Nations League: Switzerland vs Germany

The two sides are looking to win their first UEFA Nations League 2020-21 victory in the second match, which will meet on Sunday as Switzerland face Germany at St.Jakob-Park in Group A4. Switzerland kicked off their campaign with a 1-2 defeat to Ukraine, while Germany lost a heartbreaking 3 points at the last minute to Spain as they had only 1 draw at home.

Celtic's new talent Albian Ajeti came on from the bench for the final 20 minutes in Switzerland's defeat to Ukraine, but if Petkovic chooses the attacking force there is only one striker again, It is difficult to see Seferovic leave the field. However, with the quick pivots in matches and the strength of his opponents, Petkovic had to balance a new squad and avoid breaking harmony. Renato Steffen and Michel Aebischer are the two players who will be sidelined to start being substituted on Thursday. Switzerland had the worst start to happen in the Nations League 2020-21 when they suffered a narrow defeat against Ukraine. Andriy Yarmolenko's heel strike put the hosts ahead just 14 minutes before Haris Seferovic scored an equalizer for Switzerland just before the end of the first half, but there will be another Ukrainian in the Premier League who will decide the game as Oleksandr Zinchenko's stunning slap hits Switzerland down. Vladimir Petkovic's army will certainly feel that their clash with Ukraine may be their easiest game to win in the group stage, but there is still plenty of time for Switzerland to turn things around despite their stalwarts.

Die Mannschaft has confirmed that Kai Havertz has left the team hotel for a move to Chelsea and manager Low may decide to return to the four-man defense with a win in their sights later this week, which is to be expected. Julian Brandt can be seen back on the left flank. Matthias Ginter could also start in the center of the German defense, but Emre Can has impressed in the draw with Spain and will look to keep his place here. Meanwhile, Germany looked sure to take all three points in the clash with Spain, but Joachim Low's pupils were equalized by Jose Gaya in stoppage time at the end of the game after Timo Werner of Chelsea opened the scoring. Germany are still looking for their first Nations League victory by drawing 2 and losing 2 in matches in 2018-19 despite a lack of Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig players following their European feat earlier in the season. summer, but a quality team from Die Mannschaft is sure to aim for a final, and thus, scoring their first three points against Switzerland this weekend. of paramount importance to them.
