Sweden vs Ukraine predicted line-ups: Team news ahead of Euro 2020 fixture tonight

Sweden face Ukraine in the last 16 of Euro 2020 on Tuesday, with the final quarter-final place up for grabs.

Both these nations have arguably been more comfortable so far int he tournament when playing on the counter-attack, so the intrigue of the tactical battle comes with which nation makes the bold move to go on the offensive.

Sweden’s defence has been a big part of their success so far, while Alexander Isak has won admirers thanks to his industrious and energetic performances.

Ukraine have looked to front men Andriy Yarmolenko and Roman Yaremchuk in the search for goals, but they might need to be more steady defensively this time than they were in the group as they conceded five goals in three games.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the game.
