Switzerland vs Spain, UEFA Nations League 2020-21, Match Preview

Switzerland will host Spain in the must-win game of UEFA Nations League 2020-21. It’s a game between a top side and a bottom side in group A4. If the Swiss side fails to get points, they will be knocked out of the next round. 

Match Prediction: Nov 15, 1:15 AM 

Team Preview 

Switzerland are coming off a 2-1 defeat to Croatia as Pasalic scored the final goal in the 67th minute. Vladimir Petkovic's team are placed at the bottom in their respective group, picking just two points from their four matches. Last month, they also lost to Spain, and their best game came against Germany in a draw. Swiss side made into the 2019-19 semifinal, but this edition is not delivering the same results. They also have qualified for next summer’s European Championship. 

In the next Nations League outing, they suffered a 1-0 loss to Spain as the Swiss side didn’t find the equaliser after Oyarzabal’s 14th-minute strike. Switzerland held Germany for a 3-3 draw in an away-fixture in the last outing, so they are the underdogs who can spoil Spain’s party. 

Meanwhile, Spain’s campaign is going strong in group A4. They thrashed Ukraine 4-0 and held Germany to a 1-1 draw in September. Luis Enrique's side added six points in October with 1-0 margin victories over Switzerland and Ukraine. They are confident to make it into the next round. Spain are unbeaten in all competitions since the 2018-19 Nations League defeats against England and Croatia. 

Spain are at the top of the table in their group, one point behind Germany. If they drop points here and Germany manages to get three points against Ukraine in the home-game, they will slip to the 2nd spot. On the other hand, Ukraine can also upstage Spain if they pull off a win against Germany.
