Serbia Team News

Serbia has come to this World Cup with a big ambition to archive good results and to go into the knockout phase. In the previous two World Cups Serbia, as an independent country, both times got eliminated in the group stage winning only two games. Before that, as Serbia and Montenegro in Germany in 2006, they finished the group stage without a single point.

Serbia is waiting for a big result in the World Cup since 1998 when they were defeated by the Netherlands in the round of 16. This time they have a good team, a good coach, and a good atmosphere before the World Cup, which usually is not the case.

But with all that, they produce two terrible performances in the first two games. Against Brazil, Serbia was terrible. They are struggling to create a chance and they didn’t deserve anything from that game. In the second game against Cameroon, they were fantastic in attack but terrible in defence. They created a lot of chances and easily can score more than three goals. But in defence, they allowed too much space, especially in the moments when they have a 3-1 lead, which is unacceptable.

For Serbia the calculation is simple – they must beat Switzerland if they want to finish in second place and also hope that Cameroon will not beat Brazil.

The only positive thing is that Serbia has a big room for improvement because they can produce a much better performance than these two in the first two games, especially since Dragan Stojkovic came as a coach.

Switzerland Team News

Switzerland is struggling in the first two games. They beat Cameroon 1-0 in the first round but the African selection played a very good game and was an equal opponent on the pitch. In the next round against Brazil, Switzerland is struggling again, like Serbia, to create something.

We can say that Switzerland is a much better-organized team in defence than Serbia. They didn’t allow too many chances to both Brazil and Cameroon and they are a tough team to break and beat.

They are a very experienced squad and know how to play on the result. In the last four big tournaments (EURO and World Cup) they always manage to qualify for the second round.

They finished their UEFA qualification group above Italy with only two goals conceded. Only Portugal and Czech Republic manage to score more than once against Switzerland in the last year and a half.

H2H

They meet four years ago in Russia when Switzerland come from behind and win 2-1 in one very tense game.

Team News and Injuries

Serbia: Strahinja Pavlovic is questionable.

Switzerland: No fresh injuries.

Serbia vs. Switzerland Prediction

This game will be more than a game. It’s a big rivalry. Serbian players want revenge for that defeat four years ago and between some Switzerland players and Serbian players, there is a lot of tension because of the origin of some Switzerland players.

The stake is very huge and this will be maybe the derby game of the third round in the group stage. Serbia must win, and Switzerland must escape defeat in this game.

We can expect a lot of tension on the pitch, a lot of fouls, and cards here.
