Switzerland is welcoming Germany to St. Jakob-Arena in round 2 in the UEFA Nations League.
Overall, Switzerland is a good team that is playing well on both ends, but they are have entered this cycle without a few important players, and the lack of depth is visible. Switzerland was playing against Ukraine on the road a few days ago, and they have had 56% of ball possession in that game, 1 shot on goal, 5 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and a solid 88% of the correct passes. Switzerland has lost this match 2-1. Haris Seferovic is the only goalscorer for Switzerland for now, while Xhaka added 1 assist. Switzerland is playing well, and they are in high 12th place in the FIFA table. Since Vladimir Petkovic took over the Swiss national team back in 2014, Switzerland has been improving and they have had some notable results, but they are still far from the best teams in Europe. With 34 wins, 10 draws, and 17 losses, Petkovic is one of the most successful coaches in the Swiss national team history. Overall, Switzerland is a good team, but when they have their strongest lineup at their disposal, but even without their best players in the lineup, Switzerland can be pretty competitive.
Germany has lost only 1 of their last 13 games, and during their last 3 Euro cup qualification games, Germany has scored 13 goals while conceding only 1 goal. In their latest match against Spain just a few days ago, Germany was solid with 41% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 83% of the correct passes. Germany was fast, precise, and exciting in this match, but they were struggling with finishing their chances, and they had so many. Despite their inefficiency, Germany scored a goal in the 51st minute and was defending well after that, but in the 95th minute, Germany conceded a goal, and this match ended in a 1-1 draw. Werner is the only goalscorer for Germany so far in this competition, while Gosens has 1 assist. Germany is of the best teams in the world, and once the rest of their players are back, Germany might just win the Euro Cup next year. Germany also has one of the longest-lasting coach, Joachim Low who was signed back in 2006, and since then, Germany has won the World Cup, 2nd, and two 3rd places in the Euro Cup, Confederations Cup, and 3rd place in the World Cup in 2010. Germany is a good team, with great defense, great goalkeeping, and more importantly, with a strong offense.
When Switzerland and Germany meet, we usually see a lot of goals. Both Switzerland and Germany are coming with weaker rosters, but the difference is that Germany has a lot more depth and their weaker lineup is much stronger than Switzerland. I think Germany will get a nice win here and score a few goals along the way.
