PRE-MATCH ANALYSIS

Another game of Wednesday night will be held at Nizhniy Novgorod Stadium when the potential participant of play-off stage Switzerland will meet a simple loser Costa Rica. Will Swiss strengthen their tournament status?

As a result, Vladimir Petkovic’s side now begin their final Group E fixture against Costa Rica knowing that a draw is all they need to secure a place in the Round of 16. Moreover, Switzerland have history on their side. On each of the two previous occasions that the teams have met, neither of them coming at a World Cup, the Central Europeans have emerged victorious. In actual fact, Switzerland have never lost to a CONCACAF nation at the world’s premier tournament.

However, even though their hopes of advancing to the second phase have already been dashed, Los Ticos will be doing their utmost to avoid returning home empty handed. Having lost to Serbia by just a single goal and holding firm until stoppage time against Brazil, their defensive solidity – built upon the foundations laid by star goalkeeper Keylor Navas – is beyond reproach. It is now high time their forwards came to the party too.

Possible Line-ups:
Switzerland: Yann Sommer; Stephan Lichtsteiner, Fabian Schar, Manuel Akanji, Ricardo Rodriguez; Valon Behrami, Granit Xhaka; Xherdan Shaqiri, Blerim Dzemaili, Steven Zuber; Mario Gavranovic.

Costa Rica: Keylor Navas; Johnny Acosta, Giancarlo Gonzalez, Oscar Duarte, Bryan Oviedo, Cristian Gamboa; Celso Borges, David Guzman, Bryan Ruiz, Christian Bolanos; Marco Urena. ​

The minimum requirement for Swiss, to guarantee progression, is a draw. Based on their performances in the first two games, they are more than capable of getting it, and should be aiming to win this one comfortably. Remembering Vladimir Petkovic’s team in the continental qualifying stage and in some friendlies especially against Spaniards we consider this as arguments in favor of its win. We advise ro ber on the favorite’s victory with a working coefficient of 1.75.
