Serbia vs Switzerland Match Preview and Team News
After kicking off with a 2-0 loss to Brazil, Serbia looked set to bounce back in style when coming from behind to lead Cameroon 3-1. Dragan Stojkovic then tweaked his tactics to shore things up at the back, but that must surely go down as a missed opportunity for Serbia. Strahinja Pavlovic and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic scored in first-half added time, and Aleksandar Mitrovic netted early on in the second period. However, the Eagles were caught on the counter-attack twice in quick succession as Vincent Aboubakar and Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting leveled things up. Dušan Vlahović enjoys the field, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems because he passes through the defense like a fast train. Nemanja Gudelj found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy.
Switzerland put in a typically efficient display to defeat Cameroon 1-0 and then battled bravely versus Brazil before going down by the same scoreline. It took a Casemiro cracker on 83 minutes to break down the Rossocrociati’s resistance and set up this tense tussle. These sides met in Russia four years ago when Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri, who are both of Albanian-Kosovan heritage, were disciplined after making nationalist gestures during their side’s 2-1 win. Manager Murat Yakin is keen to avoid any more controversy and said: “We have to focus on football, just on football. Everything else I really don’t care about. “For both teams, this is a decisive game, and it will be an interesting and exciting game.” Xhaka plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup.
