Written by Abhishek Lohia

In the 21st edition of FIFA World Cup 2018, Today Mexico will face Sweden in Group-F knockout match. Both teams will face-off each other in the Ekaterinburg Arena. Sweden’s intention will be to enter in the round of 16 after a long interval of 12 years. Sweden’s win could open up a complicated Group F scenario. Sweden won by 1-0 in their first match against South Korea, while Germany defeated them 2-1 in the second group match. Germany got three points with Sweden, but they are in second place. Germany defeated Mexico 1-0 in the first match, while in the second match, they won 2-1 on Sweden. In this case, Sweden and Germany are aboard a single boat. The result of this game could be seen as a knockout match for the duo.

If both teams are equal on the points basis and goals after their last group matches, then the winner of the match between Germany and Sweden will take part in the final-16 round. Sweden will be out of the World Cup despite the best effort. Therefore, not only he has to score goals against Mexico in that match but also stops him to score a single goal.

Sweden’s defense was good in the last game against South Korea and they had also given a tough call to the current champion Germany in the second group match.

Mexico’s aim will be to beat Sweden in this match and stay on top with nine points at the league matches. Although he has already entered the final-16 round, but will not face any kind of negligence in the match against Sweden. Mexico has not lost a single match and it is clear that breaking its defense is not going to easy for Sweden.
