Portugal vs Switzerland Soccer Betting Prediction
Present in Group 3 of League A of the League of Nations, Portugal took top of the standings ahead of Italy and Poland. The partners of the former Monégasque Bernardo Silva first had to work to win against Italy (1-0) and Poland (3-2) before conceding 2 draws in Italy (0- 0) and against Poland (1-1) in the last 2 days. At the last rally in March, the team did not start well for Euro 2020. In fact, Portugal was held in check, at home each time, by Ukraine (0-0) and Serbia (1-1).
Switzerland is the surprise guest of these semifinals of League of Nations. Nati has a very good group stage to validate his ticket for the last square. The selection had no trouble dominating Iceland (6-0 at home and 2-1 away) and created the sensation against Belgium (1-2 away away and 5-2 win) at home on the final day). Last March, Switzerland first won in Georgia (2-0) before conceding at home the division of points against Denmark (3-3) in the first 2 days of Group D qualifying for Euro 2020.
Headcount for Portugal vs Switzerland
Back in the selection last March, Cristiano Ronaldo is still present for this rally and should be an offensive trio with Bernardo Silva and Guedes. The coach will also be able to rely on Rui Patricio, Pepe, Guerreiro, William Carvalho and Danilo executives. Young Ruben Dias, Ruben Neves, Guedes and Joao Felix are also taking on more responsibilities. Note the absence of lateral Cedric, middle Joao Mario and forwards Andre Silva and Gelson Martins.
For Switzerland, it is important to mention the absences of Schär and Shaqiri. Otherwise, Vladimir Petkovic did in the classic by selecting goalkeeper Sommer, defenders Lichsteiner and Rodriguez, midfielder Xhaka and forwards Embolo, Mehmedi and Gavranovic. The central hinge should be young Akanji and Elvedi while we should find in the midfield Freuler and Zakaria alongside the metronome Xhaka.
