Victory for Switzerland in a high-scoring match
By all standards, this should be an easy fixture for Switzerland. The hosts have had a good run of results this year and playing against Liechtenstein comes at the perfect time for Vladimir Petkovic and his squad. The Swiss tactician averages 1.81 points per match since taking over La Nati in August 2014. He has won all his four fixtures in 2021, three of which have been at home. Liechtenstein comes into this game with three losses in all their games this year and faces tough opposition from 13th ranked Switzerland on the FIFA list. We also expect at least three goals in this game.
More than a goal in the first half
We are also tipping at least two goals in the first half. Switzerland is in great shape and with a good run of form in their last four games, averaging two goals in the first half of all those games. On the other hand, Liechtenstein has defensive worries coming into this game. The visitors only scored in one of their three games this year, something which should worry the visiting manager, Martin Stocklasa.
Both teams to score-No
This will be a difficult test for Martin Stocklasa. Since taking over Liechtenstein national soccer team in January 2021, he has managed three games and lost all of them. The visitors have scored only one goal this year in a home fixture against Iceland and conceded a total of 10 goals in three games. We think it would difficult for Liechtenstein to break through the Swiss defence that will feature top defenders such as Manuel Akanji Of Borussia Dortmund, Ricardo Rodriguez of Torino, Jordan Lotomba of OGC Nice, Silvan Widmer of FC Basel and among others. This game will most likely be a one-sided scoring affair in favour of Switzerland.
Game Preview: Switzerland Hopes for Victory against Struggling Liechtenstein
The La Nati has a good history against the visitors in previous competitive meetings and hopes for a third consecutive win against the visiting side. These teams met in August 2011, a fixture that the hosts won 2-1 on the road. The second meeting was a 3-0 victory in favour of the Swiss in Stockhorn Arena in Thun Switzerland. Do the visitors have a chance? Find out more in our detailed team preview below.
Switzerland, also known as La Nati, is the favourite to win this fixture. Manager Vladimir Petkovic has lots of options in all positions before Thursday. Forwards Haris Seferovic of Benfica Lisbon, Breel Embolo of Borussia M’gladbach and 31-year old Mario Gavranovic of Dinamo Zagreb should also make the starting lineup on Thursday. Midfielders Xherdan Shaqiri of Liverpool, Arsenal’s Granit Xhaka, Christian Fassnacht of Young Boys, Ruben Vargas of FC Augsburg, Remo Freuler of Atalanta and many others are also in contention for the international friendlies.
The visiting squad manager, Martin Stokclasa, came through under 15, under 19 and under 21 to be the national soccer team coach of Liechtenstein. He lost all five games with the under 15 side between 2017 and 2019. Martin Stokclasa would later become the coach for the under 19 where he again lost all three games. The tactician only managed one victory and lost the other nine games with the under 21 side. Since taking over the national team, Martin Stokclasa has lost all three games under his belt. The fourth fixture against Switzerland is undoubtedly a real test for the Liechtenstein manager. Liechtenstein has no player plying his trade in the major European soccer leagues and will bank on Dennis Salanovic of FC Thun and 31-year old goalkeeper, Benjamin Buchel of FC Vaduz, to mount a real challenge against Switzerland on Thursday 3rd June 2021.
