Football Whispers' Predictions for Spain vs Switzerland

Spain top Group 2 League A of the Nations League and will be looking to book their place in the knockout stage by beating Switzerland on Saturday. The visitors sit bottom of the group with just 3pts to their name and while they are the favourites for relegation, the Swiss could still qualify for the knockout round if they win both games and results elsewhere go in their favour.

Spain to Win-to-Nil

Spain have won four of their last seven head-to-heads with Switzerland, keeping a clean sheet in three of those victories, and we're backing the hosts to win-to-nil on Saturday. Spain have won four of their last six matches in all competitions and have managed to keep three clean sheets along the way, while the Swiss have lost four of their last six matches, three of which have been away from home, and have failed to score in two of their last three Nations League matches.

Under 2.5 Goals

We're not expecting a lot of goals in this game as each of the last six meetings between Spain and Switzerland have produced under 2.5 goals. Fewer than three goals have also been scored in three of Spain's last four outings and in three of Switzerland's last five fixtures, so you can see why we're betting against a goal-fest this weekend.

Spain looking to continue their unbeaten run

Spain enjoyed a perfect run of results in the last round of Nations League fixtures, claiming wins and clean sheets against Switzerland and the Czech Republic. Saturday's hosts are yet to taste defeat in this season's Nations League and we wouldn't bet against them going all the way to the final.

Spain Predicted Lineup: Robert Sánchez, David Raya, Unai Simón, César Azpilicueta, Hugo Guillamón, Pau Torres, Eric García, José Gayà, Diego Llorente, Jordi Alba, Dani Carvajal, Sergio Busquets, Marcos Llorente, Koke, Gavi, Pedri, Rodri, Carlos Soler, Álvaro Morata, Ferran Torres, Yeremy Pino, Marco Asensio, Pablo Sarabia, Borja Iglesias & Nico Williams.

Following their 1-0 defeat at home to Spain, Switzerland secured their first win of the Nations League at home to Portugal. That 1-0 victory has given the Swiss a slight chance of making the knockout stage but also a boost in their hopes of avoiding relegation to League B.

Switzerland Predicted Lineup: Yann Sommer, Jonas Omlin, Yvon Mvogo, Ricardo Rodriguez, Fabian Schär, Manuel Akanji, Nico Elvedi, Silvan Widmer, Kevin Mbabu, Eray Cömert, Xherdan Shaqiri, Granit Xhaka, Remo Freuler, Denis Zakaria, Djibril Sow, Renato Steffen, Fabian Frei, Michel Aebischer, Ardon Jashari, Haris Seferovic, Breel Embolo, Ruben Vargas, Cedric Itten & Dan Ndoye.

Team News

Spain: David de Gea, Aymeric Laporte, Iñigo Martínez, Thiago, Dani Olmo, Rodrigo and Mikel Oyarzabal have all missed out on call-ups.

Switzerland: Steven Zuber, Christian Fassnacht and Albian Ajeti are the noteworthy absentees from the visitors' squad.
