The Swiss had high ambitions, but they already suffered two very painful defeats in the first two rounds. In the first round, they were defeated by the Czech Republic with 2: 1, and even then it became clear that the Swiss will have a lot of problems in achieving the result step forward this season. Another very difficult visit followed, and it was expected that the Swiss would manage to offer more serious resistance to the Portuguese national team. However, the Portuguese had a total initiative from the beginning of the match, but we must say that the course of the match could have been completely different if Seferovic’s goal had not been annulled. However, Portugal used almost every chance to score a goal and in the end celebrated with a convincing 4-0, while the Swiss, thanks to that defeat, reached an almost hopeless situation. This will be their last chance to get involved in the fight for placement in the next phase of the competition, and in such a situation, the advantage of the home field could be a very important factor.

On the eve of the start of this competition, the Spaniards were declared one of the main favorites to win the trophy, but things are not going according to plan for now. In the first round, they missed a good opportunity to beat the Portuguese at home, who are also the main candidates in the fight for the first place on the table, but thanks to the cheaply received goal, they managed to win only one point. It seemed that they would annul that failure on the visit of the Czech national team, but the Czechs provided an unexpectedly strong resistance, and the Spaniards managed to avoid defeat with great difficulty. The Czechs had an advantage twice in the match, but they did not have enough concentration to last until the end, which Martinez was able to punish in the ninetieth minute. Given the very high ambitions, a possible failure against Switzerland would mean the end of all hopes for the Spaniards to reach the first position in the table, and we believe that the players of the visiting team understand the seriousness of the current situation, and that they will be very motivated in the duel with Switzerland.

Switzerland vs. Spain Prediction
Spain is one of the main candidates for winning the League of Nations trophy, and they should not have allowed themselves so many failures. They lost four valuable points in the first two rounds, so for them, winning the duel with Switzerland is an absolute imperative. In the first two rounds, the Swiss definitely disappointed their fans with their very poor approach and sacrifice on the field, and even six goals conceded is a sufficient sign that something in their national team is not working. For Spain, this is the last opportunity to join the fight for the first place with Portugal, and for that reason, we believe that the players of the Spanish national team will confirm on the field that they are superior than the Swiss at this moment.
