The two teams at the polar ends of the points table in Group 2 of League A in the ongoing edition of the Nations League are set to clash, as a battered Switzerland plays hosts to Portugal this Sunday.
After being held to a 1-1 draw by Spain in its first game of the competition, Portugal has registered successive victories in the next two matches, to claim the number 1 spot on the points table. The first of those wins came in the reverse fixture of this very encounter when the Selecaos mauled Switzerland 4-0 at the Estadio Jose Alvalade, which included a brace by star striker Cristiano Ronaldo.
The form spilled over in Portugal’s next fixture too, when it hosted the Czech Republic for a second consecutive home game. Joao Cancelo was once again among the goals for the home team and was followed up by a quick second strike by Goncalo Guedes. With that win, Portugal is now 2 points ahead of Spain and already has a foot in the Finals of the Nations League.
Switzerland started the competition as the underdogs of the group on most football betting sites and has performed poorly in all the 3 matches that it has played so far, dropping points in each of them. After losing 2 back to back away matches, Switzerland returned to its home turf to host Spain.
Pablo Sarabia scored the lone goal of the match, and handed the visitors their first win of the competition, much to the disappointment of the home crowd. Sitting at the bottom of the table with 0 points to show for its efforts, Switzerland trails the Czech Republic by 4 points and looks on track for a certain relegation for the next edition.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Switzerland vs Portugal Nations League 2022. The match is going to be played at Stade de la Praille, Geneva, on 12th June 2022.
The thumping defeat that Switzerland received last week against Portugal will definitely be on the minds of the players when they take on the field on Sunday. Ruben Vargas and Nico Elvedi are doubtful for this game, even as Fabian Schar makes a return from suspension to join Manuel Akanji to strengthen the defense.
As for the visitors, Matheus Nunes, Ricardo Horta, and Domingos Duarte, who were rested in the previous game, are likely to get some game-time on Sunday. Veteran Pepe, and Cristiano Ronaldo, who picked up a card in the match against the Czech Republic, may find themselves rested in this game, to pave way for Andre Silva in front, as well as David Carmo, who is likely to make his international debut.
Given the current form of the visitors, it shouldn’t be surprising to see them pick up 3 points from this game, and end the month on a winning note.
Bet on a Portugal win.
Only 1 of the last 6 head to head encounters between the two nations have seen goals scored on both sides. Portugal has conceded just once in the last 3 games, while Switzerland has scored just once in the same time. We, therefore, reckon that BTTS will be a losing bet here.
Each of the last 2 matches between the two teams has produced at least 4 goals in them. 3 of the last 6 games for Portugal and 4 of the last 6 outings for Switzerland too have produced a similar outcome, adding weight to our recommendation.
