Both teams had impressive starts to the tournament as Slovakia took all 3 points from Poland and Sweden held Spain to a point.
The last time the Swedes met Slovakia was in a friendly encounter in 2018 that ended in a 1-1 draw.
On Friday, though, there will be a lot at stake, as both teams push to enter the knockout stages.
This will be the sixth meeting between Sweden and Slovakia. The Swedes have never lost in their five previous encounters against the Sokoli, winning three of those (D2).
After just two wins in their eight games in 2020 (L6), Sweden has won five of their six matches in 2021, with their only failure coming their latest game against Spain (0-0).
Slovakia has lost just one of their last nine fixtures, winning and drawing four each.
