Switzerland is undoubtedly capable of pulling off shocks. As a 13th ranked team, Switzerland is on the list of hot favorites for this world cup. Switzerland hasn’t won a World Cup so far. But they are having a golden generation. So, it’s their only opportunity to win the World Cup.Switzerland have lost two, but won three matches in their last five matches considering all competitions.
So surely, the Swiss team will try to give their best to clinch the long-awaited World Cup.
On the other hand, Serbia fought against the five-time world champion Brazil. Although they were far behind in terms of power, that did not let that void feel on the field.
The Serbian team didn’t win a single game so far in the world cup. On the other hand, the Swiss team made a good impression by defeating the Cameroon team. They almost stopped the mighty Brazilian team. However, the Swiss team was defeated by the Brazilian team. Still they showed a nice attack in the match.
Switzerland, the 13th team in FIFA ranking, is going to face the 25th team, Serbia. No doubt it will be a tough test for Serbia.
Serbia vs Switzerland Key Points
It is worrisome that Switzerland with so many stars failed to win any trophy yet. Yann Sommer(goalkeeper), Ricardo Rodriguez (Left-back or center-back), Granit Xhaka(midfielder), Remo Freuler(midfielder), XherdanShaqiri(Attacking midfielder) are all age big names in football. However, they failed to bring any trophy to the country. Several players are going to play their last World Cup. Surely, they’ll try their highest to clinch the trophy.
Yann Sommer(goalkeeper) is surely the savior of Switzerland. Surely all the spotlights will be upon him.
Serbia managed to keep the mighty Brazil scoreless for almost an hour. In their defense, they show great skill. However, a skilled finisher is needed to win this match which can be Metrovic. Aleksandar Metrovic can become the team’s leader.
Serbia vs Switzerland Head-to-Head
Serbia vs Switzerland have met once so far. Serbia was defeated by the Swiss team.
Absence of Yann Sommer is a blow for team Switzerland. He missed the first two group matches due to an ankle injury. In his absence, Jonas Omlin will be leading Switzerland to fulfill their dream.
Felipe Kostic, who was kicked out of the field against Brazil, remains a doubt. Dusan Vlahovic could be seen in the squad.
