in sheet1!B2, use

=index(Sheet2!$A$1:$A$1000,match($B2,Sheet2!$B$1:$B$1000,0))

You're returning the value of Sheet2!$A$1:$A$1000 found at the position where Sheet2!$B$1:$B$1000 matches Sheet1!B2.

or by individual cell copied down the column as required;

=IF(B1=Sheet2!B1,Sheet2!A1,"")

=iferror(index(Sheet2!$A$1:$A$1000,match($B2,Sheet2!$B$1:$B$1000,0)),"")
