Switzerland vs Portugal: prediction for the Nations League match

On June 12, the Red Crosses will host the Selecao for the Nations League clash. What to expect from this battle? The answer is in our prediction.

Switzerland

One year ago, Switzerland national team put up a great performance at Euro 2020, no one expected a success from the team in the group stage, but Nati managed to advance into the playoffs and to beat France in the first knock-out round. Hosts were not so fortunate in the quarter-final though and suffered a defeat to Spain. 

In eight rounds of the World Cup qualification the Red Crosses have recorded five victories and three draws, delivering 18 points and a top spot in the standings. 

In the first match of the Nations League Swiss team has suffered a defeat to Czech Republic (1:2), which followed by a heavy defeat to Portugal (0:4). In the latest round the Red Crosses were beaten by Spain at home (0:1), so team is currently at the bottom spot in the standings. 

Portugal

Portugal national team barely made it past the group stage at Euro 2020. Selecao earned only one victory and one draw in the group, which was enough for a play-off spot, but Fernando Santos' men were unable to advance through the round of 16 - they got eliminated by Belgium (0:1). 

In eight rounds of the World Cup qualification visitors have recorded five victories and two draws, delivering 17 points and a 2nd spot in the standings. In the semi-final of the knock-out stage Portuguese side beat Turkey (3:1) and then coasted past North Macedonia (2:0). 

In the first match of the Nations League visitors drew to Spain (1:1) and then easily beat Switzerland (4:0). In the previous round Portuguese side secured a home victory over the Czech Republic (2:0).

Prediction

Switzerland national team got off to a slow start in the Nations League. Players are surely exhausted after a long season, plus Nati have not so many rotation options. Nonetheless, we think that team has room for an improvement, hosts should be able to put up a fight against Portugal. In 3 of 5 latest head-to-head matches no more than two goals were scored and we are expecting the same result here. 

Our prediction - total under 2,5 goals

In our opinion, hosts should be able to satisfy their fans and to finish the first set of Nations League matches with at least one point in the asset. Two latest away matches of Portugal finished in draws, so we are expecting the same result today. 

Our second bet is on a draw

Prediction: draw
