Few people believed that Switzerland would have zero points after three matches, but that also happened. It all started with a 2-1 defeat by the Czech Republic, and it is evident that the Swiss could not recover from that failure, which immediately showed with a convincing 4-0 defeat by Portugal. After two consecutive away games, it was the turn of the home match against Spain, but the Swiss allowed the opponent to take the initiative very early in that match, and only one shot towards Spain’s goal shows how the home team players looked on the field. Given the current situation in the table, the Swiss were left without a chance to win first place, but we are confident that they will not allow the competition in the group stage to end without a single point or victory, so we expect to finally give a more serious resistance in the duel with Portugal.
🇵🇹 Cristiano Ronaldo has now reached 1⃣1⃣7⃣ goals for Portugal 👏

Seven goals scored and only one goal conceded were enough for the Portuguese national team to be in the leading position on the table after three matches, and the Portuguese are well on their way to securing a place in the next phase of the competition. After the draw against Spain 1: 1, they convincingly defeated the Swiss national team 4: 0 at home, and in that match we could see how much influence Cristiano Ronaldo has on the game of his team. Three days ago, the Czech national team visited Lisbon, and the players of the home team only had five minutes in the first half to “break” the opponent’s resistance, so the Portuguese came to a new victory, this time with a score of 2: 0. A possible triumph in the next match would significantly bring the placement in the next phase of the competition, so we do not doubt that the Portuguese will again put constant pressure on the opponent’s goal from the very beginning of the match.

Switzerland vs. Portugal Prediction
On Sunday, a duel of the first-placed and last-placed team in the group awaits us, with the Swiss already having practically no chances of placing in the next phase of the competition. In the first match played in Lisbon, the Swiss played unrecognizably bad, which the players of the home team were able to use in the right way. The Swiss are much more inconvenient at home, but they did not manage to materialize that advantage of the home field in the duel against Spain, so we expect that they will play well enough in the match with Portugal and will end a series of defeats. The Portuguese want to welcome the duel with Spain in the leading position on the table (most likely the duel between Portugal and Spain will decide which of these two national teams will take a place in the next phase of the competition), so victory against Switzerland is an absolute imperative for them. Fact that veteran Ronaldo will be in the starting lineup speaks volumes about the seriousness with which the visiting team will approach the match against the unpleasant Swiss.
