Switzerland vs Germany
UEFA Nations League
Date: Sunday, 6 September 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: St. Jakob-Park.
Die Mannschaft lost a great opportunity the last match-day, to potentially ensure their progression to the finals. They were leading 1-0 against Spain even into the injury time, before they conceded an agonizingly late equalizer.
It was definitely heartbreaking for the team, but it we know anything about Joachim Low’s men, it’s that they are built for moments like this. They are not going to give up, and whoever are supposed to take on them later, are in danger.
The Red Crosses are already on the back-foot after losing their opener. Moreover, they are not on the same level as that of their counterparts, the four-time world champions.
Considering the enormous talent Die Mannschaft have, their experienced and cunning manager, their determination to avenge the disastrous 2018 World Cup campaign, and the lopsided h2h history in their favor – expect a German win this Sunday.
Switzerland vs Germany: Head-to-head (h2h)
- In the past 100 years, only twice have Low’s men lost against this opponent.
- They have scored a total of 20 goals from the preceding seven games.
- The latest Swiss win had come in 2012, and before that in 1938.
- Not once have Vladimir Petkovic’s men kept a clean sheet at home.
Switzerland vs Germany: Prediction
The Red Crosses lost 2-1 on the road the last match-day against Ukraine. Scores were tied with just 22 minutes left on the clock, when Oleksandr Zinchenko slotted in the winner.
Meanwhile, Low’s men had to share the spoils against Spain, after they drew the game 1-1. The four-time world champions were leading 1-0 with just seconds left in the injury time. But they could not prevent Jose Gaye from scoring the equalizer.
Die Mannschaft missed out on two points in the opener, and that too against Spain (the only other team that could be considered to be on the same level), which potentially could have opened the path to the finals.
Low’s men will be determined and desperate because of this. Moreover, they were unbeaten in 12 of their previous 13 overall games, and this sole loss had come against Netherlands. In addition, they are also on a four-fixture winning run on the road.
On top of that, they also do have a great h2h record against this rival over the past century.
Meanwhile, the Red Crosses were winless in six of their past ten overall match-ups, and their sole wins in the last two years have come against Georgia, Gibraltar, and Ireland. In short, they failed to record a single win against a team that could be considered a worthy opponent.
By all means, expect the wounded Germany to post a convincing win this Sunday.
