In the loss to Spain, Sweden had been completely away from the semi-finals in the handball World Cup. Now you have to score two points on Spain in two matches. In addition, score 16 goals in goal difference if you end up with the same score.
Sweden's chance is to defeat both Romania and Montenegro. And hope that Japan, which cannot reach the semi, can surprise and score against Spain.
In addition, the table Russia must defeat Spain. A grand victory could help Sweden in the battle for the second semi-final place.
