Following the massive victory against Ukraine as they played 4 goals without reply, La Roja is looking forward to stepping up their game as they host Switzerland on Saturday, 10th October 2020 in the UEFA Nations League.
The match which is to kick off immediately by 19:45 GMT at Alfredo di Stefano stadium in Spain, who is trending as the undisputed champion in their past 18 matches they played since Euro 2016, is ready to add to Switzerland to their victory list before traveling to lock horn with Ukraine on Tuesday, 13th October 2020.
Following the head-to-head statistics of the two teams since June 1925, when the two teams played an international friendly match, we can see that Spain has won 15 matches, drawn 4 and lost just a match to Switzerland in 20 matches. This gives the team the assurance of adding their opponent to their victory list.
When we take a brief look at the form of the two teams, we can also see that La Roja has 3 wins and 3 draws, while Rossocrociati on the other hand, has 3 wins, 1 draw, and 2 losses in their past matches. This is not looking too good for Switzerland.
Spain is currently trending in their group with 4 points which happened as a result of the 1-1 draw they played against the German Machine and the pain they inflicted on Ukraine as they hit them 4 goals without reply. The reverse is the case of Rossocrociati as they are at the bottom of the table with just a point from the draw they played against Germany.
Spain coach, Enrique is likely to change some players who played their last match against Portugal which ended in a draw. Players like David de Gea, Pau Torres, and Jesus Navas should be among the new change pattern.
The formation of players to tackle Switzerland should include Sergio Busquets and Rodri who will handle the Middlefield. Sergio Canales and Dani Ceballos might not be in play too, though, they were among the XI who battled with Portugal in the last match. In the absence of Fabian Ruiz due to health status, as he has been tested positive to Coronavirus, I think LA Roja is still ready to cruise the match against Switzerland.
Looking at Switzerland’s line-up, there is also a tendency for a slight change in the team that started the league against the German Machine as Renato Steffen and Breel Embolo might not participate against Spain. Xherdan Shaqiri’s name is among the 26-man squad announced for the UEFA Nations League by Vladimir Petkovic, but he might not be able to play due to the health as he just recovered from Coronavirus. Xhaka will also be off in the game due to the injury he sustained while training.
Looking at the way things are, we can see that Spain is most likely to add Switzerland to their unbeaten record with a count of 3-1 on Saturday as they look forward to including Ukraine on Tuesday.
We predict under 2.5 goals scored, and 1.36 odds for Spain to win, 9.7 odds for Switzerland to wins, and 4.98 for them to play draw.
