Our prediction for this Euro 2024 match:
After securing their spot at the 2024 Euro finals, Belgium will look to clinch top position in Group F when they take on Sweden at King Baudouin Stadium on Monday. The Red Devils proved their worth in a 3-2 win over Austria on Friday and they are now on a quest to put icing on the cake. Even though all Thibaut Courtois, Kevin De Bruyne, and Leandro Trossard are sidelined with injuries, home win should be considered as Sweden have slim qualification chances.
Everton midfielder Amadou Onana misses out through suspension. The Swedes, on the other hand, are seven points behind top two in the standings and given their difficulties at the back, we are tempted to put our money on the Group F leaders. To make things even worse for the away team, Newcastle United striker Alexander Isak has been ruled out with injury.
Highlighted Player (Romelu Lukaku):
Romelu Lukaku Bolingoli, born on 13th of ay 1993 is a Belgian player with roots form Congo. Lukaku played for several youth teams before he got picked up by RSC Anderlecht. After playing for only 2 seasons for Anderlecht Chelsea picked him up for around12 million euro.

The biggest achievement of Lukakui is winning the Eerste klasse in Belgium and the English FA Cup. With his strength and goal scoring abilities Lukaku can be considered as one of the deadliest strikers of the world. Nicknames for Lukaku are Big Rom and the Tank.
Highlighted Team (Sweden):
Sweden are the most successful Nordic side on international stage having been present at major competitions since 1934. Blagult missed out on the 1952 World Cup trophy on home soil as they were beaten by star-studded Brazil side, while they finished in third place at the 1950 and 1994 tournaments, and finishing fourth on their second appearance in 1938.
As far as their European Championship record is concerned, Sweden also achieved their best result in front of home fans, reaching the last four in 1992, and they have since reached the quarter-finals at Euro 1994 in Portugal.
Anders Svensson and Thomas Ravelli are team’s most capped players with over 140 appearances each, but it is strikers Henrik Larsson and Zlatan Ibrahimovic that will go down as the most famous Swedish footballers in history. The later also leads the goalscoring charts with over 60 strikes for the national team and he is widely regarded as one of the most colourful characters, not only in Scandinavia, but in world football.
