Group F matches in the 2018 FIFA World Cup will see its end with Mexico taking on Sweden at the Central Stadium in Yekaterinburg on 27th June. It won’t be wrong to term this a straight play-off for the second place finish in Group F. In a battle of equals, both Mexico and Sweden will look to pip each other to accompany Germany from Group F in the round of 16. While Mexico will be relying on their pro campaigners, Sweden will look up to their youngsters as they’ll be playing in the World Cup without Zlatan Ibrahimovich after quite a long time. Despite the retirement of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Sweden have had an astonishing qualification behind them. Mexico, on the other hand, has had a topsy-turvy form all throughout the qualifying campaign. A defeat for either side will signal the end of their journey in the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Come 27th June and football fans from Mexico and Sweden will have their hands raised to pray for their team.

The final game of Group F in 2018 FIFA World Cup will see Mexico locking horns with Sweden at the Central Stadium in Yekaterinburg on 27th June 2018 with action scheduled to kick-off from 19:00 local time. The venue is scheduled to host only four group stage matches, the last of which will be Mexico vs Sweden. The stadium is one of the smaller stadiums being used for the 2018 FIFA World Cup with a seating capacity of just over 35,000.
While Mexico will be pinning their hopes on the likes of senior players Xavier Hernandez and Giovani Dos Santos, Sweden will be looking up to their youngsters like Victor Lindellof and Ludwig Augustinsson. Sweden does hold the edge slightly owing to their superior defence that has managed clean sheets now and then. Mexico’s defence too has looked solid but has shown signs of vulnerability that might prove to be costly for them. Here are the most likely 22 names you may get to see come 27th June.
Ochoa (GK); Moreno, Layun, Reyes, Ayala; Guardado, Fabian, Molina; Jimenez, Hernandez, Vela
Olsen (GK); Lindelof, Granqvist, Olsson, Lustig; Larsson, Forsberg, Hiljemark; Berg, Toivonen, Nyman

Unlike most of the American countries, the match will be broadcasted in Mexico via Televisa and TV Azteca. In Sweden, the match will be available live on SVT and TV4. With both the Group F matches scheduled to kick-off simultaneously, the exact channel of broadcast on other broadcasters is yet to be determined. While a few might telecast Germany vs South Korea on their primary channel due to the defending champions being in action, a few others might opt for this match owing to the high stakes of it.
The official broadcasters list for this match remains to be FOX Sports in America, BBC and ITV in the UK, beIN Sports in Middle East and North Africa, DirecTV in the Caribbean countries, Sky Pacific in the Oceanic nations, Sony ESPN in the Asian Subcontinent, and Kwese Sports, Canal+, and SuperSport in the Sub-Saharan Africa. The broadcast will likely start two hours before the kick-off with a full-fledged preview show that will have an in-depth analysis of the game from a panel of football pundits.
A lot will depend on where the two sides stand in the points table before coming into this match. While Sweden looks to be the most likely name that could accompany Germany in the round of 16 from Group F, Mexico look to be the most likely ones to stop them. It will all come down to the better side wins once the ball starts rolling as both sides look equal in every aspect. Odds too do not separate the two sides as a draw is all what they expect. Our final scoreline prediction too calls it Mexico 2-2 Sweden.
