Sweden vs. Slovakia
Saint Petersburg Stadium | St. Petersburg, Russia | 9am ET
The Pick: Sweden -120
In a tournament that’s been mostly chalk so far, the biggest Matchday 1 surprises of these Euros were authored by the two teams ready to kick off Friday’s slate.
Despite ceding 75% of the possession, absorbing an eye-watering 80 attacks, and failing to register a single shot on target, Sweden ultimately kept two-time European champions Spain at bay to record a 0-0 draw in Seville on Monday.
Earlier that day in St. Petersburg, Slovakia were outshot and out-possessed by a Poland side playing with 10 men for the match’s final half hour, but the Sokoli cashed in on the only two shots on goal they registered to score a vital 2-1 upset.
