Switzerland vs Portugal
UEFA Nations League
Date: Sunday, 12 June 2022
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stade de Genève.
The Portuguese are gearing up for the upcoming World Cup and they are on the right course. Even though they had to go through the playoffs in order to secure a ticket to Qatar, they have found their form back it seems.
They have shot right to the top of the table and will be eager to hold on to this position. It will be a great boost to their confidence if they are able to secure the first position in a team that includes the likes of Spain and the Swiss.
So far they have scored the most number of goals in the group and have conceded the least as well.
Meanwhile Switzerland have been the worst team in the group and are deservingly placed bottom-most in the table.
They have a 100 percentage losing record so far and have conceded the most number of goals 2. It also needs to be mentioned that they have scored the least number of goals as well in the group.
Going on, they have a poor head-to-head record against this opponent over the years and a great example for this inferior h2h record was their loss in the reverse encounter of this upcoming fixture.
The 2016 European champions absolutely dominated the Swiss all through the 90 minutes and recorded a 4-0 win.
By the looks of things expect a win for Portugal this Sunday.
The Swiss are on a 4-game winless run, and 3 of these were loses. Do also note that they had conceded 2 or more goals in 3 of these fixtures too.
On the other hand, the Portuguese have lost just once since their defeat in the round of 16 of the Euro Cup against Belgium. They have really been finding the back of the net at a good rate, and their performances on the road have been impressive as well.
Furthermore, they have thoroughly dominated this rival in head-to-head clashes over the years as well.
Considering the observations, expect a win for Portugal this Sunday.
