Hello and welcome to our coverage of Sweden v Switzerland in the second round of Group C matches, the closest of all the groups in the competition.

It’s all square with each team having one point as the two opening group games both ended in a draw. The only thing separating them is goal difference with Portugal and Switzerland the top two sides after their match ended 2-2. This means this second round is crucial in helping decide who will qualify for the quarter-finals. Whoever wins Sweden v Switzerland will rocket to the top of the table for a potentially short time as Portugal and the Netherlands face off at 8pm BST.

Sweden believe they have improved since their 1-1 draw with the Netherlands as Sweden head coach Peter Gerhardsson told UEFA: “Training has been a bit better quality than before the Netherlands game. I hope that tomorrow we can show to ourselves that we have grown into this tournament in a good way.

“Against the Netherlands we were a little bit slow in terms of decision-making; we need to be quicker at taking the ball forward.”

And Switzerland are aware they are heading into the match as slight underdogs with manager Nils Nielsen adding: “Sweden such a good team in every way that you only have one chance to beat them and that is to go all in on it, regardless of which players you have on the pitch.

“We have to go all in and really try to see if we can surprise them somehow, if we can get a goal. For that to happen, we need to be aggressive and get up there near their goal, otherwise it will never happen.”

It will be a tight match and the action will get underway at 5pm BST.
