Switzerland vs Ukraine
UEFA Nations League
Date: Tuesday, 17 November 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Swisspor Arena, Luzern.
Situation in UEFA Nations League A Group 4 is pretty much clear going into the last set of matches. Germany and Spain are battling for top position, while Switzerland are hoping to beat Ukraine in Luzern and avoid relegation to tier two.
The Swiss side had a couple great performances this season, winning total of two points against the Panzers from two games.
Anything but a victory on Tuesday night would seal their fate among the elite. Ukraine have been in really bad shape lately, having lost four out of last five encounters across competitions. They are big underdogs going into this clash, currently being priced at 4.75 odds for the win.
Switzerland vs Ukraine Head-to-head
The most important head to head match these two teams played was in 2006 World Cup playoffs. Ukrainians advanced to quarter-finals after penalty shootout.
Besides that, there was one friendly duel played in 2010, ending in a 2-2 draw.
Ukraine managed to beat the Swiss in the first UEFA Nations League meeting in early September 2-1. The winning goal was scored by Oleksandr Zinchenko in the second half.
Switzerland vs Ukraine Prediction
Switzerland have solid results under the leadership of Bosnian coach Vladimir Petkovic. Despite a couple of losses in friendly duels against top tier teams, it is obvious team is playing much better in comparison to 2019.
They are no longer strictly oriented towards defense and keeping a clean sheet, but rather being more aggressive, especially at home.
Seven out of last eight Switzerland’s matches across competitions ended with BTTS. Both Haris Seferovic and Mario Gavranovic are playing in red-hot form in their clubs and will surely represent a massive threat for Ukrainian defenders.
The Yellow and Blues are having a lot of troubles with covid19 infected players, so they won’t be able to compete at highest level possible on Tuesday night. They were defeated in the most recent appearance in Germany 1-3 FT. We expect them to go down in Luzern as well. Also, goals should be seen in this encounter considering all recent stats.
