PRE-MATCH ANALYSIS

The teams from the second trio of the Division A will start to compete in the Nations League tonight. Two World Cup’s participants will meet each other. Switzerland welcomes Iceland at its Kibunpark Stadium in Sankt-Gallen. Will the hosts protect their long unbeaten home streak?

Currently ranked eighth in the world, Switzerland looked strong going into the World Cup. Being impressing in the group stage when Vladimir Petkovic’s guys possessed the second place after Brazil. They earned five points as the result of one win and two draws. They beat Serbia 2:1, their encounters with Brazil and Costa Rica ended with a draw, 1:1 and 2:2, respectively.

Then Die Nati has been eliminated from the first round of play-offs by losing to Sweden 0:1. Switzerland is unbeaten on home ground since May 2016. The Swiss added some prominent victories to their history such as 2:0 over Portugal and 5:2 over Hungary.

Iceland’s first-ever World Cup, however, ended without a win as they finished bottom of their group. The Vikings lost to the reigning runners-up Croatia and Nigeria, 1:2 and 0:2, correspondingly. This meeting with the former World Cup’s vice-champion Argentina ended with a scoring draw 1:1. Iceland now has Erik Hamrén in charge.

 

Possible line-ups

Switzerland: Sommer; Mbabu, Akanji, Schär, Rodríguez; Xhaka, Widmer; Seferovic, Shaqiri, Zuber; Embolo

IcelandHalldorsson; Sævarsson, Sigurdsson, Ingason, Magnusson; Gíslason, Sigurdsson, Hallfredsson, Bjarnason; Sigurdarson, Bodvarsson

The last H2H meeting has been held five years ago and ended with a highly scoring draw 4:4. Some people from both sides will play tonight.

Despite an early elimination Switzerland demonstrated a good performance during the recent World Cup. Meanwhile Iceland dropped the first attempt. The home side kept its manager and general playing model. The away side is under reconstruction. We believe, Die Nati will continue its strong undefeated home line. We predict the Swiss team’s win and recommend to bet on this with a nice coefficient of 1.90.
