Germany vs Sweden
Germany: The Germans are the main team has hasn’t surrendered an goal in this competition. Truth be told, when considering the team last amicable, before the cup, it’s been five recreations without getting goal and 471 minutes, returning to April 9 against Japan. With Sweden scoring one goal in its last two games, Germany needs to like one more cleansheet.
Sweden: The last third play needs to improve. Five shots on goal in the last two amusements just won’t cut it. Against a German team that holds its shape well, Sweden is going to need to discover another approach to make. Getting behind them with long balls is tricky, as is beating them on set pieces. Expect Sweden to play more compact and try to work quick passes into space to take their shots.
While Sweden have the potential to take the game to extra-time, it’s difficult to see a past a win for Germany, who should edge past their opponents. Germany 2-1 Sweden.
