Olympique Lyonnais striker Lotta Schelin scored twice as host nation Sweden defeated Finland 5-0 in their second match of Euro 2013.

After their opening match 1-1 draw with Denmark, Sweden bounced back with a 5-0 drubbing neighbours Finland. It was one-way traffic for the home side and OL star striker Lotta Schelin helped herself to a double (60', 87') after her side was already three goals to the good thanks to a brace from Fischer (15', 36') and a goal to Asslani (38e). Sweden move to the top of the group alongside Italy who defeated Denmark 2-1 on Saturday afternoon.
