Switzerland is all set to host the Spanish national team in the group stages of the ongoing edition of the Nations League, as it looks to avoid relegation into League B.
Switzerland has endured the worst possible start in its opening two fixtures and is staring down at a real threat of facing its first-ever League B relegation. The hosts faced the Czech Republic for its first match of the season, where an own goal by the midfielder Djibril Sow in the second half proved to be the decisive factor in what was a pretty evenly fought game.
However, the same cannot be said about Switzerland’s most recent match, when it traveled to Portugal and was thumped 4-0 by the hosts. A brace by Cristiano Ronaldo and goals by William Carvalho and Joao Cancelo found no answers, and the visitors faced their second consecutive defeat. They now have 0 points against their name, and trail third-placed Spain by 2 points in the Group 2 standings.
Spain, ranked 7th in the most recent FIFA rankings, has not been able to stamp its authority in the ongoing Nations League, thanks to two pretty mediocre outings so far. In its first match, where they faced an in-form Portugal, Spain enjoyed a 1 goal lead over the visitors till the final third of the match. However, an equalizer by Ricardo Horta in the 82nd minute denied the hosts 3 important points.
Spanish fans will be even more disappointed with their team’s latest effort against the 33rd-ranked Czech Republic. Spain started the match as firm favorite for most football betting sites. While Gavi became the youngest international scorer for Spain at 17 years of age, Jan Kuchta and Jakub Pesek scored on either side of his effort, to hand the home team a real chance of victory. However, Inigo Martinez scored in the final minute of the match and saved Spain from the humiliation of an unexpected loss.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Switzerland vs Spain Nations League 2022. The match is going to be played at Stade de la Praille, Geneva, on 9th June 2022.
After a disappointing start to his campaign, Swiss coach Murat Yakin is expected to majorly rejig his playing eleven for this game. Yann Sommer is likely to be back between the sticks instead of Kobel, while Jordon Lotomba and Haris Seferovic are likely to be benched. Kevin Mbabu too could be left out. Fabian Schar picked up cards in both the inaugural games and will be serving a suspension.
Luis Enrique has said that Barcelona forward Ansu Fati is likely to sit out for a month as he struggles with injuries. Rodri who is on caution is likely to pave way for Sergio Busquets. Jordi Alba, Ferran Torres, Alvaro Morata, and Pau Torres are likely to make a return in this game.
Given the upper hand that the visitors have enjoyed over their hosts, as well as Switzerland’s recent form, Spain should have no problem in collecting 3 points from this match.
Bet on Spain to win.
3 of the last 4 matches for Spain and 4 of the last 6 matches for Switzerland have produced goals on both sides of the field. Also. 3 of the last 4 head to head games have seen both teams score, and we expect more of the same in this match too.
4 of the last 5 matches for Switzerland and 3 of the last 4 matches for Spain have each produced at least 3 goals. We are therefore expecting another goal fest on Thursday.
