Spain – Sweden
Spain take on Sweden in front of home fans at Estadio de La Cartuja in Sevilla in their EURO 2020 opener. La Roja have sights on nothing but the title. They surely are going after the top-most spot, and considering the wealth of talent they have at disposal, the Swedes stand not much chance. They had showed their class defeating 2014 World Champions Germany 6-0 in the just-concluded Nations League first round match-ups. They even showed their squad depth, when they defeated Lithuania 4-0 with their U-21 side just a week back.
Meanwhile, the Swedes are on a splendid run at the moment – but it needs to be noted that the streak of great performances have almost exclusively come against some of the weakest teams in the world. Against quality opponents, the team has really struggled.
Finally, they also have a poor h2h record against the Spaniards. All these point to the 2010 World Champions starting their campaign with a winning performance.
