Both Switzerland and Spain will aim to end their losing start to the UEFA Nations League when they face off on Thursday in Geneva.
One could say a slow start is the theme of Switzerland this month of June, after a 4-0 defeat in their UEFA Nations League A Group 2 match against Portugal on Sunday. However, with the crop of talents they parade, bouncing back is very possible. The loss means Switzerland sits at the bottom of Group A2.
In this match, we expect that the fear of being relegated to League B for the first time will be a motivation for the players when they match to the field on Thursday night.
Switzerland will also draw motivation from the fact that Spain has only won them once in their last 3 meetings.
Moreover, things are not also rosy for Switzerland’s opponent, Spain, after a 2-2 draw in their last match against the Czech Republic.
The 2010 world cup winners, who sit third in the group, will want a repeat of their EURO 2020 meeting in the quarterfinals where they progressed via penalties, but this time in regulation time.
