Sweden’s dramatic last-minute 3-2 win over Poland not only confirmed their qualification for the next round, but made them group winners ahead of group favorites Spain. This gave them what pundits who say is an ‘easy’ opponent in the round of 16 but they cannot afford to take anything for granted. Despite conceding 2 goals in their last group game, Sweden’s defense has been impressively solid. They have kept 6 clean sheets in their last 8 games in all competitions. Defensive discipline will be a big boost in this tricky fixture.
Ukraine finished 3rd in Group C after managing 1 win and 2 losses. This helped them to qualify as one of the best 3rd-placed teams, taking the last slot due to a slightly better goal difference.

Their two losses in the group were narrow by 1 goal each.
