Serbia vs Switzerland PREVIEW & PREDICTION 22/06/2018


Hard game is what awaits us this Friday in Group E of the Russia 2018 World Cup, when Serbia and Switzerland go out to play their qualification to the knockout stage, in play to be played at the Kaliningrad Stadium in the city of Kaliningrad.


The run by Mladen Krstajic debuted with the right foot after beating 1-0 to Costa Rica and in this way Serbia not only added its second consecutive victory, remembering that before the debut they beat Bolivia 5-1, but again get a World Cup triumph after eight years when he beat Germany 1-0 at the 2010 World Cup, thanks to Milan Jovanovic’s goal.

Serbia knows a triumph here will be very important for the aspirations of achieving their goal of reaching the round of 16, and is that it is clear that the group stage closes before the favorite by the majority to stay with the title in Russia 2018 as it is Brazil, so Krstajic decides to keep the same eleven of the debut.


Meanwhile, those led by Vladimir Petkovic could also get a good result in the debut, and that is to get a point to Brazil will not be easy for the rest of the selections that make up the group, that will certainly not serve that point if this Friday is not won against the direct rival to fight for one of the two places as Serbia.

With the tie to Brazil, the Swiss national team has a seven-game unbeaten streak where four were victories, and it is decided to maintain this positive streak against Serbia on Friday and for which Petkovic will not make any variant and so will rely on the speed of Xhaka and Shaquiri, not to mention Dzemaili and Seferovic.

Possible alignments:

Serbia: Stojkovic; Ivanovic, Milenkovic, Tosic, Kolarov; Milivojevic, Matic, Tadic, Milinkovic-Savic, Ljajic; Mitrovic.

Switzerland: Sommer; Lichtsteiner, Schar, Akanji, Rodriguez; Behrami, Xhaka, Shaqiri, Dzemaili, Zuber; Seferovic.

PREDICTION: Both teams to score / NO @ 1.72
