Prediction and odds for the game: Switzerland (29/10) vs Spain (10/11)
We are backing the away win
When: Saturday, 14th November 2020, Kick-off 19:45
Where: St. Jakob Park
On Saturday night, Switzerland host Spain at St. Jakob-Park in Group A4 of the Nations League, as the visitors attempt to retain their top spot in the group.
The home side finished fourth place in the maiden edition of the Nations League, losing on penalties against England in the third-place play-off after a 3-0 defeat against Portugal in the competition’s semi-final.
They have not failed well in the competition of late either, as they head into this game without a win in the Nations League in six matches, having picked up three draws and suffered three defeats.
Switzerland’s recent form in all competitions has been poor, as Vladimir Petkovic’s team has failed to win in their last six international games, having suffered four defeats. They have also lost three of their last four international matches. Their biggest problem of late has been conceding too many goals, as Switzerland have conceded at least twice in three of their last four games. The home team has an inconsistent recent home record in all competitions, winning three of their previous seven matches on home soil.
La Roja heads into this game in inconsistent form, as Luis Enrique’s team has won just one of their last four international games. A lack of goals has been a major issue of late for the visitors, as they have scored just two goals in their last four matches. The lack of goals has led to their being under 2.5 goals scored in their last four outings. The fact that the visitors have kept clean sheets in five of their last eight international matches has also been a factor.
Surprisingly, Spain have a poor record in the Nations League, winning just two of their previous seven matches in all competitions. One of those two wins came in a 1-0 win over Switzerland in the reverse fixture. The game produced another low-scoring match for the visitors in the Nations League, as three of their four matches have produced under 2.5 goals.
La Roja have a poor away record in the competition too, winning just once in their four matches on their travels. Enrique’s team has also failed to win in their last three away games in the Nations League.
Despite the quality available to Spain head coach Luis Enrique, Spain have struggled for results of late. However, Switzerland’s recent form has been even worse. We are backing Spain’s superior quality to shine. The other bet we recommend is that this game will be low-scoring, simply because of the visitor’s lack of goals and defensive record.
Verdict: We are backing the away win at odds of 10/11 and/or under 2.5 goals scored also sat odds of 10/11 (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
