Sweden vs Slovakia Predictions 


Sweden haven’t shown a single weakness so far, topping the group with six straight wins. Slovakia are inconsistent, so I am backing the Swedes to claim another victory. 
  • Sweden vs Slovakia Predictions 
  • Head to Head 
  • Sweden Form 
  • Slovakia Form 

  • Sweden have won 8 of their last 9 matches. 
  • Slovakia have lost 7 of their last 8 matches against Sweden. 

Head to Head 


Sweden have a 10-6 advantage against Slovakia with 1 draw in 17 matches. 

They last met in February 2022, the game being won by Slovakia 4-0. 

Sweden Form 


Sweden had a great start to the World Cup 2024, beating USA 5-2 in the opening round, Joel Eriksson being the man of the match with two goals and one assist.     

They earned slightly more convincing victory in the second round against underdog Poland 5-1, Erik Karlsson ending the match with three points.    

Another great performance was seen in the third match against Germany, earning a convincing 6-1 victory, Andre Burakovsky ending the match with three points (one goal and two assists).    

Sweden made it six wins in a row by defeating Kazakhstan 3-1, Latvia 7-2 and most recently France 3-1, topping the group with maximum number of points. 

Slovakia Form 


Even though they opened the tournament with a disappointing 6-4 defeat to Germany, Slovakia qualified for the quarterfinals after one hell of a series.   

After the mentioned loss, they defeated Kazakhstan 6-2 in the second round, Libor Hudacek being the man of the match with one goal and two assists.    

The best performances so far were seen in the last two rounds, causing an upset against the USA 5-4 and cruising past Poland 4-0.  

Last weekend, they were victorious against France 4-2, Libor Hudacek being the man of the match with two goals and one assist. The follow up clash against Latvia ended with a surprising 4-3 defeat in overtime. 

Verdict

Sweden’s performances have been impeccable so far. I will back them to wrap up the group stage with maximum number of points.
