On Monday night, group B and C were decided and it was already clear that a particularly successful combination of results could take Sweden on to the European Championship finals. That was also the case.
The results that took Sweden on to the European Championship finals
The match between Ukraine and Austria, in group C, did not end in a draw because these nations, like Sweden, had landed on four points. When Austria won 1-0, it meant that Ukraine stays on a total of three points.
Thus, Sweden, regardless of the outcome of Wednesday’s match against Poland, can not end up after Ukraine in the battle to advance as one of the four best group threes.
Later in the evening, Group B was also decided. Russia met Denmark and Finland met Belgium.
The condition for Sweden to advance to the round of 16 was that neither Russia nor Finland would win their matches, which they did not. Denmark won 4-1 and Belgium 2-0.
Blue-yellow can still win the group
Even though the blue and yellow national team are already ready for the playoffs as one of the best group threes, they still have the chance to win their group if they manage to claim a win against Poland on Wednesday.
Such a group win would give Sweden easier resistance, and thus better conditions, in the round of 16.
