Switzerland and the Czech Republic clash in League A Group 2 at Kybunpark on Tuesday night. Both teams are still in danger of relegation from the top flight of the UEFA Nations League.

On the weekend, the Rossocrociati stunned Spain with a 2-1 victory, while Jaroslav Silhavy’s squad was thrashed 4-0 by a Portuguese team.

Team News


  • Manuel Akanji, a defender for Switzerland and Manchester City, received his second yellow card of the tournament after opening the score against Spain. He will be one of two Rossocrociati players to miss the next match due to an accumulation of cards.
  • Jonas Omlin was also reprimanded for an infraction on the bench and will miss this match, although Yann Sommer reclaimed the gloves for the victory over Spain and was set to start here regardless.
  • Fabian Schar is expected to fill in for Akanji in the backline, whereas Ricardo Rodriguez was substituted at halftime in the previous game despite being ill before to the international break.

Czech Republic

  • As for the Czech Republic, central defender Jakub Brabec suffered an injury after 22 minutes against Portugal, therefore Ondrej Kudela should start in defense this week.
  • Petr Sevcik was well enough to come off the bench last time out after recovering from an illness, and he might push Alex Kral for his starting position, while Silhavy has other options in attack.
  • Schick’s penalty miss shouldn’t affect his hopes of consecutive starts, but Antonin Barak may fear for his position on the wing as Vaclav Cerny fights for a comeback to the starting lineup.

Possible Lineup

Switzerland: Sommer; Widmer, Elvedi, Schar, Rodriguez; Freuler, Xhaka, Sow; Shaqiri, Embolo, Vargas

Czech Republic: Vaclik; Kudela, Zima, Jemelka; Coufal, Sevcik, Soucek, Zeleny; Cerny, Schick, and Hlozek

Prediction Analysis

Even with Schick’s comeback, finding the back of the net has not been the Czech Republic’s strong suit, and Akanji’s absence is unlikely to aid the visitors in that area.

Switzerland can cause Silhavy’s team all sorts of issues as the visitors go all out to win, therefore we can only back the Rossocrociati to keep their League A position at the expense of their rivals.

Our prediction is Switzerland 2-0 Czech Republic
