Winning soccer predictions for Switzerland vs Iceland
Switzerland faces Iceland in a match of the UEFA Nations League. The match will be played on Saturday, September 8, at the Kybunpark stadium in St. Petersburg.
Switzerland and Iceland came into Group 2 of the strongest League A of the new UEFA Nations League. Both countries will have a rival in this group and the bronze medalist from the World Cup 2018 Belgium, who is in the first round. Switzerland and Iceland also participated in the World Cup 2018, for both countries the participation in the tournament ended in a different way. The hosts reached the stage of direct elimination, where the 1/8-finals dropped from Sweden after defeat 0:1. Switzerland, however, presented itself worthy in Russia after having managed to leave a group with the teams of Serbia, Brazil and Costa Rica, which speaks of a well-done job.
Iceland’s team failed to win a single World Cup match in 2018 and is currently unsuccessful in seven consecutive matches, losing five of them. The Icelanders made a promising 1:1 draw against Argentina in the first round of the group stage of the world finals, but then lost to Nigeria and Croatia, leaving them in the last place in their group. Whether we can talk about a crisis in the Icelandic team will understand in the next matches, because for quite some time the Scandinavians have no victory. For the last time they won 4:1 against Indonesia in an informal friendly match in January this year.
During the world qualifying, the team of Switzerland recorded four wins in five games on their own pitch. The hosts also retained four dry nets, allowing only Hungary to score in the 5-2 win in October 2017. Switzerland won six of its last seven home games, defeating valuable teams such as Portugal and Slovenia for that period.
Vladimir Petkovic has stopped his best players for the upcoming match as we will see players such as Xherdan Shaqiri and Granit Xhaka. In my opinion the hosts are in a much better shape and will start their participation in the UEFA Nations League with a victory against the Icelandic team.
