and Sweden are going to face each other in a very important Group D match tomorrow (18 June 2008) at EM Stadion Wals-Siezenheim, Salzburg in Austria. The match is very important for both the sides as both sides are still active in the quarter final race with Spain already through to the quarter final as the group champion. Russia and Sweden have equal 3 points each, but Sweden is ahead with better goal difference. So, even a draw would see Sweden through to the last eight of the tournament, while Russia has to win over Sweden to enter into the quarter final.

Match: Russia vs Sweden, Group D

Date: 18 June 2008

Venue: EM Stadion Wals-Siezenheim, Salzburg in Austria

Russia started the tournament with a 1-4 defeat to Spain and then in the second match they got over against defending champion Greece by winning 1-0. However, they now have to win the match if they really want to impress the football world once again after they eliminated England from the qualifying round of the tournament.

Sweden started with a victory over Greece 2-0 in the first match, but lost to Spain in the second match 1-2. So, they now need a draw against Russia to make it to the last eight. However, Guss Hiddink’s Russia has already earned reputation as a fighting team and it is expected that it would not be easy for Sweden to take a needed point from the match.

Russia vs Sweden: Head to Head

Russia/ USSR and Sweden met on 12 occasions, with Sweden winning five games along with four draws. Russia/ USSR won three games. However, in the recent match between the two sides was ended in 1-1 draw. However, ahead of another encounter, previous performance of the two sides may not help Russia and Sweden ahead of tomorrow’s crucial match.

Injury Worry for Both Teams

Ahead of the match, both teams are now worried about some of their inured players. Sweden’s ace striker Zlatan Ibrahimović is doubtful for the match as he is yet to recover from injury. For Russia, forward Andrei Arshavin is doubtful though he might come back in action from suspension. You know that injury has been common a thing in the Russian midfield.

Reuters reported:

"There is a lack of game fitness, game rhythm, because he has not played many games recently," coach Guus Hiddink told a news conference on Tuesday. "I don't know if he will start."

While Guss Hiddink clearly said that Sweden is the favorite for this match, his counterpart Lars Lagerback, Coach of Sweden, thinks that both sides have 50-50 chance in the match indicating the significance of the match.

Canadian Press reported:

"This is a decisive game and I don't see that we're the obvious favourite," Sweden coach Lars Lagerback said. "I think we have two relatively even teams with a little bit different styles of play.

"I think it's 50-50 from the get-go. Then we hope that our stronger qualities tip the balance in our favour. But I don't see us a big favourite."

If you can not manage your time to watch the match in television then you can visit the live score websites to know that updated score of the match. Here, I am giving some of the links of those websites:
