Switzerland vs England (By: PlayMaker)
After the success at the 2018 World Cup finals, England with the reform of Southgate coach continued to impress in the UEFA Nations League when going to the final stage. Unfortunately, in the semifinals, they lost to the Netherlands after 120 minutes of playing. So tonight, they will have to kick the match with Switzerland, the team lost to Portugal 1-3 in the semifinals.
Looking back on history, we can see that England is completely superior to Switzerland. It is evident that in the last 7 encounters against this competitor since 2004, the Three Lions team has had 6 victories and not one defeat. The last time they met was in a friendly last September (ENG won 1-0).
Before losing to the Netherlands in the semi-finals, Southgate's team set up five consecutive victories in all competitions, including two destructive victories against Czech Republic and Montenegro in Euro 2020 qualifiers. In this middle, many pillars of the Three Masters have shown a marked decline after a long season. This is one of the reasons why they are unable to show themselves to Netherland. The more difficult it is for themwhen a few days ago, they had to stretch 120 minutes with the Netherlands, while Switzerland only played 90 minutes before Portugal. This difference is important at the end of the season.
Secondly, Switzerland is not highly appreciated for individual quality compared to England but this is a very cohesive and well organized group. In the semifinals, they once caused many difficulties for Portugal, even narrowly pulling the match to extra time. Before that, in the League A UEFA Nations League, the country team had a big surprise when crossing Belgium to be in the finals.
This match takes place on neutral ground in Portugal. The chances of the two teams are the same but as the underdog, Switzerland is considered the most valuable choice. After many failures against the Three Lions, this is the time when they have the best chance to reclaim the debt.
Both team have no pressure on this game so they should play attack all the way. Goal in HT is a good investment.
