Competition: Nations League
Market: Switzerland win
Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport
In what is a crucial showdown at the foot of the League A2 table on Tuesday night, Switzerland will welcome a struggling Czech Republic to St. Gallen.
Starting with the hosts, while Switzerland might have opened this year’s Nations League adventure in the midst of a worrying run of form, it appears that Murat Yakin’s men have come roaring back. Heading into the summer break back on June 12th with a stellar 1-0 victory at home against European giants Portugal, the Rossocrociati also laid down a famous marker on their return to action over the weekend. Despite being tipped as a huge underdog when they made the trip to former world champions Spain on Saturday night, Switzerland eventually snatched a 2-1 win in Zaragoza. Now clinching back-to-back League A2 victories and finding a route off the foot of the table, Yakin’s side are now sat in pole position to extend on their top-tier status. Riding a real wave, there is no doubt that the Swiss will be looking to sign off their campaign with another flurry here.
As for the visitors, despite opening this year’s Nations League adventure with a hard-fought victory against Tuesday’s opponents, the Czech Republic have rather drastically failed to keep up that momentum. Heading into the summer break with back-to-back 2-0 losses at the hands of Portugal and Spain, it appears that there could be some growing pressure on Jaroslav Šilhavý’s shoulders. Likewise, marking their return to action over the weekend with a woeful display as they were hit with a 4-0 drumming against the Seleção on home soil, the Czechs have also slumped to the foot of the League A2 table. Knowing that nothing short of a surprise victory here would see them avoid the drop, Tuesday’s guests have now lost each of their last three Nations League matchups by an aggregate score of 8-0. Given the recent gulf in class, we’re backing a home victory for Yakin’s rejuvenated squad here.
