Switzerland: In average shape (Recent Form: LDWWLW)
Switzerland are in average shape – 2 wins, 1 draw, 2 losses in last 5 matches across all competitions. They face England on Sunday in the UEFA Nations League fixture for the third place. “I think England will make some changes to their starting line-up. They have 22 players who are on an equal level. They’re very dangerous in the final third of the pitch. They’re very fast, very aggressive, but they also have moments where they are in trouble. We were able to cause England problems in our friendly match last year. If we want to win tomorrow we have to give 100%. We can’t only be very good, we need to be perfect,” said coach Vladimir Petković.
England: Doing well (Recent Form: DWWWWW)
England are getting good results, although they suffered from a defeat on Thursday against the Netherlands (1:3 after an extra-time). Now it’s time for a game against Switzerland. “No England international is a practice match – every time you wear the shirt it’s important for you, for the country, for the supporters. Individuals have opportunities to impress, to make sure their performances keep them involved. We want to finish the season on a good note with a healthy performance. They’re very strong at playing from the back, they’re a very settled team. They have key players who play in the system – Xhaka and Shaqiri, the whole team are comfortable with the ball. I like their patterns,” said coach Gareth Southgate. Rashford, Henderson and Chilwell are doubts.
THE BETTING VERDICT:
Summing up, it looks like this might be an interesting clash with a couple of goals. There is no pressure on both sides so perhaps this may be an open game.
