Match stats for the UEFA Women's EURO 2017 as Group B clash between Germany vs Sweden at Rat Verlegh Stadion - Breda on Tuesday.

Women's EURO 2017: Germany vs Sweden

Women's EURO 2017: Germany vs Sweden

Breda hosts the latest chapter in one of women's international football's biggest rivalries, one that has even taken in a

FIFA Women's World Cup final, Germany winning 2-1 in 2003 with a golden goal.

They have also met in two UEFA Women's EURO finals. The first came in 1995 when Germany triumphed 3-2 in

Kaiserslautern against a Sweden side containing Pia Sundhage.

Six years later Steffi Jones was in the Germany team in Ulm that won 1-0. The Germans had already beaten Sweden

3-1 in the group stage.

Germany won both European finals on home soil, and also prevailed in both of the countries' last-four meetings in

Sweden – by 1-0 scorelines in 1997 and 2013.

Dzsenifer Marozsán was the Germany goalscorer four years ago in Gothenburg.

Overall in competitive games Germany have 11 victories out of 11 against Sweden, most recently winning 2-1 in the

2016 Olympic final in Rio de Janeiro with Marozsán again striking along with a Linda Sembrant own goal before Stina

Blacksteinus pulled one back.

In all matches including friendlies, Germany have 19 wins to Sweden's seven with no draws; they lead 50-32 on goals.

Marozsán plays alongside Sweden's Caroline Seger at Lyon.

Sweden's Fridolina Rolfö is a Bayern München colleague of Leonie Maier, Sara Däbritz and Kristian Demann.

Nilla Fischer shares a dressing room with Laura Benkarth, Almuth Schult, Babett Peter, Anna Blässe and Isabel

Kerschowski at Wolfsburg. Anja Mittag was also at the club until recently.

EURO 2013: Winners

EURO best: Winners (1989, 1991, 1995, 1997, 2001, 2005, 2009, 2013)

How they qualified: Group 5 winners, W8 D0 L0 F35 A0 Pts24

Coach: Steffi Jones

One to watch: Anja Mittag (forward, Wolfsburg)

What to watch out for: Germany's reign as European champions now stands at over two decades and they are on to

their fourth coach in that time: the late Gero Bisanz handing over to Tina Theune, herself succeeded by Silvia Neid,

who stepped down in favour of Jones after leading German to their first Olympic gold in Brazil this August.

Jones's appointment had been announced well in advance and the former defender had been added to the coaching

team, ensuring a smooth succession which is matched on the pitch. Even as the likes of Nadine Angerer, Saskia

Bartusiak, Nadine Kessler and Célia Šašic retire, the production line guarantees Germany's machine rolls on, currently on a run of eight straight victories. The team to beat, still.

EURO 2013: Semi-finals

EURO best: Winners (1984)

How they qualified: Group 4 winners, W7 D0 L1 F22 A3 Pts2

Coach: Pia Sundhage

One to watch: Lotta Schelin (forward, Rosengård)

What to watch out for: The Swedes are often polar opposites to Norway, tipped heavily before a tournament only to

fall short (hence surprise losses to their neighbours in the 2005 semis and 2009 quarters). But following a 2011 World

Cup bronze, they have found a new toughness since Sundhage returned from the United States to take charge prior

to the 2013 finals on home soil.

Only an epic 1-0 semi-final defeat by Germany denied them a dream decider against Norway, and Sweden took a

further step forward when they ground down both the US and Brazil to make the 2016 Olympic final. Though Germany

took gold, Sweden had shown their ability to steer a knockout course, though losing their last qualifier in Denmark cost them top seeding in the EURO draw.
