Switzerland vs Spain
UEFA Nations League
Date: Saturday, 14 November 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: St. Jakob-Park.
One more loss and it would be all over for the Red Crosses. As of now they are placed dead last in the table in Group A4. They have posted just two points on the board from their total four fixtures, and understandably are still searching for their first win.
They are trailing by four points below the third-placed Ukraine, and with two match-days remaining, time is fast running out for the team to act.
Suffice it to say that they are under unimaginable pressure, and are forced to go after the three points this weekend.
However, they are taking on former world champions and current group toppers La Roja.
Luis Enrique’s men have a lead of one point over the second-placed Germany. They too are determined to go after the win, since the narrow lead over the Germans might not hold. La Roja need a ticket to the semi-finals at any cost.
Considering their impressive form, their good h2h record over the years, and their sheer desire to get back to the top of the football hierarchy, expect a Spanish win at the St. Jakob-Park.
Switzerland vs Spain: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two met, which was the reverse fixture of this encounter, Enrique’s men registered a 1-0 win.
- They had recorded four of the preceding five overall wins.
- In fact, in over the past six decades, they have lost just once.
- They have a 100% winning record in Swiss soil, and have scored four or more goals in all such games.
Switzerland vs Spain: Prediction
Vladimir Petkovic’s men were held to a 3-3 draw the last match-day on the road, by Germany. In the meantime, La Roja lost 1-0 on the road against Ukraine.
Going on, the Red Crosses are on a six-game winless run, and they had lost four of these match-ups. They had also conceded two or more goals in four of these fixtures. And at home, they are still searching for their first win in 2020.
On the other hand, the 2010 World champions have lost just one of their preceding seventeen match-ups, and they have lost just twice away from home in over 50 months.
In addition, Enrique’s men also have a great h2h record against this opponent, and they are currently ranked 6th in the world, while their counterparts are not even in the top-15 spots.
Likely, expect Spain to have a cracker of game this weekend.
