Switzerland play host to the USA in this international friendly which is to be played at Kybunpark in St. Gallen.

Switzerland to Win
These two countries have met six times since 1990 and with 2 wins, three draws and 1 defeat it's Switzerland that lead the head-to-head record. Sunday's hosts are in good form right now having won each of their last four international matches against the likes of Finland, Lithuania, Bulgaria, and Ukraine. The USA are in decent form as well but they haven't been playing against the same strength of opposition as Switzerland.
Over 2.5 Goals
While games between these two countries have tended to be tight and tense over the years, one look at the two squads suggests that Switzerland will be the heavy favourites to win and stand a great chance of scoring a number of goals. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in four of Switzerland's and five of USA's last six international matches, and we're expecting more of the same on Sunday.
Haris Seferovic to Score
Haris Seferovic has scored 21-goals in 73 caps for Switzerland and is likely to start up-front for the hosts this weekend. The Benfica striker had a fabulous season in front of goal, scoring 26 times in 47 appearances across all competitions, so you can see just why we're backing him to find the back of the net against the USA.
Switzerland vs USA: Key Stats and Markets
Switzerland look to extend winning run at home to the USA
Switzerland made it four wins on the run when they beat Finland 3-2 in their last international match. Sunday's hosts will be looking to build up some momentum ahead of the upcoming Euros and a win against USA would get the ball rolling. Along with the above mentioned Seferovic, the Swiss squad is packed with experienced, well-known names that would easily get in their opposition's starting eleven including Mehmedi, Embolo, Zakaria, Shaqiri, Xhaka, Elvedi, Schar, Rodriguez and Sommer.
Only one of the USA squad has over 50 caps for his country, DeAndre Yedlin. The visitors still have a few familiar names in their side but not in goal. Horvath of Club Brugge is likely to start between the posts ahead of the uncapped duo of Ochoa and Odunze. Brooks, Ream and Yedlin make up the most well-known and experienced of the USA defenders, with 17-year-old Justin Che earning a call-up. In midfield, Acosta has the most caps but Juventus' McKennie is the most talented player and there is room for 18-year-old Musah who is looking for his 5th cap. Sargent provides the goal threat up-front with 5-goals in 13 games for his country and the uncapped Matthew Hoppe will be ‘hoping' to make his senior debut this weekend.
