Switzerland vs Belgium
UEFA Nations League
Date: Sunday, 18 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: swissporarena (Luzern).
Switzerland host Belgium in the last game of the UEFA Nations League campaign in Group 2 on Sunday evening at swissporarena. The Red Devils have a pole position thanks to a 2-1 victory when these two likes met each other a month ago in Bruxelles, but they can’t afford a defeat here as La Nati saw off Iceland on both occasions as well.
The team led by Vladimir Petkovic actually offered quite a strong resistance when they played Belgium a month ago. They had a 1-1 draw all up until six minutes from time when Romelu Lukaku completed his brace to set the final score 2-1 for Belgium.
La Nati managed to rebound from such defeat by beating Iceland 1-2 four days later. Haris Seferovic and Michael Lang were on the scoreline on the occasion.
Switzerland vs Belgium: Head-to-head
Belgium only lead the head to head tie by a single win coming into their 9th meeting with the Swiss national side.
However, the Red Devils did dominate this match-up in the most recent history winning three and drawing one of past four encounters against La Nati.
Both teams found the back of the net in four of past five head to head affairs.
Switzerland vs Belgium: Prediction
Switzerland slipped up on Wednesday night when they fell 0-1 to Qatar in a friendly. We have to mention Vladimir Petkovic rested his main stars for this crucial Nations League tie though. Belgium will come into this in much higher spirits if we take a look at their recent results.
The Red Devils won four and drew one of past five matches conceding just two goals in the process. They were very tough to break down of late allowing just two goals in these five outings. Kevin De Bruyne and Marouane Fellaini are only two unavailable players for Roberto Martinez here.
The quality is on the Belgian side, but Switzerland are very hard to beat on their soil. We do expect a very tight affair with the draw as the most likable of three outcomes.
