On March 28, Stade de Genève (Geneva) will host the match of the second round of the Euro 2024 Qualification, in which Switzerland will compete with Israel. The battle will start at 20:45 CET.
The team, after a rather successful previous Euro, was forced to replace its coach. Having worked in a pretty good and continuous way, Petković changed the “surrounding”, deciding to move from the national team to Bordeaux (by the way, the decision is very unfortunate). It seems that Murat Yakin succeeded for a long time. The qualification for the World Cup, where it overcame Italy, good results in the UEFA Nations League (9 points in the group with Spain, Portugal and Czech Republic), and victories in the battles against Cameroon and Serbia at the group stage of the World Cup in Qatar prove the higher mentioned fact. Then, the national team, somehow, collapsed, conceding 6 goals from “the Navigators” who played without Ronaldo. Thus, the current matches are another chance to rehabilitate. It all started with a formal away match against Belarus in Novi Sad. There, “the Nati” did not have any troubles – the nominal hosts were not able to respond to 5 goals.
The national team was able to get a ticket to League A of the UEFA Nations League in the previous year. To do this, being under the rule of a new mentor, Alon Hazan, it was enough to beat Albania twice, and draw both matches with Iceland. It is reasonable to recall that the Russian national team was supposed to play in the same quartet, but it had been disqualified. On the other hand, the previous autumn brought to “the White and Blues” the defeats in control matches made by modest opponents as Malta (1-2) and Cyprus (2-3). That is why one should not overestimate the level of this team. Moreover, this thought was confirmed by the match of the first round with Kosovo. It lost the 1st half due to an own goal, and everything that happened after led to a draw. Let’s note Solomon – it was the assist of the ex-player of Shakhtar to Peretz who scored – 1-1.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
The teams played head-to-head matches in the interval of 2004-2009 – those were the battles in two qualifications for the world championships. And there were no options – each of four matches ended in a draw.
Bookmakers believe that Murat Yakin’s wards will be able to win. It is worth betting on Switzerland with “a -1.5 goal handicap” (odd: 2.0).
