Serbia vs Switzerland Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
This Friday, Serbia, and Switzerland will face off in the second round of their campaign in Group E. This should be a fun game for all the football viewers as it is bound to deliver lots of chances, goals, and most importantly betting opportunities.
Serbia is placed first in the group with three points from their win over Costa Rica. They won by the score of 1-0. The Los Ticos, arguably, had a better first half then the Serbians. In the second, everything changed when the Serbs started attacking more and defending with high pressure. By doing so they managed to win the majority of duels in the middle of the field and go straight towards the opponent’s goal. By doing so, they created lots of chances, and in all honesty, they should have won by a bigger margin. Their striker, Aleksandar Mitrovic missed a few very good chances, and with other, they just lacked composure in the final moments of the attack. Aleksandar Kolarov of Roma secured a win for Serbia with a great free kick mid-second half. The Serbian squad is filled with talented players and this opening win caused a big morale boost so we expect them to play even better coming into this clash. It is worth noting that the starting eleven of Serbia have played their first match together and somehow managed to work fine. Coach Krstajic took a big risk by using the 20-year-old center back Milenkovic as a started. In the end, he exceeded the expectations and played a great match.
Switzerland is coming out of their clash against Brazil with an amazing draw, something that could be a determining factor at the end of the group campaign. The Brazilian team should have been dominant when we look at the players that they have, but things are not always that simple. The South Americans had the incentive up until Coutinho's goal and after that, they slowed down giving the Swiss a chance to recover. Switzerland kept their composure and managed to equalize in the fiftieth minute of the game. Zuber scored followed by an assist from Shaqiri. Brazil had 20 shots on goal compared to just six by the Europeans. They managed to minimize Neymar’s influence on the game by always having one or two men on him and by committing fouls when there was nothing else to do. In the end, their efforts paid off and they managed to get a draw.
The two teams have never played a match against each other. Despite that, the tensions before the game are high as a lot of ethnic Albanians are playing for Switzerland. There have been comments from both sides trying to disrupt the other team. Judging by the buildup for the match, it is likely that we will see lots of great football with strong duels. Both squads possess the quality to progress to the knockout phase and this might just be the most important game of the tournament for them as they are a direct competitors for the second place in the group, only if Brazil step up their game. For now, on paper at least, Serbia has the biggest chances to go further.
