Switzerland and the Czech Republic face off on Tuesday in a League A Group 2 Nations League showdown at AFG Arena. When these two teams faced off on June 2nd it was the Czech Republic that secured the 2-1 victory.
Switzerland comes into this game sitting in 3rd place in the standings having picked up six points. Switzerland’s last game came against Spain, and the offense was good, scoring two goals and that led to the 2-1 victory. Switzerland only had 25 percent of the possession, but finished with five shots on goal. Manuel Akanji and Breel Embolo scored the two goals. Manuel Akanji did pick up a yellow card in the last game, and he won’t be able to go in this game. Ricardo Rodriguez only played a half before having to come off, and it’s unclear if he’s going to be able to go in this game. Fabian Schar is expected to get the start in this game, and they need him to have a good game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Czech Republic who sit in 4th place in the standings having picked up four points. On Saturday the Czech Republic faced off against Portugal and the defense really struggled, giving up four goals and that led to the defeat. The Czech Republic only managed two shots on goal, and they had 44 percent of the possession. Jakub Brabec left the last game because of injury, and he’s not going to be able to go in this game. Petr Sevcik looked good off the bench in the last game, and he could start in this game.
Czech Republic’s offense looked awful in the last game, and I expect they are going to struggle again in this game. Switzerland is going to score at least two goals here, and this is going to be a very easy game for them. This should be a pretty comfortable win for Switzerland. Back Switzerland on the money line.
