Portugal: Four draws in a row ( Recent Form: W D D D D )

The European Champion of 2016 is currently in transition. With Cristiano Ronaldo, Jose Fonte, Pepe and with drawbacks Joao Moutinho Fernando Santos has only four veterans in the squad. All around, a new team is built, which has to carry itself alone after a possible departure from superstar Ronaldo. Recently, this worked quite well, because after the World Cup final against Uruguay, there were no defeats in eight games. However, Fernando Santos is currently not very happy, because with two draws against Ukraine and Serbia, the European champion has started a bit slow in the European Championship qualifier. All in all, there are four draws in a row and never have more than two goals been scored. This means that in the match between Portugal and Switzerland we should keep an eye on the odds for a tie with underlings. Fernando Santos, who is an advocate of the defensive style of play, will also set against the Swiss to a compact defense. That was also the case in the last qualifier at home against the Serbs. After seven minutes, Serbia took the lead 1-0. After half an hour Cristiano Ronaldo had to be replaced injured. Danilo Pereira was just before the break with the 1-1 final score on the spot. Portugal had more of the game, but in the end the points were fine. Fernando Santos has not made much changes in the squad for the Nations League. We could have imagined some interesting names in the squad. For example, the Munich Renato Sanches was not nominated. The same applies to Andre Silva from Sevilla FC or Joao Mario from Inter Milan. In the future Fernando Santos will probably focus more on talented young talent, such as young Joao Felix of Benfica, Lisbon. Due to injury Rony Lopes and Andre Gomes had to cancel their participation in the Final Four.


Switzerland: After two away wins ( Recent Form: W L W W D )

Switzerland has now established itself in the enlarged world. Therefore, it is no surprise that Vladimir Petkovic's team was able to gain the upper hand in the Nations League, even against such a strong counterpart as Belgium. However, there is already a clear gap between the performance in the own stadium and in the foreign. The last away games in top teams have all lost the Swiss. After all, there were recent victories in Iceland and Georgia in foreign lands. Overall, this is not the trigger to give in the duel between Portugal and Switzerland a tip on an away win of the Confederates after 90 minutes. The Swiss are also in a small upheaval. That under these conditions not everything works, is clear. Nevertheless, the Swiss have only taxed the EM 2020 as a long-term goal. Until then, Vladimir Petkovic wants to bring his team the first ever title for Switzerland in the Nations League. The last international match at the end of March in the World Cup qualifier against Denmark has revealed light and shadow in the Nati. For long stretches Switzerland had the game firmly under control. Remo Freuler, Granit Xhaka and Breel Embolo brought the Swiss 3-0 forward. In the end, the Confederates had to settle for a 3: 3. This game is now ticked off and Vladimir Petkovic looks only forward. He wants to win for himself, his team and the whole country victory in the Nations League. Especially disappointed but captain Stephan Lichtsteiner has left for vacation. The defender from London has been singled out by coach Vladimir Petkovic. Although the coach announced that this decision does not have to apply for the internationals in the coming season, we assume that the Nati career of the 35-year-old should probably be over. Two Bundesliga legionnaires are also missing injured. Admir Mehmedi and Breel Embolo are not available in this Final Four.



After all, the matches of Portugal last time took place very closely. Coach Santos's team put heavy emphasis on defense. That makes Portugal's last 4 matches less than 2 goals. The next match is no exception.
