After storming to victory against Mexico in their final group match, Group F winners Sweden take on Group E runners-up Switzerland in the last 16 of the 2018 World Cup.

footballexpert.com verdict: Both Sweden and Switzerland needed a play-off to reach the World Cup, but both have already enjoyed some impressive results in Russia – the former beating Mexico 3-0 to top Group F and the latter drawing with Brazil on their way to second place in Group E. Switzerland’s good recent form makes them slight favourites but the Swedish defence will be hard to break down – this could go all the way to penalties.
