Sweden v Slovakia team news

Sweden: Janne Andersson is likely to stick with the 4-4-2 formation that held Spain to a draw in their opening match.

Alexander Isak and Marcus Berg both led the line up top and the latter will hope he won't be rueing any missed chances this time around.

Slovakia: Striker Ivan Schranz missed Slovakia's opener with a thigh injury and it remains to be seen if he's fit for Sweden.

Stefan Tarkovic used all five substitutes against Poland, suggesting he's open to making changes to his starting XI for this one if those that came on impressed.

Our prediction: Sweden v Slovakia

Sweden striker Berg suffered online abuse following an easy chance he missed against Spain and he'll be keen to silence his critics this time around alongside the exciting young talent of Isak.

Slovakia's win over Poland was unexpected, as was Sweden's draw with Spain, but you have to fancy the Swedes to build on that opening draw with maximum points here.

Sweden had just 14 per cent possession against Spain and, with a lot more expected against Slovakia, they should create plenty of chances.

Our prediction: Sweden 2-1 Slovakia (9/1 at bet365)
