Switzerland sit fourth in the Nations League, League A, Group 4, which consists of some other world beaters as well like Ukraine, Germany, and Spain of course. That said, they have managed to get their points through two draws against Germany, and a loss each against Ukraine and Spain. Last night, they took on Belgium, losing 2-1 courtesy of a brace from Michy Batshuayi.
Lucho will have a chance to solidify their spot on top of the group.

Spain, on the contrary, have enjoyed a fantastic start, losing just one game so far — the recent gameweek against Ukraine. Apart from that, it has been a bed of roses, with a draw against Germany also a more than an encouraging point. The 1-1 draw against the Netherlands will motivate them an awful lot, though, as they hope to depart to club football with a win against both Switzerland and Germany.

The last meeting between Spain and Switzerland ended in a 1-0 win for the Spaniards, with Mikel Oyarzabal scoring the only goal of the game early in the 14th minute. The Hard Tackle takes a closer look at this encounter.
Team News & Tactics

Vladimir Petkovic called up 24 players to his team for the games against Belgium, Spain, and Ukraine. Both Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri have been included in the team and are expected to feature tomorrow against Spain.

Yann Sommer is enjoying another brilliant season with Borussia Mönchengladbach, and there is little doubt over his starting spot in the team between the sticks. We expect Switzerland to revert to a four-person defence after fielding a backline of five against Belgium.

The duo of Nico Elvedi and Manuel Akanji will take on the pitch to shield Sommer in the heart of the defence, while Silvan Widmer and Ricardo Rodriguez are given the responsibility to provide the width from the back.

The second layer on the pitch will be a four-person midfield with two wide midfielders in the form of Eintracht Frankurt’s Steven Zuber on the left, while Premier League champions Xherdan Shaqiri on the right side. These two will be flanking a double pivot with Remo Freuler joining Granit Xhaka to provide safety to the backline.

Breel Embolo partnered Mario Gavranovic in the twin striker system upfront, but it is expected that the latter will replace Haris Seferovic in the team completing Embolo’s ball-playing ability.

Probable Lineup (4-4-2): Sommer; Widmer, Elvedi, Akanji, Rodriguez; Shaqiri, Freuler, Xhaka, Zuber; Seferovic, Embolo
