Sweden vs Germany Match Prediction
Germany are in a strong position in this series. They have a balanced unit and one would expect them to prove a bit too much for the Swedish side.
That said, with their backs against the wall, a special performance from Sweden could very much be on the cards. But overcoming the Germans could ultimately be a tall order for them.
Prediction: Germany to win the contest.
