Sweden – Switzerland : Preview & Prediction
This Sweden-Switzerland is surely one of the most open matches of the round of 16. If Switzerland held its rank by finishing second behind Brazil, Sweden created the sensation. Thanks to a solid victory against Mexico (3-0), the Swedes managed to climb at the top of their group. Showing an irreproachable state of mind, the men of Janne Andersson hope to continue their journey. After eliminating the Netherlands in qualifying, Italy in the play-offs and Germany in the group phase, Sweden will continue to create the sensation. However, the task will not be easy in Switzerland. The team coached by Vladimir Petković showed a lot of good things in the group stages. After defeating Brazil, Xherdan Shaqiri’s teammates managed to overthrow Serbia to open the way to the round of 16. Despite a last draw against Costa Rica, Switzerland was able to secure its second place. Despite the suspensions of Stephan Lichtsteiner and Fabian Schär for this shock, the Swiss will have arguments to qualify for the future.
Switzerland has not lost since ten games. Solid.
Aside from losing to Portugal, the Swiss have not suffered the slightest setback since Euro 2016.
Sweden has lost three of its last seven games. Casually.
The Swiss have been very convincing against Brazil and Serbia.
The two teams have not clashed since 2002. The match ended with a 1-1 draw.
In recent years, Switzerland is often at the rendezvous. Led by very good players such as Ricardo Rodríguez or Granit Xhaka, the Swiss know the very high level. Very difficult to shake up, the team of Vladimir Petković should pose many problems to Sweden. If the Swedes stay on a convincing victory against Mexico, the match against Switzerland could be somewhat different. Despite the suspension of two major players (Stephan Lichtsteiner and Fabian Schär), the Swiss should have arguments to get by.
