SWE vs UKR Dream11: Sweden will be taking on Ukraine for the final game of the Round of 16 in the UEFA Euro 2020. Sweden occupied the top spot in their group as they drew to Spain 0-0, which was followed up by a 1-0 win against Slovakia as well as an nerve wracking 3-2 win over Poland.
As for Ukraine, they managed to win just one game in their group against North Macedonia, but still managed to make it through, due to goal difference. Nevertheless, they will have to be at their absolute best versus an in-form Swedish unit in order to advance into the quarter finals. That being said, we can expect the game to be an intriguing 90 odd minutes of football.
