Serbia vs Switzerland Today’s Soccer Prediction


Serbia lead Group E surprisingly after beating outsiders 1-0 after Brazil and Switzerland drew one on Matchday 1 of the group. Thus, Serbia could already fix the rise in the duel against the Confederates, if the team of coach Mladen Krstajic should succeed in deciding this meeting for themselves. However, according to our forecast, this endeavor will be anything but easy, as Switzerland presented itself in the game against WM Favorit Brazil, especially in terms of tactics and team unity. The fact that Serbia needed a stroke of genius against outsiders Costa Rica in the form of an unbelievable free-kick goal by Sergej Kolarov and did not make it out of the game does not exactly speak for our team in Serbia. However, according to our analysis, the Serbs have not yet reached their full potential against Costa Rica, which is why we expect both sides of the match to be at about the same level. According to our prognosis, Switzerland has a slight advantage in that the Confederates could possibly already draw. The Swiss “Nati” will meet Costa Rica in the last group match and thus the outsider in Group E, while Serbia will have fewer chances against Brazil. Therefore, our forecast is based on a wait-and-see Swiss team, which will not take too much risk and will increasingly wait for counterattack. Serbia should not let itself be lured too far out of its own half and must take care to maintain the balance between the team members. According to our prediction, the team of Coach Krstajic has to rely on playful solutions and quick combinations in order to prevail against the compact defensive of the Swiss “Nati”. With players such as Nemanja Matic, Dusan Tadic, Adem Ljajic or Sergei Milinkovic-Savic is also the corresponding staff in the ranks of the Serbs. Due to the expected gameplay, in which both teams wait and do not risk too much, we expect a match with few goals and recommend a placement of less than 2.5 hits in the game.


This result had probably before the start of the 2018 World Cup probably the least on the screen: Switzerland brought against WM Favorit Brazil a fully deserved 1-1 draw after the Confederates had already gone with a backlog into the half-time break. The Brazilian leadership earned at that time scored Philippe Coutinho with a wonderful brace from the penalty area corner and thus provided for the expected half-time. Only 5 minutes after the restart, however, Hoffenheim legionnaire Steven Zuber scored in a corner kick and brought the favorites from South America back under pressure. Before, however, Zuber had gained some space with a questionable romp against Miranda, but the referee did not punish him. Thus, the Swiss also had a bit of luck on their side in this situation. From that point on, however, the Swiss appeared with more self-confidence and fighting spirit, whereas Brazil became less and less fair as the playing time progressed. Even after the equalizer, the Selecao still had much more play than the “Nati”, but the Brazilians did not really know what to do with them, which was mainly due to the courageous fighting performance of the Swiss team. With runners discipline and tactical skill, the “Nati” understood how to reduce the opponent to a large extent by narrowing the spaces around his own penalty and relieving the Brazilians with counterattacks after losing the ball. In the game against Serbia, we expect a similarly waiting game of the Swiss national team, as this duel could already represent a small preliminary decision in Group E. Above all, the Serbian team needs more than the full three points from Switzerland, as Serbia will play their last game against Favorit Brasilien, while Switzerland still has to fight against outsiders Costa Rica. Due to the expected tactics ban on both sides, we expect a duel with few goals, in which both teams wait for mistakes of the opponent.

Since this game could be predecessor in the further course of Group E according to our prediction, we expect both teams initially with a correspondingly cautious game system. Both Serbia and Switzerland will wait for their opponents’ mistakes and avoid moving too far to provoke dangerous counter-attacks.
