak (Real Sociedad), Victor Lindelöf (Manchester United) and Dejan Kulusevski (Juventus). They secured their place in the EURO by finishing as runner-up to Spain in their qualifying group, as runners-up to Spain in qualifying Group F, picking up 21 points from their ten matches (W6 D3 L1). They are coming into this match off of a friendly victory over Armenia (3-1). Will the Swedes be able to go toe-to-toe with their Spanish opponents?
- Sweden have beaten Spain only three times – and only once in Spain, a 3-1 friendly win in Salamanca in June 1988.
- The Blågult have played in Seville only once previously, losing 3-1 to Spain in a February 1968 friendly at the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.

Spain v Sweden Prediction - Final Thoughts
The Spanish side is hungry to bring back the EURO trophy to the motherland, and taking on lower-ranked Sweden is a good start to their campaign. The Blågult also want to prove that they can go far even without superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the lineup. However, with the recent individual success of each of Spain’s players, it is clear they will handily win this one. Let’s take a look at the prediction.
