Switzerland – Croatia : Preview & Prediction
Excellent against Germany a month ago (1-1), Switzerland welcomes Croatia this Wednesday for an international friendly match. On its lawn at Kybunpark in Saint Gall, the Nati will have the task of staying the course, before moving back to back to Spain and then to Germany, as part of the Nations League. Before these two trips, oh so complicated for them, Petkovic’s men will certainly want to do well, against a Croatian team which has been taking water in recent months defensively. Humiliated by Portugal (4-1) then France (4-2) last month, the checkered defense is indeed below what it has been in the past, and Subasic’s retirement definitely seems to be doing a lot of hurt Dalic’s men. Against a talented opponent who showed very good things against Germany four weeks ago, the finalists of the last World Cup can therefore fear another complicated game far from home. Switzerland shone for its last outing, it is up to them to prepare as best as possible for their prestigious trips to the Nations League.
Against Germany, Switzerland had been excellent a month ago (1-1).
On Swiss soil, apart from a bizarre match against Qatar in 2018, the Nati have been undefeated for 19 games.
Before its very good draw against Germany (1-1), Switzerland had won its last 3 games at home (Gibraltar, Ireland, Georgia).
Croatia remains on two heavy defeats (4-1 in Portugal and 4-2 in France).
Away, Croatia have not won for 4 games.
Worse, the Croats have won only one of their last 9 trips!
Before facing two big names in the League of Nations in the coming days, Switzerland will certainly want to do well against Croatia at home. In great difficulty when it comes to travel for two years, Dalic’s men are likely to experience another complicated match. Success of Switzerland therefore, for this prognosis.
